Construction of the second MC-21 completed


"At the Irkutsk Aviation Plant, a branch of Irkut Corporation PJSC, the construction of the second MC-21-300 prototype aircraft for flight testing was completed. The 25 of March was transferred from the final assembly shop to the flight test department of the enterprise," the message said Minpromtorg.

When building a new aircraft, the test results of the first prototype were taken into account.

Completion of the assembly of the second aircraft is an important step in the implementation of the MS-21 program. This year's connection to the flight tests of new machines will allow solving the key tasks of the project: complete the MC-21 certification in due time, launch mass production, deliver the first liners to the customer,
cites the press service of the words of the Minister Denis Manturov.

In total, four MC-21-300 aircraft will participate in flight tests.

It is also reported that "at present, the fuselage of the third MS-21-300 aircraft has been assembled at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant; compartments and assemblies of the fourth machine are being assembled;

The first plane passes flight tests in Zhukovsky at the airport of the LII. M.M. Gromov.

              Do you mean PD-14?
              “There are three flight test engines in production for Irkut Corporation with delivery dates of late 2018. The first of them will be assembled in May, it will be tested at a serial stand. At MS-21 we should see it in the second quarter of 2019 years, "said Popov.

                On the MS-21 will not be PD-14, but PD-14M (or PD-15) ... it has more traction, with about the same dimensions and weight.

                    No, our PDs will be installed everywhere, that's why it is being certified. And the entire line of PD engines will also pass through it, including the PD-35 in the future.
                    MS-21 (in the future it will probably be called Yak-242) is created as a competitor to watermelons and loaves (Boeing-737 MAX and Airbus A320neo) and the presence of American engines can greatly complicate our life in this competition.
                    The MS-21 project is not just a single aircraft project, but an entire line with a modular principle.
                    As part of the program to create a family of new-generation passenger aircraft, the MS-21-300 (160-211 seats) and MS-21-200 (130-176 seats) liners are currently being developed.

                    In the future, the MC-21 family of aircraft is supposed to be expanded. In particular, increased both in length (up to 256 seats in a single-class configuration) and in wing area of ​​the MC-21-400 with a take-off mass of 105 tons and the PD-14M engine. In the more distant future, MS-21-500, MS-21-600 and MS-21-700, the exact parameters of which are still being specified. Long-range versions of the MS-21-300LR and MS-21-400LR with a commercial range of up to 12000 km with an increased fuel supply and PD-18R engines are also considered. It is assumed that in the long run the take-off mass of family aircraft may exceed 155 tons, and engine thrust will reach 20-25 and even 30 tons

                        If the customer wants, they will deliver the mattress dvigun, but ... PD engines are certified not only for flights within the country, but also to fly around the world in the future. Therefore, with PD engines .. a) the price of the liner itself will decrease, b) the PD engine is conceived as a dvigun that will surpass the American analogue in many respects, and c) the certification of PD engines is international.

                        Of course, it would be nice, but ... now on domestic airlines there is still a strong advantage on the side of the Boeing and Airbasses ... but there are certain positive changes ..
                        For example :
                        Work continues on the design of the Fregat Ecojet wide-body medium-range aircraft. The design bureau has completed the conceptual design phase; a digital airplane layout has already been fully developed. With the wide participation of international cooperation, aerodynamic and strength calculations and experiments were carried out. The development of basic aircraft systems, avionics, and a power plant begins.

                        Sukhoi Civil Aircraft completed the development of a draft design (Gate 3) of an extended version of the Superjet - SSJ 100SV, designed for 120 passengers. In 2017, at the Le Bourget air show and at MAKS-2017, the company will be ready to present the aircraft to potential buyers.

                        In 2016, a decision was made to finance the resumption of production of a turboprop aircraft of local airlines Il-114-300 and wide-body long-range Il-96-400M.

                        And also there is such a development together with the Chinese ..
                        CR929, ShFDMS (wide-body long-range aircraft) - a project of a promising joint Russian-Chinese wide-body aircraft for 250-300 passengers. Developed by the Russian United Aircraft Corporation and the Chinese COMAC.

                        The base model will be called CR 929-600. The minor version is CR 929-500. The older version is CR 929-700. It is noted that the Latin letters C and R denote the names of the states participating in the project: C - China, R - Russia.
                        The cooperation agreement was signed in 2014 during the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Beijing.

                        The aircraft model was first demonstrated at the China Airshow-2016 international aerospace show (Zhuhai, November 2016).

                        On September 29, 2017, the ShFDMS project was officially named CR 929.
                        The basic version of the wide-body long-range aircraft will be designated as CR 929-600, the younger version as CR 929-500, and the older version as CR 929-700.

