The crew of the IL-76TD-90VD made the first landing on the ice airfield of Novolazarevskaya station in Antarctica, reports MIC with reference to the press service of the company "IL". Flight tests were conducted jointly with the State Research Institute of Civil Aviation and Volga-Dnepr Company.


In Antarctica, the IL-76TD-90ВД landed on the ice airfield for the first time.


“The joint crew under the command of the chief pilot of the Aviation Complex named after S.V. Ilyushin, Hero of Russia N.D. Kuimova and chief pilot of the State Research Institute of Civil Aviation Hero of Russia RT Yesayan successfully completed the first landing of the Il-76TD-90VD aircraft at the ice airfield of Novolazarevskaya station in Antarctica. For the first time, an IL-76 aircraft equipped with PS-90A-76 engines landed on the ice, - said in a release.

It is noted that "the tests carried out will make it possible to supplement the manual on the flight operation of airplanes equipped with this type of engine, in part of the possibility of landing on snow-covered ice airfields."

    For the first time an aircraft of the Il-76 type, equipped with PS-90A-76 engines, landed on ice

    It’s a heavy plane, it’s so difficult to land it, apparently the risks were calculated very well.

      This is good news, there is not enough information ... I think he sat down in a lightweight version (tests will continue in different modes), how long the strip works and the difficulties in maintaining it. Success, this is our region and there are many of our interests.

        Information from the source. A great alternative to Boeing and Airbus. Import substitution. I wholeheartedly root for our industry, I wish that money would not flow out of the country, the country possessed the most modern technologies, and my children and grandchildren always had high-tech work. Which I wish you too.

              Yes, probably, they will no longer install PS-90, but something from the PD-14 series, although ... our country is unpredictable ... But whether a / c will want to buy domestic cars is a question. I'm afraid that without a shout from above - no. The fact is that used planes are cheaper, and the entire ground service has long been tailored for "bobby" and "watermelons", and re-create after-sales ...

            So it is necessary to force at the legislative level, for example, 70% of our 30% imports, or in a different ratio at the beginning before the increase in production. angry

          The question is in the money. Western companies give out their planes almost for free, at low interest rates. Our difficulties are that banks cannot provide a low interest rate. The whole business rests precisely on this and not on specific technical characteristics and the final price of the products. As everything is thought out by them, there is no way for us to flurry here.

      Yuri Grigoryevich, you need to find and read Guidelines for the provision of airfield flights of IL-76 aircraft to Antarctica at st. "Youth" and "Novolazarevskaya"where the technical regulation of flight operations is described. The general state of affairs is as follows:
      A new level of economic development of the country at the beginning of the XXI century allowed expanding the volume of expeditionary activity. The number of seasonal and wintering teams has been increased to 120 and 110 people, respectively; the number of year-round operating stations remained - 5 (Mirny, Vostok, Progress, Novolazarevskaya, Bellingshausen); the number of seasonal field bases increased to 5 against 2 in 1997, the Russian, Leningrad and Union were added to Molodezhnaya and Druzhnaya-4; the number of expedition ships remained the same (R / V “Akademik Fedorov” - AARI of Roshydromet and R / V “Akademik Alexander Karpinsky” - FGUNPP PMGE Rosnedr); the number of expeditionary aircraft has changed: instead of 2 helicopters and 2 planes, it was proposed to use 2 helicopters, 2 aircraft on a ski-wheeled chassis and the IL-76TD transport aircraft for intercontinental flights; for the first time, the need to build and operate four snow-ice runways in Antarctica was declared, while in 1997 they were not mentioned.
      ... (here I missed the information on shipping and geodesy, completely http://www.aari.ru/misc/publicat/paa/PAA-84/53-66.pdf
      Modern aviation support for RAE transportation operations is carried out using intercontinental flights of the Il-76TD aircraft from Cape Town (South Africa) to the snow-ice runway (runway) of Novolazarevskaya station and vice versa. The runway of Novolazarevskaya station has a valid operating certificate issued by the Federal Air Transport Agency in coordination with the Federal Air Transport Agency during the annual expert assessments of the status of the runway and aerodrome equipment. Intracontinental flights between the Russian Bellingshausen, Novolazarevskaya, Progress and Vostok stations are provided by an American-made BT-67 aircraft on a ski-wheeled chassis owned by a Canadian airline. All flights are carried out within the framework of the international aviation program DROMLAN, which is organized by the national Antarctic programs of Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, India, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Finland, Sweden, South Africa and Japan, which have launched their activities in the Queen Maud Land and adjacent areas . Flights under this program are conducted on a cooperative basis, taking into account the requests of each of the national programs for the required volumes of air transportation of passengers and cargo every summer Antarctic season. The air operator of this program in agreement with all
      Its participants were ALCI, Cape Town (South Africa).

      Landing speed is little dependent on traction. The increase in traction is necessary for TAKEOFF ... The separation speed is the same, plus the margin of the strip for the interrupted take-off, something like that, in a nutshell ...

        In principle, an increase in traction helps to increase reverse thrust, i.e. reverse. And this is a decrease in the length of the run despite the fact that the restrictions on the speed of using the reverse in connection with the snow-ice surface of the runway can be significantly lower.

    It is gratifying, of course, that there are such plans for the production of aircraft, however, I did not see any specifics for passenger wide-body vehicles. The capacity of our market for such aircraft is not very large; it will be very difficult to make production profitable without sales abroad. In principle, if you compete with the 767/777, then you cannot do without any additional measures from the state to support these aircraft. But this will definitely affect the ticket price. In my opinion, cooperation with China to create a large aircraft is possible and a way out. Here's another thing, our equipment is very far behind in the intervals between maintenance visits, our intervals are much shorter. We are lagging behind in the availability of spare parts and, in general, in after-sales service. You see, in the West this is a whole system that has been worked out over the years. It is no secret that airlines do not buy aircraft, but lease them. And if you took the plane, then in order to recoup the lease payments, you have to drive it in the tail and in the mane. Any unplanned downtime of the aircraft can knock the airline off the schedule for a long time. The lessor does not care whether the plane costs or flies; he still has to pay money. In our country, for example, if the engine or the APU is out of order, the whole pipe is the case, put the plane to the fence and wait until it is repaired, or more often, remove it from another. And if you take a Boeing, for example, 737, the overhaul life of the chassis is 19000 landings, after which the racks must be sent for repair. So, in this case, there are leasing companies that lease replacement "legs" for 1,5 - 2 months while yours are under repair. It's the same with engines. That is, everything is geared towards minimal downtime. Again, any spare part can be delivered in the shortest possible time. The manufacturer is in touch with the operator around the clock.
