The second flight of the prototype IL-112V may be postponed due to coronavirus

The second flight of the newest light military transport aircraft Il-112V can be postponed due to the situation with the coronavirus, but this will not affect the implementation of the entire program. It is reported by RIA News with reference to an informed source.


The epidemiological situation may adjust the timing of the second flight of the Il-112V, since a special operating mode has been introduced at the enterprise (VASO)

- the agency leads the words of the source.

It is noted that production sites, including those with a continuous cycle, are functioning at the enterprise, and the IL-112V program itself is in a high stage of readiness for continuing flight tests. It was previously reported that the second flight of the first prototype IL-112V is scheduled for April 2020.

Recall that the first flight of a prototype IL-112V, designed for flight testing, took place on March 30 last year. The plane took off and made three flight circles with an imitation of landing.

Light military transport turboprop aircraft Il-112V is created for replacement in the transport aviation An-26 and An-24 aircraft, whose resource will soon be exhausted. The aircraft is the first developed from scratch in Russia, work has been ongoing since 2014. Designed for transportation of military personnel, military equipment, various types of weapons and other goods. The carrying capacity is 5 tons, the flight range is 5 thousand km, the aircraft is able to land and take off from unpaved airfields.

    Now here is a new gorgeous excuse for its mediocrity - coronovirus! So, there are even more reasons to excuse the failure to meet the deadlines for creating technology. ..

    A virus, a virus, but what about the centering of the matter, or will it fly with more than one cargo?

      Regarding the alignment, this is a question for the An-178, here it seems to be about the Il-112, it has its own children's sores.

        Just the Il-112V - same problem! There, almost 1.5 tons of cargo had to be loaded closer to the cabin! True, the designers promised to eliminate this, as well as the "overweight" of the structure. There was information that the structure was lightened (in my opinion by 600 kg) and with the centering, they also seem to decide.

          To whom did the designers promise to fix the alignment problem? The big problem was overweight and all the activities were aimed at solving this issue, in extreme cases, I did not see statements on changing the centering, only weight.
          The rear centering was discussed during the preparations for the first flight and always, along with the issue of overweight aircraft, the subsequent official, publicly announced events were aimed at the issue of weight reduction, without mentioning measures to change the centering.
          Unless of course there is some kind of insider information on this issue, it will be interesting to get acquainted with it, since I can judge by this plane only by what I learn from public sources.

            You can read about this even on this site, in an article by R. Skomorokhov that appeared exactly a year ago (April 9, 2019):
            "... Plus, as the assembly began to turn out unpleasant things. For example, the initial overload of the aircraft is almost three tons. This, by the way, became known in the same 2017.
            At the same time, problems with alignment were revealed. Moreover, both problems existed initially, that is, they were the fruits of design flaws
            .... "
            "... Already at the time of the first flight, it was possible to “remove” one ton of overload from three and work with tail overload...... "

      Afraid that "Ilyusha" will get sick, they are waiting for the arrival of a tank of alcohol to disinfect the aircraft.
      But seriously - they are apparently simply not ready again and are now trying to "save face"

    STRONGLY looks like the situation with diesel-electric submarines "Lada", going for "modernization" after 10 years of trial operation.

    Payload 5t ??? There is no typo ?? With a 5T Mi8, it can calmly take off for itself, which is very small for such a rather big airplane.

      No mistake! Exactly - 5 tons! By the way, the An-24 / An-26 has a lifting capacity of 4.5 to 6.5 tons (depending on version) ....

      =======
      Only on the outside the suspension (and even not all models)! In the cabin - no more than 4 tons. In doing so, you forget about the following things:
      1. Flight range;
      2. Flight speed;
      3. The cost of a ton-kilometer;
      4. The volume of the cargo compartment (important when the load is not heavy, but overall);
      5. The complexity and cost of maintenance;
      6. Intermuscular plaque;
      7. Resource (primarily glider).
      Aircraft have all these indicators much better! request

        I am aware that An 26 tons only this aircraft was developed in the 5.5-50s of the last century !! This plane is being made with an eye to 60-20 years ahead, and we have exactly the same An 30. It turns out that 26 years have passed and there is no increase, sorry but there is a clear design error!

          ============
          Not understood? What "increase are you talking about, Alexei? About greater carrying capacity? Well, there are cars of a different class for that!"
          But there is an increase: the flight range (2 times!) Is greater, fuel consumption is 1.6 times less, the cargo compartment volume is much more .... Noisiness is much less ... What else do you need?

          There are, of course, design errors and shortcomings .... Have you seen MANY airplanes where they WASN'T? So - immediately took off and flew and nothing needs to be modified ....

            God grant that this plane has more pros than cons! It’s only that it took off after as many as 19 years of development, at such a pace it will become obsolete before it has time to get into the troops. And errors in the design of this aircraft are not petty judging because the most important error with alignment is known. This is your trifle? It is impossible to eliminate such an error without redesigning the glider ...

    it seems that this car is already buried, God forbid, in the direction of the newest car, but the question arises which engineers will create personally I’m not a special specialist in military aviation, the mechanic of the Su-15 but I know the history and wrote out a foreign military review we needed such a car the day before yesterday we use Soviet avionics such a feeling under the control of this clique we immediately and very quickly go to the bottom

      Sometimes it’s better to bury one unsuccessful design and start a new design than do endless improvements to the design, realizing that changes lead to an avalanche of the need to change adjacent parts and assemblies. Although this looks like a waste of money, it can be economically justified in the long run.
