    Copied from Austins post in the Russian economy thread.

    "Aeroflot" is working on contracts for 20 SSJ100 aircraft and 50 ships MS-21
    https://ria.ru/economy/20160929/1478142411.html


    Novo-Ogaryovo, September 29 -. RIA Novosti / Prime "Aeroflot" is working on contracts for the supply of additional 20 aircraft Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) and 50 vessels MS-21, the general director Vitaly Savelyev airlines.

    "We are now at the stage of elaboration of the contract for an additional 20 machines Sukhoi Superjet and working on a contract for the machine MC-21, 50 cars," - said Savelyev at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
    He noted that the supply of SSJ100 is expected in 2017-2018. "We're going to get 20 cars for 2017 and 2018, and now we are discussing on time," - said the head of Russia's largest air carrier.
    As of July 31, 2016 "Aeroflot" operated 172 aircraft, most of the ships make the Airbus A320, Airbus A330 and the Sukhoi SuperJet 100. Russian regional jets of the new generation Sukhoi SuperJet 100 airline received in June 2011 (in the framework of a solid order 30 Sukhoi SuperJet 100 aircraft).
    Also, the airline "Aeroflot" group of operators will be the first of a new medium-haul passenger airliner MS-21-300.

    Good news.
    I was having a look at the Aeroflot fleet. With the SSJ, the prospective SSJ130, and the MS-21, Russia has the ability, within the next few years, to replace the Airbus and Boeing medium haul fleet they currently operate.
    That would just leave the larger long haul fleet, also Boeing and Airbus airframes that need to be looked at.
    It is within this context, and the disgraceful open threats of unleashing terrorism by the US State Dept, that put restarting a re-engined Il-96 programme, and the follow-on long haul airliner to be co-developed with China, firmly into context.

    I was thinking, could the USA and its vassals restrict Russian made passenger planes from their territory by citing safety standard concerns?? Like they could argue Russian built planes does not meet this or that and all other made up BS claims simply to sabotage the Russians

    SSJ is certified by the FAA and EASA, so they would need to revoke the certificate first. Then, many Western (US, Europe) companies are involved in the project, either providing parts or services (like Boeing works with technical support outside Russia), so it may go against their economical interests. The same goes for the MS-21, though in this case the participation of Western suppliers will be smaller and there will be a fully Russian version.

    With the kind of sanctions West has imposed on Russia , I still wonder why any Russian Airline is allowed to make a new deal to buy Boeing or Airbus ....instead of SSJ-100 or IL-96 or MS-21.

    They should just impose a blanket ban on any new aircraft deal with west and just allow spares maintenance to existing aircraft and let local manufacture sell the types they make.

    Why should Russia allow Boeing and Airbus make profit at the cost of Russian Tax Payer when the same Tax Payer are suppose to face sanctions from West in different ways beats me.

    well il-96 is complicated , saw one looong ago and compared to other planes close by it looked kinda short and stubby .
    now , today engines have huuuge bypass air , and large thrust, 1 engine has thrust like 2 older ones from 70s , yet using only 50% more fuel. and they are much more safer , reliable and self-diagnostic...
    so its not looking good for 4 engine planes.

    IL-96's airframe was originally designed to be IL-96-400 style - same capacity as IL-86, 350 passanger, but longer range... Since USSR at that time didn't have its own engine of adequate thrust, they shortened the aircraft ,reduced maximum takeoff weight , resulting in oversized fuselage and wings for the capacity, and killing the economics.

    It's really like A340-200 vs A340-300 - the latter had some success, while the former isn't much more successful than IL-96...
    if Ilyushin at the time had the right engine and went for the original design, the model would have had more chance.

    so now they talk about building IL-96t in passanger version and new high economy engines ,. so who knows.

    I pinched this from the Russian Economy thread, posted by GunshipDemocracy.
    It is about time moves toward this was made. Don't turn the tap off completely, as it is always worth having some foreign aircraft around, even if only to use as a comparison or foood for thought. But it really is high time proper support for local producers was given, particularly from state owned companies.
    It is a first step in the right direction at least.

