New Russian supersonic airliner will be slower than Tu-144


Russia and the United Arab Emirates are planning to create a joint aviation enterprise for the development and production of a supersonic passenger business liner. The joint initiative of Moscow and Abu Dhabi was announced by the Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov during his working visit to the UAE.


The main participants in the project will be the Abu Dhabi sovereign fund Mubadala, as well as the Russian United Aircraft Corporation or one of its subsidiaries. The details of the equity participation, according to Manturov, have not yet been discussed in detail.

The main technical characteristics of the aircraft have already become known to the media. Thus, the new Russian supersonic airliner will develop a speed of the order of Mach 1,8 - about 2203 km / h, which is less than the speed developed by the Soviet Tu-144 passenger aircraft - it ranged from 2300 to 2430 km / h.

The business liner manufacturers have provided two versions of the aircraft - one will accommodate 8 people, the other will be designed for 30 passengers. Cash investments in the project at its first stage will amount to about $ 100 million.

    Russia and the United Arab Emirates are planning to create united aviation enterprise for the development and production of supersonic passenger business liner.

    If the plane is created jointly, then it will not be entirely Russian.
    Businessmen, of course, are passengers, but the Tu-144 was designed for a mass air traveler, and not for a businessman with a retinue and servants.
    Let's see, although I look at the likelihood of breeding a hybrid of a bear and a camel with great skepticism.

      Exactly yes The Arabs will tell you that they are not only conquering space, but also become a world aviation power. I guess we'll get over it. Let them indulge their pride. We have enough foreign investments, and in Russian production, and not in the speculative market.

      Businessmen, of course, are passengers, but the Tu-144 was designed for a mass air traveler, and not for a businessman with a retinue and servants.

      This can be viewed from the other side. The "businessman with his retinue and servants" will buy himself an airplane anyway. Is it bad if it is Russian? (I ask for a joint laughing).

        The Arabs say with good reason that they are "conquering space" because the "Hope" probe launched to Mars was developed by a team of Arab scientists in collaboration with American ones.

          Who is against? They pay money for it. It's time to become an aviation power for them, enough money. Let them talk...

        Mom washed the frame

        1) Who washed the frame? - Mother.
        2) What did mom wash? - Ramu.
        3) What did mom do with the frame? - Soaps.

        Yes, yes, in Russia, whatever you do, it turns out either the Communist Party of the Soviet Union or the Kalashnikov assault rifle. There are no other options.

          Actually, they originally did the Pantsir, and it turned out, not AK. So these are your fantasies.

            Unfortunately this not my fantasies... There is such a thing called "humor", the feeling of which you have completely repulsed :))

            In foreign language lessons, we were taught to ask a question to each member of the proposal. This is exactly what you are doing here :)
            Judging by your verbosity, you are paid for the number of characters, and the money is transferred to a card that replaces now the can of your childhood.

              If a joke is not laughed at, the reason is not always a lack of a sense of humor, sometimes a joke is overused. By the way, I didn't notice your laugh about the can either. request The joke is no less hackneyed and the reaction is quite predictable.

              What questions? In my opinion, in each comment one by one what I don't talk to them, I just write laughing

              Judging by your verbosity, you are paid for the number of characters, and the money is transferred to a card that is now replacing the can of your childhood.

              Thanks for your kind words hi In response, I can only sympathize, judging by your brevity, they pay less and everything fits in a duck under the bed.

                The numbered full-time clown learned how to sculpt emoticons, but his trace of his cap (gyrus) is clearly not enough to learn Russian within the framework of the high school program.

    after all, for a year or two, negotiations have been going on.
    It turns out that everything is correct. Sheikhs will make flying yachts for themselves.
    And we will develop the technology.
    The main thing is that it doesn't work out like with the Indians ...

      The idea is really dubious, the plane with a high degree of probability will not be able to become massive and the money invested in its development by the Russian Federation will never pay off

        There will be no plane. Firstly, there is no engine.

    They will make not 2 versions, but 2 pieces: for 30 passengers for the emir and his wives to fly to Paris for clothes, and for 8 passengers - to Sochi and from Sochi to Moscow "fast". fellow

    An interesting project! Interesting in terms of flight routes. If only between Moscow and Abu Dhabi, the design of the aircraft will be simpler and cheaper. If between Moscow / Abu Dhabi and Europe / USA, then the airframe / engine design will be more complicated and more expensive.
    In the first case, you don't have to bother with engine noise during takeoff / landing / sound_barrier - no one will complain (in both countries), and if they do, they will quickly be gagged.
    But in the second case ... Concorde flew to New York once a week, because the noise of the engines, you see, disturbed the inhabitants of the Parisian suburbs. And Concorde never flew deep into the United States, only to NY, because of gentle amers who hate noise.
    The American company Aerion is creating its AS2 superjet for 12 people. The speed is 1,6 m and the range is 8,800 km. Development costs $ 4 billion and trials will begin this year. The company is so confident in the implementation of the project and the requirements of the market that, even before the start of the tests, it began construction of a plant for the production of aircraft in a quantity of 300 in 10 years (about 500 in total) at a price of $ 120 million each.

      cmonmanHave you heard of hypersonic missiles? The knowledge that provided the creation of modern weapons with such characteristics, quite possibly, will help solve the problem of high noise levels. Or maybe it has already been solved. wink

    If only he did not have the fate of the Tu-144, because the project was closed not because of an accident, the profitability was unprofitable, the state paid for cheap tickets for citizens of the USSR.

    In 2014 and 2016, he proposed to the President of Russia Putin V.V. combat laser of 4 types and other ideas. He offered a passenger airliner flight from Moscow to Khabarovsk at a supersonic speed from 1200 to 3200 km / h, over a straight high-voltage power line (0,4-10-110-220-330-500-750-1150 kV.); on super-powerful high-speed high-voltage electric motors from 20000 kW (kVA) and more, a hybrid that burns atmospheric air - saving fuel; and a cargo unmanned airliner flies at a hypersonic speed of 10 thousand km / h and more. After my offer, and asked for help. The Russian President proposed; to convert the Tu-160 into a passenger airliner.

    I'm freaking out. How can you compare a business jet and a passenger airliner? author, remember: k / g, a / m. The latter is completely true.
    Is there no author?
