The Yakovlevs | Aviation Legends

  • 350,000+ miles flown
  • More than one billion people entertained
  • 1000+ displays delivered


The Yakovlevs are a UK based six-aircraft formation and aerobatic display team who have earned a reputation for excellence over the last 17 years, delighting well over a billion people in the process, across four continents. In 2012 the team broke China Central Television (CCTV) viewing figures, attracting more than 380 million spectators over a five-day period when they were displaying at Faku on the North Korean border for the first ever AOPA China Airday. Consummate believers in pushing the boundaries of high performance, The Yakovlevs exude the highest of standards in every aspect of their operation. The team is a specialist airborne display team flying authentic cold war Russian war-bird aircraft in precise, yet graceful combinations of tight formations and exciting aerobatics, high speed passes and breath-taking crosses.

Yak HQ is now in a brand new facility on Henstridge Airfield, in Somerset. With state-of-the-art modern corporate facilities, it is an ideal location to meet the team, hold your own meetings or take part in some inspiring leadership development that is based on hard earned experience.



The Royal Aeronautical Society is the world’s only professional body dedicated to the aerospace community, it exists to further the advancement of aeronautical art, science and engineering around the world & for promoting that species of knowledge which distinguishes the profession of Aeronautics. The Yakovlevs are not only very proud to be associated with this society but also have an elected member flying with the team.
