Russia completes the first modernized IL-96-400

Russian aircraft manufacturers are moving on to the next stage in the process of creating the first modernized IL-96-400 passenger plane.

As follows from the message on the UAC website, the first flight prototype of the Il-96-400M passenger plane was handed over to the final assembly workshop:

The first flight prototype of the IL-96-400M aircraft was handed over to the final assembly workshop. Currently, the docking of the fuselage and wing consoles is completed. The next step is the installation of aircraft control systems and the installation of the interior.

The company was assured that the work on creating a new passenger aircraft was proceeding on schedule and the prototype assembly would be completed by the end of 2020, after which ground and flight tests would begin.

The designers claim that the IL-96-400M airliner will be assembled from domestic parts, and PS-90A1 engines of domestic production will be used as the power plant.

The electronic filling of the liner will also be from domestic equipment that meets the current and future requirements of the international aviation authorities for navigation, surveillance and communication systems.

Recall that the basis of the IL-96-400M is a Soviet and Russian passenger wide-body aircraft for medium and long-haul airlines, designed at Ilyushin Design Bureau in the late 1980s.

    I still do not understand why the hell all these MCs and Superjets were needed. After all, there is a wonderful and domestic IL-96.

      Then, that it was already obsolete in 90, do you want to drive a car from the 80s or still a modern one?

        Fly on a modern superjet and take a revolver with one bullet right away), and I’m better on IL. As, however, on Airbus 321. Reliability is above comfort.
