Traditional for Yakovlev aircraft easy is enhanced by auxiliary power unit and automated on-board diagnostics/monitoring system. And of course, Yak-130 may be used from unpaved airfields.

Up to 28% of the airframe is made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics.

The engines are modification of the Progress (Zaporozhie, Ukraina) DV-2, modified by Klimov Engine Design Bureau.

Experience of Italian counterpart in production, sale and worldwide support of trainer aircraft should help to gain turf on international aircraft market.
