IL-114: why the forgotten plane has a great future

24
By the beginning of the 80 of the last century, air travel became more affordable. Service began to use not only the well-off citizens, but also the middle class. Increasing importance played flights of small extent. At this time, new economical turboprop aircraft appeared in the United States and Europe, which were subsequently massively involved in domestic regional lines.


In the Soviet Union, it was also decided to create such a machine, especially since for a country with such dimensions it was extremely necessary. An-24, then in operation, was on the verge of resource exhaustion.

The IL-114 was designed by a universal aircraft: it could land and take off from unpaved runways and work in extreme temperature conditions. In 1990, the prototype made its first flight, and on this история This machine has been put on pause ... Until today.

      It's not about the country. As a professional familiar with airplanes told me, our engines consume a lot of fuel, and as a result, are unprofitable, unlike Boeing engines. But whether this is so or not, I think on Vaud there will be professionals who know this not by hearsay.

        Boeing does not build engines for its aircraft.

          Are there any specialists on Boeing engines?
          But if there is a serious problem with the efficiency of our engines

            In Soviet times, we had the IL-20 at the KChF. Asked to fly. For 8 (eight) hours of flight, I almost lost my mind. Economical engines in the USSR did or not?

        He’s a shitty professional. In general, turboprop engines are much more economical than turbofan counterparts, second only to speed and noise.
        And on the Il-114-100 there are P&WC PW127H.
        As for TV7-117, Klimov will never bring them to mind.

    They say, they say, they say .... Maybe it’s enough to finally say goodbye and begin to build airplanes ?! And then they promise a lot, and in the end, "zilch"! In 2017, they promised the first flight of Il-112 (Mr. Rogozin) ("zilch"), now they are generally silent about it! They immediately promised the “series” MS-21 (Mr. Manturov) (zilch), and the IL-114 already in 2017 promised the first flight, if I am not mistaken, the same Rogozin (zilch)! Perhaps it’s time to give the deadline for "empty chatter language" !?

      Dear, the plane is ALREADY being assembled in Lukhovitsy. Power assembly line 12 cars per year.

        Dear, IL-112 is also "ALREADY being collected" at VASO in Voronezh! Only collect ALREADY two years !!!! And it is still not known when they will gather! It is not known when the first flight will be! So when ALREADY will fly, and it’s better if it WILL ALREADY be in the series, then VICTORY!
        I am outraged that public people give empty promises, and then they do not bear any responsibility for this !!!! It’s one thing when it’s the OBS (One Grandmother Said) and another thing if it’s a statement by the Deputy Prime Minister or Minister! I think: if you say, do it! Did not - answer for your words!

    What engines will be put on this IL? I think not those that were developed in the 80s, but something new and apparently economical.

      No, they’re not building. Even the OCD is not finished for the IL-114-300 model. And the engine is still being tested.

      They finish the backlog of TAPOIMCH, when they finish it, I’m not in the same group, maybe next year, maybe after. Rogozin and the Son probably know, and so

    I hope that this car goes into series. But Boeing buys engines from either General Dynamics or Prime Whitney. It depends on customers. As far as I know, even Americans refuse Boeing in favor of Watermelons. It will be difficult for us. Very much. The market is already divided and one MS will not solve the problem.

    This is a good plane. And most importantly, the country needs it! The development of domestic airlines is not possible without such machines!

    "The An-24s operating then were on the verge of running out of resources."
    The author of the article, apparently, does not know the fact that the An-24s were in operation even now and even “then” (that is, in the Yeltsin’s 90s and the perestroika 80s) - all of them were produced before 1979. So about the "edge of the exhaustion of the resource" - not an argument.

    "But Boeing buys engines from General Dynamics or from Prime Whitney"
    GeneralDynamics does not make engines for Boeing from the word "at all." Give the name of another "office" to the letter "G"? And also another "company" making engines for the Boeing? The letter "R"?

    Another good news, only from the past about the future. That is, in principle, this will happen "never." )))
