All you geniuses out there - can you help with this?

I fly a Yak 50 (Russian late 70's competition aircraft - derived from the two seat trainer / baby warbird Yak 52, which I also fly).

We have a formation aerobatic team in the UK, called the AeroStars, 7 aircraft, fly displays all over Europe. Only civilian team in the world that can fly a seven ship close formation loop. We came second in the world formation Aerobatic championships.

My question is, can somebody build a model of the a/c that would fly in CFSII / MS FS.

What would you need to know?

If anybody who is in or visits the UK can do it, I can offer a full aerobatic workout in a Yak 52 as a thank you.

There's a nice aerobatic Yak 55 for FS2000 at www.flightsim.com. You have to register to download, but it's free.

Thanks.

The Yak 55 has different handling - thick wing vs. thin. Same engine. Better at high g turning, poorer at acceleration which is a big consideration for formation aeros.

It's also better at the auto rotation stuff which is the heart of modern solo aeros.

The solo guy in our team (UK aerobatic champion last three years) has been flying one for fun with us during our winter practices.

Yeah, you can come for a ride if you can make it to London.

Incidentally there are a few Yak pilots in Italy who come up for the formation flying schools we run. Also we might be coming to Italy to do some shows this year.

Thanks

Ivchenko
