The newest Il-114-300 took off in Russia

The newest IL-114-300 passenger liner made its maiden flight at the airfield in Zhukovsky. Earlier, the aircraft, in preparation for flight tests, carried out several high-speed runs along the runway, raising the front landing gear.

The Il-114-300 is a modernized version of the Il-144, the aircraft will be used for regional transportation. The liner is capable of taking on board 68 passengers, the flight range of the aircraft is 1 km. It is equipped with Il-900-114 turboprop engines of Russian production TV300-7ST-117.

The new passenger airliner can be used at airfields with short and unpaved runways and weak technical infrastructure, as well as on ice strips in the Arctic regions. On board the Il-114-300, a flight and navigation system was installed, which ensures the operation of the aircraft in meteorological conditions of the II category of ICAO. All data during the flight are displayed on five color liquid crystal displays.

Such a machine is really needed - we have no alternatives to passenger short-haul ships with the ability to land on, let's say, not well equipped airfields

- said the deputy editor-in-chief of the magazine "Arsenal of the Fatherland", an expert in aviation Dmitry Drozdenko in an interview with radio "Sputnik".

According to the head of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade, Denis Manturov, the development and production of the Il-114-300 cost the Russian budget 25 billion rubles. According to the program adopted earlier, it is planned to produce up to 2030 airliners by 100, which will be sent to the needs of Russian civil aviation, as well as to state customers and for sale abroad.

    Great news.
    Another one, aspires to the sky.
    I will add, from memory.
    Airplane, project reincarnation, development 1985, approx. To replace the worn out An-24.
    First flight, 90-91. Produced, approx 20 pieces. Production resumed a couple of years ago.
    The project is 35 years old.
    Contrary to the claims in the article, it cannot be operated from bad airfields - the certificate does not allow (let me remind you that the high-wing An-148, with a theater of operation, the Angara AK does not operate from the ground).
    The engines are completely Russian. Again, the reincarnation of TV3-117, developed by Klimov, and produced exclusively by MC.
    Now Klimov collects engines at his place. Approximately 100 pieces per year.
    Clear sky.

      Not only did the An-24s fly off their own, but it was originally a bad aircraft, with a heavy load on the wing, which resulted in many problems during its operation. They wanted to remove him from flights even under the USSR, the collapse of which prevented this. Now the error has been fixed, but the fact that the plane is domestic, and not just another Misral, completely dependent on the whims of the West, including in terms of spare parts, is just fine. By the way, to this day, Canadian ATR-24s, developed in the 72s of the last century and extremely poorly adapted for operation in the north, have been purchased to replace the An-80, due to engineering errors in the design of the aircraft wing, due to which the aircraft has an increased tendency to icing ...

    Enemies of Russia, set minuses for information about the newest Russian aircraft, gleaned from the Russian Wikipedia!
