MC-21 Status: How is the main liner of Russia?

29
In November, Irkut Corporation published a report on the status of development and testing of its main creation, the MC-21 airliner. How are things with the newest domestic aircraft?


In a fine spring day on May 28, the 2017 of the year, the MC-21-300 flight model made its first flight. It was assembled at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant and it was decided to carry out the first test phase there. At this stage, which lasted all summer and half of autumn, it was necessary to confirm that the aircraft, in fact, can fly and that all its systems are efficient. In addition, he remained in his "nest" in Irkutsk, so that all the problems could be solved on the spot and quickly enough.

During this time, the new liner made two dozen test flights and confirmed the main flight characteristics, such as stability and controllability in various modes. MS-21 was accelerated to a speed of 860 km / h, and raised to heights up to 10.000 meters. However, the main tests for him in store in Zhukovsky.

    We can ... when we want ... a very modern car ... We would also support the domestic manufacturer, forbid the purchase of Western aircraft ...

      On May 28, the liner made its first flight the new Russian passenger short-medium-range airliner MS-21. The head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Denis Manturov, predicted that about a thousand such aircraft would be produced in the next 20 years.

      In April 2017, the government also discussed the issue of supporting the production of another domestic passenger aircraft, the Sukhoi Superjet 100. It is a matter of supplying Red Wings with up to 100 of these aircraft between 2018 and 2022. Officials of the Ministry of Industry and Trade expect to create several airlines on the basis of the carrier to service lines between cities with a population of more than 200 thousand people. In parallel, plans are being developed to subsidize the route network and create linear service stations in some Russian regions.

        The Russian government has instructed its representatives on the boards of directors of state-owned companies to initiate consideration of the acquisition or leasing of domestic aircraft. It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the directive of the Cabinet.

        “When considering this issue, representatives of the interests of the Russian Federation in the boards of directors (supervisory boards) of joint-stock companies are obliged to vote“ for ”the adoption of decisions providing, if necessary, to purchase only domestic aircraft from 2017, or to rent from 2019,” the statement says document.

        The agency clarifies that the document applies to all state-owned companies except Aeroflot, the State Transport Leasing Company (GTLK) and VTB-Leasing.

        There are some other exceptions: turbojet airliners with a maximum take-off weight of less than 3,8 thousand kilograms and a flight range of more than 5 thousand kilometers were not included in the list of prohibited foreign aircraft, as well as aircraft with a weight of more than 38 thousand kilograms, and a flight range of more than 12 thousand kilometers . Thus, as RIA Novosti notes, this initiative will not affect a number of foreign business-class aircraft, such as the Gulfstream G650.

      what can we do ???? The Swedish company produces the anti-standard system for the aircraft, the Irish make the hydraulics, the Americans make the engines, we are also dependent on French supplies, our Radioelectronic Technologies group produces a multifunctional indicator for the MS-21 together with the Israelis. We buy carbon fiber for the manufacture of aircraft composite elements in the USA and Japan, and production lines in Austria. The sample presented at the rollout has American PWt1400 & Whitney engines PWXNUMXG

      The first 70 sides will definitely be with PW engines, there are very few orders for the PD-14 aircraft. According to the plans of the UAC with PD-14 there will be 50% of the aircraft built, but orders are only from Red Wings for 4 sides with Russian engines.

          the fault of all new growing planes-- NO OWNER WITH MONEY.
          the separation of aviation "corporations" and banks gives a gap between R&D and operation.
          there is no money (plant) and do not want to give (bank). In the USSR there was 1 owner.
          just pump loot, even carry bananas, even aviation.
          "conditional Gref" is to blame for the fact that they give a present to every year to their wives .. and they don’t.
          10 years without Courchevel and MC21 flies.
          They shake it from the beginning 00 = x
          NO SINGLE "FIN-PROM GROUP". with market launch and service.
          GUILTY STRUCTURE OF BANKING BUSINESS.
          WESTERN GAME RULES HAVE BEEN ADOPTED AND DO NOT REACH THE GIANT INVEST BANKS, which finance all stages of the life-work of industrial corporations.

            All you need is the OWNER. In the USSR, for such a formulation they could give in the face - well, it would not work out for us to become the second USA. Not physically angiogenic first. The planet will not pull such a second system.
            And we deny ourselves from another system (what irony) as soon as we can.

              this is the only way to link the whole country into inter-factory cooperation.
              or Gosplan or the Banker is the owner. interested in long-term pumping of dough.
              I sat down on a topic and fed 25 years - "MS 21" OR TU 334, OR IL119-9.
              ANY CAPRICE FOR HIS MONEY WILL BE MADE, BUT UNDER ITS REQUIREMENTS.
              no requirements, enough vacation in Courchevel.
              and back to these orcs in Kurgan and Irkutsk. (add your city yourself ...)

                to pull the dough, you don’t need to sit on the topic - it is long, risky and unprofitable.
                Where it is more profitable to invest somewhere in the USA - they will stroke the head and the percentage is higher.
                What about the orcs? Elves don't care.

            Can you imagine that US billionaires are buying Monaco citizenship for 880000 thousand euros without VAT?)))
            But our top billionaires, founders of Yandex, etc., etc., bought themselves and their families the citizenship of Monaco.
            Our people are rotten at the top of the money pyramid and they earned money here, they spend it there - There!)

      Has anyone understood all the same why there are no wings on wings?

      To study the effect of winglets on the flight dynamics of the MC-21 at TsAGI, wings with aerodynamic tips were designed and tested in wind tunnels. The installation of winglets requires a significant strengthening of the wing structure and an increase in its mass. With side gusts of wind, the winglets create serious bending and twisting loads on the wing, significantly increasing the influence of side wind on the plane during takeoff and landing, as well as in turbulence zones.

      At the same time, at the initial design stage in the early 2000s, MC-21 winglets were provided for (photo of the airplane model in the article title), i.e., the wing structure did not allow to obtain the required fuel efficiency. But as the project developed, new materials and technologies appeared, they were abandoned, and precisely because the MS-21 is a modern and technologically advanced aircraft with high aerodynamic quality that does not require any geometry changes at the ends of its wings.

        Here are the fools Boeing, Airbus and other Embraers ... they are probably not modern and not technological, unlike the breakthrough MS-21 ...

          In my opinion everything was readily accessible. Why they are needed and why they are not. The ending is a necessary measure where the aerodynamic quality of the wing is low in order to increase the length.
