    According to the documentation posted on the state procurement website, three Tu-214 aircraft with serial numbers 44811031 (serial number 531), 44912032 (serial number 532) and 44912033 (serial number 533) are being built for the Special Flight Team (SOS) "Russia" of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation at the Kazan Aviation Plant (the branch of PJSC "Tupolev"). This follows from the cited contract of PJSC "Tupolev" with FSUE GosNII GA (Research Institute "Aeronavigatsii") for participation of the latter in "escorting a complex of certification works for three Tu-214 aircraft for the" Russia".

    Νew built Tu-214

    On December 28, 2018, Kazan reportedly made the first flight built at the Kazan Aviation Plant (KAZ) named after S.P. Gorbunov - a branch of PJSC Tupolev Tu-214PU aircraft (serial number 44811031, serial number 531, registration number RA-64531). This special-purpose aircraft control center, according to known data, is the first of the three units being built for the Special Flight Unit (SLO) "Russia" of the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation.

    Built a new Tu-214 for SLO


    As reported, at the Kazan Aviation Plant (KAZ) named after S.P. Gorbunova, a branch of PJSC Tupolev, completed the construction of the Tu-214PU aircraft (serial number 44912032, serial number 532, registration number RA-64532) - the second special-purpose aircraft-control center of three units being built under the 2017 contract for the FSBI Special flight detachment (SLO) "Russia" of the Office of the President of the Russian Federation. This aircraft made its first flight in Kazan, according to well-known data, on June 19, 2020 and became the first Tu-214 aircraft built over the past year and a half.

    On July 8, 2020, the Ulyanovsk JSC Spectrum Avia announced the completion of painting of this new Tu-214PU (RA-64532) aircraft in the livery of the SLO Rossiya.

    The previous Tu-214PU aircraft built at KAZ, and the first one under the 2017 contract for the Arctic Ocean (serial number 44811031, serial number 531, registration number RA-64531), made its first flight in Kazan on December 28, 2018 and was transferred to the Arctic Ocean in the summer of 2019.

    Recall that in March 2017, the published decisions of the board of directors (supervisory board) of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) PJSC contained information on the approval of agreements between the UAC and Rostec State Corporation for the supply of three Tu-214 aircraft with serial numbers 44811031 ( serial number 531), 44912032 (serial number 532) and 44912033 (serial number 533). At that time, all three Tu-214 aircraft with the indicated serial numbers were at the Kazan Aviation Plant in the initial stage of construction.

    Later it became known that these three aircraft are being completed in the configuration of the Tu-214PU for the SLO "Russia". The basis for the construction of these three Tu-214 aircraft for the Russia’s SLO was Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 1387 dated December 17, 2016, agreement No. UD-1401d dated December 27, 2016 on the provision of a subsidy between the Office of the President of the Russian Federation and Rostec ", an agreement of May 2, 2017 between Rostec Group of Companies and PJSC UAC and an agreement of May 31, 2017 between PJSC UAC and PJSC Tupolev. Thus, Rostec GC acts as the formal lead customer of three of these Tu-214PU aircraft at the UAC (lead contractor) for subsequent delivery to the Office of the President of the Russian Federation.

    To date, the SLO "Russia" already has 15 Tu-214 aircraft of various modifications and four Tu-204 aircraft.

    So far, in total, 32 Tu-214 aircraft have been built in this way at the Kazan Aviation Plant, and the total number of built vehicles of the Tu-204 / Tu-214 family built in the USSR and Russia since 1989, together with prototypes, amounted to 86 units.

    The first Mi-38 helicopter for the Rossiya Special Flight Squad


    During a visit on September 4, 2020 by the President of the Republic of Tatarstan R.N. Minnikhanov and the Minister of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense, Emergencies and Elimination of the Consequences of Natural Disasters, Colonel-General E.N. Zinichev PJSC Kazan Helicopter Plant (KHZ) demonstrated the first helicopter Mi-38-4 (registration number RA-14340 , presumable serial number 26004 and serial number 01-04).

    The helicopter performed by the Mi-38-4 has a multi-seat passenger cabin, not a VIP cabin. In December 2019, Andrey Boginsky, General Director of Russian Helicopters (which includes Kazan Helicopters), said that the Administrative Department of the President of the Russian Federation had signed a contract for the supply of two Mi-38 helicopters for the Russia SLO, which are to be delivered in 2020 ...

