    United Aircraft Corporation to receive $21 mln for upgrade of Il-96-400M production

    To improve production, sounds like retooling the factory with improved systems to allow cheaper and faster production.

    Add some more money to replace some materials for lighter composites and performance could dramatically improve.

    Of course at the end of the day some new more efficient engines would also make all the difference... and I suspect that will actually be a priority because the An-124s need new Russian engines too as the Ukrainian engines need to be replaced.

    OAK estimated the investment in the 75-seat Sukhoi Superjet in 50 billion rubles

    Moscow. August 15. INTERFAX.RU - PJSC United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) estimates investments in the creation of a 75-seat version of the Sukhoi Superjet aircraft at 50 billion rubles.

    "Investments in such development and testing could amount to about 50 billion rubles, " UAC head Yury Slyusar said in an interview with Vedomosti .

    "In general, we are working to increase the share of Russian components in the SuperJet family, and this is not just import substitution, it's also repricing - we are achieving a more attractive price through key decisions, replacing a number of systems," he added.

    The existing basic version of the SSJ-100 accommodates from 98 to 103 seats. The aircraft is able to cover a distance of 3 to 4,500 km. Earlier this year, the aircraft manufacturer Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCA, part of the UAC) announced its intention to produce a 75-seater car with a range of flights of 1.5-2 thousand km: its interest was made by the S7 group (Siberia Airlines "and" Globe ").

    In March, the newspaper Kommersant, citing sources, reported that President Vladimir Putin supported the idea of developing a reduced version of the aircraft and agreed to allocate 85 billion rubles from the state budget for the project.

    The SSJ-100 is designed and manufactured by the GSS with the participation of the Italian machine-building holding Leonardo-Finmeccanica. Now the planes are in operation at Aeroflot, Gazprom Avia, Yakutia, Yamale, IrAero, Azimut, the Russian Ministry of the Interior, the Emergencies Ministry, Slo Russia, Rusgejte, as well as the Mexican Interjet, the Irish CityJet , Royal Thai Air Force and state structures of Kazakhstan.

    Any updates about the status of mi-38s? I know it is cheaper to procure mi-8 or 17s but mi-38 is supposedly the next generation successor of those choppers and i think today is the right time for Russia to introduce new aircraft models to replace old ones.

    First several military helos are currently being assembled for state trials. It's moving along.

    100 new SU 100 for Aeroflot?

    Apparently yes:

    Aeroflot to sign contract for purchase of up to 100 SSJ-100 aircraft

    http://tass.com/economy/1020778

    ....At the end of August, Aeroflot announced that it plans to receive another 50 SSJ-100 aircraft in the coming years, in addition to its fleet of 50 Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft. In addition, another 50 MC-21 aircraft are expected to be delivered. Aeroflot was also considering the possibility of additionally increasing the fleet of domestically manufactured aircraft......


    Looks like they are waiting till that forum in Vladivostok to sign the papers. If this is any indication of future purchase pattern it bodes well for MS-21 (also 50 ordered so far).

    Things are moving in the East, such big contracts are not signed every day. Very well done, this will ensure development and consolidation of the production lines for many years thumbsup

    Borisov: the cost of the program to create the MC-21 until 2025 will be about 465 billion rubles

    The Vice-Premier added that the total volume of deliveries of the airliner will leave about 870 aircraft

    IRKUTSK, September 12. / TASS /. The total cost of the project to create a passenger aircraft MS-21 to 2025 will be about 465 billion rubles, said Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov.

    "This project, important for the development of the country's industry, is being implemented with the support of the state, and the total cost of the project will be about 465 billion rubles by 2025," he said at a meeting at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant on Wednesday.

    He recalled that for the MC-21, a new type of engine, PD-14, was created and is being certified.

    In August, President of the United Aircraft Corporation Yuri Slyusar in an interview with the Vedomosti newspaper said that the program for the technical re-equipment of enterprises participating in the MC-21 program would amount to approximately 100 billion rubles.

    Scope of supply
    Borisov noted that the total volume of deliveries of the Russian airliner МС-21 is planned at the level of about 870 aircraft, more than half of them will be delivered to Russian carriers.

    "We have already formed a starting portfolio of 175 firm orders, all advance payments have been made for all firm contracts, and about 870 aircraft are planned for delivery, of which more than 50% will be supplied to Russian airlines," he said.

    Borisov specified that serial shipments to customers should begin in 2020.

    About MS-21
    MS-21 is a medium-range aircraft being developed. It is planned to produce two versions of it: MS-21-200 (from 132 to 165 places) and MS-21-300 (from 163 to 211 places). It is also planned to create a version of MS-21-400, which can accommodate up to 250 people.

    Currently, the aircraft MS-21-300 is being developed, and at the end of May 2017 it made its first flight. The first shipments of the liner, as well as the receipt of the type certificate and the start of mass production are planned for 2019.

    All down to some genius in Washington who decided it would be a good idea to turn on Russia and load up on sanctions. Never expecting the strength of resolve of the Russians to do something about it.

    This will cost Boeing/Airbus and hundreds of subcontractors dear and kickstart a huge upsurge in Russian manufacturing most of which one suspects will be state funded/owned so no more western banksters or Russian oligarchs sucking the profit lifeblood out.

    Russia and Iran will discuss the delivery of SSJ-100


    Moscow. 12-th of September. INTERFAX.RU - Russia and Iran continue to discuss a contract for the supply of Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft, the head of the United Aircraft Corporation Yury Slyusar told Interfax.

    "We are working in this direction, we are discussing with the Iranian companies, but so far I can not report on some kind of contract at this stage," Slyusar said.

    According to him, the parties are eager for a quick deal.

    "For them (Iran - IF), it is necessary to reduce the number of American components to below 10%," the head of the UAC said.

    In April, it was reported that Sukhoi Civil Aircraft JSC (Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, part of PJSC UAC) "on the fields" of the EurasiaAirshow air show signed two framework agreements on intentions to supply 40 Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft to Iran in the RRJ-95R version.

    Yes it looks like a multi industry screw up by the US. It will also be interesting to see if Russia goes this alone, which it could, or as part of a co-ordinated Russian/Chinese commercial aero industry as many of the skills and production facilities needed are underway or starting up in China.

    Russia needs to start thinking what, apart from consumer stuff, it can buy off China to balance the huge flow of incoming Yuan after the end of 2019 when gas sales, not priced in $, increase dramatically.

    I dont think it will be a binary solution. Part will be coordinated, part will be only with Russian participation and part/perhaps also competing. As for Reminbi is there anything that is not made in China? ;-)

    All down to some genius in Washington who decided it would be a good idea to turn on Russia and load up on sanctions. Never expecting the strength of resolve of the Russians to do something about it.

    Perhaps the memo that mentioned that Yeltsin is no longer in charge in Russia didn't get read out loud for the slower US officials...

    Just a few years of being able to control Russia and they think they can still do it now...

    To be honest I think the world needs this... we needed an alternative to the west and the US, and I look forward to Russia and China and other countries stepping up and becoming big enough boys to be allowed a say.

    I think there are a lot of areas that Russia and China can cooperate, which will stop some unnecessary competition between them, and increase the market for their products at the same time.
