The latest Russian Il-78M-90A tanker aircraft made its first flight. On Thursday, the press service of the company "Aviation complex to them. S.V. Ilyushin. "


Today, January 25, the flight model of the IL-78М-90А advanced tanker aircraft made its first flight. Pilot the plane chief pilot "Ilyushin" Hero of the Russian Federation, Honored Test Pilot of the Russian Federation Nikolai Dmitrievich Kuimov
- said in a statement.

The newest tanker IL-78М-90А made the first flight


The improved modification of the tanker was created on the basis of the newest military transport aircraft IL-76MD-90А, while the design and creation of design documentation, as well as the production of the aircraft, were carried out on the basis of modern digital technologies.

Thanks to the four engines of the new PS-90А-76, the advanced tanker has an increased range and can take more fuel to refuel the aircraft than previous models. The specific fuel consumption of these power plants on the 12-14% is less than that of the D-30KP engines installed on earlier versions of the aircraft fuel tankers.

In addition, the flight-navigation complex was fully updated on the aircraft, as well as the "glass cabin" was implemented, which allows to reduce the load on the crew and improve flight safety.

The machine has three devices, a hose-cone-type refueling system - two on the wing consoles and one in the aft fuselage on the right side. IL-78М-90А will allow the simultaneous refueling of two front-line aircraft. With the tail unit it is possible to refuel long-range and special aircraft. When using IL-78М-90А on the ground, it is assumed that four aircraft will be refueled simultaneously.

The newer tanker IL-78М-90А retained the possibility of using it as a military transport aircraft. Re-equipment does not require a large amount of work and is carried out at the aerodrome. If necessary, it can be equipped with fire extinguishing equipment.
- noted in the company.

The new machine was the first tanker aircraft produced in Russia. Prior to this, all IL-78 gathered in Uzbekistan, reports TASS

      I look and the Tupolevites earlier than the planned Lebed were lifted into the air and the Ilyushinites are not far behind ... it would be nice if the “crackers” with the Mikoyanites and the Yakovtsians would push. You look, and our civilian aircraft will come to life and the aerospace forces will be updated earlier.

        yes, if the videoconferencing is more or less tolerable, then the civilian one is not very tolerable. here everyone needs to click: both our companies and the authorities and the authorities are creaking our vehicles. I understand there: the contract, the technical service, the salary, but until they force them to take their own, neither the production nor the unit of the machine will become either better or cheaper. remember only how they killed the NK93 engine for the sake of the promises of Western companies. although such a time was, everything fell in the heat of democracy. it is necessary to force to take our planes, I am sure of it. to renew those programs TU334, TU family 200x. I read about the update YAK 42. press necessary.

      In the video, the new “manager”, the campaign leader, the son of Rogozin, was noted (with a letter, and then with flowers), young and early.
      “A lot” probably invested in the creation of a new tanker, and therefore not to be promoted at the expense of people who really created a new plane for years. It’s also a medal, otherwise the order will be awarded "for many years of valiant work", which sons of our "first" receive.
      It is disgusting, spoiled people the holiday of the First Flight of a new car.

          I know one thing, so that a professional engineer, supervisor is instructed to send the plane to the First Flight, he must go a long way from a foreman, a design engineer to the head of the workshop (bureau), department, service, production manager, plant director, Chief Designer, only then he an honorable road will open to send OWN, a long-suffering aircraft for flight.
          And here is the PR of a thug (as they used to say in the past years) a young guy, without life and professional experience, due to the "weight" of his dad, who was appointed head of the Ilyushin campaign.
          Do you even think that write.

        How many young Colonel Putin "invested" (together with the leader Sobchak!) In a country at the helm of which he suddenly found himself?
        Maybe of course the young Rogozin was in a high position thanks to a protege, but he wipes his pants there for good reason. Engaged in business! In previous posts, he proved it. I am sure, in the end, that the fact that he is the son of the vice president will only benefit the Ulyanovsk people.
        Very beautiful aircraft, especially with new engines. A difficult decision to transfer its production to Russia was made not in vain!

          Haha "He's doing business." How can he do business in the aircraft building, aircraft design campaign if he is in aviation “not with his ear, not with a snout”? What can he lead there? Do not write nonsense.
          This is the same substitution of some kind of aviation professional for thieves ’clumsy set to“ feed ”, as it was done in Rostec when professional Alexei Fedorov, former head of the Irkutsk Aviation Plant, the Irkut campaign, head of the Russian aircraft building holding, deputy "Russian Technologies" in aviation, has now been replaced by a furniture maker, who once failed the Defense Ministry, Serdyukov.

