    Judging by the design inside (with wide chairs), these 6 hours can be comfortably spent.

      Only the owner companies have not been replaced by standard narrow ones. And then it will begin - more passengers - more profit. Nobody thinks about comfort ...

        . Nobody thinks about comfort ...

        Now it's not about comfort. The most important thing is that we realized that without our own aircraft manufacturing we will go nowhere! And the revival of AviaProm is a good indicator that Russia understood who is who, and what needs to be done only by ourselves, and only by ourselves!

                  But the phrase still bothers me ... in the MS-21 program, along with Irkut, ... and leading foreign companies. and I understand that the years of devastation make themselves felt, but - Russia must build its planes, from a pencil of draftsmen to the last screw.
                  Superjet also has partners, God forgive me, so his promotion to the market is controlled by the US Treasury. I want to believe that the experience is taken into account in the MS project

                    Let's go without extremes. Consumer goods factory - at hand. It is necessary to make strategically important nodes and the entire military commissariat. There with Siemens turbines sank for the Crimea, turbines of such power are not produced here - demand is too low. But to establish the production of such turbines is unprofitable - it will not pay off, but there are technologies and competencies.

              in the USSR he was just a means of transportation. I explain it in a simple, but nowadays completely incomprehensible to modern language - there used to be communication lines with those places where it was simply necessary, and now only with those where it was profitable.

          And if you want to fly comfortably and for normal money, choose Air Astana, you will be surprised at the quality of service, by the way you will have a glass of wine and beer on board and children will generally have a full lafa.

                        I did something, but I want to do more.
                        And here is an example of how to quickly create complex products in a complex, and not in parts.
                        The construction of the first experimental IL-86 aircraft, carried out on the basis of wide cooperation of many enterprises of the country that manufactured individual parts of the aircraft, its components and systems, was completed and on December 22, 1976, the crew headed by the honored test pilot of the USSR, Hero of the Soviet Union E.I. Kuznetsov, performed the first flight on IL-86.
                        In June of the following year, the IL-86 prototype aircraft flew to Paris and was shown at the 32nd International Aviation and Space Salon at Le Bourget Airport, where it attracted great attention and was highly appreciated by foreign aviation specialists.
                        Factory tests of the IL-86 aircraft were successfully completed on September 22, 1978, three months ahead of schedule. In the process of their conduct, the aircraft’s flight-technical characteristics were determined and the flight speed equivalent to the number M = 0,93 was achieved, the stability and controllability characteristics of the aircraft, which were also tested at large angles of attack, were evaluated at 11 degrees. exceeding the angle of attack established for the normal operation of the aircraft. Factory tests also allowed to determine the characteristics of the NK-86 engines in flights in various modes, to evaluate the operation of power plant systems, aircraft systems and equipment.
                        On December 26, 1980, the Moscow – Tashkent flight opened regular operation of the aircraft on the country's air lines. A new stage has begun in the history of the IL-86, which, without a doubt, has also become a qualitatively new milestone in the development of Soviet civil aviation. During 1981, IL-86 aircraft were put into operation at once on several domestic and international airlines.
                        Now keep on about the PRC:
                        The total cost of the program exceeds $ 8,3 billion. The C919 incorporates all the most advanced technologies available to the PRC. In addition, when designing, Comac uses huge computer resources, including the Tianhe-2 supercomputer - the most powerful in the world at that time. According to plans, Comac will produce up to 150 airliners annually (the overall plan of the entire program is to produce up to 2300 units).
                        In 2014, a shift in the first delivery date for 2019 was announced due to difficulties in production. On November 2, 2015, the first C919 prototype was presented to the public.
                        On May 5, 2017, flight tests of the first prototype of the C919 aircraft began. During a 79-minute flight, the aircraft equipped with CFM Leap 1C engines gained a height of 3 thousand meters and a maximum flight speed of 315 km / h. Flight performance was normal, the goals set for the first test flight were achieved, the Chinese manufacturer said.

    Judging by the design inside (with wide chairs), these 6 hours can be comfortably spent.


    Only the owner companies have not been replaced by standard narrow ones. And then it will begin - more passengers - more profit. Nobody thinks about comfort ...

    Aeroflot’s distance is quite acceptable.
    But somehow he flew from Hong Kong to Taiwan with a local airline.
    That was the number with my then not gigantic 188 cm.
    The distance between the seats is calculated on the dimensions of local residents ...
    Everything else was good, especially the food, but its reception was an exercise in dexterity.
    Saved only that managed to transfer to a place at the aisle and sit sideways.

    I noticed an interesting phenomenon in Aeroflot: several times during the summer I used the services of this company and it seems that the ticket says that the SuperJet plane, but I have never managed to fly on it ... All Airbases. Who knows what this is connected with?

        Aeroflot has a large fleet of aircraft. When passenger traffic grows on a flight, the side of higher capacity is allowed. "Su-95" in Sheremetyevo are based on some settlements. The bus to them rides about twenty minutes, going around all the lanes. Flying on a Su-95 is quite comfortable. And the thought warms that if the automation fails, then the pilots will be able to manually fly. And then foreign planes like to leave at the peak in automatic mode, when there is a failure of computer systems

    On Tuesday, the plane covered a distance of about 4,5 thousand kilometers without landing six hours. The flight took place at an altitude of 10 thousands of meters.
    Speed ​​is not enough, about 750 km / h is obtained

    Let them make an engine for at least ten years? How miserable is the production system of the Russian Federation in comparison with the USSR and China.


    The real squalor is users with such comments.

    Have you done a lot?
    Do you even have a concept about creating complex products?

    Remind me, how many years in China have made an engine of this class?
    If you recall, let me know, it will be interesting to know that they created them at all

    At the same time, specify how many countries in the world are able to build such engines.

    The PD-14 engine was still boasted at MAKS 2015. There was plenty of time. all the more, the country did not start building from scratch; there were some developments.

    This aircraft, with our engine and avionics, can only be forced on airlines. Or introduce barrage duties on Western planes. And as soon as the situation in the world calms down, they will be immediately rid of them. Here, such a sad prospect for them.
    Aeroflot operates the Superjet only because the holes in the schedule are blocked by Boeings and Airbuses. Saratov is tormented with the AN-148, which he received from "Russia". Let's see how enough they are.
    Unfortunately, our aircraft (more precisely, engines and avionics) do not stand up to competition with Western products. And this affects the competitiveness of airlines in the world market. Plus, disgusting logistics and after-sales support.
    If barrage duties are introduced, the producer will lose the incentive to eliminate the shortcomings of his "brainchild". The story of Tupolev 204/214 will be repeated.
    And so, in the photo: it looks good.

    You can argue with the Lord for a long time on this "topic." Today one thing is clear - the car flies. Yes, like everyone has "childhood" diseases. But there hasn’t been anything serious there yet. The PD-14 motor has been tested and it’s complex He knows that it’s big enough, in parallel there is the launch of a serial production. According to its characteristics, it is no worse than "imported" ones. Now we need a raid of the product, so soon several more MC21 machines will be added for testing. So far so far everything is normal. Import, of course it is, but this is not critical. The main problem of entering the series is the development of new technologies in the production process. (Wing, pipeline, harnesses, etc.), the organization of cooperation with suppliers for the assembly plant, and primarily with the Russians. So the plane in this case is only the visible part of the project .Something like this...
