Checked by vibration. IL-78М-90А successfully passed ground frequency tests


Tests were conducted by specialists of the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute named after Professor N.E. Zhukovsky commissioned by PAO "Aviation complex named after S.V. Ilyushin ".

The plane was checked by vibration. For this purpose, 78 sensors were installed on the IL-90М-260А, and oscillations were called from the glider's 50 points. The company clarified that the test results will be the basis for the analysis of possible deviations from the norms of operation during the entire service life of the aircraft. They will also maximize the aerodynamic characteristics of the new machine and increase the safety of the flight.

IL-78М-90А will be the first tanker aircraft produced in Russia, before that all IL-78 were assembled in Uzbekistan. The machine 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 supposed to simultaneously refuel four aircraft, reports TASS

      They go on a training U-turn over my fishing spot, if I don’t catch a fish, you can even enjoy the planes in clear weather!

    I hope he will make less noise with new engines, otherwise he’s laden when he flies louder than a thunderclap.

      The video is great!
      Only there are a few points ... Why (why?), The crew (not all, why not all crew members?) In ZS 7 ???
      And why, especially at the most difficult stage, landing, not a crew member in the cockpit, and even behind the pilot’s back ??? I understand that these are civilian testers ... but not to the same extent ....

    The need has long been ripe for these aircraft.
    And then one regiment has seen a lot of tankers in its lifetime throughout Russia, this is not even funny.
