    Multi walled composites. Sounds like a nightmare really.
    I cannot remember a single project which used these things which worked out properly.

    Why not if you are out of the atmosphere? Satellites are coasting for millions of miles. If you burn the bulk of your fuel to exit the amosphere, then coast, you may be able to achieved super/hyper sonic travel with a similar efficency as a subsonic airliner.
    Satellites are in an orbit around the earth, they are not "flying". To put an object in a low earth orbit you need increadibly more energy then what you need for flying

    Supersonic is not in the same realm as these orbital travel or hypersonic pipedreams. 

    Any old tu 22 bomber built in the 80's can go supersonic. It is just about adapting it to civilian use. Which was also done by the Concorde for 27 years.

    The first start-up of the gas generator of the PD-8 engine. 17.06.2021

    The United Engine Corporation has completed the first stage of testing the PD-8 turbofan engine gas generator for SSJ-New aircraft. UEC specialists have achieved stable starts of the gas generator with successful reaching the maximum mode in accordance with the test program. A full-scale sample of the gas generator will be presented at the MAKS-2021 exhibition. This was reported in the press service of the UEC.

    The gas generator, which is called the "heart" of an aircraft engine, consists of a high-pressure compressor, a combustion chamber and a high-pressure turbine - it is this part that drives the power plant.

    As part of the tests, computational and experimental work was carried out, the optimal configuration of the gas generator was found - its electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, after which the specialists proceeded to "hot" engine starts using real aviation fuel, which were successful.

    PD-8 is the "youngest" in the line of aircraft engines, the first of which was PD-14. It is intended to replace the French-Russian SaM146 power plants on SSJ100 aircraft, as well as the D-436TP manufactured by the Ukrainian Motor Sich JSC on Be-200 amphibious aircraft.

    The PD-8 gas generator was assembled and installed on the test bench in May. The tests made it possible to experimentally confirm the correctness of the design solutions laid down. “The experience gained will be taken into account in the manufacture and testing of the following gas generator samples, as well as prototypes of the PD-8 engine,” said a representative of the aviation cluster of Rostec State Corporation.

    The PD-8 engine is being created by the broad cooperation of UEC enterprises for the updated version of the Superjet 100 - SSJ-New, which will feature a high level of import substitution. In the design of the power plant, technologies were used that were developed during the creation of the PD-14 engine, which is intended for medium-haul liners.

    As previously reported, UEC is also working on the creation of the largest aircraft engine in the domestic line - PD-35 for wide-body long-range aircraft. This is one of the most ambitious projects in the Russian aircraft building industry; earlier in the USSR and Russia, engines with similar characteristics were not created.

    New MS-21 final assembly shop launched at Irkutsk Aircraft Factory. 

    Three assembly stations have been deployed in the new MS-21 final assembly shop of the Irkutsk Aircraft Factory. At the first assembly station, the fuselage is docked, at the second, the wings are docked, and at the third, the tail is docked.

    In the near future, two more stations will be installed in the workshop, where aircraft equipment will be installed. They will provide streaming promotion. At each stage, the aircraft will be enlarged, turn into the final appearance and come out as a finished product.

    The new final assembly shop at the Irkutsk Aircraft Factory will allow the production of up to 36 MS-21 aircraft per year.

    Ravil Khakimov, General Director of PJSC Irkut Corporation, and Alexander Veprev, General Director of the plant, said that the plant has started assembling the compartments of three more MS-21-300 production aircraft, as well as manufacturing parts and components of subsequent airliners.

    There are currently five machines in various stages of assembly: four in the final assembly shop. The fuselage of the fifth is on an aggregate assembly.

    Date of start of serial production of IL-114-300 with Russian engine announced, 24.06.2021

    The Il-114-300 passenger aircraft with a Russian engine will begin mass production in 2023, said Rostec head Sergei Chemezov at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin.

    “Yes, absolutely. In 2023, there will be an IL-114 with our engine. It will go into production already, ” TASS reports .

