The plane is ready: MS-21 has completed all tests


According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia, flight tests of the narrow-body MS-21 passenger aircraft developed by PJSC Irkut Corporation have been completed, and in the coming days the aircraft will fly with a Russian composite wing. This was reported by the state corporation Rostec.


We have completed the flight certification program for the MC-21 aircraft and expect to receive a type certificate in the near future.

- noted the head of the department Denis Manturov in an interview with the TV channel "Russia-24".

In the Russian Federation, they were concerned about the creation of polymer composite materials for the aircraft after the US announced sanctions against the Aerocomposite company in 2018. The company uses raw materials developed at the facilities of Rosatom with the participation of experts from Moscow State University.

After the announcement of sanctions measures, according to representatives of Rostec, the state corporation was forced to develop new materials as soon as possible. Thus, the MS-21 will fly for the first time with a Russian-made "black" wing.

Meanwhile, during the certification flights, a passenger plane flew from Moscow to Irkutsk with a range of about 4 thousand km. On board the MC-21 were the aircraft designers from the A.S. Yakovlev, part of the Irkut corporation. Thus, the specialists were personally convinced of the reliability of the flying machine.

      My son took and takes an active part in the development and assembly technologies of the MS-21. A new building for dryers was built at Irkut, and the vacated building was given over to MS-21. We have been waiting for international certification for a long time. Now we have received the "certificate" and other crap, the tests are over, and GO.

    Well, less than a year has passed. It remains to wait until the spacecraft (new maize) will finally launch a new one. The feeling that there is a whole Martian epic, seprnova technologies that have no analogues so delayed the new airplane.

      I would like to remind you that Russia, although with difficulty, has created a second passenger aircraft. But the Japanese (Mitsubishi), after 10 years of design and testing, while not having any opposition from the outside, ended up with zilch. And by the way, this was the second attempt, the first ended with the same result.

        So I'm happy for us. I only understood if you jump in ecstasy and ptariotically happy - a plus. If you remember a sin - a minus. In short, you have to blunt patriotic. Therefore, we will not sadly remember the new corn plant taking off for 10 years)))

          The problem with the corn-grower is not at all an aviation problem, unless of course you follow the topic. There seem to be three different prototypes created, and each is ready for a series. This is not the question, but the price of the aircraft and the cost and complexity of operation. The most technologically advanced of them (which with a composite wing) is too expensive and difficult to operate. Therefore, they are wise here and there with different options. And as far as I know, the decision has not been made yet.

          I only understood if you jump in ecstasy and ptariotically happy - a plus.

          Not so at all. Criticism should not be indiscriminate, but sober. Here's how with this maize. You are an indiscriminate critic, because it turns out that they cannot do it for 10 years. And I am a constructive critic, because I know and understand that the designers have nothing to do with it, and we need to ask the functionaries, who cannot make up their minds in any way. Still guilty here are those who establish the rules by which small aircraft live, if you know what I mean.
          And you know the strangest thing? You are probably a citizen of Russia and Russian, but I both times not. Why not be the least bit patriot of your country?

      the Russian auto industry to take the wing is very good. additional jobs, technologies (maybe not the most advanced, but at the world level this is also a big step forward. and for you - zloybond (steppenwolf) I can say that only your homeland (Ukraine) claims to be a maize worker, and we have enough IL and YAK for passenger transportation.

      Maybe you, so smart, will become the local Ilon Mask, Sergei Pavlovich Korolev, and show us all how to develop aircraft?

    According to the plan, by 2018 the Irkut corporation will assemble the first four MC-21s and will gradually increase the production volumes. By 2020, it will be produced by 20 aircraft per year, and by 2023 - by 70 airliners.

      Whiners are social goofs and only think in their lower hemispheres. Always, as in Russia they start to publish something new, then these social idiots are right there in the front row on the fan loading with shit.

      At Irkut, they were waiting for their PD-14 engine, since the United States of America made a trick with engines, then it failed with composites for the wing, and most importantly, there was a delay in international certification due to jackal overseas kills. Now all the obstacles have been bypassed and on the full path.

    Irkut Corporation does not have the financial capabilities of Boeing or Airbus to organize a service system outside of Russia.
    The technical level is by no means a decisive factor in modern conditions
    Has no reputation in the serial production of passenger aircraft.
    Therefore, the export potential is extremely narrow to ensure profitable production. There is no free space on the market.

      You're right, IMS. However, the Union had even less export opportunities and nothing, they were building. And this handsome man (if he really turns out to be a worthy rival to the Watermelons and Batons) works "above the roof" in the Motherland + power / state structures. And make the Native Companies an offer they can't refuse. How many models do not advertise, advertising is advertising. But when we ourselves begin to fly them, when the declared savings and other "goodies" will turn out to be not advertising bullshit, but a fact. Then the buyers will be drawn into the queue. The bad news is that given our culture of production, when we have been building corvette-type ships for almost decades, trust us to saturate and saturate your market.

    We have completed the flight certification program for the MC-21 aircraft and expect to receive a type certificate in the near future.

    No matter how many people are forced to certify something else, for example toilets. And then, these are all different versions, with different wings, with different engines ... That's when customers will start receiving aircraft. Then we'll clap. In the meantime, they have not yet transgressed. SP-2 was also built - it is still standing.

    Watermelons and Batons are owned by investment funds that rule the world. The destruction of the Soviet aircraft industry was a gift to them for thousands of billions of dollars. Before the collapse of the USSR, only two countries in the world could make the entire range of aircraft. Sold for Gorbachev's pizza, now there is nothing to stink, you have to catch up.
