The first Yak-30 prototype flew in 1960. On September 22, 1961, Yak-30 set a speed record of 773.308km/h on 15/25km circuit. On September 25, 1961, Yak-30 piloted by Smirnov set an altitude record of 16128m.

The USSR decided to buy the Czech L-29.

Some specially equipped Yak-30 were used to guide unmanned high altitude drones Yak-25RV-II during life firing exercises of interceptor regiments.