    In Russia, want to limit the purchase of foreign aircraft

    https://rg.ru/2016/10/25/v-rossii-mogut-ogranichit-pokupku-inostrannyh-samoletov.html


    Russian state-owned companies to buy foreign aircraft only in consultation with the Government Commission on import substitution. This bill has prepared Ministry of economic development. The changes would encourage carriers to purchase domestic ships.
    See also

    Changes to the Federal law N 223-FZ, which regulates public procurement. If the share of state participation in the state-owned company exceeds 50 percent, buy foreign aircraft worth over one billion roubles it is possible only by agreement with the Government Commission on import substitution.

    "If the equipment with similar characteristics produced in Russia, the state will block the purchase of foreign aircraft. But if anywhere in the Russian market, the company will receive a single permit under each contract without problems", - says Roman Gusarov, chief editor of the portal Avia.ru.

    Now the bill is in the process of regulatory impact assessment. The document applies not only to aviation and marine equipment.

    "Airline with state participation in the first recall of "Aeroflot", but there are regional airlines", - said Roman Gusarov. In addition, the effect of the bill will apply not only to carriers. Private aircraft often have large state-owned corporations, including mining companies. They use airplanes and helicopters for the delivery of shift workers and other staff to remote locations of the mining, processing and production.

    Planes in Russia buy even banks with state participation, and then transfer them to airlines rent
    The expert notes that it is not always the buyer of the aircraft serves the airline. "Our state-owned banks acquired in the time planes, passing them to subsequent airlines in leasing," he says. Roman Gusarov says that the airlines use, but not always aware of the planes.

    In this case, through the harmonization will have to go to both parties - the lessor and lessee. Since the restriction applies not only to buy aircraft but also of services, including rental and leasing of aircraft.


    The amendments do not have such a decisive role, what they are given, says Roman Gusarov. The Board of Directors of state companies there are always representatives of the state. And without regard to state interests, decisions in such companies are not accepted. But the document prescribes common rules for how companies must do when buying foreign technology.

    By the way, incentives are and the rules on granting subsidies for air transport, which are provided to the operating Russian aircraft companies.

    Price bracket a billion rubles are not high for the aviation market. "Under this rule includes all mainline planes except for that small, used on regional transportation," says Gusarov.

    At the same time, today the Russian aviation industry can not fully meet the interests of the airlines. From new models launched in the series, a serious competition to foreign aircraft could be Sukhoi Superjet 100.

    37 fields - so many foreign flights until March 25, 2017 Federal air transport Agency has extended the airline "Aeroflot" and "Russia" the validity of the certificates. The decree posted on the website of the Federal air transport Agency
    "The second main plane MS-21. It can be in Russia is very popular, but it only developed", - says Roman Gusarov. For mass production you can count only 4-5 years. It is also planned to revive the production of Il-96-300, but again it is only a plan.

    But the Institute of procurement will allow state-owned companies not be left without an aircraft. "Applying for the purchase of foreign aircraft, the airline can point to the absence of the Russian analogues and count on the positive decision", - says Roman Gusarov.

    Russia & China reveal their alternative to Airbus & Boeing

    Did anyone figure out why its reported that Russia does the development of the new widebody.
    but that it would be assembled in China?

    I think I read something that said it was just "final assembling together" in China. With lots eg wings, built in Russia.

    U wonder if Russia will make the engines, or if they will be co-developed? Russia, not surprisingly tends to be very guarded about her engine tech.

    Also I wonder if Russia will home build her own version of the new widebody.

    Why not ? China is the factory of the world, she has copious workers and abundant facilities for the jobs.

    But I am sure that the titanium framework, the most valuable part of the aircraft, must be developed and produced by Russia. As she has been doing with Airbus and Boeing.

    Russian aircraft manufacturer Irkut has activated the electrical system on the MC-21 narrowbody as the flight test aircraft moves closer to a scheduled first flight in February or March.

    The power-on milestone was disclosed in a transcript released by the Kremlin of a conversation between prime minister Vladimir Putin and deputy prime minister Dmitry Rogozin on 11 November.

