Oxygen System KS - 130

Purpose:

The KS-130 oxygen system is designed to provide one or two pilots of the front-line aircraft with oxygen during flights at the altitudes up to 12 km. The oxygen source is the BKDU-130 onboard oxygen-generating system, which produces oxygen from compressed air tapped from the aircraft gas turbine compressor.

Major advantages of the bottle-free oxygen system:

  • There are no onboard oxygen bottles in the system and, correspondingly, there is no need in pre-flight charging of the system with oxygen;
  • The mission duration is not limited with the onboard oxygen reserve;
  • The system features less line maintenance man-hours than the system with the bottle oxygen source.

The KS-129 oxygen system is used onboard the Yak-130 aircraft.