            Andrei Kalinovsky, never an aviator, majoring in electrical engineer. Since 2007, for five years, Andrei Vladimirvich served as Director General of JSC V.P. Novosibirsk Aviation Production Association Chkalov. "

            From 2013 to 2014, Kalinovsky was the first vice president of production - director of the Komsomolsk-on-Amur branch, president of the Sukhoi Civil Aircraft CJSC.

            In 2014, Kalinovsky Andrei Vladimirovich was appointed General Director of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise State Space Research and Production Center named after M.V. Khrunicheva.
            It was he who raised the production of the latest Superjet-100 aircraft. It was with him that the peak of production was 35 aircraft per year! And this hour he was sent to a responsible area of ​​work - to direct the Cosmos, and to rake up the accumulated problems of the current "professionals" in the space sphere.
            What do you say to that? Why was Kalinovsky, not being an aviator, successful in aircraft manufacturing? Maybe from what is more important to be before, the organizer?

              Why was Kalinovsky, not being an aviator, successful in aircraft manufacturing? Maybe from what is more important to be before, the organizer? - Stas157

              Jack of all trades, "and sharpen boots and bake pies"?
              That which Kalinovsky "raised" this plane - "Superjet-100" can still be argued and argued. And they argue by the way, and do not buy it much.
              From the point of view of operational qualities, this aircraft, made by the way more than 75% of foreign parts, is not needed for Russia.
              This type of aircraft should be operated on regional lines in Siberia and the Far East, and there are many unpaved airfields where this aircraft, with a distance of 46 centimeters from the ground to the engine air intake, cannot be operated, it will immediately suck a bunch of stones and dust into the engines.
              Why did such "managers" Kalinovsky for Russia build such an airplane? Or for sale? But what about the Russian open spaces that are suffocating from the lack of this class of aircraft with only an upper wing arrangement, such as the AN-148 or turboprop type IL-114?
              Instead of quickly moving to the Russian market the same AN-148 or IL-114, which would have already eradicated the problems of regional transportation during this time, created this “miracle” unnecessary for Russia - Superjet-100, which knocked out our Russian developments from development to production, and created a civilian aircraft crisis.
              Now we will wait for such "manager"-decisions in the space sphere. It’s not because of such Kalinowski that rockets are falling down in us, no matter how priests illuminate them?
              Professionals should work in any business, not "managers", sharpened to profit of any value, such as Kalinovsky. These are the "managers" Kalinovskys who have ruined our industry, all counting on this minute profit at all costs, reducing production, people, dispensaries for the health of workers, making unprofessional decisions.
              By the way, Kalinovsky was not transferred to the Ministry of Defense, where he recently announced the termination of operation of 2 super Russian submarines because of their "low profitability"? Or maybe which of his fellow students “managers”, at all trades of the masters, works in the Moscow Region and expects the profitability of one or another weapon there?

In addition to lengthy answers in the style of the liberal opposition - "Yes, he is the son of Rogozin! Yes, he is young, LOOKING! His dad set!" You did not give other answers.

              I will say one thing: “It should not be necessary in any professional business, especially to the top professional posts, to appoint“ managers ”,“ no ears, no snoops ”who do not understand the business entrusted to them from above - by pulling, kinship, for a bribe !!!!
              This is not only the humiliation of the business professionals who created this machine, it is a show to everyone that not work and skill in business is the path to success, but simply blat, corruption, a bribe, kinship, decides what place a person should occupy in society. And it corrupts people. It does not benefit the professional business in any field of activity.
              It is a pity that you do not understand simple truths. Or have they already fit into the mercenary justification of people who occupy a high position in society, and now who do not know the boundaries in their desires?

      Its flight and navigation equipment is modern and the cabin is also completely new, and the engines are certainly not new. If you finish off the new PD-30 engines, then it is quite possible to assemble a new transporter in Ulyanovsk. It would be a desire, and of course money.

    The developers explained that the new aircraft, at the request of the customer, should retain the possibility of using it as a military transport. The tanker will have a ramp, landing equipment, and, if necessary, fire extinguishing and refueling equipment can be installed on the plane. The latter includes additional fuel tanks inside the cargo compartment and unified refueling suspension units.
