    "Yamal" foreign aircraft to replace the Sukhoi SuperJet-100

    In particular, we plan to make a large order for aircraft Sukhoi SuperJet-100 to within 5-6 years to form one company's fleet.

    The press service said that the Acting Governor Dmitry YANAO Kobylkin discussed the issue with President Vladimir Putin. "At one meeting with the president, I presented the request to include ATK" Yamal "in the list of companies that could get any benefits. I explained what is the reason we have five years to fly imported aircraft, we lease payments - they are in the currency ", - said Kobylkin.

    UAC will develop a family of Sukhoi Superjet

    Ulyanovsk. April 17th. Airports - Public Joint Stock Company "United Aircraft Corporation" (UAC) plans to expand its family of regional aircraft Sukhoi Superjet, said at the Second Congress of the Russian aircraft manufacturers Corporation President Yuri Slusar.

    He noted that it is planned as creating versions with reduced capacity of up to 75 seats, and the number of seats to 130.

    In addition, increasing the competitiveness of the family will contribute to modernization, which is scheduled for 2017-2018 years. During this period, will be held or re-engine, improved aerodynamics, or by the use of the new wing, said Yu.Slyusar.

    Russia and China intend to sell a 100 Sukhoi SuperJets in Asia

    May 8, AEX.ru - In Moscow, signed a framework agreement on the establishment of a leasing company to support sales of the Sukhoi SuperJet 100 (SSJ 100) in China and South-East Asia. This was reported by the press service of the UAC.

    The participants of the quadripartite agreement made by the Russian-Chinese investment fund, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (part of the United Aircraft Corporation), Management Committee of the new area Xixian China (PRC) and the Chinese company New Century International Leasing. The agreement was concluded with the support of the Russian-Chinese intergovernmental commission - said in a statement.

    According to the agreement, within three years the Russian-Chinese leasing company will acquire from JSC "Sukhoi Civil Aircraft" (SCAC) a 100 SSJ 100 aircraft worth about $ 3 billion, which is more than twice the total number of aircraft which are currently delivered to customers.

    "The headquarters of the new leasing company will be located in the territory of the Russian-Chinese industrial park in the city of Xixian, Shaanxi Province, the capital of China's aviation cluster. The city administration will also assist in the provision of land for the creation of the necessary infrastructure for acceptance and servicing of aircraft SSJ 100 "- added the UAC.

    In Egypt, said the interest in SSJ100 for Egypt Air

    " It is a modern aircraft with the technology of international level, relevant certificates of the European Union. We are seriously thinking about acquiring aircraft of this class for the Egyptian national airline. First, we must examine the aircraft, and if we see that it suits us, we will begin to discuss the price . "

    Russian Helicopters signs first contracts for new light Ansat
    Russian Aviaton » Tuesday May 26, 2015 21:55 MSK

    Russian Helicopters (part of State Corporation Rostec) has signed two contracts to supply the modernised light Ansat passenger helicopter manufactured by Kazan Helicopters. Under the agreements, signed at HeliRussia 2015, the first customers for five of the new aircraft will be Tatarstan-based Tulpar Helicopters and Vector Aviation Company.

    “The niche for Russian-built light commercial helicopters was long the preserve of the Soviet Mi-2. Now Russian Helicopters has built the unique modern Ansat, which has numerous competitive advantages over other helicopters its class,” Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev said. “We are pleased that the Ansat has found its first customers, and look forward to expanding our order book for this helicopter with orders from foreign helicopter operators.”

    Tulpar Helicopters will receive three Ansats, with another two aircraft ordered by Vector Aviation Company. Both clients provide services including commercial helicopter and aeroplane flights, service and engineering support for aircraft, helicopter sales and leasing, operational support, design and production of VIP interiors and supplying aviation equipment.

    The modernised Ansat is reliable and simple to operate, can operate in various climates and is suitable for outdoors storage. In December 2014 the Ansat with hydromechanical controls received additional type certification from the Interstate Aviation Committee’s Aviation Register (IAC AR), allowing it to make commercial passenger flights.

    Russian Helicopters has already presented the new Ansat to its traditional markets including countries across the CIS, South-East Asia, Africa and Latin America.

