Crash investigations of Yak-52 serial number 9010607 Ekaterinburg's Aviation Sports Club Voluntary Association for Assistance to Army, Air Force and Navy of Russian Federation are found the destruction of the elevator sector 525100-80.

The research found that the cause of the sector 525100-80 destruction is combination of high level dynamic loading of the sector under actual operating conditions and manufacturing defects:

  • manufacturing the sectors of the plate instead of forging (forged);
  • manufacturing the sectors from the AK-4 instead of the AK-6;
  • underestimating of fillet radius (transition to thickening of the sector) during the production process (deviations from the drawing requirements);
  • large surface roughness in the fillet area;
  • negative (parallel to the fillet) location of the structure of sector's material.