    Chemezov noted that the aircraft is in demand from regional airlines. “The plane is very good. Already today it is in great demand, especially among regional airlines, because it can land not only on concrete, but also on unpaved lanes, and without special equipment at airports, ”added the head of the corporation.

    Earlier, Viktor Kladov, Director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy of the Rostec State Corporation, said that the production of the newest Russian civil aircraft MS-21 and Il-114-300 could be localized in India.

    The first flight of the aircraft to replace the "cornmen" was announced, July 1, 2021.

    The plane "Baikal", which is to replace the Soviet corn workers, may make its first flight in 2021. Before that, it will be presented at the International Aviation and Space Salon (MAKS) in July, said the executive director of the Ural Civil Aviation Plant, which will produce the aircraft, Sergei Fedorov.

    "Aircraft" Baikal "are at the stage of creating a prototype. We hope that this aircraft will be demonstrated at MAKS to a high degree of readiness - it is clear that it will not fly. We expect that this year, perhaps, the first flight of the aircraft will take place, ” Fedorov said to TASS.

    Baikal was developed by Baikal Engineering (a subsidiary of UZGA). Baikal will be equipped with a domestic VK-800 engine, which UZGA is developing jointly with UEC-Klimov. This aircraft is being created to increase the transport accessibility of remote regions of Russia and the development of local air lines. In January 2020, President Vladimir Putin instructed the government to consider designing and launching it into serial production.

    We will remind, in April, the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said that the start of testing a prototype of the domestic light aircraft "Baikal" is scheduled for the end of 2021.

    It's just taking so bloody long

    This is something like the 3rd model now, that's been slated to replace the An-2

    The previous one was rejected because it's composite wings were not suitable for field aerodrome conditions and maintenance in a lot of cases

    And the one before that was rejected because it was a low-cost modernization of the An-2 rather than a new design as such

    Well they need to get it right... how many times in the past have they replaced the An-2 only to find the replacements are not as cheap or simple to operate and repair in the field, or they don't have the same performance or range or payload or can't operate from the same airstrips...

    If these aircraft remain in service for half the time the An-2 has been in service that means they will be operating till about 2060... the An-2 was designed in 1947 so that is 74 years ago...

    UZGA starts assembling Diamond DA42 aircraft for full production cycle.

    As reported by the ATO.RU web resource, Ural Civil Aviation Plant JSC (UZGA) has assembled the first Diamond DA42 aircraft for a full production cycle. This was stated on July 2, 2021 by Evgeny Sergeev, director of the Aircraft division of this plant. For the first time, the company independently produced composite parts of the fuselage of this aircraft on machines supplied by the developer of the machine — the Austrian company Diamond Aircraft. Previously, UZGA carried out licensed assembly of DA42 from imported components.

    Sergeev confirmed that on July 1, the first Russian-made DA42 fuselage with the factory number 043 was sent to the paint shop, from where it will be transferred to the final assembly shop in July, and will be tested at the end of August. It will be transferred to one of the Russian flight schools, where these light twin-engine four-seat turboprop aircraft are used for the initial training of cadets.

    UZGA has been producing Diamond Aircraft under license since 2013. According to Gerald Sperl, Quality Director of Diamond Aircraft, during this time the plant assembled 100 DA42S and 150 single-engine DA40S.

    Sergeyev explained that now UZGA has switched to a full DA42 assembly cycle. This year, it is planned to assemble six such machines, and next year to increase the pace of assembly and bring it to 15 aircraft per year by 2027. In addition to the composite shop, UZGA has organized the production of wiring harnesses and seats for this model. On the training version of the DA42T aircraft, which is delivered to Russian flight schools, Garmin avionics was replaced with the Ramenskoye PKB onboard development system.

    According to Sergeyev, the localization of the engine has not yet been completed. Currently, the aircraft uses Austrian piston diesel engines Austro Engine AE 300 with a capacity of 168 hp. "A similar Russian engine will be available by 2024," he said. This will be the APD-200 engine with a capacity of about 200 hp, which is currently being developed by VIAM, CIAM and other industry institutes.