    Ulyanovsk-based aviation plant will manufacture three Tu-204-300 aircraft this year
    Russian Aviaton » Tuesday May 26, 2015 21:38 MSK

    Ulyanovsk-based Aviastar-SP enterprise will continue production of Tu-204-300 aircraft offering an increased range, despite the fact that demand for these jets is very low, Interfax-AVN reports with reference to a source close to Russian military-industrial sector.

    Aviastar continues production of Tu-204-300 jets. This year the plant is going to manufacture two jets of the type for Rossiya special aircraft division and one airliner for a space company,” the source said.

    He reminded that last year Research and Test Cosmonaut Training Center named after Y.A. Gagarin, managed by Roscosmos, issued a tender for delivery of two long-haul single-aisle aircraft. The initial price of this contract was 3,3 billion rubles. It includes all the equipment, ground facilities, spares and tool kits as well as personnel training (pilots and maintenance personnel).

    “The second Tu-204-300 will be delivered to the customer in early 2016,” the source noted. According to him, after retrofitting the jet into a “space” version the airliner will feature a three-zone cabin layout seating 52 passengers. The first cabin zone (for cosmonauts) will be fitted with three swing-out seats and three-seat sofa, the second one – five rooms with three-seat sofas and five seats installed outside the rooms, the third one – four two-seat blocks of business-class seats and nine three-seat blocks of economy class seats. The third zone should be able to convert into a medevac version of the jet fitted by two medical modules.

    New short haul passenger aircraft in development

    In may, scientists at the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute have completed the first stage of the research model promising short-haul aircraft.



    The aircraft is to feature 2 main novelties...

    The first innovation specialists TSAGI is a wing of low sweep, allowing to provide laminar flow, in which there isn't chaotic velocity pulsations and the surface pressure significantly decreases the resistance of the aircraft. The use of modern profiles allowed to keep the same speed as its predecessors — 830-850 km/h.

    The second distinguishing feature of the new aircraft is the location of the engine over the rear edge of the wing - as a noise reduction measure

    Interesting, I wonder if this would be the "new" "not-stretch-of-SSJ" 130-seater I had seen mention of...
    The over-wing engine has many more benefits than just noise reduction, besides facilitating larger fans and short/light landing gear,
    I believe there is also some aerodynamic efficiency benefits, or at least HondaJet touts that about their small bizjet of similar config...

    Curious how this concept/project impacts potential SSJ developments, i.e. re-engine/re-wing/stretch/shrink/etc...
    Plausible that only small changes to SSJ will be pursued in short term (add a few frames, tweak existing engine, easy aero tweaks),
    but hold off on new wing, engine, until new 130-seater is done and it can either be shrunk or those elements "ported" to SSJ...?

    It's not clear whether this is a potential rival for the Superjet or just some tech research which could be applied to the SSJ-100 down the line

    That sort of engine location has been tried on the AN-72 and while found to be efficient in terms of flight and takeoff performance, it makes the engines very hard to service... perhaps a walkway building into the wing structure with access via roof hatches in the fuselage would enable maintainence at airfields not equipped with cranes or raised platforms...

    Not quite sure what you mean by the bolded (were you thinking of roof hatches in the context of high-wing An-72?), that sounds tedious vs. existing over-wing emergency exits, though I wouldn't expect even those would be used because of hassle of entering plane and carrying tools thru, etc.  I just don't think the rough-field maintenance (or even operations) you seem to be imagining are a design factor in ANY civil jetliner of this size nowadays.  

    Nacelle access via step-ladder and standing on wing does seem plausible enough, or else with hydraulically raised  walk-ways... For engine removal I would guess that a standard fork-lift could be trivially adapted, if not a customized hydraulic engine cradle (which are used on larger engines now)  Any location that has qualified staff to work on the engine will have the tools they need as well, so if it is forced to make emergency landing at unprepared field, it will wait for repair team+gear to be delivered, just like the other civil airliners it is meant to compete against...

    Ultimately, where else are they going to get the aerodynamic, ground noise, and fan-size benefits this enables?  Obviously the maintenance procedure will need to be tweaked vs. low-mount engines (likewise for HondaJet), but I hardly see that costing enough to out-weigh the benefits.