    Irkut had maintained that first flight would occur by the end of 2016, but Russian president Dmitry Medvedev let it slip during the June roll-out of the MC-21 that flight testing would begin in early 2017.

    In the 11 November meeting, Rogozin told Putin that the first flight date is scheduled in February, but weather in Irkutsk, Siberia, could push the milestone to March.

    Irkut’s next task is to check the electrical system for electromagnetic interference problems. A software load required to begin moving ground tests will be loaded in December, Rogozin says. Safety of flight software will then be loaded in January or February.

    Meanwhile, a structural test aircraft will undergo loads testing at the Central Aerohydrodynamics Insititue (TsAGI) in Moscow, he says.

    Two more flight test aircraft will join the programme. The second aircraft, which, like the first test article, will be powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1400G geared turbofans, will enter final assembly in Irkutsk in December, Rogozin says. A fourth aircraft will join the programme later, but will be powered with Aviadvigatel PD-14 turbofan engines, Rogozin says.

    The mention of Russia’s indigenous competitor to the US-built PW1400G drew a response from Putin, according to the transcript.

    “Very good,” Putin said.

    Rogozin also updated Putin on efforts to launch a governmental Aviation Board, which would be charged with making Russian airlines compliant with new import substitution laws. The Russian government’s policy dictates that airlines replace Western-built aircraft with Russian-made alternatives as they become available, to include the MC-21 narrowbody, Ilyushin Il-114 regional turboprop and an upgraded Il-96 widebody.

    Six months after a public roll-out ceremony, Russian manufacturer Irkut has completed installing a modular final assembly line for the MC-21-300 airliner and made progress in ground testing, the company says on 20 December.

    The 180-seat, single-aisle aircraft is scheduled to achieve first flight from Irkut’s assembly complex in Irkutsk early next year, with entry-into-service expected to follow in 2018.

    Since the roll-out of the first flight test aircraft on 8 June, Irkut continued preparing the single-aisle aircraft for flight tests. The fuselage has been pressurised, systems have been powered on and ground vibration testing is now underway, Irkut says in a presentation distributed to journalists.

    Meanwhile, static test of fuselage and wing structures is also continuing to support the first flight milestone. Most crucially, Irkut is continuing to examine the strength of one of the key technologies developed for the MC-21 — a full-scale wing fashioned with a wingbox and wingskins made with composite material cured outside of an autoclave using a liquid resin infusion process.

    Additional ground testing a full-scale static article is also “near completion”, Irkut says in the presentation.

    Two more flight test aircraft are being assembled on the newly-completed modular assembly in Irkutsk, where Irkut also assembles Yak-130 trainers and Su-30 fighters, the company adds.

    The MC-21 is the Russian aerospace industry’s most ambitious commercial aircraft project since the arrival of the Sukhoi Superjet, but is significantly more ambitious. The aircraft features a wider fuselage cross-section than the Airbus A320, lower cabin pressure altitude and a full fly-by-wire flight control system with active sidestick controllers. Irkut has paired the aircraft with a choice of Pratt & Whitney PW1400G geared turbofan engines or Aviadvigatel PD-14s.

    Russia’s UAC looks for efficiency and increased civil sales

    http://www.rusaviainsider.com/russias-uac-looks-for-efficiency-and-increased-civil-sales/

    Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) plans to change its industrial concept and organizational structure as well as increase the share of commercial products in its total output, says the company’s new development strategy until 2035 announced last week. This document has been presented soon after Russia’s Ministry of Industry and Trade published the strategy for development of the country’s aviation industry until 2030 which also describes the existing industrial concept of the whole industry as ineffective.

    As part of its concept renewal UAC plans to create specialization centers in the near future as well as production and development centers of competence. The corporation wants to decrease the number of final assembly plants (some of them are to be repurposed) and scale down production facilities area. Part of the discharged works are planned to be sold or leased. Another aim of new industrial concept is outsourcing non-key operations and organization of supplier management system. UAC estimates the financial effect from all these actions scheduled in 2016-2035 to be more than 700 billion rubles (about $11.3 billion).

