“In South Africa and Kenya, our planes patrolling the reserves, — says Yuri Yakovlev. — Most of our customers are private individuals who make pretty good money to get a “toy”. A lot of our planes — I think about a quarter in flight schools, learn to fly them. Also, our aircraft are used for aerial photography, processing of fields.
