    Rogozin is the Russian power-brokers and leading figures' pet troll.

    They certainly see the value of keeping him around.

    To be fair to him - he does give a good dressing down to the companies that fail to perform to standard - which is a fairly important role.

    looks modest. 240 months thats less then 5 per month on average , airbus manufacture 30 per month of that type of plane.

    The flight testing of new Russian MS-21 aircraft will be started next year
    Russian Aviaton » Tuesday March 31, 2015 14:18 MSK

    The flight testing of new Russian MS-21 aircraft will be started in 2016, President of Irkut Corporation, Oleg Demchenko, told i-Mash at LIMA-2015 show.

    “This year we will complete assembly of the first prototype. In 2016 we are going to start the flight testing,” Demchenko said. According to the CEO “MS-21 program is on schedule and we are doing our best to preserve it”.

    “The major problem in the network of MS-21 program is the “black wing” (wing made of composites), - Demchenko said. – These are the brand-new technologies for Russian aircraft industry. Our country has never used them before. The road is long, but I think we are going to make it”.

    MS-21 aircraft will replace Tu-154 and Tu-134 jets. Irkut Corporation is assembling the jet. Three versions of MS-21 seating 150, 180 and 212 passengers will be manufactured.

    Irkut Corporation believes that the liner will outmatch Boeing and Airbus aircraft of the same class in terms of aircraft performance; it will be put into operation in 2017.

    Russia-China passenger plane project estimated at $1.4 bln — vice-premier

    MOSCOW, April 7. /TASS/. The project of developing a Russian-Chinese wide-body passenger plane estimated at no less than 80 billion rubles ($1.4 billion) remains a priority, even if it has received no budget financing for 2015, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday.

    "We’re not in any case revising it and it is within our sight and in our specific plans," Rogozin said in an interview with TASS news agency.

    "We’re now determining a group of participants to develop this most technical project with a choice to be made between Ilyushin and Tupolev [aircraft design bureaus]. But generally, the technical outline of the plane is already known," the vice-premier said.

    Loans from Russia’s national development bank Vnesheconombank (VEB) may be raised to finance the project, he said.

    "We’ll finance expenditures related to the project. But these will not necessarily be budget money. We can take out loans from VEB, for example, as soon as we switch to this project’s practical implementation," Rogozin said.

    "The most important thing for us is to determine the understanding of Chinese partners about this plane’s flying range. We should reach clear understanding by the end of the year about what we’re creating," the vice-premier said.

    China needs an intermediate range of about 4,000-5,000 kilometers (2,485-3,100 miles) while Russia needs a long-range plane, Rogozin said.

    "We don’t have such a large population and we don’t need a jumbo jet to carry a thousand people across the entire territory of Russia. The Chinese, on the contrary, need a large passenger but medium-haul plane. That is, we now need to find a consensus," the Russian vice-premier said.

    Rogozin didn’t rule out that Russia might agree to the Chinese project or it would be tailored to Russian needs, for example, by installing other engines.

    The Russian government planned to allocate 1.4 billion rubles ($24.5 million) from the federal budget and 2.5 billion rubles (about $44 million) from extra-budgetary sources for the Plane-2020 project in 2015.

    However, a proposal was later made to stop the project's financing from the federal budget. At the same time, Russia’s United Aircraft Building Corporation announced in January 2015 about several purchases under the Plane-2020 project.

    The plane, which is being developed on a parity financing basis with China’s aircraft-building industry, is expected to be built in 2021.

    "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.

    Is anybody familiar with the current situation of Russian cooperation with Antonov re: An-148?
    Antonov is now announcing they are launching An-178 (cargo ramp version) with (Azeri) Silk Way Airlines as 1st customer.
    Would An-178 depend on Russian cooperation, or is Antonov trying to replace those suppliers somehow?

    According to the Antonov rep at a recent show, cooperation on civilian projects is still on-going....but he was saying he was hopeful it would not be affected by political decissions.

    However, there is sceptism regarding the capacity of Antonov to serially produce any aircraft under current conditions....they were struggling to do that even before the start of the war

    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...?

    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...