    UAC structural change assumes turning the holding into an integrated company which should enhance business controllability. It is planned to implement unified standards, establish subdivisions on major business directions and introduce a program-based management system.

    Civil production share in UAC portfolio by 2025 should grow not less than to 40%, and not less than to 45% by 2035. The company’s share on the commercial aircraft market should grow from current 1% to 4.5%. Now the civil products amount less than 20% of UAC portfolio. As part of its civil segment expansion the corporation will have to balance its revenue volumes, build up sales system and improve aftersales support.

    As a result of the new strategy implementation by 2035 the corporation plans to create “a profitable business which is attractive to investors” and decrease its state financial support dependence. UAC civil products will include Ilyushin Il-114-300 turboprop, Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) regional jet with its long range and VIP modifications, МС-21-200/300 narrow body airliner and future Russian-Chinese wide-body aircraft.

    The Ministry of Industry and Trade’s revamped strategy which was published in November this year stated lack of efficiency and subsidy-dependence of Russian aviation industry as well as its almost 100% orientation on the local market. Aftersales support system is also criticized. It is also noted that the previous development strategy until 2015 had been implemented only partially also due to diluting resources on too many projects and lack of experience in the international cooperation.

    Andrew Boginsky a new aviation industry development strategy, growth points in the helicopter, and refusal to finance the project of high-speed helicopter perspective

    http://vpk.name/news/172167_andrei_boginskii_o_novoi_strategii_razvitiya_aviaproma_tochkah_rosta_v_vertoletostroenii_i_otkaze_ot_finansirovaniya_proekta_perspektivnogo_skorostnogo_vertoleta.html

    - Ministry of Industry has prepared a strategy for the development of the Russian aviation industry for the period up to 2030. A lot of new?


    - The previous strategy was adopted in 2006 and has been calculated up to 2015. Accordingly, its action is over. This year we have developed a new document, which should be the key to the industry in terms of the direction of future development. The development strategy was accompanied by public discussions on various platforms, including aircraft manufacturers in the Union, which includes 90% of the companies in one way or another connected with aviation: manufacturers, suppliers, remzavody. Key provisions of the document were discussed with representatives of the State Duma profile committee. Now we have sent a draft strategy for the coordination of the federal bodies of executive power.


    Also, the basic document for the industry is the state program of development of the aviation industry for the period up to 2025. She began to act this year, replacing the federal target program.


    - What are the priorities selected?



    - The main objective of the strategy remains the same - to consolidate and strengthen the position of Russia as an aviation power. In the new document, the emphasis is primarily on the areas related to the improvement of the efficiency of the integrated structures - the KLA, "Russian Helicopters", JDC and others.


    It is obvious that the increase in production volume due to the extensive development of limited capabilities of enterprises, including human resources. Therefore one of the key elements of improving the economic situation in the aviation industry, in our view, should be the change of the industrial model of integrated structures - broad development of cooperation, risk-divided partnership. It is necessary to develop existing suppliers and new, including through the allocation of suppliers of integrated structures and encouraging their entry into the world market, integration into the global division of labor.


    In general, an increase in the presence of Russian products to foreign markets - is an important element of the strategy. However, in comparison with the previous document, we adjusted the target. Previously the task was to take its products to 10% of the global civil aviation market, but now has become a more realistic figure. We want 2030 to take 3% of the world market. And I must tell you, this problem is no less ambitious, given the fact that today the proportion of our civil aviation industry represents less than 1%.


    Of course, the implementation of the strategy can be provided that have the resources and have the incentive mechanism to achieve the goals. The document we have focused on government stimulation in the form of support measures, these tools are well known.


    - When do you plan to adopt the document?



    - We assume that in December we get comments of the federal bodies of executive power. Perhaps with some agree with some - not. We seek a consensus. We hope that in the I quarter of next year, the strategy will be approved.


    - What amount of funding is planned to subsidize the export of aircraft?


    - This is not in the strategy. There is the development of guidelines, a set of measures. Financing volumes specified in the government program.


    - How much you want to give?



