 A.S.Yakovlev near hydroplane AIR-2

Light aircraft 1927 - 1936

Do these small and sympathetic baby planes, biplanes, and monoplanes reflect the aviation mood and romance in the country at that time. People were studying flying and flight nature on these aircraft. Projects sprang up one after another, more frequently on enthusiasm than at scientific approach. This was glorious period of sky development.

Just at that time A.S.Yakovlev with small team of engineers and workers fabricated a number of light aircraft that didn't yet bear "Yak" emblem and were designated as AIR-1, AIR-2, ... , AIR-19. We believe that the following table with most known Yak aircraft of that time, their arrangemens and photos at our site, will be interesting for people that take a fancy to aviation.
