The Minister spoke about orders for the newest MS-21 airliner


The newest Russian airliner MS-21 goes into series production. The Russian Federation has regained its place in civil aviation among the leading aircraft-building powers of the planet, becoming a competitor to world manufacturers of such airliners. Told in an interview "Russian newspaper" Denis Manturov, head of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade.


The first flight of the MC-21-310 opened the factory test program. Upon completion, the flight certification test program will begin

Said the minister.

He specified that the first prototype MS-14 will also participate in tests with the Russian PD-21 aircraft engine. After that, the aircraft will undergo remotorization.

The minister noted that for airliners with PD-14, it is still necessary to obtain a type certificate from the Federal Air Transport Agency. It will be in 2022. Then the process of passing the validation (proof of compliance) in the European Aviation Safety Agency will begin.

The head of the department said that firm contracts have already been concluded, i.e. advance payments for the purchase of 175 MS-21 units went through them. Moreover, with both types of engines (American Pratt & Whitney PW1000G and Russian PD-14). MS-21 was specially designed so that, if desired, it could be equipped with different power units.

We are deliberately expanding firm orders, taking into account the fact that we must first increase production volume, at a rate of up to 70 units per year. By the time we reach the cycle of 30-40 units per year, we can start a campaign to recruit new orders

- he stressed.

The Minister explained that Aeroflot and Red Wings will be among the first aircraft operators. Airliners will be handed over to companies only after the appearance of certificates from regulators. But agreements for the supply of aircraft have already been signed with leasing companies, including Aviakapital-Service.

The production of aircraft for delivery to customers is already underway. The first serial MC-21-300 is in the final assembly shop of the Irkutsk aircraft plant. This is the most demanded and competitive medium-haul aircraft today.

- summed up the head of the department.

    Both companies are Russian. At home, it's not really competition. In the Russian Federation, much is being done in a directive manner. There was an article saying that it would be enough to buy over Bugr, in which case we would be deprived of spare parts ... and so on and so forth ...

          - Ale, garage? What does business have to do with it? Russia is the largest state in the world, and the construction of its own aircraft is a vital necessity, from Moscow to fly faster to London than to me, for example

            Was I against it? To your health. But no one canceled the competition. There will be 21 best MCs, they will be bought. And Canada and Brazil are doing too.
            The plane is not an end in itself, it should also bring profit.

                There is no shortage of airplanes in the world. This is also for the gifted.
                Are you going to pay extra to the company for a suddenly unsuccessful plane?

                    Actually, the SSJ100 ended up with a shitty not the engine, but the design of the airframe.
                    In particular, the landing gear assembly.

                        And landing gear, causing damage to fuel tanks and fire, is a different matter entirely.

                        here is a conversation about the profitability of the aircraft,

                        What about passenger safety?
                        And then who said. that Russia will ever be able to make a plane of a normal world level?
                        Where will the components be obtained?
                        Who said that the new engines will ultimately prove to be competitive?
                        Personally, I am sure that nothing like this will happen.
                        As it has never happened, never in high-tech areas.
                        Making a hole in the ground and pumping oil and gas through it is one technological level.
                        And the plane is already a different level.
                        Let's take such an area as the defense industry. Which, like, is cool in Russia.
                        Or rather, let's take the construction of underwater strategists.
                        It is a very high-tech area, therefore it characterizes the level of Russia very well.
                        American Ohio has 1 kg of platform per 13,4 kg of load (less is better).
                        British Vanguards, 16,9 kg.
                        The Chinese 094A Jin has 17,1 kg.
                        The Chinese 094 Jin have 22,8 kg.
                        The Russian Boreevs have 40,8 kg.
                        That is, Ohio is THREE TIMES more effective than Boreyev.
                        This is approximately the same ratio for other high-tech products.

    The Minister spoke about orders for the newest MS-21 airliner

    I'm not sure of its success after the SSJ100 disaster at Sheremetyevo.
    There were clearly visible shoals of designing the airframe. Where will other designers come from in Russia?
    No, they will not take it on the international market.
    Yes, and on the internal will take, like SSJ100, if strongly "asked".
    Anyway, it is still unknown whether he will be in the series at all.
