    In the IL-96-400M will be installed upgraded engines PS-90A3M

    http://perm.rbc.ru/perm/freenews/58b95bea9a794707befa8af4


    Perm "Aircraft Engine" will upgrade the PS-90A1 engines for wide-body long-haul aircraft IL-96-400M. This Perm RBC said the head of the enterprise Alexander Inozemtsev.

    Passenger ship will be based on IL-96-400T cargo. Its production will Voronezh aircraft factory. Remodeled board must be powered by four turbofan engines PS-90A3M, maximum take-off mass must not be less than 270 tons and range with a payload of 41 tonnes - at least 9 thousand. Km. These characteristics allow the new car to become a cruise on a par with foreign "shirokofyuzelyazhnikami". Currently Permian aircraft designers are working on the feasibility study of this project.

    "The President has set a task to make a batch of 6-10 aircraft and begin their operation in Russia. By the time when there will be PD-35, the aircraft is expected reentine a twin-engine variant. This happens in about 10-15 years ", - said the managing director-general designer of JSC" UEC-AVIADVIGATEL "A. Inozemtsev


    Last autumn edition of "Vedomosti" reported that the KLA is planning to raise in the sky the first prototype passenger IL-96-400M in 2019. to modernize the program will cost about 53 billion rubles, of which a little less than 10 billion will be spent on development work. In addition, it was reported that the aircraft will be used for government agencies, first of all, for the "Russian" special flight detachment.

    So new details emerging about IL-96-400M Wide Body Passenger Aircraft

    1 ) It will be powered by a modernised PS-90A3M Engine , I think they will use the most modern PS-90A3 engine and uprate it for 16T Thrust during take off
    2 ) IL-96-400M can carry upto 41 Tons of Cargo/Passenger upto a range of atleast 9000 km
    3 ) President has ordered 6-10 Aircraft of that category
    4 ) Later on the IL-96-400M will be again reengine with 2 PD-35 Engine , this will take 10-15 years so probably will happen after 2030

    What's with the idiotic article title. As if the current SSJ-100 is some sort of failure. F*ck off, liberast-tard "journalists".

    I recall the liberast-tards calling the SSJ-100 a vapourware project several years ago. They should just shut the f*ck up
    already.

    Found some additional information on PS-90A3 from Chief Designer of Perm

    Perm developers presented to customers the unified PS-90A3u engine


    http://www.aviationunion.org/news_second.php?new=123

    April 2012 in Moscow there was a conference "Prospects of PS-90A engines development", during which one there was a presentation of PS-90A3u engine, which is designed for replacement of PS-90A series at certified aircraft — IL-96, Tu-204/214, IL-76TD-90 and their modification. JSC "Aviadvigatel", JSC "Perm Engine Company" with the participation of United Engine Corporation were organizers of the conference.

    The conference was attended by almost all Russian airlines which use aircraft with PS-90A engines series: Russian presidential aircraft, "Aeroflot-RAL", "Red Wings", "Volga-Dnepr", "Transaero Airlines", "Aviastar-TU", "Polet".

    At the conference's opening, managing director, chief designer of JSC "Aviadvigatel", Mr. Alexander Inozemtsev, noted that the decision on creation of the new modification in PS-90A engine series is dictated by need to propose to existing and potential partners of Perm motor builders the engines, created on the basis of up-to-date design solutions and technologies.

    Deputy chief designer - chief designer of aviation engines of Perm design bureau, Mr. Alexander Semenov, told in details about PS-90A3u project and prospective of new modification. Certified in 2009, PS90A3u was created with aim to increase the exploitation parameters in compare with the level, reached at the basic PS-90A. The creators tried to reach changeability of PS-90A and PS-90A2 by developing this engine. However, even though in geometric and weight parameters, in conjoint parts the full changeability was reached, at the interface for PS-90A2 it was necessary to integrate deunification for Tu-204SM.

    In 2011 at "Aviadvigatel", it was decided to return to idea of aircraft with PS-90 modernization with help of engine, which would have all technological advance of PS-90A2, but would not need any modification of aircraft. This engine gained an designation – PS-90A3u. Its primary difference in design from PS-90A is the using the fan's body frame of basic PS-90A engine with aim to decrease engine's weight and cost.

    Chief designer of Perm design bureau expressed confidence that PS-90A3u will serve significantly longer over the wing, than basic PS-90A, and with reduced costs for repair. Airlines can can not only purchase new engines but also reequip existing PS-90A into PS-90A3 during overhaul.

    While talking about the advantages of Ps-90A3u, chief designer highlighted the increased engine's average life before the repair. "This will allow companies to exploit aircraft more intensive by reducing the demurrage, caused by engine's replacing, will shorten number of repairs, made by enterprise-manufacturer, — highlighted Alexander Semenov. — Engine's downtime will be reduced from 50 to 22 months during the life cycle. Engine's reliability will be significantly increased, which will allow customers to minimize flight delay and preflight time".

