More Power Better Efficiency For The YAK 18T Retrofitted with the 500HP RED A03Red aircraft GmbH has successfully fitted its revolutionary RED A03 engine to a #YAK18T. The modified aircraft embarked on its maiden flight on Sunday, June 13. By retrofitting a brand new engine to a pre-existing airframe, RED seeks to demonstrate the key benefits provided by the #engine to other manufacturers and operators.
RED aircraft has successfully test flown a YAK-18T fitted with its highly efficient #REDA03 engine. The flight represents a significant milestone for the company as it has exceeded expectations concerning performance and efficiency.
In an unorthodox and proactive move, it was Raikhlin Aircraft Developments who initiated the conversion. In doing so, they have practically demonstrated several key benefits provided by the engine.
The Yak-18T was developed in the 1960s as a basic trainer, used to train Aeroflot pilots. It also saw sporadic use in the Soviet military as communication and reconnaissance aircraft. In more modern times, it was adopted as a reliable and affordable touring aircraft. With up to five seats, it provides plenty of room. The airframe is heavier than other aircraft of equal size, so it provided RED Aircraft with the ideal opportunity to demonstrate how effectively a high-powered engine can be utilized and retrofitted to something that would benefit most effectively.

The CELERA 500L Bullet Plane Powered by The RED A03 Engine - Game Changing Technologies CombinedRED Aircraft GmbH clean sheet designed #aviation piston engine is behind the revoluntary so called 'Bullet' Plane #CELERA500L created by Otto Aviation. The #REDA03 Engine is a lightweight, all-aluminum, 12-cylinder, high-compression-ignition engine, with two six-cylinder banks capable of independent operation. The RED A03 is certified to operate on jet fuel. The Celera 500L is the most fuel-efficient, commercially viable aircraft in existence. Designed for transcontinental range with operating costs equal to or better than commercial airline ticket pricing on a per passenger basis. This criteria requires extremely low drag across the entire aircraft with a highly fuel-efficient propulsion system. To achieve this, extensive use of laminar shapes was used for the wings, fuselage, and tail sections.

First Test Flight - REDA03 - Diesel Powered Piston Engine - Flying Yak-152 Trainer AircraftThe avionics system on the Yak-152 is computerised and displayed in the ‘glass cockpit’ concept. This is beneficial for several reasons including; multi-functionality of displays, increased redundancy protection, and efficient in-flight data recording. The onboard glass cockpit has several useful benefits in the training environment. Furthermore, certain failures can be synthetically replicated by using a control panel located in the rear instructor seating position. Overall the glass cockpit concept gives better situational awareness leading to an increase in in-flight safety.
