Vatulino is Russian airfield

Postby Denis.gan » Tue May 31, 2016 2:43 pm

I want to tell you about Russian airfield near Moscow called Vatulino. I took the lessons by the Yak-18T there. May be, it will be interesting for someone.)) This airfield have a couple very individual features.

1. Non standard level of traffic pattern - 700 ft. It because airfield have placed under the MOA.

2. Runway border on the settlement from the one side and all aircrafts heavier than SLA have to avoid to pass through the village during their final approach or right after they took off in against direction.

I attached a couple video with my touch and go in both directions of the runway. Enjoy))

Great videos - and nice work on the go-arounds! The Yak 18T looks like an interesting airplane to fly. One of the few national trainers to have retractable gear it appears... Thanks for posting.

Cheers!

Really nice videos and really nice landings.

I like the way that by about one wingspan above the ground the power comes smoothly back to idle - I try for that on most of my landings.

Nothing drastically wrong with both hands on the yoke - but I think I'd prefer the pilot's right hand stay "covering" the throttle throughout. That said, pretty sure there are planes and situations where I've used both hands on the yoke as well.

Yep, throttle hold is the best solution. I agree. My both hands on the yoke - it lack of a habit to fly with yoke after shift control and necessity to use the both hands: thrust, prop and flap (brake spoiler) on the right, landing gear switch and trim handle on the left.)

Not bad.

How much is an hour, and do you have to be a member of a club? Does anyone based at Vatulino fly cross-country?

Flight on Yak-18T costs approx 200$ per hour with instructor on board. No, i can't to be a member of any club because i haven't the Russian pilot license.
Vatulino is base for parachutists and for the recreational flights. Cross-country is not widespread flights in Russia.
