SibNIA will modernize Mongolian planes An-2
Modernized aircraft TVS-2MS during a demonstration of the Mongolian airline MIAT Mongolian Airlines.

The director of the institute, Vladimir Barsuk, expressed the hope that the first Mongolian TVS-2MS would rise into the air by the end of the current year.

According to him, "the work within the framework of the joint project has already begun: technological maps are being drawn up, accreditation is being issued." It is planned to repair more than 20 aircraft.

The director said that “while the work is being organized jointly with MIAT, in the future the Mongolian side will choose another enterprise, on the basis of which they will repair aircraft”. This enterprise will be accredited as a repair base for An-2 and TVS-2MS.

It is reported that the plans of SibNIA to adjust the modernization of the Mongolian An-2 became known in May of this year, when TVS-2MS were brought to carry out demonstration flights to Mongolia. Then it was noted that the modernized aircraft will be used "in agriculture, mining, air ambulance and other areas of the national economy."

Operation An-2 in Mongolia completely stopped due to the fact that they fly on gasoline. The TVS-2MS uses Honeywell TPE331 turboprop engines.

    Good thing. It would be better, from all sides, with its motor, rather than Honeville. But he is gone, I hope so far.

    When the motors learn how to do, no matter how new the technique, there’s no motor, wassatYes, make two three motors, then wind everything around them all you need.

      When motors will learn to do

      We have learned to make motors for a long time! Only now there is no order to do, for a long time!

    Guys, who wrote the article, who edited, who knows how in Russian? All the cons. Examples?
    Please
    1) "This company will be accredited as a repair base for the An-2 and TVS-2M"
    2) "The operation of the An-2 in Mongolia was completely stopped due to the fact that they fly on gasoline. Honeywell TPE2 turboprop engines are used on the TVS-331MS." So explain that the American Honeywell TPE331 runs on jet fuel and that it is cheaper
    3) "Then it was noted that the modernized aircraft will be used" in agriculture, mining, air ambulance and other sectors of the economy. "
    In the "mining" is how? How are the drill rigs?

      The development of 1947 and is still in operation. Jumped from him repeatedly. The most ingenious car, airplanes rarely live for 70 years, can only be compared with Douglas / Li-2.

    Here the Mongols can afford the modernization of the AN-2! They obviously do not know that these ANs can be declared "old junk", order imported equipment and receive kickbacks for each ordered plane!

    How one line can spoil a completely positive article ... "Honeywell TPE2 turboprop engines are used on TVS-331MS."
