The first IL-96-400M received wings: frames from the final assembly workshop


The first copy of the Russian wide-body long-range passenger airliner Il-96-400M received wings. This is evidenced by personnel from the final assembly shop.


It should be noted that work is being carried out at PJSC VASO, which is part of PJSC UAC, which is part of the Rostec state corporation. IL-96-400M is a significantly improved version of the serial IL-96 aircraft. It has an elongated fuselage and more powerful PS-90A1 engines. The airliner will be able to take on board from 305 to 402 passengers, providing them with a modern level of comfort during long flights.

It is specified that the IL-96-400M program is being promoted according to the schedule. In terms of reliability, safety and efficiency, the IL-96-400M will not be inferior to competitors.

At the moment, the first flight prototype is docking the main units of the airframe. The docking of the fuselage with the wing is completed. At the next stage, the tail unit is docked, the pylons are mounted. Also on board the aircraft, installation of the main aircraft systems began. The completion and transfer of the aircraft to the flight test station is planned at the end of the year.

- explained Alexander Yarchevsky - acting Managing Director of PJSC "VASO".


Il-96-400M airliners will be equipped with modern domestic navigation equipment and communications equipment, which will make it possible to fulfill existing and future requirements of international aviation authorities. The developers even formed proposals with various layout options for passenger compartments, which should satisfy the wishes of potential customers.

    The restoration of production is a wonderful thing, only questions arise in the text.

    It is specified that the IL-96-400M program is being promoted according to the schedule. In terms of reliability, safety and efficiency, the IL-96-400M will not be inferior to competitors.

    As for efficiency, I have some doubts. Four engines in an airplane after all.

    The developers even formed proposals with various layout options for passenger compartments, which should satisfy the wishes of potential customers.

    Not too early for the design?
    I mean, for example, Wikipedia states:

    Engine certified in 1992 (April 3) the same like a plane. At the end of 2006 for the Il-96-300 aircraft with the PS-90A engine A certificate of compliance with Chapter 4 of ICAO noise standards has been received.

    Last April, they said the following:

    “We expect the construction of the first production prototype of the upgraded IL-96 in 2023, the plan provides for the production of a separate prototype aircraft, which will be used for factory and certification tests,” said the UAC representative.

    It is not entirely clear how things stand with this certification itself and whether it is required at all.
    In general, the article is overly optimistic, in my opinion, of course, after reading it, it seems that new planes are about to plow the expanses of the air ocean, it remains only to coordinate the design of seats with customers.
    A year will pass, it turns out that the aircraft is being prepared for testing, then certification, then an extremely limited number of foreign customers will be informed, because it will “suddenly become clear” that 4 engines still need more kerosene, and the aircraft is more expensive than competitors, at least because of the small series.
    Malevolent comments about "promises" will appear.

    It seems to me more honest to say right away that this is just a restoration of the production of wide-body aircraft and insurance in case of refusal to supply imported aircraft, the circle of customers will be extremely limited, Moscow Region, a special flight detachment, possibly a couple to Aeroflot, from foreign countries that Boeing will not sell and Airbus. For example, Iran, Venezuela and who else will be affected by sanctions.

    In general, aircraft builders would like to wish good luck and successful work, the plane is wonderful, flew on the IL-86, I liked it. good Journalists and verbiage officials have more modesty and balance in their judgments and forecasts.

      If the oil price remains at the current level and there are no taxes on kerosene like gasoline, you can hang at least 8 dviguns wassat

        You can hang at least twelve, that's just if far from forever, and each engine also requires maintenance, this is more time and money, and competitors will have 2 engines. The remnants of four-engine retire.
        If you let out airplanes and do not calculate the development of events, who will operate them and how and how much it will cost, you can repeat the Boeing’s “feat”.

          Sarcasm. I agree that what works is good. How much it will turn out "economical" is a question. In my opinion, more for prestige. But let it be useful.

      Our shot 123 in all specials?
      Do you see the difference between PS-90A and PS-90A1? At least in letters.

        See yes I said - nothing is clear with certification. From the number (and the difference is precisely in the number, and not in the letter), the number of engines does not change. Sorry if I didn’t write enough for you. hi
        And yet, I'm not yours, I'm my own. repeat
