The Sukhoi Su-26 is a Russian aerobatic aircraft. It can be flown by pilots with little experience and will take off at speeds as low as 41 miles per hour. The Sukhoi’s unusual design was made to provide the pilot with greater visibility while performing stunts in the air, but also requires more skill than most other planes. This duality makes it an interesting plane for both experienced pilots and beginners alike.
The Sukhoi Su-26 is one of many planes that have been used in Russia’s Red Bull Air Race World Championship since 2003. The International Aerobatics Club has awarded the plane their highest rating of “gold” for its ability to fly at extreme angles, making it perfect for competition purposes.