    The manufactured helicopter with registration RA-14340 is the first one built under this contract for the Rossiya SLO, and the second civil production Mi-38 helicopter as a whole. Recall that in February 2020, Kazan Helicopters deliveredof the company "Gazprombank Leasing", built back in 2019, the first civilian serial Mi-38 helicopter performed by the Mi-38-2 (with a luxury cabin) with registration number RA-14341 (serial number 26005, serial number 01-05), the operator of which the company "Russian Helicopter Systems" (RVS) acts.

    Also in 2018 and 2019, Kazan Helicopters manufactured under a contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense two experimental Mi-38T transport and landing helicopters (serial numbers 26001 and 26002, serial numbers 01-01 and 01-02, yellow side numbers "71" and "72" respectively) for joint flight tests.

    At the beginning of 2019, the managing director of Kazan Helicopters Yuri Pustovgarov said,that the enterprise "for 2019-2021 already has a firm order for 21 Mi-38s, half of them for government agencies." At the Army-2020 International Military-Technical Forum in August 2020, the Russian Ministry of Defense signed a contract with Russian Helicopters for the supply of two more Mi-38 helicopters with a high-comfort cabin.

    The first helicopter Mi-38-4 (registration number RA-14340, presumptive serial number 26004 and serial number 01-04) built by PJSC Kazan Helicopter Plant for the Federal State Budgetary Institution “Special Flight Squad (SLO)“ Russia ”of the Administrative Department of the President of the Russian Federation.

    Another Tu-214 was built


    As spotters report, in December 2020, flight tests of the built at the Kazan Aviation Plant (KAZ) named after S.P. Gorbunov (a branch of Tupolev PJSC) of the Tu-214PU aircraft (serial number 44912033, serial number 533, registration number RA-64533). Presumably, this is the third and final special-purpose aircraft - control point Tu-214PU, manufactured under a 2017 contract for three aircraft of this type for the Federal State Budgetary Institution "Special Flight Squad (SLO)" Russia "of the Administrative Department of the President of the Russian Federation.

    The first Tu-214PU aircraft built at KAZ, and the first under the 2017 contract for the AO (serial number 44811031, serial number 531, registration number RA-64531), made its first flight in Kazan on December 28, 2018 and was transferred to the AO in the summer of 2019. The second T-214PU aircraft under this contract (serial number 44912032, serial number 532, registration number RA-64532) made its first flight on June 19, 2020, however, as of the end of December, it remained in Kazan, and it is unclear whether it was still since then the SLO was transferred. Thus, the aircraft with registration number RA-64533 , which began flight tests in Kazan in December, became the second Tu-214 built at KAZ in 2020.

    Recall that in March 2017, the published decisions of the board of directors (supervisory board) of PJSC United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) contained information on the approval of agreements between the UAC and the State Corporation Rostec for the supply of three Tu-214 aircraft with serial numbers 44811031 ( serial number 531), 44912032 (serial number 532), and 44912033 (serial number 533). At that time, all three Tu-214 aircraft with the indicated serial numbers were at the Kazan Aviation Plant in the initial stage of construction.

    It later became knownthat these three aircraft are being completed in the configuration of the Tu-214PU for the SLO "Russia". The basis for the construction of these three Tu-214 aircraft for the Russia SLO was the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 1387 dated December 17, 2016, agreement No. UD-1401d dated December 27, 2016 on the provision of a subsidy between the Administrative Department of the President of the Russian Federation and the State Corporation Rostec ", an agreement dated May 2, 2017 between Rostec State Corporation and PJSC UAC and an agreement dated May 31, 2017 between PJSC UAC and PJSC Tupolev. Thus, the Rostec State Corporation is the formal main customer of these three Tu-214PU aircraft from the UAC (the main contractor) for their subsequent delivery to the Administrative Department of the President of the Russian Federation.

    To date, the Rossiya SLO already has 15 Tu-214 aircraft of various modifications and four Tu-204 aircraft.