    - All our needs are justified by concrete calculations and linked to specific performance indicators. We do not say, give a trillion or two. Everything rests on the production capacity of enterprises, their obligations under the state defense order contracts and state program of armaments, export contracts, as well as plans to promote to certain markets. For example, Sukhoi Superjet 100 is certified according to European standards EASA. This allows you to plan a sufficiently wide market coverage.


    The government program we have support measures. They aim to ensure that the future operator has been profitable to work with new domestic appliances. As long as these measures apply to the aircraft. Now we are preparing a proposal for helicopters. I believe that such measures will be in the next year. But I must stress that our proposed measures are targeted only at the initial stage of operation. We help start the process, on producers and operators must work independently.


    - With respect to the geography of deliveries of Russian aircraft have a rough understanding?



    - With regard to the Sukhoi Superjet 100 is the first major foreign operator - is a Mexican company Interjet. This is one of the most beloved partners, because it is very closely related to the cooperation with the "Sukhoi Civil Aircraft" (SCAC) in the approaches to the maintenance of machinery. Interjet have very high technical culture. In mid-November, I was in Mexico, visited the company, got acquainted with their technical facilities, management approaches. I can say that Interjet - is indifferent operators who enjoy Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft.


    The second major foreign partner GSS - Irish CityJet, which signed a "hard" contract for 15 aircraft and an option for another 16. CityJet this year, has already received three aircraft. The model of the company's business is such that they independently carry out transportation and rent boats in the "wet lease", that is, with a crew of other carriers. According to my information, CityJet now actively cooperates with Finnaire companies, as well as the "Brussels Airlines". That is our aircraft, Sukhoi Superjet 100, it starts to fly in Europe. Consumer reviews of the product is very high, both in terms of comfort and efficiency of technical solutions, as well as from the point of view of economic efficiency.


    But right now we need to pay very close attention to after-sales service and maintenance SSJ100. KLA, GSS, and we are actively engaged. support measures contained in the government program aimed at relieve bottlenecks - on the one hand, it is necessary to support the operator when introducing a new type of technology, as I said, on the other - to help the manufacturer the right to organize the timely ordering and delivery of spare parts to aircraft or helicopters not idle on the ground, and worked.


    Any measure designed to subsidize the costs associated with the production of spare parts, supplies of their operators, but there is interest subsidy on loans taken on the organization of the warehouse. We understand that in order to arrange for after-sales service at the appropriate level, to form one or more parts warehouses in different parts of the world, the operator must either freeze working capital or obtain loans and serve them, which is costly. After consultations with manufacturers, operators and leasing companies we have developed a measure aimed at partial compensation of such costs.


    In advance of such a measure has been developed and state support as subsidies for the costs associated with certification. Primarily, this is directed to devices and components to stimulate developers and manufacturers.


    In general, the provision of service - a profitable business, and our task - only to help launch the flywheel.


    - It was reported that in Mexico we can organize the production of components for the Sukhoi Superjet. At some stage the question?



    - Memorandum. Colleagues from the GSS and Interjet is chosen this way of interaction: the conclusion of the license agreement, and self organization of production. That is, we will give the license for the right to manufacture certain spare parts in Mexico. In reaching this decision, we took into account that Mexico GDP volume occupies 14 th place in the world statistics. The volume of exports of aircraft parts from Mexico - about $ 7.5 billion a year. In this country, collected serious competence even formed due to the presence there of foreign manufacturers. I visited several companies including Snecma's plant. In these enterprises a high level of production and high production standards.


    - India is also interested in the Sukhoi Superjet. There is some agreement?



    - The negotiations are going. And I must say, the negotiations are not only with companies from India but also from China, Africa.


    - You call helicopters "ANSAT" and the Mi-38. What other helicopters and aircraft can receive export support?



    - By and large, any product. It does not matter, this is a new development or the development of previous years. A measure of support there for a long time - it is subsidizing interest rates on loans for export. It is implemented jointly with VEB. Such support may be provided to manufacturers of aircraft, helicopters, locomotives, innovative cars, that is applied to the entire spectrum of high-tech industrial products.


