Pakistan is interested in purchasing Yak-130 operational trainers. Representatives of Pakistani air forces already held a meeting with management of Rosoboronexport and Irkut Corporation in the network of their recent visit to Moscow.
“Pakistan is interested in purchasing jets of the type, because it doesn’t have such aircraft at the moment”. The source noted that Pakistani experts have highly appreciated Yak-130 and noted that “its unique capabilities and performance close to F-16 and JF-17 fighters operated by the national air forces, will make transition from the operational trainer to a real combat aircraft easier for pilots”.
