    RED aircraft unveils Yak-18T with RED A03 engine in Gryzlovo. 

    On August 15, RED aircraft GmbH (Germany) held a presentation of the upgraded Yak – 18T aircraft equipped with the RED A03 aviation diesel engine at the FINAM-Bolshoe Gryzlovo airfield. The presentation was attended by representatives of the Federal Air Transport Agency, the Sasovsky Civil Aviation Flight School, specialized aviation specialists of the Yakovlev Design Bureau (part of the Irkut Corporation), and the Smolensk Aviation Plant.

    The main purpose of installing a new engine on an existing airframe is to demonstrate to aircraft manufacturers and operators the key advantages that RED A03 provides.

    In a statement released by the company, commercial director Jurgen Schwartz noted that compared to the traditional Yak-18T, the cruising speed of the remote-controlled aircraft has increased from 260 to almost 400 km / h. The rate of climb has also improved, and the payload has increased by more than 50%. At the same time, fuel consumption has been reduced by 20-40%, and instead of expensive aviation gasoline, aviation kerosene is used.

    The FADEC electronic engine management system allows you to separate two six-cylinder rows, each of which can operate independently. This significantly increases the safety of the engine. FADEC also stores and tracks engine data, allowing you to identify potential problems at an early stage.

    "One-handle engine management significantly reduces the pilot's workload and improves his performance. The use of an electronic engine management system has made it possible to increase operational manufacturability and safety. The use of aviation diesel reduces the noise level and toxicity of exhaust gases" – added the representative of RED aircraft.

    Putin declared the need for a medium-haul aircraft for Russia, 22.08.2021.

    Russia now needs a medium-haul aircraft to reach the Far East, President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday, August 22.

    The head of state said that Russian aviation is becoming part of the world. He cited the SuperJet 100 as an example, noting that this is a Russian product, on which, among other things, French and Italian specialists worked and worked very effectively.

    “But this, of course, is not enough, now we need a medium-haul aircraft, and it can be quite large in length, bearing in mind our territory, I repeat once again, it can generally fly from Moscow to the Far East, and this must be done”, - said Putin during a meeting with representatives of the United Russia party.

    The Russian leader also added that the creation of the MS-21 passenger aircraft was delayed by about six months due to the refusal of foreign partners to supply, but in the end it will be even better - this concerns the wing and composite materials.

    Foreign suppliers "just behaved indecently under the pretext of various non-economic issues of a political nature," Putin stressed.

    On July 19, the president announced that MC-21 aircraft will occupy a 57% share of the narrow-body aircraft market in Russia by 2030 , the remaining 43% will be for foreign aircraft.

    Earlier, on July 15, the press service of Rossiya Airlines announced that they intend to start operating the MC-21 aircraft in the summer of 2022 . The airline's director, Sergei Aleksandrovsky, noted that the MC-21 program is a priority national project in the transport industry.

    MS-21 is a family of new generation Russian passenger aircraft. They will be released in several modifications from 150 to 211 seats. Such an aircraft made its first flight in May 2017. In December 2020, the MS-21-310 took off for the first time with Russian PD-14 engines . In May, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced that Russia's competitors would not have analogues of the MS-21 in the near future.

    MS-21-300 passes airframe load tests. 

    The first flight prototype of the MS-21-300 b/n 73051 aircraft arrived at the Bolshoe Savino airport in Perm for flight tests, during which statistics on airframe loading during takeoffs and landings will be collected. This was reported at the Perm airport. 

    Before that, on August 23, the plane performed a flight to Krasnodar, and then a non-stop flight from Krasnodar to Perm.

    At the end of the test program in Perm, the aircraft will fly to Nizhny Novgorod.

    Testing of the MS-21 will end at the end of 2022, at the same time the Russian Type Certificate will be obtained. This was announced on August 23 by the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov at the International Military-Technical Forum "Army-2021".

    "It's not a planned job. At the end of next year, the entire testing cycle and certification should be completed. After receiving a certificate from our Russian aviation agency, we will start deliveries to our first commercial customers. These are Aeroflot and Rossiya companies" – he said.

    Earlier, the completion of the MC-21 certification testing program was planned for the end of 2021, and from the spring of 2022, deliveries of serial aircraft to the first operators were expected to begin.

