    I would love to try that Yak. Underwing monoplanes with big rotary engines are very cool to ride/fly especially with the canopy open.

    19 years ago I did parachute training in Turkey (it was free !!) and we also jumped from AN-2 planes which are taylor-cut for this kind of stuff. Turkey being a NATO country I do not know how they went around to go and buy the Soviet planes for the Turkish Aviation Association but they did it !! AN-2 is a very robust and durable plane.
