"Superjet" received the last "knockout blow"

Superjet 100 received another fashion hit. As soon as the reputation of the “Russian news” recovered after a terrible catastrophe with numerous casualties in the suburbs of Moscow, the last foreign airline Interjet refused to operate this short-haul airliner. Mexicans diplomatically referred to the difficult financial situation, but all parties concerned are aware of the true reasons. Why did the “hope of the domestic aircraft industry" fail with such a crash, and is the same fate awaiting the MS-21?




Russia is a country of gigantic distances; some regions are difficult to access. Therefore, developed civil aviation is a prerequisite not only for economic growth, but also for the overall cohesion of the Russian territories. At the end of the existence of the USSR, in 1990, 142 million people were transported by air, in fact, the population of modern Russia. In the crisis year of 2014 - only 35 million, in the current year - 80 million passengers are expected. For comparison, in Germany, 350 million people use air transport per year, in the PRC - 600 million, in the USA - almost a billion people.

In fact, air travel is available to no more than 5-7% of our compatriots. For example, in our new “tourist mecca” - Crimea, the Russians prefer not to travel by plane, but by personal vehicles, and everyone is looking forward to the opening of the railway connection. It goes expensive by plane.

But why is the price of air tickets so high? Is this really due to the fact that the national aviation industry was ruined and we were forced to transfer to expensive foreign airliners? The answer will be ambiguous: yes and no.

Yes, our own civilian aircraft industry is in decline. We fly mainly on Boeings and Airbuses. But another thing is striking: the cost of a flight on a “domestic” Superjet-100 airliner is 20% more expensive than on an American or European competitor. How is this even possible in our country?

The answer is that Russia initially went along the “crooked path”, trying to restore the civilian aircraft industry. At one time, instead of the already completed Tu-334, a bet was made on the Superjet, which in fact turned out to be 80% banal designer of imported spare parts. When trying to sell the “Russian” airliner to Iran, it turned out that it was generally one fifth - American. In other words, the assembly plant in our country is totally dependent on suppliers from the USA, Canada, France and Great Britain, countries that are not too kind to Russia.

Okay, theoretically - you can gradually replace parts with your own. But it turns out that the manufacturing company GSS is corny not able to provide after-sales service. Why are Boeings and Airbus ahead of the rest, despite the fact that their planes are by no means cheap? American and European companies guarantee the delivery of any spare parts to anywhere in the world within 3 hours. As a rule, they are administered in 4-XNUMX hours.

And what about the GSS, says Oleg Smirnov, ex-deputy minister of civil aviation of the USSR:

There is no clear system for maintaining airworthiness on the part of the manufacturer; a faulty aircraft is put to the fence. A non-flying airplane is a stranglehold on the financial position of an airline. When the plane is standing, leasing payments continue to go. At "Aeroflot" almost half of the SSJ 100 does not fly.


Due to the complete insolvency of GSS in the timely servicing of purchased Superjets, the Mexican company Interjet refused its services. It is because of the endless downtime of these aircraft, with such a margin of 20%, that Aeroflot sells its tickets. That, in fact, is all.

That is, there are problems in civil aviation, but they are "solved" by choosing the initially dead end path, having swallowed billions of budget funds for this, and then serving their products through the sleeves. Since no fundamental changes have been heard in the aircraft industry, there are no guarantees that the MS-21 will not step on the same rake in the end.

    More articles should be written. Maybe it’s quicker for our president and the government to do something for ordinary people. And then our government is worried that people will live richer. They don’t know what to come up with and what tax to introduce in order not to pay or to tear off more "for air".

      In short, over 20 years of Putinism, in addition to 2 million parasite officials, with an annual budget of 1,4 trillion rubles, Russia has gained almost nothing more ... ahhh, I forgot about the "optimization" of health care and the pension "reform"!

    Tu-334 was not ready, as the author writes. He did not have an international certificate. But there were Ukrainian engines, 3 crew members, a rear layout that made the plane prone to a flat corkscrew. At the same time, the Superjet turned out to be a very successful aircraft with excellent controllability - two of its disasters in 8 years are completely the pilots' fault. Yes, its French engine does not take care of the required resource, which is why the planes are standing. And they will be replaced immediately, as soon as the PD-14 and its younger version of the PD-8 are ready. So keep clucking on.

      This is your subjective version, but in fact there was a giant cut in the budget and another curtsy for the Western “partners” ... I’m not going to talk in detail about the design of the Tu-334, but your fake about the “international certificate” and “Ukrainian engines” is simply ridiculous, not to mention the "inclination" to a flat corkscrew! You can immediately see iksperda from Ukraine ...