    TsAGI conducted research on the load-bearing properties of a low-noise aircraft wing. 

    The next stage of research on a promising low-noise short-haul aircraft (BMS) has been completed at TsAGI. The Institute's specialists conducted research using a large-scale BMS half-model.

    The principal differences between the aircraft are the low-sweep wing, which provides laminar flow, and the upper location of the engines above its trailing edge. The advantages of this arrangement are to reduce drag, shield the wing from engine noise, and protect against foreign objects entering the air intakes during takeoff and landing.

    Previously, complete BMS models were tested in the TsAGI wind tunnel. Later, for greater reliability of the research, a large-scale semi-model was made, which clarified the features of laminar flow around the upper surface of the wing during take-off and landing modes with deflected mechanization in the form of flaps and Kruger flaps, which provide a decrease in landing speed.

    The next step was to refine the wing mechanization in order to bring the effectiveness of the Kruger flap closer to the effectiveness of the standard slat.

    At the final stage of the work, methods for eliminating zones of premature local separation of the air flow in the root part of the wing were studied. In order to suppress it, it was proposed to install a vortex generator on the fuselage in front of the wing. In the experiment, various positions of the vortex generator were studied, and the optimal position was found, at which the coefficient of maximum lift in the landing configuration increased by five percent. This solution allowed us to reach a level of load-bearing properties comparable to the level of aircraft with a slat.

    The concept of a promising low-noise aircraft of a new generation began to be developed by TsAGI within the framework of the federal target program "Development of civil aviation equipment in 2002-2010 and for the period up to 2015". The first studies were conducted in the transonic wind tunnel of the Institute in 2013.

    One of the main reasons for the under wing engine pod is that it makes access to the engine rather simple and easy for maintenance and work to be done on the engine.

    The An-72 with its alternative engine location was very efficient for engine air flow attaching to the wing and allowing STOL features because it is a bit like TVC a little bit, but a problem was that the location of the engines made accessing the engines more difficult and more expensive.

    I wonder what effect this modification of the engine location will have on maintenance.

    It is not that the An-72 engine location made engine maintenance impossible... I understand there was a roof hatch and the nacelles open out to give normal access to the engines easy enough, but on many airfields the platforms and vehices and equipment for working with engines are designed specifically for use on under wing engine pods so hauling up all the tools and test equipment onto the roof of the plane makes things harder and I suspect having to work with an engine above and slightly behind the wing might cause problems too.

    Here is the An-72 arrangement:

    In Russia, demand for SSJ100 aircraft exceeds supply. 

    The daily flight time and serviceability of Superjet 100 passenger aircraft is growing, and therefore airlines are lining up for them, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Oleg Bocharov said in Volgograd at an off-site meeting of the government transport commission dedicated to the development of small aviation.

    "We see that the serviceability of aircraft is growing and for the first time we are seeing a queue, almost disputes between operators for the delivery of regular aircraft, which shows the effectiveness of implementing the president's instructions at the meeting on May 12, 2020" – Bocharov said.

    The production volume of Superjets in 2021 will be 23 units, in 2022 — 18, Oleg Gulyaev, director of the Regional Aircraft branch of Irkut Corporation, reported earlier. According to him, the recipients of airliners in the next two years will be the airlines "Rossiya", "Red Wings", "Aurora" and "Azimut".

    In the past, several Superjet 100 operators have abandoned this machine. The main problem they called poorly organized after-sales service, including the lack of spare parts. This resulted in low flight coverage and made the aircraft commercially inefficient.

    The head of the UAC, Yuri Slyusar, said in June that the average daily flight time of the SSJ100 reached the level of seven to eight hours. The level of serviceability of this aircraft exceeds 80%, while the global average is 80-85%.

    "This gives an economy to airlines, ensures the competitiveness of the aircraft. Therefore, in this sense, we can say that the period associated with the passage of problems that we had on the first cars for spare parts, we have solved," — said Slyusar.

    MS-21 - digest for August-2021, 31/08/2021.

    The actions of foreign "partners" who supplied components for the construction of the MC-21 aircraft delayed its creation by five to six months. This was announced on August 22 by Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting with representatives of the United Russia party.

