Hi all, I have an airplane yoke that belonged to my grandfather who was a test pilot. It is from a Soviet-era Il-76 airplane. These are cargo planes serving both military and civilian purposes. The yoke contains no batteries or electronic components, as far as I am aware. I checked, and there don't seem to be any laws and rules against importing such items, but I want to be sure before I bring it in since it has a large sentimental value to me. I would greatly appreciate if anyone has advice on how I can receive any official information on this. Thanks!

Hi Nahrihra,
You can start looking up trade tariff to search the customs charges and any import controls.
Trade Tariff: look up commodity codes, duty and VAT rates
You can also hire a customs agent to do the clearance.
