What is the current aircraft in production at Yakolev? I'm sure that the Yak-40 is no longer in production, but how about the '42? Where are the operations of Yakolev located? Thanks in advance.

Yak-42D is still in production at Saratov at the rate of one or two airplanes a year. In the early 90s more advance versions were developed Yak-142 and Yak-242.

Yak-142 is a partly Westernised version of the basic Yak-42D, with AlliedSignal avionics, but retaining the Progress D-36 turbofans.
I think Yakovlev have build two or three Yak-142 prototypes.

Yak-242 is intended to have AlliedSignal avionics and to be powered by two underwing 118kN Perm PS-90A12 turbofans. CFM56 and V2500- powered versions have also been studied.
Yak-242 exists only on a drawing board.

You must remember that Yakovlev (and all other Russian/Ukrainian design bureaus) only design the aircraft, they don't actually produce them (except prototypes).

Now this is something I didn't know! The Saratov factory, for instance - who owns this factory? I believe I've heard that Tupolev aircraft are built there. Does then Russian or Ukrainian governments own these installations? It really sounds complex to me and would really contribute to production problems in the long run. How can the Russians or Ukrainians hope to find a real market niche for their airplanes? I have followed the development of the Russian, and now Ukrainian, airliners for a long time. I really feel sometimes that they are in their twilight years. Thanks for the information.