    He added that work on the MS-21 will be completed in the near future, and the vehicle will appear on Russian domestic routes as scheduled. The President specified that by 2030 the MS-21 will occupy a 57% share in the market of narrow-body aircraft in Russia, the remaining 43% will be for foreign aircraft.

    First of all, the president had in mind the cessation of supplies at the end of 2018 of components and materials for the production of a composite wing of an aircraft. However, in a short time, the enterprises of Rosatom mastered the production of domestic carbon fibers that meet the strength requirements and can be used in the load-bearing structures of the liner. The first serial MS-21 with a wing made of Russian PKM will take to the skies in December this year. In November, the aircraft will be transferred to the flight test shop.

    Here are some milestones for late summer 2021:

    Start of strength tests of a wing made of Russian PKM - July 2020.
    End of strength tests of a wing made of Russian PKM - end of 2021.
    Obtaining a type certificate - by the end of 2021
    Delivery of the first aircraft to the customer - end of 2021.

    Now it is already known that there will be no end of the certification of the liner and the start of deliveries this year, everything has been postponed to 2022. As has been reported more than once, Rossiya Airlines should receive the first MC-21 in the summer of next year. These dates were confirmed on August 29 by the head of the United Aircraft Corporation Yuri Slyusar in an interview with the host of the program “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin ”to Pavel Zarubin on the Russia-1 TV channel.

    “The newest Russian medium-haul airliner MS-21 will start operating regular flights as early as 2022,” said Yuri Slyusar and added that next year, customers will receive four fully finished aircraft.

    The head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov told the Zvezda TV channel about the same time frame at the Army-2021 International Military-Technical Forum: “Planned work is underway. At the end of next year, they must complete the entire cycle of testing and certification. Having received a certificate from our Russian aviation agency, we will begin deliveries to our first commercial customers. These are the companies "Aeroflot", "Russia" ".

    Barnaul network edition "Talk" reportedAugust 9, that the Altai company "Nortek" is looking for ways to supply tires for the Superjet 100 and MS-21 aircraft under the import substitution program. Now tires of the French company Michelin are installed on these aircraft.

    The company has a problem - in order to obtain the right to supply tires for domestic civil aircraft, it needs to conduct bench tests of tires - this is a mandatory requirement. But there are only three stands in the world where this could be done - in the USA, India and China. Nortek came out with an initiative to allow him to conduct tests in Asia, and in this he was supported by the Irkut corporation, but the proposal ran into an unsolvable problem.

    “The tire must be tested on a wheel rim, and it is classified as classified. Accordingly, we cannot take out the disc. That is, in fact, we have an industry that can produce tires, a center of competence, but we cannot bring it to mind due to the fact that we run into secrecy, ”said Vladimir Yakovlev, a representative of the enterprise, at a strategic session on the development of the chemical industry on August 5 in the Altai Territory.

    He said that "Nortek" came out with a proposal to include the project for installing a stand in the state program with the prospect of placing it in Barnaul. It is impossible to do this directly through the enterprise, since it is private, therefore it is proposed to use the Altai State Technical University named after V.I. I.I. Polzunov. Manufacturers have sent an appeal to President Vladimir Putin, but no decision has yet been made.

    China has begun to assemble the first sample of the Russian-Chinese CR929 aircraft. 

    Production of the first Russian-Chinese wide-body long-haul aircraft CR929 has begun in China. This was reported on Thursday by the information portal "Sina Tsaizin".

    According to the publication, preliminary preparatory work on the creation of the CR929 has been completed, and specialists have begun assembling the first sample of this aircraft.

    The basic version of the CR929-600 will be able to carry 280 passengers at a distance of up to 12 thousand km. The family of aircraft will also consist of a modification with an elongated (CR929-700) and a shortened (CR929-500) fuselage. Its first test flight is scheduled for 2023.

    The project of creating a Russian-Chinese wide-body long-haul airliner has been implemented since 2014. The aircraft is being developed by a joint venture of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) and the Shanghai - based Chinese COMAC company Craic. The Russian side is responsible for the wing consoles, center section and wing mechanization, the Chinese side is responsible for the fuselage, fairing and horizontal and vertical tail.

