NEW FUEL TANK OPTIONS
For the Yak-18T and Yak-18A, the enhancement boosts the wing fuel capacity by 66%, yielding well over 6hrs duration in the economical Cruise II 200-220km/h configuration. As you can see in the diagram, we insert two new 65 litre fuel tanks into the wings thus boosting the fuel capacity from 193 litres to 323 litres. The original fuel caps are fixed in place and new caps are fitted further out along the wings. The fuel system is fully connected and fed into the original tanks. The fuel gauges are unaltered and will register full until the new outer tanks become empty.
For the Vertical T-1, due to enhanced power being available, we have increased the fuel capacity by an additional 100-160 litres by inserting a further two tanks out towards the wing tips.
YAK 50 & YAK 52 FUEL TANKS
We are also pleased to offer replacement and extended wing tanks for the Yak-50 & Yak-52. This enhancement boosts the fuel capacity by 120%. We insert two new 60 litre tanks into the wings and in so doing, boost the fuel capacity from 90/100 liters to 210/220 litres. This is achieved without changing the wing construction or adding bulbous wing tip tanks. This option does not alter the aerodynamic characteristics of the aircraft but when the tanks are full, will clearly have an effect on general performance due to the weight of fuel.
Installation kits with English instructions are available.
