The MS-21 aircraft in flight tests at Zhukovsky gained altitude in 12 km


On Thursday, the prototype MC-21-300 made its first flight from the LII Gromov aerodrome. The flight lasted over three hours. During the flight, the characteristics of stability and controllability were determined at a height of from six to 12 thousand meters. All aircraft systems worked normally.
- Noted the press service.

The flight tests of MC-21-300 are continued on the basis of the Flight Test and Development Complex (YITC) of the Yakovlev Design Bureau.

Irkut recalled that on October 17, after completing the test flight phase at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant, the new Russian airliner made a non-stop flight from Irkutsk to the Gromov Airfield, overcoming a distance of about 4,5 thousand km in six hours.

1 November it was reported that the first public presentation of the newest Russian aircraft MC-21 could take place in the middle of 2018.

      But not at the expense of quality

      There are already rumors that, they say, it is necessary to increase the number of seats.
      The economy, that is, business, will worsen comfort.

        If you can increase the number of seats, this is a plus rather than a minus. This does not mean that the knees of the passenger will abut the front row. Perhaps this was originally laid down in the design of the airframe. But what is an increase immediately at 30 seats is the possibility of additional passenger transportation and lower airline costs. All this is important, as is fuel economy in the new PD-14 engine. If something goes wrong, they will return to the old version.

          Once a customer came to the hatter, brought a sheep skin and asked:
          - Sew me a hat from this skin!
          “Good,” the master says, “I will sew!”
          The customer came from the master and thinks:
          But the skin is big - maybe you can cut out two hats? He thought so, returned to the hatter and asked:
          “Tell me, master, but can you sew two hats from this skin?”
          “Why not?” - answered the hats. - I can.
          “If so, there are already two hats,” said the customer and left.
          He passed a little, thought, again returned to the cap and asked:
          “Master, but will you sew three hats from the skin?”
          “Why not?” - answered the hats. - Soshy and three.
          The customer was delighted and asked:
          “But will you sew four?”
          “Soshy and four!” - answered the master.
          - And five?
          - Soshoy and five.
          - Then sew me five hats!
          The customer left, but halfway back he returned and asked:
          “Master, are you going to sew six hats?”
          “Soshy and six.”
          “But will you sew seven?” Or maybe eight hats?
          “Why not?” And eight soshu! - answered the master.
          - Well, then sew me eight hats!
          - Okay, I sew eight. Come back in a week for your order.
          A week later, the customer came to the master:
          - Are my hats ready?
          “Ready,” the master answers. He called his student and said:
          “Go and bring his cap to the customer.”
          The student immediately brought eight little caps - not to put them on his head, but on an apple! The customer looked at them, was surprised and asked:
          “What is this?”
          “These are the hats you ordered for me,” the hats answered.
          “Hey master, why are these hats so small?”
          - And you yourself think! - answered the hats.
          The customer took eight little hats, left and began to ponder: "Why are these such little hats turned out? Why? .. belay

        Siegen ...There are already rumors that they say it is necessary to increase the number of seats. Economy, that is, business, will worsen comfort.

        Almost all types of aircraft have several options for placing the number of seats in the cabin, and the customer (airline) orders the factory - which option they need.

          But the plant needs, of course, the cheapest option: more seats - more profit.
          As I was glad that the seats are wide, the distance in front of the seats is large ...
          Damn it! bully The main thing is to enable the customer to choose an option.
          What about the passenger? Do not want to - do not fly. stop

        The first four experienced ones will fly on American purchased prior to the sanctions. Then, on the PD-14, created under the MS-21 and is now undergoing certification tests, which I plan to complete before the end of this year.

          Sanctions have nothing to do with it ... Engines are already serial and certified. They have nothing to do with sanctions. Now, if you decide to make a military aircraft with them, then supplies will cease. And even when the PD-14s are put into production, I don’t think that more than 40% of the aircraft will be built with PDs ... and even that will be a victory.