    They want to start testing before the PD-35 will ready. Probably the first prototypes will use Rolls-Royce or GE engines. Maybe even the first production ones will be with these engines

    even with the sanctions, a part of the MC-21 will have Pratt and Whitney engines

    For the CR929 I imagine they will use a variant of the GEnx or the GE9x (or alternatively a variant of the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000/ Trent 7000)

    Experimental electric aircraft "Baikal" may appear in three years. 

    The LMS-901 Baikal aircraft with an electric motor may appear in 2024, two or three years after that, its mass production is not excluded, such a forecast was made by the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov during the Eastern Economic Forum in an interview with RIA Novosti.

    "As an experimental vessel, I think it will be able to take to the air in 2024. And it will be possible to talk about mass production after 2026-2027" – the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade said, answering the corresponding question of a journalist.

    Earlier, the chief designer of the Ural Civil Aviation Plant for Aircraft Construction, Vadim Demin, said that on the Baikal aircraft, which is being developed by UZGA, in the future it is possible to place an additional power unit (DSU) consisting of two small-sized electric motors with folding screws on the wing consoles. Another option is to install an electric motor on a free turbine under the hood, so that, in case of a failure of the main engine, the free turbine can rotate together with the propeller.

    Two DSU electric motors of 100 kW each and batteries weighing 200 kilograms make it possible to fly for about 45 minutes. For an electric motor integrated into the engine, it will be necessary to conduct a full test cycle.

    The Ministry of Industry and Trade plans to make the LMS-901 "Baikal" aircraft a 14-seater.

    A parachute will be used as a rescue device on the Baikal aircraft, which will provide a high level of safety in the event of an emergency and will increase the number of passengers from nine to 14. This was stated by the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov in an interview with RIA Novosti on the sidelines of the WEF-2021.

    The parachute system for this aircraft was developed jointly by the Technodinamika holding and the Ural Civil Aviation Plant. The system will ensure 100% safety of the LMS-901 aircraft, the minister explained.

    "Why is this being done? Because under today's certification rules, an aircraft of this size with one engine can carry only nine passengers, we will be able to accommodate fourteen passengers there absolutely calmly" – he said.

    According to him, it will be a commercially more efficient aircraft. "But we will need to make changes to the flight certification rules, so we will convince our colleagues from the Ministry of Transport and the Federal Air Transport Agency" – Denis Manturov added.

    The T-500 aircraft is equipped with a high-speed parachute system. The BPS is designed to rescue an aircraft with a pilot and cargo in extreme and emergency situations. The T-500 aircraft was demonstrated in the flight program of the MAKS-2017 air show.

    The Chinese publish photos of allegedly testing the shock struts of the main landing gear of the Russian-Chinese wide-body long-haul aircraft CR929 (SHFDMS). In 2018, Rostec reported that the Samara enterprise "Aviaagregat" of the Technodinamika holding completed research work on creating the appearance of the chassis of a wide-body long-haul CR929 aircraft.

    Borisov: plans to create a twin-engine version of the upgraded Il-96 remain. 

    Plans to create an upgraded version of the Il-96 with two engines instead of four remain, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov told reporters on the sidelines of the Tyumen Oil and Gas Forum.
    "Yes, it [the twin-engine version of the aircraft] is considered if there is work done on the PD-35 engine on time" – Borisov said – "You know that the PD-35 engine is being developed in Perm as part of the creation of a Russian-Chinese wide-body aircraft. The presence of this engine will give a new life to the aircraft (Il-96). This is one of the branches on which we, apparently, will go. The aircraft is very successful from the point of view of the overall design." The Deputy Prime Minister noted that the aircraft is now equipped with four PS-90A engines. Replacing the engines will require a large-scale modernization and redesign of the wing, he added.

    According to Borisov, the Il-96-300 aircraft are currently being assembled at the Voronezh Aircraft Factory, four aircraft are being built at the production site.

    Been saying it all along, Russia only needs couple of dozen wide body airliners and no matter what happens with imports or CR-929 they will always have Il-96 as a backup (in any engine version)

    This means that they are impervious to being screwed over by either USA, Euros or China
