Legendary "Ilyushin" will lift into the sky new aircraft

10
Today, Ilyushin Design Bureau is loaded with more than 100%. Over the past few years, the design offices have begun preparing for the release of new aircraft. One of them is a descendant of the legendary IL-76.


Externally, the IL-76MD-90А is similar to its predecessor. However, in addition to new communication systems and flight-navigation complex, more modern engines are installed on it. Due to this, the flight range and payload increased to 60 tons. Under the contract, the Ministry of Defense of Russia should receive these military transport workers 39.

A promising light transport aircraft of the Il-112В class is also on the way. The engines for it are already being tested on the basis of the IL-76LL flying laboratory.

Civil projects are being developed on Ilyushin. This IL-96-400M is a new generation of wide-body long-haul airliners, and the small IL-114 is designed to serve regional lines.

    The news is positive. Every time you read such news, you think, finally, it happened! We'll see. MS-medium-range, like Superjet. Long-range - Il. Short regular distances, as I understand it, will also close Il. Now we need an An-2 replacement.

        And who is waiting for us there, in these markets? Only if the planes are higher, faster and stronger. And still the maintenance and repair infrastructure needs to be revived. And this is not a "pound of raisins." It’s necessary to do it, and slowly it’s being done, which is a little good.

          is this “doing” in terms comparable with work after the Second World War before the collapse of the USSR or slower?

        An interesting poster on the wall behind the plane)))
        MB, but the practicality of the An-2 is legendary. Let's hope that TVS-2DT will be the same in this regard.
        I am confused by composites. This increases the cost of production and limits the volume of production.

          The linen wing is no good. And composites tend to get cheaper.
          In any case, it will cost no more than “Cessn” and “Bombardier”.

    IL-96 is a wonderful car. You can get on its basis a modern liner. Composite wing, remotorization for two PD-35, modern avionics. Cheap and cheerful.

    According to IL-96, so far only gallant statements. VASO only for the presidential 96th, and to Cuba, in terms of maintenance of these aircraft works. There are no new orders.

    For such a state of the aviation industry, I must say "thank you" to these Judaists: the Gaidar, Chubais and other bastards, on which the wall is crying.