    For now JSC "Aviadvigatel" together with Perm Engine Company is holding the activity on the mastering of PS-90A2u mass production. "Many documents on PS-90A3u were released, design documentation is being released. We will try to install on one Tu-204 and one Il-76-TD-90 in the number of one PS-90A3u with aim of outmarch operation", — Alexander Semenov said.

    Tu-204SM was never in competion with MS-21 and Tu-204SM did its certification around 2011 while MS-21 will get it around 2019 if all goes well.

    There is decade of lead Tu-204SM has over MS-21-300 , So comparing one of the worlds best Narrow Body aircraft with a 757 class types is hardly a fair one.

    They were suppose to order Tu-204SM but then sabatoged it in favour of MS-21.

    They could have easily told Aeroflot low cast carrier and RedWing and Rossiya to operate a few dozen of it but they are happy to let them import 737/A-320 types while West is happily Screwing Russia Sanctioning it and Russia is subsidizing Western Aviation Industry

    THE RATE ON THE DOMESTIC MARKET

    UAC in the first place will ensure the needs of domestic airlines

    https://www.aviaport.ru/news/2017/03/07/425065.html

    Strategy of development of PJSC "United Aircraft Corporation" (UAC) provides an ambitious goal of increasing the overall share of civil production to 45%. At the moment, it does not exceed 20%. President Yuri Slusar KLA during the first meeting of the Aviation Board of the Government of the Russian Federation stressed that the achievement of this goal is not possible without a short-term priority to ensure the domestic market demand for modern high-tech aircraft, and no specific government support measures.


    The planes themselves are needed

    How Yu.Slyusar noted Russian airlines were and are starting all customers of domestic civil aviation programs. According to the KLA, on the horizon of the next 20 years the demand of the domestic market will be more than 1,100 passenger aircraft with a capacity of 30 seats. The expected demand due to the expected increase in air traffic, which on average should reach 4.5% per year. The most popular single-aisle planes will, designed to carry more than 120 passengers. The corporation believed that demand will be around 710 aircraft (AC). In the segment of aircraft with a capacity of 60 to 120 seats will need to be about 200 BC. As for wide-body aircraft with a capacity of 230 passengers, the need for Russian airlines will be about 130 units. "Given the current state of the fleet of aircraft in the domestic market, according to our estimates, the new surge in demand for" shirokofyuzelyazhniki "should occur in 7-10 years", - said the head of the KLA.

    Yu.Slyusar also added that in the regional transport segment, there is a pent-up demand, which is associated with the continuation of operation of AN-24 aircraft and An-26. By mid-2020 the Sun will actually be removed from the fleet, and will need to be replaced by Russian aircraft. "A small demand in the region of 100 aircraft, we expect in this niche," - said the president of the KLA.

    The implementation of the current programs

    on the basis of a long-term forecast of the market demand with the support of the KLA States is actively working on the creation of new competitive models of civil engineering and the development of existing programs. According Yu.Slyusarya, the end result of this work should be the formation of modern civil line of products presented in the most popular segments.

    In 2016, on the implementation of the IL-114 (regional turboprop aircraft) program marked the first means. To date, it has already been contracted to perform design work and preparation of production. The main objectives for this year include the development of design documentation for experimental aircraft, selection of suppliers on the systems and equipment, as well as applying for certification. Yu.Slyusar said that the Il-114 program includes the installation of new avionics and engines (TV7-117SM first, then - TV7-117ST), expansion and operation of the functional capabilities from unprepared airfields. The corporation now is working with Russian airlines - potential customers, trying to take them into account in the formation of the technical requirements of the aircraft shape. "Our partner for the program is leasing company GTLK (State Transport Leasing Company -" AviaPort "). This will allow us to offer airlines an efficient economy of aircraft operation, - said the head of the KLA -. In the middle of 2017, we plan to conclude with GTLK an agreement and has already starting this year provides investment capitalization companies, contracting and promotion of this aircraft. "

    Yu.Slyusar not leave without attention and the aircraft Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100). He said that today the airline operates about 100 BC this type, with two thirds of them are used by Russian carriers. For export - 26 new SSJ 100, eight of them are delivered to customers last year. By the middle of the current year it is planned to sign a contract with "Aeroflot" for the delivery of another 20 aircraft during the 2017-2018 period. "Now the main task of the program - the development of after-sales service Today we are focusing on this in particular with our key partner -.. The company" Aeroflot "- develop and implement a program to improve the reliability of the park," - added Yu.Slyusar. In addition, the head of the KLA, is an active cooperation with Russian leasing companies, including GTLK, in the provision of effective financial operators packages. The main advantage here - the lease payments in rubles.