                        CR929-500> 230 seats> 14 km
                        CR929-600> 280 seats> 12 km
                        CR929-700> 320 seats> 10 km
                        At the first stage, the aircraft will receive Western-made engines - either General Electric, or Rolls-Royce. At the second stage, after 2030, it is planned to install the promising Russian PD-35 engine

              So if it is now with Amer’s engines, it’s being tested, and as they say it will undergo certification.
              Then after we finish our engine, do you have to go through the entire test cycle again and re-certify?
              And under our engine, you will have to redo a lot of things ...

                  If an airplane is tested with one engine and written by the testers, Flight Manual, then when installing a different type of engine (it cannot be identical in size, thrust, etc.), a new test cycle is also carried out .... C making changes or additions to the RLE. Or, in general, some sort of additional alphabetic index to the airplane model may be assigned ...

        For the MS-21 test period, American PW 1400G engines were purchased for 4 boards (before the sanctions). Sanctions do not allow further purchases. Therefore, the first 4 sides will fly on these engines, and from 2019 it is planned to install our PD-14 engine on subsequent MS-21 products.

          Indeed, sanctions are for the good. The Americans are hard at helping us revive the domestic engine industry. And without engines, a country cannot be considered an aviation power.
          More sanctions, useful and long-term, keep it up !!!
          And we will again become an advanced industrial power, unless, of course, the sanctions are lifted.

    As life has shown, the most important thing is not even the price, but plastic logistics of the manufacturer’s company and excellent service in technical support. This would also add a flexible credit policy for customers and good leasing conditions. And the plane can be at least 10 once high quality and even economical. But if you do not have your own sales markets and lobbyists, then companies will pass you even with an aircraft of yesterday.

      Aeroflot - 51,17% owned by the Russian Federation. Much more is lobbying when the state has a controlling stake. At the same time, Airbus and Boeing have over 180 aircraft. In the plan for 2020-2026, 169 is expected, but production capacities with the possibility of producing more than 20 aircraft per year are very doubtful.

      In full, no one wants to buy "yesterday." The car is wonderful in every way. And with a new dviglom, it’ll turn out better than competitors:
      MS-21 claims to be in the same commercial niche as the latest Boeing-737 MAX and Airbus A320neo aircraft.
      According to the Irkut corporation, MC-21 has the following advantages over competitors: advanced aerodynamics, the ability to use modern American Pratt & Whitney and Russian PD-14 engines, competitive cost (72-85 million, depending on configuration), increased fuselage diameter ( allowing to expand the passenger compartment and luggage compartments). As a result, the densest MS-21 layout provides for more seats (up to 211!) Than Boeing 737MAX and A320neo. This allows the MC-21 to reduce fuel consumption by almost 1/4 in comparison with other aircraft of the same class, reduce service time at the airport by 20% and increase passenger comfort. The emission of harmful substances into the atmosphere of the MS-21 has been reduced by more than 20% compared to existing analogues. Operating costs for the MS-21 will be reduced by 12-15% compared to aircraft of the current generation and by 6-7% compared to A320neo and Boeing 737 MAX

          According to the plans of the corporation, after 2020, the production of MC-21 aircraft should reach its targets and reach the level of forty planes per year.

          That is, orders for 6-7 years ahead, but not 15 years. hi

        After such a failure in the civil aviation industry, I don’t believe me that there are any “advantages over competitors” there may be prices. Boeing and Airbus did not stop their development for 20 years, and now you want to say that for no reason, we are making another “analogue”? Give up. I'm not talking about the tales of the advanced PD-14, which is supposedly steeper than the American competitor PW, this is definitely not the case. With grief in half, they made the SaM146, which is a very similar copy of the CFM56 with all that it implies, and after this suddenly an engine appears that is "better than prattuitny." Yeah yeah We are waiting for the fables on the PD-35, which suddenly turns out to be cooler than the GE90 and GE9x combined, but for some reason no one wants to buy it.

    Yes, this is an important event. Perhaps the most important thing in all of our civil aviation ... Completely our MODERN aircraft with the latest carbon fiber wing ... With its own engine ... Avionics is also its own. My dream is to fly on this plane. On the "Superjet" flew. Good car ... This one should be better.

    Yes, you can stay at such a pace without planes! They have been building the MC-21 for 10 years. His classmates, planes of this class have been on the market for 15-20 years. We have the last Tu-134 and Tu-154 aircraft manufactured half a century ago. , a glider with American engines. Here, "guard" must be shouted, not "cheers"!
    Therefore, our airlines buy all kinds of junk, they don’t have one, and the new price bites. Yes and MS-21 in the end, they’ll finish it, and they will draw a good price. hi