    In total, so far, 33 Tu-214 aircraft have been built at the Kazan Aviation Plant in this way, and the total number of Tu-204 / Tu-214 family vehicles built in the USSR and Russia since 1989, together with prototypes, amounted to 87 units.

    Rossiya Airlines has increased its SSJ100 aircraft fleet to seventeen sides
    03/05/2021, 17:20 116
    As part of the implementation of the new development strategy of the Aeroflot Group, calculated until 2028, Rossiya Airlines is undergoing a large-scale expansion of its fleet from 54 to 250 aircraft and the transition to the use of mainly Russian-made equipment. Currently, the expansion of the fleet is due to Superjet 100 aircraft, and in the near future the airline will have the largest fleet of aircraft of this family.

    By mid-2020, Aeroflot had just over 50 SSJ100 aircraft and by the end of the year began handing over Superjets to its subsidiary airline. As of February 1, 2021, Russia already possessed eleven SSJ100 aircraft, and as of March 1, it had 17 such aircraft.

    On March 2, another serial Superjet 100 with serial number 95210 and temporary registration 97023 made its first flight in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. This is the 210th Superjet and the second aircraft of this type that took off in 2021. The car is intended for the Rossiya airline.

    Superjets are delivered to the Rossiya aircraft fleet in two versions of the passenger cabin layout: two-class, with 12 seats in business class and 75 in economy class, and only in economy class with 98 seats.

    On January 30, 2021, the Government of the Russian Federation issued a decree correcting the rules for the distribution of subsidies for air carriers that operate flights to the Far Eastern Federal District, Kaliningrad and Crimea. The subsidies should compensate carriers for the sale of preferential air tickets to these regions. From now on, priority will be given to airlines with the maximum number of domestic aircraft in their fleet, manufactured not earlier than January 1, 2009.

    The aviation industry believes that the new rules create advantages for the only carrier - Aeroflot, which will become the main beneficiary of state support. Such measures were lobbied by the new Minister of Transport and the former head of the airline, Vitaly Savelyev, expressed their opinion to the newspaper “Vedomosti»A representative of the aviation industry.

    The presidential administration explained that the Ministry of Transport could interpret Vladimir Putin's order, expressed at a meeting in May 2020, in its own way. In particular, then Putin pointed to the need to "fine-tune" the mechanism of state support for the aviation industry and "to make sure that support is provided as a priority to those routes where Russian aircraft are operated."

    The new Il-96-300 aircraft was built

    April 10th, 3:01

    According to PJSC United Aircraft Corporation (PJSC UAC), on April 9, 2021, the first flight of the next production aircraft Il-96-300, built at the Voronezh Aviation Plant - PJSC VASO (part of the Transport Aviation Division of PJSC "UAC" State Corporation Rostec). The aircraft is undergoing a cycle of factory tests for subsequent transfer to the customer.

    Russian presidential/government aircraft - Page 3 88514310

    The aircraft was piloted by the crew under the guidance of the commander of the 1st class test pilot of VASO PJSC, the Commander of the Order of Courage Alexander Molokostov and the 1st class test pilot of the Il PJSC, the Commander of the Order of Courage Dmitry Komarov.

    On the bmpd side, we point out that on April 9, the Il-96-300PU (M1) aircraft-air control center made its first flight with registration number RA-96024 (serial number 0024, presumptive serial number 74393203024) - the first one built at Voronezh Joint-Stock Aircraft Building company "(VASO) for FGBU" Special flight group "Russia" of the Russian Federation Presidential Administration under the contract for two aircraft of this type.

    Recall that the contractfor the construction of two additional IL-96-300PU (M1) aircraft-air control posts for the Rossiya SLO with registration numbers RA-96024 (serial number 0024, presumptive serial number 74393203024) and RA-96025 (serial number 0025, presumptive serial number 74393203025) was concluded by the UAC at the end of 2015. The delivery of the Rossiya SLO aircraft was originally planned, respectively, for July 2018 and July 2019, then the deadline for the delivery of both aircraft was set in 2020, but as a result, the first board under this contract made its first flight only now.