    With regard to the generated MS-21, currently has a portfolio of orders of 175 airplanes. "Our task -. To make the aircraft competitive in comparison with modern analogues This applies to fuel efficiency and weight, level of operating economy, the comfort of passengers and crew, a developed system of PPO (after-sales service -" AviaPort ")," - said Yu.Slyusar. He added that part of the PPO is to create a unified customer support center for the whole of the civil product line. The head of the KLA said that the first flight is expected to ship later this year, and the start of serial deliveries scheduled for 2019 (Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin at the same meeting said that the beginning of deliveries scheduled for the 4th quarter of 2018). In the current year will conclude agreements with operators and end-deploy production.

    Reminded Yu.Slyusar and that in the long term the product line will be complemented by wide-body long-haul aircraft of the new generation (SHFDMS), to the creation of the KLA which has already started in collaboration with colleagues from the COMAC Corporation (China). The project is expected to be realized on a new technical platform that will be competitive in comparison with the modern family of wide-Sun Boeing and Airbus production. According to forecasts of the KLA and COMAC, Chinese airlines need only to aircraft SHFDMS during 2023-2045 years will be 1,100 units. "From the start of the program before the first flight will take about 7-8 years The first aircraft will be delivered to the customer within 10-12 years after the start of the program." - Said the president of the KLA.

    During the creation of SHFDMS Corporation will continue to work on a modernized Il-96-400M-based transport version. In the KLA believe that for this aircraft in the Russian market there is a certain niche. "In addition, we need to maintain the existing competencies, to continue to download our production capacity in Voronezh Production rates will be low, but will ensure the maintenance of competence and increase the number of aircraft in service." - Added Yu.Slyusar.

    Without the support do not

    one of the main challenges facing today Russian aircraft manufacturers, - the weakening of tariff protection in the aviation industry, which took place against the background of harmonization of conditions at the introduction of our country into the World Trade Organization (WTO). "The general trend in the liberalization of regulatory regimes of foreign trade, protective measures of tariff and non-tariff regulation, unfortunately, led to the eventual removal of whatever was the protection for developed and produced aircraft - said the president of the KLA -. And look forward in this sense aeronautical board, which would enable competent, without prejudice to the interests of the operators, the market and the economy as a whole, strike a balance between the interests of the domestic aviation industry and the needs of the aviation industry. "

    By the measures already in force (the size of state is about 50 billion rubles a year), in a difficult economic situation, it is advisable to provide for additional measures of state stressed Yu.Slyusar. In particular, it is necessary to improve the procedure for granting subsidies to operators of domestic appliances, as well as increase support for leasing companies in the acquisition of the Armed Forces of the Russian manufacture.

    Yu.Slyusar also announced a proposal to further improve the federal legislation on licensing certain types of activities and the provision of tax concessions on property aviation industry organizations. Concluding his speech, the head of the KLA said that in the field of international activities is necessary to continue work on the site of the Eurasian Economic Commission to ensure that customs-tariff and non-tariff protection of the domestic market of domestic aircraft as well as to strengthen the economic state support export projects and to pay special attention to the certification of civil engineering of the Russian manufacture .

    Nice Information on UEC Engine program from official sources

    FROM THE BASE TO THE FAMILY


    https://www.aviaport.ru/news/2017/03/07/425117.html

    "United Engine Building Corporation" is implementing a new approach to the creation of aircraft engines, which will be developed according to the basic gas generators using all promising technologies. In the future engine family will be based on them, the respective customer requirements. This will reverse the trend of the past years, when the lack of advanced technological advance led to the need for its creation already in the process of engine development, which entailed a significant increase in both time-consuming, and the total cost of the work. New Approaches Corporation during the first meeting of the Aviation Board of the Government of the Russian Federation told the CEO of UEC Alexander Artyukhov.


    One of the problems of the domestic civil aviation was considered to be lagging behind the leading powers in the creation of efficient engines. The reason why the engine becomes "weak link", was systematic: many years of consecutive work on a new generation of engines started with a delay of the development of its own aircraft, which led to the introduction of phasing in the implementation of projects. As a result, forward-looking planes and helicopters were prepared as serial transition existing engines that do not achieve the stated performance, to realize the full potential of the aircraft, reducing their competitiveness and commercial attractiveness.

    "United Engine Building Corporation" faced with this problem in the implementation of the project PD-14 engine for the future of the main MS-21 aircraft. The situation demanded a review of approaches to the development of new products. Now the emphasis is on the creation of basic gas generators that receive the most advanced technical and technological solutions. In the future, based on the needs and samolёto- vertolёtostroiteley on their platform will be created with the necessary engine parameters. This approach, according to the head of the JDC would not only harmonize the timing of development of aircraft engines and aircraft, but also to ensure the achievement of the planned features in full, as well as enhance the competitiveness of the products and will generally reduce technical risks in projects.

