And still about interjet

https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/analysis-sukhoi-offers-superjet-upgrades-to-appease-452342/



Sukhoi is offering cabin densification as well as fuel-saving winglets for Interjet's Superjet 100s, in ongoing efforts to persuade the Mexican airline to retain the fleet after it faced well-documented operational issues with the type.


"The modifications are on the table, we are committed to doing that with Interjet," SuperJet International (SJI) senior vice-president of commercial Stewart Cordner tells FlightGlobal in an interview. SJI, which is majority-owned by Sukhoi, is responsible for marketing the Superjet to Western customers.

A proposed seat densification will grow the number of seats on Interjet's SSJ100s to as many as 108, from 93 seats currently, says Cordner.

The manufacturer is also offering to retrofit winglets – branded "saberlets" on Interjet's fleet – to improve take-off and landing performance. He expects the saberlets to be certified by June 2019, with the additional seating modifications to follow in the months afterwards.

"It will certainly be in 2019 for sure," says Cordner.

Interjet said in September it will phase out "some" of the SSJ100s without specifying the number of aircraft affected, after denying a FlightGlobal report that it was in talks with Sukhoi to sell the SSJ100 fleet. It declines to comment when asked by FlightGlobal how many aircraft it plans to phase out, saying that it was being finalised.

The carrier currently operates 21 SSJ100s, with one aircraft in storage. It is not clear if all the aircraft will receive the additional seats. Interjet declines to comment, saying that "nothing has been discussed" regarding seat configuration.

The move by Interjet to ditch some of its Superjets follow a history of mechanical issues with the aircraft since it began operating the type in 2013. In early 2017, the airline was forced to ground half of its fleet, for repairs to defects on the stabiliser nodes. Earlier this year, Bloomberg reported that the airline was forced to take four SSJ100s out of service and was cannibalising them for parts to keep the remaining fleet operational.

Sources familiar with the situation say Interjet could reduce its SSJ100 fleet to as few as seven aircraft - or about a third of its Superjet fleet today. (...)

I'v heard already this" sources familiar+ almost certainly+ with high probability + we have proofs but we cannot show them. It is interesting that company close to US and CAATSA suddenly want to withdraw. Butt it is not that company which says this. Bloomberg does. Werent those same talking about death ofRussiane conomy?

BTW SJ100 has ~520 orders and ~150 deliveries. And only one "reliable sources" not company complains against it? Others are idiots or what?

perhaps MoD can order tankers based on 4 engine Il-96 to help organize production or 2 PD-35 powered one?

If you look around the world a lot of good planes were saved simply because the military bought them and paid for production facilities and upgrades when needed... it would be useful for Russian civilian aircraft companies if the Russian military started using some of their aircraft too as this would also promote Russian components to be used more extensively than they are currently...

Foreign customers of course might prefer foreign components in some areas but they can pay for that and sort out issues and problems therein created...

Twin engined Il-96s would be awesome...

There are many countries which are not in best relations to USA/EU thus Il-96 can find its niche As for tankers - clearly range/ceiling is much better than Il476, Im not sure about possibility to resume serial production tho. Serias of 4 engines tankers coul dhelp Il to build prod line, experienced team and prepare to 2 engine...

PD-14 Marks the first new Certified Engine in 2 Decades after PS-90 Series

Russian Engine for Irkut MC-21 Wins Certification

Russian civil aviation authority Rosaviatsiya has issued type certification for an indigenous engine alternative for the Irkut MC-21 narrowbody known as the PD-14, the country’s Ministry for Industry and Trade announced Thursday. A pair of MC-21 prototypes powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1431G geared turbofans now engage in flight testing, but PD-14 certification marks an important advance for the Kremlin-ordered Import Substitution program, aimed at achieving Russian independence in the commercial aviation domain.

“In fact, the PD-14 winning the type certificate means that this engine is ready for delivery and commercial operation,” said minister for industry and trade Denis Manturov in a statement. “This enables us to assert that the first turbofan engine for commercial jets in the history of modern Russia has successfully been created.”

Next, schedules call for the PD-14 program to gain validation with the European Air Safety Agency next year
. Manturov expressed a hope that the MC-21 will soon commence testing with the indigenous powerplant following the planned shipment of three operable engines by the end of this year. The minister insisted that the PD-14 and MC-21 schedules “had been synchronized.”

