Sat Sr-10 – Prototype Jet Trainer
The KB SAT SR-10 is a prototype Russian single-engine jet trainer aircraft, fitted with forward-swept wings. It first flew in 2015, and is being offered to the Russian Air Force and for export.
The Russian design bureau KB SAT (Sovremyenne Aviatsyonne Tekhnologii – Modern Aircraft Technologies) began work on a single-engine jet trainer and sport aircraft, the SR-10, in 2007, displaying a mockup at the MAKS airshow at Zhukovsky in August 2009. The SR-10 is a mid-wing monoplane of all-composite construction, with a wing swept forward at an angle of 10 degrees. The crew of two sit in a tandem cockpit. It is powered by a single turbofan, with a Ivchenko AI-25V fitted in the prototype, but more modern Russian engines, such as the NPO Saturn AL-55 are proposed for production aircraft.
The SR-10 was offered to meet a 2014 requirement for a basic trainer for the Russian Air force, but was rejected in favour of the Yakovlev Yak-152, a proposed turboprop trainer. Despite this setback, KB SAT continued to develop the SR-10, proposing it as an intermediate trainer between the Yak-152 and the Yakovlev Yak-130 advanced trainer and for export. The first prototype SR-10 made its maiden flight on 25 December 2015.
