Operators

 Russia
  • Dexter Air Taxi (3 aircraft).
  • 3 more aircraft operated by Buguruslansk Civil Aviation School.[2]
  • 1 aircraft RA15106, was demonstrated in 2004 in South Africa by ROSAVIA and flown at multiple airshows in South Africa. These demonstrations were flown by Yurij Polyakov and South African born Andrew Cross. The project generated a lot of interest but did not sell because the asking price was too high. When the project ended the aircraft was ferried back to Russia by Yurij Polyakov[citation needed].
