How old is the YAK 3?
The Yak 3 is actually a 1943 design resulting in a requirement from the chief designer Alexander Yakovlev that as much weight and drag be removed from a modified earlier Yak 1 design as possible. This is why the aircraft is so small compared to it’s WW II contemporaries such as the Spitfire, Mustang and Me 109 and is why the airframe is so aerodynamically clean.
The aircraft you will fly in was actually built by the Yakovlev Design Bureau in 1993! This came about after they found the original jigs and tooling for the Yak 3 and decided to restart production. They even continued the serial numbers on as if they had only halted production for a mere 60 years. The newly built aircraft are powered by the smooth and reliable Allison V1710 V-12 engine and utilise a cut down DC 3 propeller. Your aircraft has less than 300 hours on the clock since it came out of the box brand new.
