The Kremlin became interested in IL-96 aircraft

72
Newspaper Kommersant announces that the management of the Voronezh Aircraft Building Society OJSC announced that it agreed on plans for the production of 14 new IL-96 of various modifications up to 2024 of the year. Orders for them came from various government agencies, and one of the aircraft will be made specifically for Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.


“To date, plans have been agreed and signed for the production of new Il-96 aircraft of various versions for government customers. These aircraft will be built by us, at the Voronezh aircraft factory. It is assumed that in the period from 2014 to 2024, the year of the whole will be produced and handed over to 14 customers of this type of aircraft in passenger versions with different layouts of the passenger cabin, as well as in special versions, ”said VASO General Director Sergey Yurasov.

According to Yurasov, the plan for the production of IL-96 is “quite ambitious,” but the plant’s specialists “carefully, at all levels, analyzed the possible risks.” At the moment, "the recruitment of personnel, primarily of the main production workers, is actively underway."

        Moreover, if you redesign the project, apply modern avionics, engines, materials. It will turn out a chic airplane in general, probably it will even be quite competitive (in terms of fuel economy and cost of flight hours) with a Boeing and Airbus.

            Shoigu needs to fly not on the IL-96, but on the Tu-160, make a passenger modification and let it fly.

          And most importantly, four engines, not two like some competitors. It is safer and gliders have always been more reliable and stronger.
          I would order them at the place of the state and buy them, and I would lease and lease them to airlines and thereby compete with foreign aircraft and boost my economy. Its closer to the body. So much for investment in industry and jobs, and living standards and independence. Long-term projects quite normally pay for themselves all the more so in our time when instability throughout the world.
          It would be better if we were sanctioned to ban the sale of used aircraft from the West.

      Here is someone who thinks, but maybe it’s worth cooperating with the Chinese. they may well manage electronics and maybe some other components: interior, chairs, etc. several problems are solved.
      1. the plane is better and cheaper
      2. there will be an opportunity to enter the Chinese market with wide-body aircraft (the Chinese support their manufacturer more than airbus and Boeing)
      3. The Chinese market itself is more developing, therefore, there will be large orders for aircraft of this dimension, if this market is occupied, as a big blow to the airbus and Boeing, if the Chinese themselves begin to produce without the cooperation of Ila

        The Chinese are unlikely to invest for a number of reasons. Firstly, they have no experience in the production of modern machines, in fact, as well as complex electronics. The second one. The domestic market of Russia and China will purchase such aircraft only from under a stick - we have neither modern engines, nor, in general, avionics, which is usual in world practice, nor a service system.
        Therefore, such a machine can be made as a commercial project (and it will cost a lot) only with the help of state financing. And there is so little money. For narrow tasks, such as government transportation and a platform for the military, the existing IL-96 is quite suitable.

      So, I also thought that they would recruit employees, train, set up a line, apparently introduce changes to the project (electronics, possibly partially into engines and gliders ..), and re-establish contacts with snowfields. This, I think, will take a decent time. This machine has not been produced for a long time. As a result, after that they will start and build, just about 1,5 aircraft a year will be released.

    Correct solution. First, our government must fly our planes. Secondly, if we do not build wide-body aircraft, then after 3-4 years we will lose both the qualifications and suppliers for this type of airliners. This must not be allowed. In general, of course, we need a new model, with 2 engines. Well, or while upgrading the 96th in terms of engines and control systems, as was done with the 76th.

      All IL-96 aircraft currently flying in Aeroflot were assembled in the first half of the 1990. In exchange for reducing import duties on foreign equipment, Aeroflot pledged to purchase an additional batch of IL – 96, but the deal did not take place, although the duties were reduced.

      In 2005 – 2006, three Il – 96 – 300 were delivered to Cuba, including one to serve the president of Cuba. In 2009, the Venezuelan government signed a contract for the supply of two Il-96-300 - one for passenger, the other for VIP-transportation. In the fall of 2008, the IFC leasing corporation seized two Il-96-300 from Krasnoyarsk Airlines due to the company's insolvency.

      In 2009, the flight airline began operating the Il – 96 – 400T cargo planes, which Aeroflot initially planned to buy, but subsequently abandoned them. As of September of the 2009 of the year, there are three IL-96-400Т airlines in the airline with a plan to receive three more aircraft in the 2010 year.

      Commercial operation of the aircraft began on July 14 on the 1993 of the year on the Moscow – New York route. At first, the plane was used on mainly foreign flights: to Singapore, Las Palmas, New York, Tel Aviv, Palma de Mallorca, Tokyo, Bangkok, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos– Aires, Seoul, Sao Paulo, Havana, Hanoi, Santiago, Limu.

        According to the registry in operation are
        8 cars in service of the Russian government and 3 in Cubans. Another is at the disposal of Ilyushin Design Bureau.

        The Polyot company decommissioned trucks of this type in the summer of 2013. Aeroflot began the process of decommissioning its Il-96s last year and completed their decommissioning on March 30 this year. However, there may be more buyers on them.

        I am aware, as well as aware of how Aeroflot threw the IL96 manufacturer, abandoning it, while receiving discounts on duties. They abandoned the aircraft, but they capitalized on the reduction of duties. the IL96 crews were paid less than the crews of foreign aircraft.
        IL96 in a number of indicators surpasses its Western counterparts, it is safer and more stable in flight.
        It’s time to introduce duties and taxes on boenges and airbuses,
        so that companies buy modernized IL96, Tu204, Tu334 and our other aircraft. stop buying foreign trash already.

          Well, what about safer (and what is stable) I would not say so clearly. The machine is clearly and very outdated. Moreover, there is clearly no money for the new project, and the old one will suit the military. 11 cars out of 14 will go to them. Maybe before IL-96 the prospect of a tanker and the CPSU will open.

            The pilots say that where the boengi bursts like a fig knows what, il96 flies "like on rails." It may be a bit old, but if you slightly modify its latest modification, it will not be inferior to anything, and you can make any cabin for passengers according to the client's order.

              I don’t know what the pilots say, I have never heard of any special “stability” of the Il-86 and its “long-range” brother. The car is already outdated in all respects - and the "board" is old (and even little-known in the world), 4 not the best engines (although you need two powerful ones, but where do you get them), an outdated airframe with zero composite content. I agree one thing - in fact, you can make any salon.
              All this puts an end to (or rather, has long been put) on the machine as a commercial one, even if it is "slightly modified", but in fact, almost everything is altered. Will we only drive all carriers with a stick? A stick in a capitalist state should be used carefully, you can break everything. It is a pity for the people and the plant - that is why orders from the military will not die of hunger. In the meantime, engage in "live" projects, like the same MS-21.

    it is necessary to bend Aeroflot, etc. to order it!

      Aeroflot only wrote them off. 4-engine cars are not profitable.

    even if it would be done and that’s good
    what is it really a sin to hide, I thought I had already buried the 96th

    Our planes have always been the best, and the fact that they are scolded (passenger) is not the design bureau's fault, but there was such a state order. And now (apparently for good kickbacks) they bought Boeing and other stuff that flew out all possible resources. We have IL, there are technical specifications, so they need to be built and used, and air traffic is simply prohibited from purchasing.

    Is it really clear-sighted? Maybe the Kremlin will also be interested in Carcasses? How much can the air industry be destroyed by all kinds of people?