    "The prototype is promised to be delivered to our stand in 2023," Evgeny Sergeev said.

    Russia is preparing a replacement for the second most popular aircraft, 05.07.2021

    The highly demanded small aircraft An-24 and An-26 have long become obsolete. However, there is still no replacement for them. Therefore, Russia is planning to create from scratch a modern aircraft of this class - a regional turboprop TVRS aircraft. Surprisingly, a not eminent design bureau will be engaged in its development and production.

    The Ural Civil Aviation Plant plans to create its own regional turboprop aircraft TVRS. It is planned to bring it for testing already in 2024, it will take another two or three years for certification - and already in 2027, serial production should begin, said Evgeny Sergeev, director of the Aircraft division of the Ural Civil Aviation Plant.

    The time was not chosen by chance: in 2027, the operation of the An-24 and An-26 should be completed in civil aviation - and there will be simply nothing to fly in regions with a difficult climate.

    “Russia really needs this plane, because the An-24 is already more than 40 years old, and there is still no replacement for it. At one time there were attempts to purchase or, together with foreigners, start producing such aircraft, but it did not work out. In any case, foreign aircraft require adaptation to work in the difficult climatic conditions of Russia in the North, Far East, etc. Passenger An-24 and transport An-26 can land on not very good airfields, at low temperatures, on ice, snow, in a slurry of mud.

    In regional aviation we need a UAZ, which will go everywhere, and not a Western-style executive class car ”, - says the head of the branch agency Avia.ru Roman Gusarov.

    Why the creation of such an aircraft was not undertaken by the United Aircraft Corporation, but a small enterprise - the Ural Civil Aviation Plant, which previously produced foreign aircraft under license: Diamond training aircraft for pilot training and Czech L-410 aircraft?

    “At one time, the UAC decided that such small planes were not of interest to it, since they were low-margin. UAC is a large industrial structure with dozens of factories, the infrastructure of which is designed to solve another problem - the development of large liners with a high development cost. UAC focused on Boeing and Airbus, which also do not make small planes (less than 100 seats) due to low profitability. They gave them to the Brazilians and Canadians. Although now they are picking them up for themselves, ”says Gusarov.

    Therefore, if the TVRS aircraft project is successfully implemented by the Ural plant, in the future UAC can make an attractive offer to its owners and buy this plant.

    Roman Gusarov believes that the chances of this project being shot are very high. First, there is a ready-made market for this aircraft. As of the beginning of 2021, about 300 regional aircraft of the Yak-40, An-24, An-26-100 and An-26B-100 types fly in Russia alone. These are 125 units in commercial and state aviation, another 163 vehicles in the service of the Russian Ministry of Defense, the FSB and the Russian Guard.

    However, the aviation expert is sure that the potential demand for a new aircraft to replace the An-24 is one and a half to two times higher only on the Russian market. It's just that now you have to fly in those machines on which you can still do it. If there were more airplanes suitable for flight, then they would all be in demand on the market. “In the Soviet years, the An-24 and An-26 were only inferior in numbers to the maize workers,” recalls Gusarov. Therefore, the future prospects for this aircraft are enormous. These are all the countries of the former Soviet Union. According to Sergeev, the plane may be of interest to customers from Kazakhstan.

    And the chief designer of the project aircraft TVRS-44 Sergei Merenkov in an interview with "airport" in April, he said that the potential markets can become in Africa, South America, throughout Asia and the Middle East. In Syria, for example, six Yak-40s are in operation, and have long been in need of replacement.

    Secondly, Russia is able to create its own aircraft of this type. And we are talking about this, and not about the creation of an aircraft based on the Czech prototype L-610. The design is completely from scratch, says Sergeev. The plant is still studying options for the production of the aircraft. But it will definitely use the Russian TV7-117 engine.

    “We have everything to create such an aircraft. The Ural plant has already built about 250 Czech L-410 aircraft. Moreover, most of the production is localized in Russia. There our avionics, the entire control system and much more. A domestic engine is on its way. The company has acquired the necessary competencies, has brought up good specialists.

