Flight tests of the modernized An-2-100 aircraft with the new engine will begin before the end of July

Flight tests of the modernized An-2-100 aircraft with the new engine will begin before the end of July, the aircraft itself is already at the Svyatoshino airfield (front Kiev).

“We have to“ fly up ”in July and plan to do some 60 flights by September. The engine is different there, the centering is different, etc. We need another test program, ”said V. Boguslaev to Interfax-AVN at the 36 meeting of the Interstate Coordinating Council for Cooperation in the Field of Aviation Engine Development, which was held in Zaporozhye. He added that the aircraft with the new engine will be presented at the MAKS-2013 air show, which will be held in late August in Zhukovsky near Moscow.

Earlier, V. Boguslaev said that this machine would be two times cheaper than the An-3 aircraft created as a result of a deep modernization. “Our plane will cost up to a million dollars. And most importantly, by purchasing documentation from the Antonov ASTC, any aircraft repair plant can repair the An-2, improve its performance without additional certification, ”said V. Boguslaev.

“Today in Russia there are more than 5 thousand An-2 aircraft. A significant part of them can be upgraded to the An-2-100 version, ”said V. Boguslaev.

He said that the MC-14 engine was created for this aircraft. “Such an aircraft is needed not only in Russia, but also in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and other countries,” said V. Boguslaev.

According to him, the new machine will have a great resource - four thousand hours. It is unpretentious in maintenance, repair and indispensable for operation in the North.

    With such a price the plane can "shoot", but for mass private use it is necessary to change the entire system of flights in the country.

    The MS-14 engines are designed together with the AB-17 or AB-36 propeller for aircraft of local airlines with a passenger capacity of up to 30 people. It is possible to use the engine on An-3, An-38 and Be-132MK aircraft.
    A high level of design and production made it possible to create engines with high performance, reliability and a long resource.
    Engines meet the requirements of the Aviation Rules AP-33.

        No, there amerskre was driven by Honeywel TPE331-12U (although, I wanted our engines to be installed, let the TVD-20 or MS-14 be brought to the desired characteristics)

    The first flight of the An-2 took place in 1947. And he is not going to leave the stage. Successful design. As a child, I flew such "to the village".

    Russia needs to focus on its own options for modernizing the An-2, taking into account the fleet of cars, this is a very decent number of jobs, only this magnificent car needs to be modernized so that it does not work "as always" (c) hi
