    To be precise most of those are either intentions to buy or options converted into firm buys.

    So not explicitly new, but still good.

    On top of the good news of several dozen orders turning firm, the 28th serial Superjet flew. It is the 11th plane to make first flight this year.

    I hope Tu-204SM and MS-21 win big order specially the Tu-204SM.

    They said yesterday Tu-204SM has a potential sale order of 150 aircraft , not sure if they made those figures out of thin air.

    MAKS: Russia lifts veil on PD-14 demonstrator, latest engine technology

    Russia's answer to the latest turbofan engines for single-aisle aircraft from CFM International and Pratt & Whitney was on public display for the first time at the MAKS air show.

    Engine manufacturer Aviadvigatel unveiled the technology demonstrator - bearing serial number 100-01 - of the PD-14, the proposed alternate powerplant for Irkut's in-development MC-21 narrowbody.

    Although Aviadvigatel has previously displayed scaled mock-ups of the engine, the MAKS show marks the first time the manufacturer has shown off the real example of Russia's latest engine technology.

    Russian Civil Aviation: News - Page 21 GetAsset

    The engine was displayed with a 1.9m (75in)-diameter inlet fan composed of 18 blades made from a titanium alloy. The fan diameter provides a bypass ratio of 8.5:1, which is significantly larger compared with previous Russian engines, but still slightly below the 10:1 bypass ratio achieved by the CFM Leap-1A or the 12:1 ratio of Pratt & Whitney's PW1400G.

    The latter is the baseline engine selected by Irkut to power the MC-21 at service entry in 2017, but the PD-14 is being pursued as an indigenous option.

    Aviadvigatel acknowledges the PD-14 would also provide a new core that could be developed into an engine it calls the PD-18R, which would feature a fan-drive gear system similar to the PW1400G.

    Although the PD-14 display at MAKS revealed that Aviadvigatel has not yet adopted CFM's composite fan blade technology, the Russian manufacturer is catching up in other ways.

    The first-stage high-pressure turbine of the Russian engine was shown with 3D aerodynamic shaping and advanced interior cooling channels, which are hallmarks of all modern Western engine designs.

    Sorry... what?

    Judging the fan diameter and bypass ratio as if they determine performance?

    WTF?

    The ratio of air being sucked through the engine that bypasses the hot section and the air that goes through the hot section is a very amusing way to determine sophistication of performance.

    A bit like GDP...

    Looks like big deal is in the works to build at least 50 Q400s in Russia too.

    Good for the country all in all.

    MAKS: Rostec reveals pricing and new variant for light utility aircraft

    Russian industrial conglomerate Rostec has revealed the pricing for two new commuter and utility aircraft it has agreed to develop with Austrian manufacturer Diamond Aircraft.

    At June's Paris air show the companies signed a memorandum of understanding to develop a majority-composite 19-seater.

    Rostec has now priced the aircraft - targeted as a replacement for Russia's fleet of Antonov An-2s and Let L-410s - at Rb120 million ($3.62 million).

    The conglomerate has also revealed that plans with Diamond include developing a second aircraft type in the family - a nine-seater with a list price of around $2.41 million at current exchange rates.

    Scale models of both aircraft were displayed for the first time at the MAKS air show outside Moscow.

    The display depicted plans to begin the collaboration with Diamond building the entire first 19-seater in Austria. That will be followed by shifting the manufacture of some components to Ekaterinburg-based Ural Works of Civil Aviation, as a prelude to migrating full assembly of the aircraft and diesel turboprop engines to Russia, Rostec says.

    Both companies intend to complete airworthiness certification of the 19-seater in 2016.

    Russia currently builds no light utility aircraft for the commercial market despite ample demand, especially in the country's remote north and east.

    Rostec describes the new aircraft family as optimised for operations in arctic conditions, including the ability to land on the ground or - by attaching skids or pontoons - snow or water.

