Why Boeing and Airbus need to be wary of competition with the Russian MS-21


The Russian United Aircraft Corporation is testing new civilian aircraft that were previously suspended due to rampant COVID-19. Currently, four instances of the MC-21 are being tested. A British edition of Simple Flying talks about Russian news and explains why this aircraft can compete with Boeing and Airbus.


According to British experts, the MS-21 is a very promising short-to-medium-range narrow-body passenger aircraft developed by Irkut Corporation.

This airliner is in experienced hands and has every chance of becoming a competitive player in the global aviation markets - Irkut has 88 years of experience in the aviation industry

- emphasizes the British edition.

Airliners will be equipped with Russian engines of the fifth generation PD-14, which meet all environmental requirements and create a minimum of noise. The aircraft body is made of advanced materials and aluminum alloys, which allowed to reduce take-off weight and maintain a relatively low cost in comparison with similar machines of other companies.

Another significant plus of the new Russian aircraft is increased passenger comfort. MS-21, unlike competitors, has the widest fuselage in this class of aircraft - passengers received significantly more space, and long flights are not so tiring to carry over.

Foreign companies have already begun to show interest in the MS-21. So, the airline from Cairo plans to buy six such aircraft, plus an option for four more liners. Azerbaijan Airlines wants to lease 10 MS-21. Merpati Nusantara Airlines from Indonesia, as well as Peruvian Airlines, also became interested in Russian news.

    Am I on political information on Monday morning? A good aircraft, God forbid, the Russian market to master and displace other people's aircraft.

    Here's how Boing managers rate their 737 Max.

    This aircraft is designed by clowns, who, in turn, are under the supervision of monkeys.

      By the end of the year, MAX with a redesigned MKAS is on the line. In addition to the ill-fated ICAC, everything else is in order there.

    In terms of characteristics, it is, of course, a competitor, but in terms of production, it will not become such soon. When Boeing and Airbus shared the market, our aircraft industry practically did not exist. Now you have to win your place under the sun. Although ... if the Boeing will continue to work as well, the task will greatly simplify it. In any case, first its own market, then everyone who is under sanctions and just countries that do not want to depend on the United States. The fight is serious and it will not be a knightly duel.

      And how to work like that? In addition to the ICAC, Boeing had no serious punctures. The portfolio of orders for the new 777 and Dreamliner is full, and NG both took and take.

    A somewhat arrogant statement.
    Norwegian airline Norwegian Air has canceled an order for 92 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft and five Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The airline also demanded compensation from the US concern for the suspension of operation of the 737 MAX airliners and a malfunction in the Boeing 787 engine.
