The Aerostars perform a tight formation at 250 mph in 400-hp Yak 52TW Soviet trainers. The Aerostars are a precision aerobatic demo team whose aerial ballet captivates air show audiences.
The team performs in the Yak 52TW, a former Soviet-designed, Romanian-built, WWII-type aerobatic trainer. The deep roar of their 400 horsepower, supercharged, nine cylinder radial engines singing in harmony is a true crowd pleaser. The Aerostars' performance is the embodiment of teamwork, professionalism, and commitment to excellence.
