Description: The Yak-40 is a short-range aircraft intended to transport up to 30 passengers and/or cargo on routes of up to 1,300 km powered by three AI-25 turbojets. The Yak-40 performed its maiden flight on October 21, 1966. More than 1,000 airplanes were produced in the former Soviet Union until production series ceased in 1981. The Yakovlev design bureau has been upgrading the Yak-40 aircraft to increase its maximum takeoff weight, service life and extend its range to over 2,500 kilometers. Modern avionics have been provided to the upgraded Yak-40 as well.

The Yakovlev design bureau is developing the Yak-48 aircraft family that could replace the existing Yak-40 airplanes in the next decade.