    The Ural Plant is practically before our eyes turning into a full-cycle enterprise - from the repair and production of aviation equipment and engines to the full-scale development of its own aircraft. In fact, we are witnessing the birth of a new full-fledged aircraft building company ”, says Roman Gusarov.

    The cost of the new aircraft was previously named in the region of $ 14 million. On which there was skepticism that a regional plane should not cost more than $ 10 million, otherwise it will not be in demand. However, Gusarov believes that airlines are now paying attention not to the bare price of the aircraft, but to the financial terms of its purchase: what will be the monthly lease payments, what will be the cost of repairs, replacement parts, that is, in general, the cost of owning the aircraft. With the support of the state to subsidize lease payments and other benefits, the demand for a new regional aircraft of the An-24 class will be high.

    Russia already has the Il-114, which was also created to replace the An-24. “However, this is not quite an analogue of the An-24. It is close in purpose, but there are important differences that limit the use of the Il-114. It's low wing and low engine layout, it's bigger and heavier. And I want a small plane with a high wing, so that the engine is far from the ground. Then he will be able to sit in any mud, ”the source concludes.

    Yuri Borisov: UAC plans to carry out remotorization and full digitization of the Il-96 aircraft, 05.07.2021

    The Voronezh Joint-Stock Aircraft Building Company (PJSC VASO) is the only enterprise in Russia that is capable of building IL-96 wide-body long-haul airliners. The United Aircraft Corporation plans to carry out a remotorization and full digitization of the airliner. Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov spoke about this following the results of the meeting held at the enterprise on the occasion of the transfer of the next Il-96-300 aircraft from the final assembly workshop to the flight test station.

    “The fate of this aircraft will still be very long. The UAC plans to re-motorize this aircraft, digitize it, and I think that it will surf the air spaces of our Motherland for a long time to come, ”said Yuri Borisov, speaking to the VASO team.

    “Today VASO is provided with orders from our federal agencies under the Il-96-300 program. Four machines are in production in varying degrees of readiness, and there are prospects for additional loading of the enterprise with new contracts, the Deputy Prime Minister continued. - The production of a new passenger Il-96-400M is underway. This program will allow developing the platform and modernization potential of the aircraft, as well as ensuring the development of competencies for the creation of this type of aircraft".

    Yuri Borisov also said that VASO will be loaded with the production of aircraft based on the Il-96 until 2030.

    “I believe that the most difficult times for the plant have passed. Three years ago, we were wondering what to do with VASO. Today, in my opinion, such issues are not on the agenda. Programs are defined. For at least ten years the volume of orders for the 96th car is visible", he said.

    The aircraft plant also works in the interests of the Russian Armed Forces. One of the most important tasks is to complete the development work on the creation of Il-112V light military transport aircraft and begin their serial production. It is planned to conclude a state contract for the supply from 2023 of a batch of these machines for the Russian Aerospace Forces. The task is to reach the production volume of up to 12 aircraft per year by 2025.

    “As far as we know, the plant is planning to launch an assembly line on the basis of existing production facilities,” he quotes the Deputy Prime Minister. Government websiteRF. - The troops are waiting for the Il-112V. The total demand for Il-112V airplanes in the state aviation of Russia is up to 200 units, taking into account the retirement of the aging fleet of Antonov aircraft. Rosgvardia, FSB of Russia and EMERCOM of Russia can act as additional state customers for these aircraft".

    Russia already has the Il-114, which was also created to replace the An-24. “However, this is not quite an analogue of the An-24. It is close in purpose, but there are important differences that limit the use of the Il-114. It's low wing and low engine layout, it's bigger and heavier. And I want a small plane with a high wing, so that the engine is far from the ground. Then he will be able to sit in any mud, ”the source concludes.

    They should be more conservative with their estimates regarding needs in terms of replacing the An-24 because while the Il-114 might not be ideal for different reasons there are a lot of users of An-24s for which they will be good enough so they might buy them instead... and of course there is also the high wing Il-112V with a 5 ton payload and is intended to replace the An-26... and its larger fuselage makes it better in that role too.
