"Some procedures are being implemented. We think that Azerbaijan will be one of the users of Yak-130 soon," the representative of the company noted. But Irkut did not release the exact number of aircrafts.

The combat trainer aircraft Yak-130 is designed for training pilots of combat aircraft "4 +++" and "5"th generations. Its armament consists of guided and unguided missiles. Currently, these aircrafts are being used by armies of Russia, Belarus and Algeria.

The Yakovlev Yak-130 is a russian made subsonic two-seat new-generation aircraft intended for basic and advanced flight training of air school trainee pilots to fly fourth- and fifth-generation combat aircraft, for maintaining flying skills of pilot personnel of regular air units, and flying combat missions in local armed conflicts.
