    UAC is working on developing maintenance network globally for MS-21.

    This is not something that they neglected even though it is not covered as much in the media.

    So they are getting close to the 400 order range. Very impressive, for Sukhois first civil aircraft. Austin is right, break even was 180 (aircraft and engines) so the next 200 aircraft is just icing on top of this cake.

    Anyway, as I mentioned before, the government is looking at setting up a cheap regional airline company and they will order specifically SSJ's. I imagine they will for MS-21 as well.

    I think they are hard and soft orders , Last time Putin mentioned Superjet had an order of 150 aircraft

    But even I am looking for this data on actual order of Sukhoi Superjet .seems hard to find

    Italian aerospace firm Leonardo has cut its shareholding in the SuperJet International joint venture to a minority.

    SuperJet International is responsible for selling the Russian-built Sukhoi Superjet 100 to Western markets and offering aftersales service for the type.

    Leonardo, which formerly held 51% of the Venice-based venture, confirms its current stake is just 10%. It also confirms the 90% majority is owned by the "other shareholder" in the venture, namely Russia's United Aircraft, through its Sukhoi arm. Leonardo had formerly been a partner in Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, which manufactures the Superjet 100, but last year revised its shareholding agreement with Sukhoi.

    This agreement involved Leonardo's exiting the production programme by selling its minority share of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft to the Sukhoi holding. Leonardo states, in its annual report for 2016, that the revised agreement also "entailed the acquisition of control by the Russian partner over SuperJet International".

    No financial terms have been disclosed. But Leonardo says: "The transaction also entailed an agreement on the repayment and rescheduling of... SuperJet International's debt to [Leonardo], backed by specific bank guarantees."

    Leonardo categorises SuperJet International as having "left the scope of consolidation" following the shareholders' agreement.

    S7 plans to purchase 17 Embraer aircraft to the end of the year


    Подробнее на ТАСС:
    http://tass.ru/ekonomika/4243473


    I am wondering why does S7 not purchase SSJ-100 in LR configuration instead of Embraer ?

    They need to streamline purchase and if Russian option is available just forbid any Russian airlines to buy foreign aircraft

    Corruption of the private sector. Can't stop them unless you want to hurt investment opportunities. Hence why they are aiming at creating small regional airliners to support local made jets.

    Don't know why they purchase embraer jets. It was like my air Canada flight, flying an embraer and not a bombardier jet.

    Embrace 170 is also more expensive than SSJ-100 LR. So I wonder if Russian authorities are going to eventually approach and ask as to why they won't purchase it? Its more efficient than the Embraer, cheaper, and mostly domestically made. So there must be something else.

    It should also be entirely illegal to obtain a suitcase of money to make a decision.

    Unless Embraer is selling them at a loss, which is something Bombardier does.

    Embraer E-170 and SSJ-100 may belong to same class but are not entirely compatible.

    On average E-170 carries 20 passengers less than SSJ-100 but has roughly 800km longer range.

    That and delivery date probably affected decision making.

    Remarkable thing about this photo is that it could have been taken over much of northern Scandinavia.

    The fuselage is being propped up by the orange framework. The landing gear are not fully extended.

    Scratch my previous post.

    There is zero issue here, look at the A320:




    The bottom of the engines is aligned with the wheel axels. Looks to be identical to the clearance of the MC-21.

    Russia to begin flight tests of new multirole helicopter

    The Ka-62 is an advanced multirole helicopter which is being developed by the Kamov design bureau on the basis of the Ka-60 military helicopter



    MOSCOW, May 16. /TASS/. The flight tests of the new Kamov Ka-62 medium-class multirole helicopter will begin this year, Director of the Aviation Industry Department at Russia’s Industry and Trade Ministry Sergei Yemelyanov said on Tuesday.

    "This year, we expect it to make its first full-fledged flight. Last year, it performed a hovering test and this year a full-fledged flight and the beginning of flight trials are planned," Yemelyanov said in reply to the relevant question.

    According to him, marketing work is under way to search for prospective buyers.

    The Ka-62 is an advanced multirole helicopter being developed by the Kamov design bureau on the basis of the Ka-60 military helicopter. It has been developed to perform a wide range of operations, including the transportation of passengers, rescue efforts and works in the interests of the oil and gas industry. The helicopter can carry up to 15 people or 2.5 tonnes of cargoes.

    Russia’s advanced Ka-62 helicopter performs debut flight

    The flight lasted 15 minutes and showed that all of the helicopter’s necessary adjustments had been successfully completed

    MOSCOW, May 25. /TASS/. The flight model of Russia’s most advanced Kamov Ka-62 helicopter has performed its first trial flight over the site of "Progress" Arsenyev Aviation Company (part of Russian Helicopters Group).

    The flight lasted 15 minutes and showed that all of the helicopter’s necessary adjustments had been successfully completed, the Russian Helicopters press office reported.

    The test pilots of the Ka-62’s main developer (the Kamov Company) assessed the helicopter’s overall performance capacity and checked the operation of its basic power supply systems, onboard equipment and the engine unit.

    "Today’s flight tests have showed that we have successfully completed all the necessary adjustments of the trial model, relying on the results of fulfilling previous points of the program for putting the helicopter into service," Company CEO Alexander Mikheyev said.

    Specifically, the test pilots checked the helicopter’s stability and controllability and the operability of its basic systems and complexes, he added.

    The Ka-62 performed a 15-minute flight around a circle at a speed of 110 km/hr.

    The Ka-62 flight model got off the ground for the first time in April this year to assess its general operability and check the operation of its basic power supply systems and onboard equipment.

    As Mikheyev said at that time, the new helicopter will become a worthy supplement to the civil versions of the world’s renowned and most mass-produced Mi-8/17 chopper, "taking up the most needed niche in the category of the take-off weight of six-seven tonnes."

    The Ka-62 is designated to transport passengers, carry out rescue operations and also works in the oil and gas sector. The helicopter’s high power-to-weight ratio offers a wide range of altitudes for its operation. The Ka-62 can be used in a hot climate and it can perform flights above the sea.

    The bmpd comment. The first hovering of the first flight prototype of the Ka-62 helicopter (registration RA-00000), built at the PJSC "Arsenyev Aviation Company Progress" named after N.I. Sazykin "were produced in Arsenyev on April 28, 2016. Thus, the program of the Ka-62 helicopter, already already record-breaking in terms of its long life (started as early as the late 1970s as the B-60), continues to move very slowly.

    This will definitely be a great fit for Russian airliners flying off of Moscow or St Pete to the Caucasus and central parts of the country or ex-USSR states in Central Asia. Also it will be awesome for routes to/from Europe, Near/Middle East (Cyprus, Egypt, Israel).

    A321/321neo just got competition.

    As early as now various western media is reassuring itself that the MS-21 is so much worse than its western counterparts simply because it flew 1 hour in its first flight while western planes fly 3-4 hours...

    I'm starting to believe that its not economic factors that prevent russian planes from being bought, its simply retarded prejudice. The "EVEN AEROFLOT BUYS WESTERN THEREFORE RUSSIAN IS CRAP" BS claims are enough to discourage 99% of the world's buyers because antirussian cliches will always count as truth as long as the western media has authority.

    But seriously, Russian airlines are as cancerous to Russia as the CBR, their greedy unpatriotic asses should be put in line.
