Another YAK 52 aircraft finds a new owner
Just taken YAK 52 G-IMIC apart for shipping to New Zealand where the new owner, Rob Mackley, will assemble and enjoy in the Auckland area, North Island.
We’ve got a couple of other 52s for sale: a 1991 YAK-52 with life extension carried out, original colour paint scheme with CAA exemption not to carry registration marks, 59/50 & 107 complied with along with all other directives. Just over 600 hours TTSN… And a 1998 YAK 52 with 507 hours TTSN long range fuel, fixed wing step… give me a call if these sound like what you’re looking for.
These are lovely ‘war bird’ aircraft to own and fly, rugged and great fun… easy to fly and land.
