The path to becoming a military fighter pilot still runs through primary, prop-driven training platforms and even beyond this there is much time spent in Advanced Jet Trainers (AJTs). The Yakovlev Design Bureau (Irkut Corporation) is developing the Yak-152 for the former, relying on proven qualities such as a tandem-seat arrangement and traditional fuselage/wing configuration. The aircraft sports a low-wing monoplane and retractable, wheeled tricycle undercarriage and fits its sole engine in the nose in the usual way, the powerplant driving a three-bladed propeller. The Yak-152 is intended as a stepping-stone design to more AJT forms like the Yakovlev Yak-130 (detailed elsewhere on this site).

The aircraft is built around a reliable, robust framework promising to keep procurement, maintenance and repair costs to a minimum. Dimensions of the product include a length of 7.8 meters, a height of 3.11 meters, and a wingspan of 8.8 meters. Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) is 1,500 kilograms. Performance specs include a maximum speed of 500 kilometers per hour, a service ceiling of 4,000 meters and an operational range out to 1,000 kilometers. Short-field qualities are built-in, giving the aircraft the capability to operate from smaller, unprepared runaways and the undercarriage is reinforced to support such rough function. The airframes are being constructed to allow for a service life of 10,000 hours or thirty years.

In the cockpit, the aircraft carries all-modern avionics to prepare students on the basics of modern flying and can push training into the aerobatic and advanced realms. The student resides in the front cockpit with the instructor in the rear cockpit (both positions unpressurized) and a dual control scheme is used allowing either pilot to take control of the aircraft. Multi-Function Displays (MFDs) provide for very modern work stations and both crewmembers are afforded ejection seats (SKS-94M series) should trouble arise.

Originally-announced power was through an M-14X diesel-fueled turboprop engine outputting 360 horsepower. Now it is confirmed that the aircraft fits a RED Aircraft A03 V-12 series diesel-fueled engine of 500 horsepower.

To date (2016), the Russian Ministry of Defense has committed to the purchase of 150 Yak-152 primary trainers. The prototype was rolled out during mid-June 2016.
