T-1 by Vertical is a modified Yak-18T with a Walter M601 turboprop engine with reverse link system.  It has a V508-B 3-blade aluminium propeller, 6-seats in a flexible configuration.  Sound dampened executive leather interior compliments the cockpit and overall aircraft comfort.  

An optional retractable amphibious undercarriage is also available.  It is fully-detachable by just one person.

The T-1 is intended for passenger transport, small commercial loads, parachute dropping, mail delivery, pilot instruction, medical and ambulance services, patrolling (woods, pipeline, power transmissions) or even fish stock exploration. It can be used as a dispatch plane and official transport for industry and agriculture. 


The T-1 proposition is suitable for the US Experimental register or equivalent and is ideal for those needing robustness, flexibility as well as performance in a single package.   

This wealth of practicality is supported by sanitary, passenger and multi-purpose options that can be selected by the client.  The T-1 is capable of remarkable multi-surface STOL performance.

The Czech. built Walter M-601 turboprop engine has a reverse link system that further aids STOL performance by reversing the propeller pitch during the landing run. See more engine details.


The Walter M601 series engines have been designed for commuter, agricultural, and trainer aircraft.  The T-1 currently has the M601-B engine variant mounted.  We recommend M601-D or E variants to propsective clients, however, this is not essential.

The Walter M601 engine is a free power turbine turboprop engine featuring two independent parts: the gas generator and power section.  Air enters the engine in the rear part, flows forward through the compressor, combustion chamber, and turbines and exits through exhaust nozzles near the front of the engine.

The 657shp provides plenty of take-off and cruise power for the relatively light Yak airframe.