    - What aviaproekty identified priorities and by any abandoned?



    - Sukhoi Superjet 100 and MS-21 - priority projects. Also among the priorities of the Mi-38 and Ka-62. On the Mi-38, as I have said, I received the basic certificate. for the Ka-62 work continues. We look forward to the first full flight of this helicopter, hovering already.


    The project is a promising high-speed helicopter was reformatted. Due to the need to revise his original concept of the state funding is discontinued.


    In the engine-key project is the subject of civil engine PD-14. He is active in the testing stage. The first phase of test flights on a flying laboratory is complete, start the second. Also launched a project to create a high-thrust engine for PD-35 wide-bodied aircraft.


    In the agregatostroeniya and instrument, we set ourselves an ambitious goal - to promote the development KRETom, "technodynamics" and private companies, technical solutions in the field of Aviapribor and units corresponding to the world level, which can then be certified as part of the aircraft, not only in Russia, but also according to international standards.


    Among the other sections of the state program - aviation science and small aircraft. Centre in the field of small aviation competencies defined SibNIA, because there is also a design office, and testing facilities. Specialists of the Institute continue to work to create an airplane for local airlines with a capacity of between nine and 19 passengers. Some solutions, such as composite wing biplane design has been tested and shown at last year's MAKS as a demonstrator based on the An-2. Created wing has very good aerodynamic performance, it is a large extension, because it is made from composites. It is a merit SibNIA scientists together with colleagues from TsAGI and other institutions.


    - The set of grants to support primary sales Sukhoi Superjet and other aircraft appeared guarantee the residual value. What is its essence?


    - All our actions - is a response to market needs. For example, it is important to leasing companies when promoting the aircraft Sukhoi Superjet? When buying a new aircraft, they make long-term investment in the asset, using the money of shareholders or borrowed funds. The plane is, including leveraged return software. In this case the leasing company does not know how much it will cost this aircraft in 12 years, when the leasing contract expires and there is a need to find a new tenant. Today, this can only be roughly predicted.


    For such cases, there is in the world Proven Practices - someone guarantees the residual value of the aircraft, determining how much it will cost in 12 years. Taking international experience as a basis, we have developed a measure of support - guaranteed residual value. It was discussed in detail with the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Economic Development, the calculations were made. In a special company "KLA-Capital" was established last year, which is controlled by representatives of our major leasing companies and banks. The funds which the state forms, allow 12 years to ensure the payment obligations or cover, if the residual value is less than the estimated. Moreover, the state will cover one-third of the residual value, and the rest will have to give the manufacturer. Thus, this measure will stimulate the manufacturer to take care of their product throughout the life cycle. After all, he knows that he will have to create reserves by the end of the lease agreement.


    - How are the funding allocated to support measures?



    - The amount of funding allocated to guarantee the residual value, are tied to the number of aircraft, in particular, the plan for the sale of the UAC SSJ100 commercial carriers. Guaranteed residual value does not apply to state agencies to supply aircraft, business jets, because there is another principle of operation.


    The same applies to interest rate subsidies on loans to leasing companies. The volumes depend on the interest rate on the loans, the number of airplanes. It is understood that the amount will increase as the supply growth. The measure aims to align the conditions under which the work our aviation industry and foreign competitors. We have a key interest rate - 10.5% and the effective rate for the leasing companies abroad - 2-3%.


    - What amount of funding from the state as a whole is scheduled for the aviation industry?



    - About 50 billion rubles a year. In drawing up the government program we have laid about the same annual funding until 2025.


    - There is a risk of reduced funding?


    - Reducing the threat is always there. Economic conditions and parameters of the budget by the time may change. Experimentally SSJ100 first time we came to the complex product. Not only for its production, but also the beginning of operation. And we do these approaches will also be applied to the MS-21.


    If you remember, it was a Sukhoi Superjet - made product, and then live as you want. Well, such a scheme does not work. Aircraft have to accompany, support. Therefore, having filled bumps on the promotion of Sukhoi Superjet, we not only understand, but also try to convey to our colleagues from other departments, that this project should be supported.


