Rogozin: tests of the second MC-21 will begin in the spring

42
Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin announced preparations for testing the second MS-21 main liner and confirmed plans to begin mass production of the aircraft in 2019, reports Interfax.




The first mainline airliner MC-21-300 has already made 33 test flights. In late February - early March, the second plane will join the tests, the assembly of which is completed at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant,
wrote Rogozin in his Facebook.

There are preparations for launching in 2019 year in the mass production of this newest Russian passenger liner,
added on.

According to the vice-premier, “the aircraft will be mass-produced with the PD-14 engine”.

In December, the agency reported that the flight tests of the PD-14 aircraft engine, designed for MS-21-300 aircraft, switched to the last stage before receiving the Rosaviation certificate.

The MS-21 passenger narrow-body airliner family (“XXI Century Long-haul Aircraft”) is a civilian project of the Irkut Corporation. The base version of the aircraft is MC-21-300 on 180-200 seats, in addition, it is expected to launch production of MC-21-200 (150 seats), as well as MC-21-400 (more than 200 seats).

      Both PD-15 and PD-18 are already being developed, and there are already plans to develop the PD-35 by the year 25.

              Well, offer a fully Russian-made aircraft. Tell me, what kind of aircraft do you need to buy for companies to be satisfied? And yet, name the model aircraft completely American-made, fully Canadian-made, Brazilian, Chinese? Yes, even European. I'm really looking forward to it.

              The first MS-21 also came with mattress engines and western avionics ... as the series grows, I think most of the components and components will be transferred to domestic counterparts.

The PW-1400G engine, developed by the American company Pratt & Whitney, which in the serial MS-21 will be changed to PD-14 or PD-15 ...

            It is known that the main problem, technically excellent and cheap in price, Superjet, is marketing. Even Russia’s friendly countries are in no hurry to buy this excellent product. And in Russia itself, private airlines often prefer to fly on the same type (usually used) Embraers than take the domestic Superjet. https://www.bfm.ru/news/347472
            I believe that this is an unacceptable situation when they managed to produce an inexpensive and competitive world-class aircraft, and even domestic companies do not want to take it! Having solved the main tasks (outstanding characteristics at a cheap price), they stumbled on secondary ones (maintenance, spare parts, expensive credit, expensive ownership). Obviously, these problems need to be solved, because if they are not solved, then these very problems can become a stumbling block for the next Russian breakthrough project, MS-21.

                Yes, I even gave you a link! Have you not noticed? Public take, and private can take the same, but used Embraer 190 instead of the Superjet. If this were not the case, the number of orders for the Superjet has clearly increased!

              An inexpensive and competitive aircraft, this is the Chinese S-919. Therefore, there are 2 times more orders for it. And its price is one and a half times lower. At the same time, it has CFM International LEAP 1C, to which our PD-14 is far, far away.
              And high-quality avionics, including western.

                Inexpensive is his only virtue. For the rest, its advantages end. The Chinese are making an airplane of the past for world aircraft construction.
                The MS-21 has a composite wing of large elongation, an increased fuselage diameter, and avionics is in no way inferior to the western one. There is simply no weak revenge! A true 21st century airplane.

                2 aircraft built over 10 years confirm the competitiveness and coolness of the C919, and 150 aircraft with the SSJ100 built since 2011 is so fucking hot oil. Oh well

              Perhaps they do not take it also because they are not sure that tomorrow all sanctions will not be imposed on all foreign SSJ components.

    Well, yes with the PD-14 in series ... Something Aeroflot ordered a foreign car. a lot. Or is it not considered? I would forbid ordering foreign-made engines for our customers. In the interests of national security. And then they’ll disconnect via the Internet or make a mistake by reading information about flights. Or they will stop supplying spare parts during a special period and we will sit in a puddle throughout the country. (Although we are not the first time). Let ours be a little worse, but ours and money will remain in the country and not support a foreign economy beyond the hill.

            The field of air transportation is a very delicate topic in the issue of national security. And Aeroflot buys dozens of the latest foreign cars, its fleet of liners is the youngest in Russia. Okay, let him buy wide-body ones - they killed the production of Ilov -96. But as for the MS-21 segment - aka Yak-242, then it was possible to wait a couple of years. But how would they support their manufacturer!

              Thank God you have nothing to do with Aeroflot leadership. Thank God. I don’t want our people to fly in junk and risk their lives just because the company needs to wait a few years to start buying fresh airplanes in their country. At the same time, production will be 5-10 aircraft per year, the first few years. And Aeroflot’s own park, take a look.