    According to the conclusions over the years, the aircraft itself is not bad. Logistics and elite with hatches are summed up.

      The result is quite normal, given that Russia (and the USSR) has never built competitive civilian aircraft, and after the 92nd year it almost completely lost its aircraft industry. Nevertheless, superjets fly, including in Mexico and even today, these minutes: from San Jose del Coba to Toluca. Board number XA-VAS - this is his third flight today.

    After reading the source, I began to wait for the articles of Mr. Marzhetsky, well, he could not miss such a chance to copy. About promising 336 with Ukrainian engines, about downtime and unprofitability of superbudgets, about backward Russian technologies, in general - a standard set.
    About the fact that, finally, the design of digital aircraft and serial production began, two hundred built Superjet 100 aircraft are not three dozen AN-148s, and that the share of domestic parts has doubled over the years, which means downtime They are mainly due to the wonderful joint Russian-French engines, which they hope to replace in a couple of years, Sergei does not remember, because this contradicts the laws of the genre, and here such an opportunity to spoil, and even spit on the MS-21.

    What can be the connection between the aviation industry and the development of airlines? Many countries with excellent airlines do not produce aircraft at all. This is a completely different business.
    And why does the author think that the supply of spare parts from the USA and the EU is a problem? Was there any precedent for refusal due to politics?
    And most importantly, why did he call subsidizing aircraft production “originally a dead end”? And if everything would work out, what would you write? "Initially the right way"? And if the author knew that this would happen, why didn’t he tell anyone?
    It is clear that bureaucratic ideas are being made through our ass, but this does not mean that this is the wrong way. And the article ... either I, or the author writes nonsense.

    Walking will overpower the road, but crawling through it! Or maybe the Americans will collapse tomorrow and there will be no one to sanction their ambition. Engines are needed locally from gram traction to multi-ton with automation. The people will adapt the range of engines: for summer cottages it is necessary to adapt automation, for greenhouses ....

    You are so strange and all of you are contradictory: Poghosyan, then, only obscene? Why, if the Superjet is so good?
    Joint engines with the French, therefore, is no longer a super-project, but what if it turned out to be crap? Hope to replace them? I also hope for a lot in this life, that they will replace me, we will write about it.
    Designing with digital technologies for the Superjet Boeing initially did, if not in the know.
    The share grew. components grown? Do you credit the heroic pace of raking up the tricked Mr. G., or what? If this has to be done at the state expense, then perhaps sending the article is correct that the project initially went the wrong way?
    MS-21 no one spat out, by the way.

      At 2007 prices, the cost of foreign PKIs was 50-60%, for today, given the sharp change in the exchange rate - more, despite the decline in imported components. At the time of designing the aircraft, the financial and economic leadership was struggling with the paroxysm of the “mutually beneficial international division of labor,” the words “unfair competition” were not taken seriously there.

    At that time, Ukrainian engines were really a problem? And what, today the Russian-French engines for the Superjet - is that it? Certificate could be obtained. Modify the carcass.

      And what would we do with Ukrainian engines in 2014 with the Tu-334 fleet, say, 200 aircraft? What does demagogy have to do with it? And the three crew members do not bother you? All this is minus profitability. International certificate is not a problem? You tell the developers of PD-14, who announced a tender to bring this engine to international requirements. Let's see how MS-21 is certified. To the guardians of the Tu-334 - look at the Tu-204: it seems to be a good airplane (our engines, layout like B and A), and almost no one started flying on it.

    People, more or less distinguishing a wing from a tail, have been twisting their fingers at their temple for about 10 years. Yes, but why did you decide that the Tupolevs would have portrayed something better, these gentlemen didn’t even move their asses to apply for a tender, where they distributed budget money for the plane.

    The Mexican company just went broke. She was not even able to buy spare parts for cars. Some of the cars were gutted for spare parts.
    And all sorts of petty liars began to trim the source, as it suits them.

    Everyone writes that the aircraft is 80% of imported parts and, to put it mildly, GSS is very poorly serviced due to a lack of spare parts. What prevents ordering more? And look at the keyword "import" - and everything will become clear, sanctions and non-competitive methods of struggle from there work against the Russian project, because, for the captured segment of the market, Boeing and Airbus will bite anyone. And when buying a ticket for SSJ at the ticket office, you need to understand that these + 20% will go there again - abroad.
