    The Russian Aerospace Forces will receive the first Yak-152 primary trainer aircraft for trials by the end of the spring and plan to sign the contract with the manufacturer afterward, the forces' deputy commander said Wednesday.

    Langkawi (Sputnik) — According to the corporation, Yak-152 can be used for practicing navigation basics, various piloting techniques, from basic to aerobatic pilotage, emergency piloting and many other aspects of pilots' training.

    "Yak-152 should be sent to [State Flight Tests Center] for state trials by the beginning of the summer this year," Lt. Gen. Andrey Yudin said.

    Yudin said that the Russian Defense Ministry would sign a contract with the manufacturer after the trials, but he would not specify how many it was planning to buy.

    The Irkut corporation began manufacturing these aircraft in 2006.