    Anyhow, the point about enabling larger fan sizes in this segment of civil airliner obviously points to Geared Turbofan developments...

    The roof hatches were in context of the An-72.

    In terms of this new aircraft they should make clearly marked areas from the fuselage where technicians can walk on the wing so they can walk on the wing around the engine... a major part of the success of the podded engine design used around the world on civilian airliners is their ease of access to the engines... putting them on top of a wing makes access harder... as I said with the example of the An-72... there were plenty of good reasons for putting it there in terms of thrust and lift and drag, but the current development of the An-72 is basically called An-148 and is pretty much just an An-72 with pod mounted engines to ease maintainece access.

    Nacelle access via step-ladder and standing on wing does seem plausible enough, or else with hydraulically raised  walk-ways... For engine removal I would guess that a standard fork-lift could be trivially adapted, if not a customized hydraulic engine cradle (which are used on larger engines now)  Any location that has qualified staff to work on the engine will have the tools they need as well, so if it is forced to make emergency landing at unprepared field, it will wait for repair team+gear to be delivered, just like the other civil airliners it is meant to compete against..

    There are plenty of airfields around the world still where hydraulically raised platforms are simply not available. Being able to access the engines from both sides by being able to walk on the wing is all I was suggesting.

    Ultimately, where else are they going to get the aerodynamic, ground noise, and fan-size benefits this enables?  Obviously the maintenance procedure will need to be tweaked vs. low-mount engines (likewise for HondaJet), but I hardly see that costing enough to out-weigh the benefits.

    I am not saying it can't be done... I expect their experience with the Coaler will be used in the formulation of this design...

    KRET creates avionics for MS-21 airliner together with the Israeli company

    WTF ?


    http://tass.ru/armiya-i-opk/2023130

    MOSCOW, June 5. /TASS/. The specialists of the concern radio-Electronic technologies (KRET, part of rostec) has discussed with Israeli partners from Elbit Systems ("Elbis systems) implementation of joint development of multifunction indicator for the MS-21 airliner, announced on 5 June at the press service of the concern.
    The Israeli side, said KRET, supplies Ulyanovsk instrument design Bureau computing module, which is part of the indicator.
    "The meeting was devoted to debugging of equipment and preparation for the start of mass production of modular avionics segments for the MS-21. It is important to compare notes before the beginning of a new phase of integration of the production, which will begin in June this year", - said the chief designer of the Bureau Alexander Vinogradov.
    The Ulyanovsk enterprise is developing a control system aircraft equipment SOSO-MS-21, a system for measuring air data SIVD-21, as well as indicators and remote controls integrated avionics system, which ensures the creation of a single information-control field of the cockpit.
    In the creation of medium-haul passenger aircraft MS-21 is attended by about 100 Russian and international companies. KRET, in particular, delivers up to 80% of the avionics. It is expected that the first flight of the airliner will make in 2016, and mass production will begin after 2020.

    Boycott the terrorist nation at all costs, period. Not to mention that it is right out hilarious and stupid at the same time to corperate with Israel on Aviation, since all their scientists were mostly from Soviet Union, so russia is corporationg with its own ideas and build up intellectual workforce... reminds me what we are doing here in germany. Bundeswehr builds up facilities and military bases, sells them after few years and then rents the place for decades while paying to private companies millions...that is what that is.

    If the alternative is to cooperate with Europe or the US then I would say cooperating with Israel is fine on civilian aircraft... though that might lead to issues with some potential clients... hopefully there is an all russian Avionics version in that regard....

    If Israeli technology will make the MS-21 more competitive than I'm all for it.

    The Sukhoi Superjet involes a whole bunch of companies from all over Europe, the countries of some of which have worse relations with Russia than Israel has with Russia right now.

    No-one's boycotting or sanctioning the Superjet, although I suspect it's a possibility if things keep going south.
    Therefore it makes sense to weave away from European suppliers and partners, and onto those from other countries.
    Those other countries can include other US allies too; but that Russia has good relations with - such as South Korea, Japan, Turkey, UAE, Jordan and Israel.