    Russian presidential aviation group to get new domestic aircraft

    The program of the delivery of new aircraft to the presidential aviation group has been shaped for the period until 2030

    MOSCOW, May 5. /TASS/. The Rossiya special aviation group responsible for transporting the country’s top leadership will shortly receive new domestic planes and helicopters, Rossiya CEO Konstantin Tereshchenko told TASS on Wednesday.

    "We are waiting for our aircraft pool to be replenished with two new Il-96-300 special-designation airliners and three Tu-214 passenger versions. We are also waiting for the arrival of two new Mi-38 helicopters," the chief executive said.

    The program of the delivery of new aircraft to the presidential aviation group has been shaped for the period until 2030, he added.

    No special requirements are set for the airliners of the presidential aviation group, Tereshchenko said.

    "There are general requirements for all civil aviation. These are normal serial-produced aircraft but with some additions," he explained.

    Full autonomy

    "The main requirement for the personnel and aircraft of the special aviation group is that everything must operate. Even if one seat does not recline, we frequently change the airliner and do not send it on a flight," the aviation group head said.

    "Regarding all the other airlines, they have so-called deferred faults when an airliner can be cleared for a flight with permissible malfunctions that do not affect flight safety. This is not the case in our aviation group and absolutely everything must operate well," Tereshchenko stressed.

    Another mandatory rule is to provide maintenance for the aircraft, using the aviation group’s own staff. For this purpose, the aviation group has a staff of technicians, he explained.

    "We must work like a submarine in its full autonomous mode to ensure that no other persons can touch our aircraft," the chief executive said.

    Russian presidential aviation group

    The Rossiya special aviation group of the Russian presidential administration is responsible for the aircraft of the country’s president, the president-elect, the prime minister of Russia, the speakers of the State Duma and the Federation Council, the heads of the Constitutional and Supreme Courts, the Prosecutor General, the chairman of the Investigative Committee, the head of the Kremlin administration and the Russian foreign minister.

    The history of the Rossiya special aviation group dates back to 1956 when the USSR’s top officials changed military planes flown by Air Force pilots for airliners of a special-designated air team set up within Aeroflot at Moscow’s Vnukovo Airport. The team was subsequently called Separate Aviation Group No. 235. The state transport company Rossiya was established on its basis in 1995 and a special-purpose aviation group subordinate to the presidential administration was spun off from it in 2009.

    The Russian presidential special aviation group is celebrating its 65th anniversary on May 5.

    Fine example of why the cult of capitalism is such BS. The whims of some oligarchs are paramount while national interests are thrown under
    the bus. The purpose of a country is not to service the needs of some clique of owners, but the vast majority of "proles". If you claim to
    love democracy, then you cannot refute this point. But westerners are brainwashed with love for oligarchy since these god-like individuals
    apparently bring prosperity and are pulling society into the shining utopia. Reminds me of the the equivalent BS under communism. The
    Party was the mind, conscience and honour of the epoch and always leading the country into the shining future. But that Party stabbed
    the masses in the back and threw them under the bus in 1990 with its "get filthy rich" putsch.

    A real democracy is where the population actually sets the tone. Not the fake stream media and deep state like in the USA and not like most
    of the planet where some elite makes all the real decisions. Real democracy does not exist.

    This is rather impressive since we are dealing with low volume output and in cases like Ukraine such capacity simple withers away.
    Russia has managed not to lose this capacity in the last 30 years.

    This is rather important and I see them ramping up production eventually. Glad to see this.

    Fine example of why the cult of capitalism is such BS.   The whims of some oligarchs are paramount while national interests are thrown under
    the bus.   The purpose of a country is not to service the needs of some clique of owners, but the vast majority of "proles".   If you claim to
    love democracy, then you cannot refute this point.   But westerners are brainwashed with love for oligarchy since these god-like individuals
    apparently bring prosperity and are pulling society into the shining utopia.    Reminds me of the the equivalent BS under communism.  The
    Party was the mind, conscience and honour of the epoch and always leading the country into the shining future.    But that Party stabbed
    the masses in the back and threw them under the bus in 1990 with its "get filthy rich" putsch.  

    A real democracy is where the population actually sets the tone.   Not the fake stream media and deep state like in the USA and not like most
    of the planet where some elite makes all the real decisions.    Real democracy does not exist.

    At least UTAir is using dozens of russian made helicopters and is buying more.
