Construction of Il-76MD-90 production aircraft is gaining momentum

43
On November 21, the Start newspaper, the factory publication of the Aviastar-SP aircraft manufacturing enterprise (Ulyanovsk), published new information on the progress of the IL-76MD-90А project. Thus, the construction of the first production aircraft of the new model is currently being completed. Factory workers built a glider, installed a number of systems, and should soon begin checking equipment. In the near future, the Il-76MD-90А military transport aircraft with the serial number 01-03 will depart for the flight test station.




After the 01-03 aircraft leaves the assembly shop of the plant, it will be replaced by the next machine with the number 01-04. According to the newspaper "Start", at the end of November, employees of the plant "Aviastar-SP" were engaged in docking airframe units, as well as mounted components of the fuel system, cockpit glazing, etc. Soon the 01-04 glider will be tested for air tightness, after which the installation of various systems will continue. The aircraft with the serial number 01-05 exists only in the form of a few units that have yet to dock. Already assembled fuselage and wings. The last are tested for tightness by fuel. All necessary equipment is installed on the wings.

At different stages of construction are now 10 Il-76MD-90А. All work is proceeding on schedule, which becomes a reason for optimism. The newspaper “Start” cites the words of the shop manager No. XXUMX, where the final assembly of the aircraft, R. Khambekov, is underway. According to him, the simultaneous work immediately on 300 aircraft suggests that "the stage of mass production of IL-10MD-79A becomes an obvious reality."

Indeed, the pace of work on the IL-76MD-90A project, gathered recently, allows us to draw the most daring conclusions. The first prototype of a promising military transport vehicle took off on September 22, 2012, and a little more than a year later 10 different aircraft of this model are at different stages of construction. All this, as well as a number of the latter News, says that the first flight of an experimental aircraft served as a powerful impetus to the intensification of work on the project.



The IL-76MD-90А project started in the middle of the last decade. The reasons for which he appeared were the desire of the Air Force to get a new military transport aircraft, as well as the need to transfer the production of IL-76 vehicles to Russian enterprises. Previously, the IL-76 transport aircraft of several modifications were made in Tashkent, but after the collapse of the Soviet Union this became the source of a number of problems. In the end, it was decided to start building new aircraft in Ulyanovsk.

The decision of the Russian government to begin the development of the project for the modernization of the IL-76 aircraft was issued in December 2006. Almost three years later, in November of 2009, the United Aircraft Building Corporation and the Ministry of Industry signed a contract to carry out work on an upgraded version of the “476 product”. Probably, this designation led to the appearance of an alternative name for the aircraft - Il-476, which, however, does not appear in official documents. Shortly after the agreement was signed between UAC and the Ministry of Industry, construction began on two gliders with serial numbers 01-01 and 01-02. The first of these, in October 2011, was transferred to TsAGI for static testing. The 01-02 glider, in turn, was equipped with engines, radio-electronic equipment, etc., and became the first aircraft. 15 December 2011 of the year took place rolling out the aircraft 01-02 from the shop of the plant "Aviastar-SP".

Inspection of the onboard systems and equipment showed that the prototype was not yet ready for testing, as a result of which it was returned to the workshop. The re-rollout took place on 5 July 2012 of the year, and by the end of August all the work on debugging new systems was completed. According to the company "Ilyushin", delaying the work on the project was associated with new digital systems, which had to spend several months on refining. As a result of all the problems and their elimination, the first flight of the 01-02 aircraft, previously planned for the end of 2011, took place only on September 22 of the 2012.



The first flight of the prototype IL-76MD-90А lasted about 40 minutes and passed in normal mode. The crew of the test pilot of the Hero of Russia N. Kuimov flew around the car and did not reveal any problems. October 4 test flight took place in the presence of representatives of the country's leadership. In early October, the Ministry of Defense and the United Aircraft Building Corporation signed a contract according to which until the 2018, the Air Force will receive the 39 of the new IL-76MD-90А military transport aircraft.

29 January 2013, an experienced IL-76MD-90A made the first long flight lasting over four hours. In mid-March, flights began as part of testing under the program of the Ministry of Defense. In July of this year, UAC ordered the PS-156-90 engines from the 76 United Engine Corporation. Engines worth more than 30 billions of rubles will be installed on 39 aircraft for the Ministry of Defense. The first four engines for the IL-76MD-90А aircraft were transferred at the end of August.

In early August, new information appeared on the required number of new aircraft. The total air force demand is estimated at the level of 100 aircraft in transport and other modifications. It is already known about the development of an aircraft tanker based on the IL-76MD-90A. Probably in the future there will be new modifications.

According to some reports, the test program of the first flight of the IL-76MD-90A will be completed over the next few months. This should be followed by registration of all necessary documents. Thus, the first production aircraft of the new model can be transferred to the customer at the beginning of 2015, or even earlier.

