Cessna 172

All aviators know the Cessna 172. We have serviced many of them in our 30 years of operation. Here are some of the more interesting facts.

The top five most produced aircraft:
Cessna 172 - 44.000
Ilyushin IL2 - 36.183
Meserschmit BF109 - 34.852
Piper PA28 - 32.778

The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is an American four-seat, single-engine, high wing, fixed-wing aircraft made by the Cessna Aircraft Company. First flown in 1955, more 172s have been built than any other aircraft. It was developed from the 1948 Cessna 170 but with tricycle landing gear rather than conventional landing gear. The Skyhawk name was originally used for a trim package, but was later applied to all standard-production 172 aircraft, while some upgraded versions were marketed as the Cutlass.
Measured by its longevity and popularity, the Cessna 172 is the most successful aircraft in history. Cessna delivered the first production model in 1956, and as of 2015, the company and its partners had built more than 44,000 units. The aircraft remains in production today.
On May 28, 1987, a rented Cessna 172P, registered D-ECJB, was used by German teenage pilot Mathias Rust in an unauthorized flight from Helsinki-Malmi Airport through Soviet airspace to land near the Red Square in Moscow, all without being intercepted by Soviet air defense.

Van's Aircraft RV series

Van's Aircraft, Inc. is an American kit aircraft manufacturer, founded by Richard "Van" VanGrunsven in 1973.
Van's RV series of aircraft, from the single-seat RV-3 to the latest RV-14, are all-aluminum, low-wing monoplanes of monocoque construction. The RV series of airplanes has been extremely successful. In December 2017 the company reported that its 10,000th aircraft had flown, an RV-7 built in Martinsburg, West Virginia. Completion rates currently average about 1.5 per day, making the series the most numerous of all homebuilt aircraft. They feature responsive controls plus good speed and fuel economy.
Now The Van's Aircraft factory is located at Aurora State Airport, Oregon.

UAB Termikas has been assembling RV aircraft for a number of years. They can be ordered and received as a set of parts from which you can build your own aircraft. Of course, skills, tools and a great deal of refinement are required. Many customers choose to be partially involved in the production process, and the most important operations are entrusted to our professionals.
We help to form the order, choose the right set, organize the purchase, customs procedures and delivery.

YAK aircraft & RED A03 V-12 Diesel

On March 9, 2009 "Termikas" has signed an agreement with the German company "RED aircraft GmbH" ( Raikhlin engines development ) to modify the Yak-52 aircraft by replacing the standard engine M-14P ( 360HP ) with a new RED A03 V-12 Diesel ( 500 hp ) engine and to additionally install hydraulic and electrical systems.
We performed fuselage and aircraft systems modifications. Company "RED" installed its diesel engine and assembled engine control and monitoring equipment.
With the participation of specialists from both companies, the aircraft was finally assembled and tested in Adenau, Germany. Test pilot - Antanas Marčiukaitis.
In 2010, the aircraft was presented at the largest European aviation exhibition in Friedrichshafen.

Today we present the 4-seater Yak-18T aircraft. "Termikas" and the project engineer Jonas Janušauskas modified and prepared the aircraft for the installation of the RED A03 V-12 Diesel (500 hp) engine. The engine was installed at the company's "RED" base in Adenau, Germany. Test flights were conducted there. At the end of July, the aircraft was registered in the Lithuanian register LY-BID and flew to our airfield. Test pilot – Žilvinas Lidžius.

"Termikas" will now do some work on modifications, testing and aircraft appearance.

We are looking forward to the visit of "RED" representatives soon.
Together with colleagues from "RED", we will tell you more about this project later on.


“Partnerių tarptautinėm MTEPI iniciatyvoms paieška EĮT renginiuose, siekiant surasti inovatyvius išmaniojo transporto ir jos sistemų sprendimus”

Projekto tikslas.
Plėtoti tarptautinę partnerystę ir tinklaveiką, per EĮT ieškant galimybių dalyvauti tarptautinėse ES MTEPI iniciatyvose.

Dalyvaujant tarptautinių MTEPI veiklos iniciatyvų renginiuose bus tikimasi surasti partnerių dalyvauti konkrečioje – vienoje ar keliose tarptautinėse ES MTEPI programose (Cosme; SME Intrument; Horizon2020, Eureka; Eurostars; ir pan.). Tikimasi, kad aktyvaus dalyvavimo renginiuose dėka pavyks su tarptautiniais partneriais pasirašyti nemažiau kaip vieną susitarimą, įpareigojantį pareiškėją ir tarptautinį partner kartu bendradarbiaujant teikti paraiškas tarptautinėms MTEPI srities iniciatyvoms (programoms) įgyvendinti.