    Today we can see that the measures are starting to bear fruit by the State. Maybe not a huge success, but we were able to, for example, together with colleagues from the KLA and stabilize the GSS boot production Sukhoi Superjet 100. The stability allows to correctly plan purchases, labor costs, investment costs, and not only in the KLA, but also in enterprises entering into cooperation. However, a more pronounced effect, we will be able to feel later, as everyone in the aviation industry has long cycles.


    - Some companies, for example, Boeing and Airbus would like to expand its presence in Russia. Solutions already exist?



    - Perhaps you have in mind to work with Russian suppliers. Today, some local companies are already partners Boeing and Airbus. For example, the largest supplier of titanium for the two world leaders in aircraft manufacturing - a Russian company "VSMPO-Avisma".


    There are other examples: the company "Hamilton-Science", located in Kimry, develops and markets heat exchangers, "Gidromash" from Nizhny Novgorod supplies landing gear. Corporation "Irkut", a member of the KLA, supplies landing gear niche for the Airbus A-320. Such examples, unfortunately, not very much, but they are. And it tells how that our level of production culture, if not everywhere, but high enough so that we have the capacity to do it.


    - In MS-21 there is already some supply arrangements, with which countries?



    - There are contracts signed leasing companies with 175 aircraft. Contracts with foreign customers yet. To intensify this process will be after the first flight.


    - You are monitoring the situation with the preparation for it?



    - And how! We expect that the resolution on the first flight will be received in the first half of March 2017. Everything is going according to schedule, work is being done actively, both at the factory and in research institutions conducting the tests. Aircraft Certification by Russian standards has already begun. Negotiations on the early foreign standards certification should take place in the near future. We are connected in parallel to the maximum all processes.


    - There is interest in the MS-21 by foreign airlines?



    - On the plane was rolling out a lot of foreign colleagues: Acquisitions and airline representatives were invited. It seems to me, operators around the world are interested to destroy the duopoly that has developed in this class of aircraft between Boeing and Airbus. All, of course, in anticipation, the first flight of the MS-21 will take place.

    For the first time in the MS-21 is used entirely composite - "black" - wing. This is the first experience for the aviation industry and the chemical industry. It is necessary to confirm the qualifications, loyalty engineering calculations.


    - The head of "Rusal" Oleg Deripaska, who also attended the rollout of MS-21, talked about the desire of the company to supply high-strength alloys for the aircraft? Do you now have any agreement?



    - "Rusal" said that developed a high-scandium-aluminum alloys. We held several meetings with colleagues from the "Rusal", created a working group composed of representatives of "Rusal" and VIAM. VIAM must first to certify these alloys for the possibility of their use by designers in the design and construction of aircraft. This work goes on.


    - Ministry of Industry decided on light aircraft for local airlines?



    - Firstly, we have the Il-114 project. This is also the regional aviation. The work is organized. Then in the regional aviation development, a project to localize the production of L-410 in Yekaterinburg.
    Czech partners watching for any information about the project and sensitive to rumors that the alleged domestic owners want to close the plant in the Czech Republic, and move production to Ekaterinburg. There is no such problem. Why cover the production and design of the aircraft, which is certified according to standards easovskim? Why shut themselves potential market? As for the L-410 production development in Yekaterinburg, its adaptation to Russian conditions, of course, will be agreed with the developer. We hope that this will increase the competitiveness of the aircraft, not only in Russia but also abroad. This aircraft is more competitive in the Russian market than, say, Twin Otter. L-410 is consistent with the priorities and preferences of leasing companies. In addition, the Czech company Aircraft Industries Russian shareholders.


    Another project in this segment, as I said, is implemented on the basis of SibNIA where 9-19 seaters developed. The SibNIA today compares favorably with other institutions? In SibNIA there CB. It is certified, there are specialists, system design. SibNIA is working on this product since the release of the design documentation to the future assignment of letter "O".



    Works deployed. Go, in my opinion, the right way. First, based on the flying laboratory An-2 was tested a prototype of the wing. It has proven effective in the flights. Further colleagues made sketchily-technical project 9-seater aircraft. Now comes the manufacture of parts of the aircraft. We hope that next year will be able to see it at max. At least, it would be desirable, of course, to see one of the first flights. But let's not guessing.