    During the meeting, board Air A.Artyuhov spoke in detail about the ongoing projects and future developments. First of all, he recalled the SaM146 engine, certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Aircraft engine fully complies with all rules and regulations that govern the safe operation, including corrosivity environment and sea-based. According to the UEC, the corporation is now the task of increasing the level of localization of production in Russia SaM146. It is planned that the work will be carried out in two stages. "The first stage is planned to increase the degree of localization to 55% on the second stage -. 80%," - said A.Artyuhov. He also noted that in addition to the current use on the Sukhoi Superjet 100, the installation of SaM146 is possible and the Be-200.

    Also A.Artyuhov informed about the current state of the project development turboprop TV7-117SM / PT. He stressed that this is a key part of the program in the task of building a domestic aircraft IL -114-300 for local airlines, which is scheduled to start in the series in 2020. To date, preliminary testing of the prototype engine. "As a result we can conclude that both technically and technologically implement the project within the given timeframe," - he said. In addition, he noted that the development of "complexed" with the program on military aircraft engines for the Il-112V, as well as the creation of the engine program TV7-117V for the Mi-38, which has already been certified.

    A key project, which today sells APC - creation engine PD-14 to MS-21 medium-range aircraft. The head of the JDC noted that during the implementation of this program introduced 16 basic critical technologies, which allowed to reach the current level of engine parameters. "At present the production of experimental engines already manufactured 12 The complex of development tests, including simulated real operating conditions are confirmed stated technical characteristics of the engine.." - Shared A.Artyuhov. As part of the same project also creates a nacelle. The head of the corporation noted that previously it to develop, as a rule, remain within the competence of the aircraft developers. According A.Artyuhova created gasifier PD-14 - base. On its basis in minimum time and with minimum risk can be developed aircraft engines for different purposes: for helicopter and aircraft for civil and military applications.

    Another priority for the Russian engine - the creation of high-thrust engine of 35-40 tons to be mounted on the modern long-haul wide-body aircraft. "Currently, in the framework of research and development under this program creates the necessary groundwork, developed eight key core technologies, the infrastructure, - told A.Artyuhov - The project will significantly enhance the ability of domestic developers planes to form shape of aircraft for various purposes:. Passenger transport and military transport. "

    As part of the creation of engines for helicopters JDC today implements VC-2500PS program based on the VS-2500. As a result of the modernization of increased performance and reliability of the base engine. "The engine is implemented anti-surge protection system that provides reliable engine performance in heavy and transient conditions, the assigned resource increased by 30%", - said A.Artyuhov, recalling that in 2016 the motor type certificates obtained. VC-2500PS is ready for serial production in Russia and supplies. Today, APC continues to implement the program, increasing volumes of mass production of helicopter engines.

    In addition, within the framework of works on creation of helicopter engines there is a program for the development of a promising helicopter engine (MPE) with characteristics to reduce fuel consumption by 20% compared with the serial engine, greatly reduce the weight of the product, as well as increase its reliability and service life. According to the UEC, the engine is created using the latest composite materials, advanced technical solutions and technologies.

    Concluding his speech, A.Artyuhov noted that the successful completion of all new projects will contribute to meeting the competitiveness and attractiveness of commercial aircrafts with domestic engines. Currently, UEC has sufficient scientific and technical, production, human resources to create a domestic advanced aircraft engines. He again stressed that the main engine through the development has been the creation of gas turbine engines based on the basic gas generators. In the medium term will be the base gas generators and engines PD-14 and TV7-117. In the long term it will be added to the DD-35 and LDPE.

    Please read this excellent interview on Tu-204SM

    What is Tu-204SM?

    http://www.ruaviation.com/docs/2/2014/4/21/81/


    Tu-204SM Specs  http://www.tupolev.ru/en/civil_aviation/tu-204sm

    A rule of thumb for most aircraft is that its cost is about 3% of any additional weight carried in fuel each hour.
    25t empty translates into even more fuel needed.
    also winglets are hype and save fuel in high altitude so regional jets have no use for them.
    winglets add weight, and add lift to the wings in ground effect , while jets typically increase speed by 7-8 knots in ground effect, winglets have speed increases of 10-12 knots once power is off ,so more braking more longer thrust reverser burn- and spent fuel,
    the effectiveness of braking can be minimized unless pilots pull back on the yoke to firmly transfer weight from the nose wheel to the main gear and wings, which is not a part of normal operating procedures at many airlines, the potential for a runway overrun is more significant.
    they will be added for longrange version in some minimalist way. http://tsagi.ru/pressroom/news/2638/

    The new engine that can also be used on the Il-112 is good.

    Hopefully they can get some forward traction on this and get these aircraft into the air and operating...

    Nothing sells aircraft like proven in service performance.

    And of course a few military models will help get some Antonovs out of Russian service quicker too...
