WELCOME

The Yakovlevs are a UK based six-aircraft formation and aerobatic display team who have earned a reputation for excellence over the last 18 years, delighting well over two 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.

Our headquarters are at 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.

Also, with 800 sqm of hangar space we have more than enough room to entertain up to 200 people at a time, so book us now for your next corporate entertainment day; to come and meet the team, watch us display, let us take you flying, and enjoy a hangar ball at the end of a fun-packed day.

Now taking bookings for the AOPA Aerobatics Course to be completed in the Super Yak 52. The ideal machine to learn in if you want to go on to fly high performance aircraft or warbirds. It’s 400hp radial engine requires careful management and its massive 3 bladed prop will have your feet working hard. All our instructors are display pilots and our head of training is one of only a few Display Authorisation Examiners in the country. Contact mail@yakovlevs.com

The first Yak 50 is nearly complete. It’s a real team effort to get the aircraft assembled. Getting the wings on requires some heavy manual lifting combined with tiny adjustments to line up the holes for the massive spar bolts. ... See MoreSee Less

It’s a massively busy time down at Team Yakovlevs HQ. Not only are we rebuilding our returned aircraft, we also have our CAA maintenance provider and partner Horizon Aircraft Services carrying out servicing and annuals.

Here we are mounting our new M14PF engine onto our super-lightweight No 3 Yak 52 #86. Looking forward to running it in ready for Aero India in February 2019.