    - This year, the project was restarted regional turboprop aircraft IL-114. On it allocated over 50 billion rubles. How is he going?



    - In total, the program provided 55.9 billion rubles. This amount covers the cost of digitization of aircraft, redesign, modernization of production and certification. The world lives, everything changes, change the rules of aviation. Another trend - is to improve the power plant. the establishment of after-sales service network is also provided. Finally, sales support through capital increase of any of the leasing companies, which will deal with the promotion of the aircraft. Recapitalization will reduce the cost of ownership of the aircraft.


    - Some experts say that the project is a long-haul Il-96-400 backed by the state is unlikely to be recovered. What do you think about it?



    - The issue of return or not return invested in an investment project depends on whether "public parrots" to measure and put some dates. What's Il-96-400 for the country? This is, firstly, the question of preserving the design and construction of competences widebody long-haul aircraft, which is especially important now, as we enter the project of creation of wide-body aircraft with Chinese partners. The second - is to download the Voronezh aircraft factory.


    In view of the planned measures to support the operator, as well as a possible recapitalization of the leasing company it is possible that the aircraft will be more profitable to operate than Boeing and Airbus. Cheaper than in terms of operating costs, but in terms of ownership costs.


    And do not forget about the amount of subsidies, which are now allocated to air carriers conducting flights to the Far East and mainly exploiting foreign equipment. It also must be considered.


    - So you expect a positive overall effect?


    - Yes.


    - Management of the airline "Transaero" has developed a plan to create on the basis of a new carrier airlines. Are you familiar with the document? Do you consider it possible to create a new airline?



    - We have heard that "Transaero" on the base would create an airline that including to operate and SSJ100. We always support the promotion of Russian products. If the new carrier will use domestic appliances, and "Transaero" this experience was, we would welcome its appearance on the market.


    In addition, we welcome its appearance and from a consumer perspective. Many people today say that the care "Transaero" ticket prices have increased. The appearance on the market of another carrier - an additional competition, and hence more balanced pricing policy.


    - Did they send you a plan to introduce?



    - Not yet.

    ^^ From the interview it seems besides making IL-114 , they would be making L 410NG in Russia and planning to move production line from Czech to Russia.

    Another project by SibNIA where 9-19 seaters aircraft is getting developed.

    Good. Localise production in Russia so its production cannot be effected by EU sanctions or other interference. Czech jobs will be lost... but Russian jobs created.

    I must also notice that all avionics are Garmin, Honeywell and Universal. That could pose certain problems with certification in 2017. if suppliers get bothered with export to Russia.

    I guess they would have no choice but to retrofit it with Russian avionics from Kret. Engines may be a problem.

    Garmin most likely wouldnt be the major problem as its devices are of highly commercial nature for the most part. Honeywell on other hand with all of its ties with US MIC might be an issue.

    But engines... yeah. Unless they do it by reexporting from Checz to Russia or some similar hole in the ban.

    The Sukhoi Superjet is in the same situation as the L-410. It uses many western components. But it is not been affected by sanctions thus far.

    In case sanctions are introduced against Russia to disrupt production of civil aviation, Boeing and Airbus can kiss good-bye to any orders from Aeroflot and other Russian airlines. They will also have to do without the Titanium they buy from Russia, they will also have to find new sources for landing gears which are produced for the western narrow-bodies in IIRKUT etc. etc.

    Sanctions in the civil aviation field will hurt both sides very hard.

    But yes, I am all for switching to Kret and other domestic components.

    As per Rostec, they don't need to import avionics. Engines for this line of craft? Probably.

    Yes it will hurt but we cant trust these Lunatic Western Leaders ability to hurt their own feet and claim victory.

    It is better to reduce western component on Superjet or any Russian jet to the minimum possible ......Replace the Superjet engine with PD-9 variant

    And it is good for RUssian industry too as most jobs will come to Russia and will reduce Russian dependence on Western component
