In Ulyanovsk, the second for the year An-124-100 “Ruslan” was restored


According to the report, the BTA An-124-100 Ruslan aircraft was repaired at the Ulyanovsk Aircraft Plant, during which the airworthiness of the aircraft was restored and its life was extended. The aircraft successfully completed the program of ground and flight tests, after which it rose from the airfield and departed to the place of permanent deployment. This is the second Ruslan that underwent repairs in Ulyanovsk this year. The third A-124-100 aircraft is currently undergoing after-sales service and airworthiness restoration and will be handed over to the Air Force by the end of this year.

According to the bmpd blog, the An-124-100 Ruslan military transport aircraft from the 566th Solnechnogorsk Red Banner Military Transport Aviation Regiment of the 12th Mginsky Red Banner Military Transport Regiment was returned to operation at the aircraft factory in Ulyanovsk aviation divisions of the Military Transport Aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces based on Seshcha airfield (Bryansk region). This aircraft was built in Ulyanovsk in 1994 and since 2001 has been in a non-flying condition in the crap at the airfield of deployment.

Today, the Russian Aerospace Forces have the 24 of the An-124 aircraft (as part of the 566 regiment and 224 th LO), of which 12 Ruslanov are in flight condition, taking into account the last restored one. By the end of the year, their number will increase to 13, after the commissioning of the third, repaired An-124-100 for the year.

    Even so, it’s better to repair than not to let it out at all. With engines they wonder what they do? After all, they are probably MotorSich request

      Maybe the analogue of such an aircraft is a lot of control over all stages of production, plus development. Therefore, they repair it ..

        - In the meantime, "Ruslan" today is "VAZ-2101" in aviation, - says Viktor Ilyich Tolmachev (August 11, 1934, Kursk, USSR - June 7, 2018) - Soviet and Russian aircraft designer. One of the creators of the An-124 Ruslan and An-225 Mriya. An-124 (at the time of this statement - technical director of Volga-Dnepr Group)

        Gabriel gave a comparison of the operation of two aircraft available in the airline - An-124-100 and Boeing-747-400 / 8F. Ruslan's transportation costs are 40 percent higher. In a foreign aircraft, the crew is two people, in a domestic one - six. Repair and extension of the engine's life costs $ 2595 per flight hour for Ruslan, and $ 671 for Boeing: a difference of 393 percent. Maintenance and extension of the airframe's life for our car costs 830 dollars, and for the "American" - 420. As a result, the total cost of a flight hour for "Ruslan" is $ 33375, and for Boeing $ 23835. The difference is palpable.

        good
        To revive and develop is all the same in the last few decades.
        Part of the interactive exhibition of the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute named after Professor N.E. Zhukovsky (part of the Research Center "Institute named after N.E. Zhukovsky") at the air show MAKS-2017 became the concept of the new heavy transport aircraft "Elephant".
        The presentation of the capabilities of the aircraft, designed to replace the Soviet heavy long-range transport aircraft An-124 "Ruslan", attracted considerable attention of the guests of the institute's stand. It is expected that the Elephant will be able to carry 150 tons of cargo over distances of up to 7000 km at a cruising speed of 850 km / h based on a runway of 3000 m long. With a maximum payload of 180 tons, the practical flight range will be 4900 km. Such indicators will allow the aircraft to compete not only with the An-124, but also with modern cargo freighter aircraft, the Boeing 747-8F, which carry out the commercial transportation of packaged goods.
        To date, the technical concept of a promising heavy transport aircraft has been developed, its main geometric and mass parameters have been determined, a preliminary calculation of the flight technical and takeoff and landing characteristics of two aircraft variants with different cargo compartment floor widths has been performed.

        In the meantime (July 2018) -
        “Let's look at the success of the Ilyushin firm over the past ten years. The contract for the supply of 38 military transport aircraft to China was disrupted. The delivery of two IL-76MF to Jordan was made with a significant lag behind the schedule. Project IL-214 / MTA failed. The Il-76 production restoration program has gone beyond all possible schedules and estimates. The only aircraft in trial operation shows very low operational reliability, ”said Ruslan Pukhov, member of the Public Council at the Russian Ministry of Defense, director of the CAST (Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies).

        In a whisper, yeah! wassat Only very loud.
        A couple of weeks ago I watched the take-off of one side from a / a Mineralnye Vody. In the beginning, a heart sank: it was painfully slowly gaining altitude and leaving a strong smoke trail, really surging engines ... Only after a couple of seconds I realized that it was Ruslan who again dragged something into the Syria through the Sultanate.

      Rather, "rustle"! It "rustles" somehow ... But I heard it when landing on the runway. We all stood with our mouths open - impressed !!!
      But I'm actually talking about something else:
      This aircraft was built in Ulyanovsk in the 1994 year and since the 2001 year it has been in a non-flying state in the crap at the deployment aerodrome.
      Pancake! And how did he then "get" from Bryansk to Ulyanovsk? Did you walk on foot? Or did you fly by yourself !?
      (Our journalists are doing interesting things! I just want to say: did you try to turn your brains on !?)

    Ah, well done, Ulyanovsk! Let it fly - a beautiful plane! I saw him in Amsterdam and the A380 stood nearby - it’s like IL-76 and An-12. Impressive!

              AN-225 - "it seems like it will be more than A-380." If you compare, so giants. In addition, both AN-124 Ruslan and AN-225 Mriya - 20 years ahead of the "Euro giant" in age ...