        The management of the plant, directly applied to GDP with the possibility of granting Russian citizenship to specialists from Tashkent, according to an accelerated scheme. It seems that the conversation was about three dozen people, plus families. And the factory provided housing.

    "The first prototype of a promising military transport vehicle took off on September 22, 2012, and a little more than a year later, 10 aircraft of this model are at different stages of construction" ...... good news and the pace of construction is also impressive. Let's hope that everyone will bring to the end and renew the fleet of aging transport workers.

    It is good that the pace of new aircraft production is growing, although it is still far from the Soviet pace. And yet, why such long names? Why not leave the IL-476 already in use? How we love to complicate things!

    Several remote control panels with toggle switches bring back the nostalgia of the 70s of the last century. Here, the aircraft designers from "cabins" and "avionists" did not show up. Modern electronic systems use button panels with LED indication, or "keyboard" with a display. Well, at least like in a superjet:

      These are not toggle switches, but AZR (an automatic circuit breaker for breaking the network, it is also called with a trip) that performs certain functions, and the design has nothing to do with it.

          Here is the answer to your question, the first requirement for the cockpit fittings is its "distinctness", since sometimes you have to work blindly, with gloves, VKK, and what do you think is more convenient? The first option or the extreme?

          On modern airplanes there are either AZR or AZP, but the appearance remains the same (in the sense that the "screw" always sticks out). Why? Sasha answered you very clearly.
          And even more so, imagine that the panel is behind you, and you are "tied to a chair ... how will you try to turn it off?

    Definitely, it is better "a tit in the hands than a pie in the sky ...". Updating and scheduled work is just great news for the factory workers. It remains only to subtract the "nomenclature" of cargoes from the Ministry of Defense so that the return from these transport workers would be precisely for the purposes of the Ministry of Defense, and not for the "rags"

      What can you know how many TAPOiCh aircraft did !!! If you do not know, do not write !!! In the USSR, TAPOiCh did 10 planes in 2 months. Do you know that all of these planes of the Ulyanovsk plant have TAPOiCh-chassis units, wing mechanization, all rudders, etc. And could the Ulyanovsk plant without TAPOiCH so quickly raise its first IL-76? No!!! Good luck to them, and planes fly and praise Russia !!!

        Good morning ! Don't be so aggressive) I wrote what I saw myself. How the IL-76 stood at the gate and how they took it to Tuzel, maybe they missed the night "shipments." But I figured out no more than 10 times a year. I remember the little white ones with Arabic script .How are things at the plant now? How is it in Toshkent? ) It is very interesting to learn first-hand)

        IL-76MD-90A, aka IL-476 is the same obsolete IL-76, only with PS-90A engines. A transport aircraft with a narrow cargo compartment is nothing more than an anachronism. Especially in the BTA, where a quick transfer of equipment of rather large dimensions is required. It is enough to compare the width of the T-90 tank - 3780mm. and the width of the cargo compartment of the IL-476 - 3450mm. to understand that it is not suitable for transporting tanks. Not to mention helicopters.
        Cargo compartment dimensions length / width / height, m:
        IL-476 - 24,54 / 3,45 / 3,4
        S-17 - 27,3 / 5,49 / 4,50 (under the wing 3,76)
        An-70 - 22,4 / 4,8 / 4,1
        Airbus A400M - 17,7 / 4,0 / 3,8
        It is not difficult to notice that the IL-476, being in the weight category between the An-70 and S-17, is noticeably inferior to the latter in the dimensions of the cargo compartment.

    Aviastar can only wish success in the construction of this type of aircraft. AND WISH that the GAO TAPOiCh factories, where 50000 workers worked, its branches Fergana Mechanical Plant, where 18000 workers worked, could not be engaged in these works. Andijan Mechanical Plant, where about 12000 workers worked. As for the modernized aircraft, the control panel for the BS and the BG reset at the navigator could be installed in a more modern way. After all, the main purpose of this aircraft is still landing.

    during the USSR there was a very large line of transport aircraft, mainly AN-s.
    What is preparing for them to replace, if you do not take into account the long-suffering AN-70?

    but the news is still good.
    whatever they were talking about the obsolete IL-76, no matter how they were compared with bourgeois counterparts, transport workers didn’t do anything on the territory of Russia (I could be wrong about Ruslan)

    Somehow on "Hallo" I plugged the vacuum cleaner into the wrong outlet, sparked, the technicians were swearing, I was thinking goodbye, the room, I had just paid off the loan. The electrician grandfather made me feel the sticking pin on the whole "block" of fuses in the dark cabin and replace the one with the pin sticks out. I was surprised then that there was really no protection from the fool.
    Glad to produce 476, although this is just a modernization.