Compared with previous-generation Russian commercial turbofans, the PD-14 offers a fuel burn decrease at typical cruise of 15 percent, while featuring a bypass ratio of 8.5:1 as opposed to more commonly achieved ratios of 5:1 or 6:1. Its specifications call for fuel consumption comparable to that of the Pratt & Whitney PW1000G series and CFM International’s Leap family. Given that, the PD-14 claims its place as the world’s third engine purposely designed and certified for use on next-generation narrowbody jets.

Preliminary studies into a next-generation turbofan began in Russia at the turn of the century. In 2008 Vladimir Putin made the decision to provide state funding for the project. Bench testing began in 2012 and flight trials in 2015 on an Il-76 testbed. Developed under the framework of the federal program dubbed “Development of Russian Aviation Industry 2025,” the PD-14 program started with a budget of 80 billion roubles ($1.22 billion) covering development and production setup. Perm-based ODK-Aviadvigatel leads the development effort while ODK-Perm Motors performs final assembly line in the city of Perm.


The PD-14 marks the first commercial engine project executed under the umbrella of the United Engine Corporation (Russian acronym ODK), a government-controlled organization formed by the merger of Russian companies involved in powerplants, gearboxes, and other subsystems for applications in commercial and military aviation.

As a result, the government distributed work packages to ODK members to cut development and production preparation cycles. In terms of technology as well, the PD-14 represents a drastic departure from the previous generation PS-90A. Using hollow wide-chord blades for the fan and blisks in the compressor, the newer engine weighs about three tons and develops 14 tons of thrust at takeoff. Engineers designed the baseline engine specifically for the 180-seat MC-21-300, but its derivatives can power both larger and smaller airplanes. The developer announced three versions of the PD-14—the PD-14A, PD-14, and PD-14M--featuring the same 1900 millimeter fan diameter. Intended for the 150-seat MC-21-200 “shrink” variant, the PD-14A produces 11 percent less thrust and resembles the baseline model but with a compressor pressure ratio of 38:1 rather than 41:1 for higher thermal margins. The PD-14M for the Il-96-400M and MC-21-400 develops 12 percent more maximum thrust. It features an additional stage in the compressor, resulting in an increase in pressure ratio to 46:1 and a drop in bypass ratio from 8.5:1 to 7.2:1. The developer also plans a higher-thrust derivative, known as the PD-18, incorporating a geared fan for maximum thrust of 18- to 20 tons; smaller versions designated PD-7 and PD-10 feature a reduced fan diameter for various Sukhoi Superjet variants. Meanwhile, plans call for use of the PD-14’s core in the PD-12 turboshaft, and for a larger PD-35 intended to power the Sino-Russian CR929 widebody.

Supersonic passenger aircraft will be created in the Russian Federation in 2-3 years

At the moment, TsAGI is forming a response to the instructions of the President to resume the program for creating supersonic passenger airliners.

The first flight demonstrator of a supersonic passenger aircraft will be created in Russia in 2-3 years, reports the general director of the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute, Kirill Sypalo.

“The work is underway, we hope that somewhere in the near future, in two or three years, we will already receive a full-fledged flight demonstrator for this object,” said Sypalo to journalists.

He also stressed that the aircraft will be built on the basis of the technologies that have already been implemented on the Tu-144 project and in the projects of our supersonic long-range strategic bombers.

Sipalo noted that the work is being done together by the Tupolev Design Bureau. Work is underway on the selection of layouts and in the near future the project will be presented at specialized exhibitions.

Problems with the French part of the SaM146 engines on SSJ100 aircraft

Ιt is reported by the Vedomosti newspaper in Alexander Vorobyov’s material, “the SSJ100 flies a little because of engine defects. Components from the French Safran fail much faster than the manufacturer promises,” the first Russian civilian aircraft SSJ100 fails to show, primarily because problems with the engines, top managers of four airlines operating these aircraft and three people close to leasing companies buying such vessels told Vedomosti.

Claims for operational lifespan of parts is often exaggerated in the west...

Claims for airframe life for the F-16 for example are usually quite generous and impressive, but require serious limitations of operations... ie no high g operations, no operations from short air strips, no operating at or near MTOW...

It was the same for the C-17... it was supposed to be this amazing aircraft with long airframe hours life and short strip operational performance with huge loads... but when Australia got theirs they were told that the guaranteed airframe life does not count if you operate it from a short rough airstrip...
