Sukhoi Su-29


With the political changes that have occurred, the former Soviets have found an increasing desire to attract, sales abroad. The former Soviet pilots soon came to the conclusion that there was a requirement for a two seat aircraft with the same performance as the single seat Su-26, principally for training purposes, and Sukhoi developed the SU29.


Fuel endurance is limited to about 30 minutes of aerobatic flying with a reserve, but filling up the wing tanks will give you four hours in the air at 157 knots ( 65 per cent ) plus reserve. It is stressed to plus and minus 23 g at the factory although the brochure states plus 9 and minus 7 with two persons on board and plus 11 and minus 9 solo. The engine life is 2250 hours at normal operation but restricted to 500 hours of "UNLIMITED" aerobatics. The propeller is a three bladed MT composite prop from Germany.

Su-29M is equipped with ejection seats, the lightest aircraft in the world with such a facility.
