Exclusive planes in "Termikas". Yak-18A / 2022 09 09 /

A member of the second generation of Russian aircraft designers, and best known for fighter designs, Alexander Sergeyevich Yakovlev always retained a light aircraft design section. In May 1945, Yakovlev initiated design of the Yak-18 two-seat primary trainer. He designed it to replace the earlier Yakovlev UT-2 and Yak-5 in service with the Soviet Air Forces and DOSAAF ( Voluntary Society for Collaboration with the Army, Air Force and Navy, which sponsored aero clubs throughout the USSR ). In 1944, an advanced version of the UT-2 had been built and featured an enclosed canopy and fixed landing gear which bears a striking resemblance to the new Yak-18. The new aircraft flew a year later, powered by a 119 kW (160 hp) Shvetsov M-11 five-cylinder radial engine and featuring pneumatically operated retractable main landing gear and a fixed tailwheel. It entered service as a trainer later that year and was built by Yakovlev up until 1956. Examples were exported to China in kit form beginning in 1950. The Chinese then went on to redesign the aircraft with the designation CJ-5.
The Yak 18’s greatest claim to fame is its use as a night bomber by the North Korean Air Force during the Korean War. The aircraft were modified with bomb racks on the wing center section and flew over UN troop locations at night to drop bombs and harass UN forces. The single most successful attack of the North Korean aviation during the war was destroying of a fuel dump with nearly 5.5 million gallons of fuel in Inchon area in June 1953 by 4 or 5 Yak-18s. The five-cylinder engine reminded many of the US troops of the sound made by early gasoline powered washing machines earning them the name: “Washing Machine Charlie”. The name “Bed Check Charlie” was also used for these night intruders. The Yak-18’s along with Polikarpov Po-2‘s became quite a nuisance until US night fighters began shooting them down.
Other claims to fame for the Yak-18 are an international speed record for class in 1951 as well as being the aircraft used for initial flight training by Yuri Gagarin (1st human in space) and Ken Rowe ( No Kum-Sok: defected with a Mig-15 during the Korean War ). Later, as the need for conventional landing gear trainers abated Yakovlev re-designed the Yak-18 with retractable tricycle landng gear and an Ivchenko AI-14RF radial, 224 kW (300 hp) and was designated the Yak-18A. The design proved exceptionally easy to build and maintain.

Mustang P-51 & ScaleWings 70% replica / 2022 06 24 /

P-51 Mustang is an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II and the Korean War, among other conflicts. The Mustang was designed in April 1940 by a team headed by James Kindelberger of North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a requirement of the British Purchasing Commission.

The prototype NA-73X airframe was rolled out on 9 September 1940, 102 days after the contract was signed, and first flew on 26 October. The cost of production in 1945 was 50 000 dollars.
A total of 15,875 aircraft were produced.
The majority of P-51's remained in the Air Force for a long time, although from 1946 they were gradually replaced by jet fighters. The obsolete P-51 could be bought very cheaply ($1000), so it was also used extensively for personal use. The P-51C won many victories in various air races. It is still used in many places for recreational purposes, but its price has risen to two million dollars.

Bellanca CH-300 Pacemaker / 2021 12 04 /

The Bellanca CH-300 Pacemaker was a six-seat utility aircraft, built primarily in the US in the 1920s and 1930s. Manufacturer – Bellanca. It was a development of the Bellanca CH-200, fitted with a more powerful engine and, like the CH-200, soon became renowned for its long-distance endurance. Number build – 35.
On July 15, 1933 6:24 AM two Lithuanian pilots Steponas Darius and Stasys Girėnas flying a heavily modified CH-300 named “Lituanica” lifted off from Floyd Bennet Field to attempt a non stop transatlantic flight. They successfully crossed the Atlantic, however crashed in the forest near Pszczelnik, Poland. Flying replica of the plane is on display in Lithuanian Museum of Aviation, the wreckage of the original is kept in Vytautas Magnus War Museum, Kaunas, Lithuania.

YAK aircraft & RED A03 V-12 Diesel

On March 9, 2009 "Termikas" has signed an agreement with the German company "RED aircraft GmbH" ( Raikhlin engines development ) to modify the Yak-52 aircraft by replacing the standard engine M-14P ( 360HP ) with a new RED A03 V-12 Diesel ( 500 hp ) engine and to additionally install hydraulic and electrical systems.
We performed fuselage and aircraft systems modifications. Company "RED" installed its diesel engine and assembled engine control and monitoring equipment.
With the participation of specialists from both companies, the aircraft was finally assembled and tested in Adenau, Germany. Test pilot - Antanas Marčiukaitis.
In 2010, the aircraft was presented at the largest European aviation exhibition in Friedrichshafen.

Today we present the 4-seater Yak-18T aircraft. "Termikas" and the project engineer Jonas Janušauskas modified and prepared the aircraft for the installation of the RED A03 V-12 Diesel (500 hp) engine. The engine was installed at the company's "RED" base in Adenau, Germany. Test flights were conducted there. At the end of July, the aircraft was registered in the Lithuanian register LY-BID and flew to our airfield. Test pilot – Žilvinas Lidžius.

"Termikas" will now do some work on modifications, testing and aircraft appearance.

We are looking forward to the visit of "RED" representatives soon.
Together with colleagues from "RED", we will tell you more about this project later on.
