Did you know? Aviation Week has won top honors multiple times in the Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Awards, the business-to-business media equivalent of the Pulitzer Prizes.
Russia's Irkut Corp. has begun deliveries of Yakovlev Yak-130 combat trainers to the Algerian air force. The first three aircraft arrived on An-124s on Nov. 29. Irkut has already assembled all 16 trainers ordered by Algeria in 2006 and plans to complete the deliveries by the end of 2016. The Algerians will use Yak-130s to train pilots for Sukhoi Su-30MKA fighters also supplied by Irkut. The trainer has a glass cockpit and a reprogrammed fly-by-wire system that can replicate the characteristics of Russian Generation 4-plus fighters.
