9 Flying to visit YAK UK at Lt Gransden airfield (EGMJ) instructions.
We are EASA 145 certified for airframe, engine and propeller overhauls. We are the main Yak importer and service specialist in the West, setting the standard others have been unable to emulate. (UK CAA company approval document)
Important statement from Termikas. Yak UK Ltd work in partnership with Termikas, who are based in Lithuania Termikas are EASA 145, LY-CAA & HA CAA approved for overhauling the YAK 12, 18T, 50, 52 & 55 series of aircraft, as well as the Wilga and many gliders (both glass and metal) Our offices and records are open to audit by any Civil Aviation Authority within EASA. We will also make records available to our customers upon request.
No other company supplying and maintaining YAK aircraft at this time is willing or able to do this as they are not following manufacturers overhaul instructions.
We are the only company in Europe with the OEM overhaul documentation. Non approved overhauls are being carried out at various sites in Lithuania in some cases with NO control whatsoever from the relevant Civil Aviation Authorities whose register is being used. These aircraft are filtering into the West, be warned. Ask for documentation of the overhaul. If it is not supplied, draw your own conclusions.
A “paint and paper overhaul” may look an attractive price at time of purchase but the costs for continued airworthiness and certification will be extremely high. Its very likely teh MPD’s wont be installed either.
We also supply our competitors with aircraft and parts.
Yak UK was the first company to import and operate the YAK 52 to the West. We have supplied more aircraft than our second and third competitors combined world-wide. Our reputation is in our unsurpassed quality of aircraft and after sales maintenance support. We are also able to supply the upgraded M14P to 400 hp engine at reasonable prices or as a licensed Lithuanian built engine. Apart from AEROSTAR (The YAK 52 manufacture.) we are the only company with fully licensed documentation and approvals to overhaul the YAK 52, to original factory specifications, thereby meeting the stringent UK Civil Aviation Authority requirements for certification.