    It looks like news on Beriev's new line of amphibious aircraft hasn't been posted here yet:

    http://voiceofrussia.com/news/2013_08_29/Russia-and-Italy-to-establish-joint-production-of-BE-103-and-BE-112-amphibious-aircraft-Rosoboronexport-8181/
    Russia and Italy to establish joint production of BE-103 and BE-112 amphibious aircraft - Rosoboronexport

    Russian state-owned arms trader Rosoboronexport signed five new aircraft contracts with its Italian partners during the MAKS-2013 international air show in the town of Zhukovsky outside Moscow on Thursday, a Rosoboronexport spokesman said.

    "One of the agreements paves the way to the establishment of a joint venture to produce the new modification of the [Beriev] Be-103 amphibious airplane, which is used by special operations forces," the spokesman said.

    The new joint venture will include Rosoboronexport, Selex Electronics System S.p.A a Sinmeccanica and "OMA Sud S.p.A".

    Another document is "intended to create the conditions needed to jointly manufacture new Be 112-type light amphibious airplanes [up to 20 seats in the passenger version], which will be used in maritime patrol, humanitarian and other missions," he said.

    This joint venture will be established by Rosoboronexport and OMA Sud S.p.A.
    On the whole we are in for a very interesting time in Russian civil aviation.
    The volatile 90s-era of unsellable aircraft & paper projects is fast receding; being replaced with a host of new projects.

    Almost all of these new majors feature partnerships with international firms:

    Be-112
    Rostech - DAI light aircraft project
    Sukhoi Superjet & pals (LR/Superjet-NG/SBJ)
    MS-21
    Frigate Ecojet
    An-148/158
    Il-112 civil cargo and/or passenger version
    Wide-body passenger aircraft project with China
    Super-heavy helicopter project with China
    Mi-38
    Ka-62
    Kazan Ansat
    Russian Helicopters - Agusta-Westland 2.5 ton helicopter

    + New, current and prospective light plane/helicopter production:

    Elitar 202 & Sigma
    MAI-223 Kityonok
    M-12 Kasatik
    Hydroplane Tsikada & Corvette
    MVEN Farmer-2
    AeroVolga LA-8/Chaika-L6 series
    Aviatik Alliance Aleks-251
    Discovery 201
    Rostek light utility aircrafts
    Technoavia Rysachok
    Be-103
    Avia-Proyekt AP-55
    Berkut-VL
    HeliWhale Afaline

    + Steady ekranoplan revival, as well as other exotic platforms (aerostats?):

    Burevestnik-24
    Orion-20
    Sterkh-10
    AMS-400 Odyssey
    El-7 Ivolga
    Aquaglide-5

    + The foreign fixed-wing and helicopter models that are being set-up for production in Russia:

    Agusta-Westland 139
    L-410
    Bombardier Q400
    Parts and R&D for planes made in other countries like the Boeing 787 Dreamliner

    + Of course modernised versions of Soviet-era or 90s Russian designs, that will be in production until phased out by newer designs, although several may carry on for decades yet:

    Yak-54
    An-3T
    An-140
    An-70
    Tu-204/214
    Il-476
    Il-96
    Be-200
    An-124
    Mi-8/17/172
    Mi-26T3
    Ka-32
    Ka-226

    + Modernisation & refurbishment of even older designs. Even rebuilt An-2s, Mi-2s much less Il-76s, An-72s are having a roaring trade.

    + Civilian UAVs, airships, autogyros, ultralight trikes & other niches

    I think the Russian civil aircraft industry has a colossal future ahead of it; with so many perspective & promising models. I'm most worried about where we'll get the engineers and the talent for all this.

    TR1 wrote:"to achieve a 10% share in the world civil aviation market and more than a 50% share in the domestic market by 2025;"

    Even this is very optimistic and unrealistic IMO.
    Doesn't look all that unrealistic anymore if even half this shit gets built Very Happy

    Of course all of them succeeding is just unrealistic; some are direct competitors while others will have to die anyway to let the more perspective ones prosper.

    But the sheer number of projects, R&D, investment and production volumes being set up are very encouraging.

    Accord 201 has been renamed Discovery 201 btw.
    It is like the 2nd or 3rd plane in post Soviet Russia to get certification! Pretty big achievement for the little bird.
    They are working on a bigger follow up already.
