    That is actually a good thing if they use the fact that they are related companies.... direct feedback regarding operational experience with the aircraft will benefit design and production of the aircraft and create a more customer friendly product.

    Airline industry and civilian aircraft manufacture in general are currently in the shitter worldwide so this whole mess is actually opportunity for UAC to get their house in order

    As for SSJ they really need to fully localize it already because otherwise they will never make any headway sales wise to say nothing of tech support

    Final assembly nears for initial MiG-built Il-114-300


    United Aircraft is preparing to transfer primary structures for an initial Ilyushin Il-114-300 to the final assembly line at RSK MiG’s Lukhovistsky plant near Moscow.

    The manufacturer is describing the initial aircraft as a ”prototype” being built using serial-production technologies.

    Three fuselage sections for this aircraft have been completed at the Sokol manufacturing plant in Nizhny Novgorod, where MiG fighter components are produced. They will be transferred to Lukhovitsky by the end of May.

    MiG general director Ilya Tarasenko says the company invested Rb400 million ($5.6 million) last year to prepare for Il-114 production and diversify its activities, with automated docking facilities among the new installations.

    The -300 is a 68-seat modernised variant of the Il-114 twin-turboprop. Production is being restarted to address demand for regional domestic transport, particularly in remote areas, and replace older Antonov types used on these routes.

    Fuselage panels, doors and hatches are being produced at the Aviastar plant in Ulyanovsk while the VASO plant in Voronezh is manufacturing wing and tail sections.

    VASO will build about 40% of the airframe components, says acting managing director Alexander Yarchevsky. Work is under way to produce the fin, rudder, stabiliser and elevator. Wing sections will have multiple mechanical and electrical systems fitted.

    “Preparations are underway for the production of engine nacelles of the new aircraft,” he adds. “Their assembly is scheduled to begin in June.”

    United Aircraft director of aviation programmes Sergei Kamensky says the Il-114-300 will be built “entirely from domestic components” with leading Russian manufacturers supplying systems and equipment.

    Tarasenko points out that the project is utilising digital technology to enable Ilyushin’s design bureau and production sites to operate from a “single information space”.

    Potential operators of the Il-114-300 will include not only airlines but cargo and combi carriers, as well as special-purpose companies. The type could be fitted with ski-wheels and the Il-114 will also be capable of serving airports with unpaved runways.

    Mass production of PD-35 engines, intended for CR929 and IL-96-400M, will begin in 2028


    MOSCOW, May 22. / TASS /. The serial production of the PD-35 thrust aircraft engine should begin in 2028, according to the materials of the press service of the Governor’s Administration and the Government of the Perm Territory (in the territory of the Territory there is the ODK-Perm Motors plant, the leading engine manufacturer).

    "Serial production of the engine should begin in 2028," - noted in the materials.

    In the future, on the basis of a universal gas generator, it is planned to create a family of gas turbine engines of various aviation and ground applications with a thrust of up to 50 tons.

    PD-35 (a promising engine with a thrust of 35 tons) is a project of a Russian double-circuit turbofan engine with extra-large thrust (with a takeoff thrust from 33 to 40 tons). The total investment in the PD-35 project amounted to 180 billion rubles. The head developer is UEC Aviadvigatel, the head manufacturer is UEC Perm Motors JSC. It is assumed that the engine will be installed on the Russian-Chinese aircraft CR929 and on the IL-96-400M.
