The Su-29 is the two seat member of the Sukhoi family of aerobatic aircraft. The Su-29 was developed primarily as a trainer for new aerobatic aircraft pilots. The trainer has just 35 percent new parts. All others are shared with its predecessor. The primary difference is a lengthened center fuselage and canopy to accommodate the student pilot, plus an increased wing length, both by about 16 inches. It first took to the sky on August 9, 1991.

Twelve Sukhoi Su-29 aircraft were delivered to the United States in 1992. Other countries using the aircraft include Great Britain, and South Africa.

Cruz del Sur, the National Air Force Team of Argentina, fly the Sukhoi 29.

Not only are Sukhoi Su-29 aircraft used to train prospective Sukhoi aerobatic pilots, but also as civil and military aviation trainers.

To date some 50 Sukhoi Su-29 training aircraft have been produced.
