Russia is considering the possibility of resuming the production of passenger Il-96 and Tu-214


During a trip on March 16 to the Aviastar plant in Ulyanovsk, owned by the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov spoke about the possibility of resuming mass production of Il-96 and Tu-214 passenger liners.


Currently, aircraft are produced in small quantities for individual customers. But in the course of the analysis and development of a plan for the production of aircraft, which will be approved in the near future, the company can increase the pace of construction of passenger liners.

Based on the picture that we get, we may use the reserve for the additional production of these aircraft

Borisov noted (quote TASS).

The Deputy Prime Minister also spoke about the need to speed up the implementation of import substitution programs in the construction of civil aircraft. To accomplish this task, all industry specialists are involved, and there is no pause in the work of specialized plants and is not planned.

In addition, Borisov stressed the importance of speeding up work on flagship projects for the production of the MS-21 medium-haul narrow-body passenger aircraft, as well as the Suhoi Superjet 100. At the same time, the Deputy Prime Minister called the execution of the state defense order an absolute priority for the industry.

    Well, as a temporary option, until the complete import substitution of MS-21, the same Tu-214 can be produced if there is a shortage of cars, but then it is necessary either to modernize the 214 or to place the production of MS-21 at Tupolev facilities (which would be better)
    It’s worse with the Il-96th - if the same 214th can be modernized if desired, including through remotorization, then according to Il, the modernization should be deeper - you can’t just change 4 engines to 2 without clarifying the wing design and general balancing

      There, the old PS-90A can be replaced with new PD-14s for the time being. And in the future, with the advent of the PD-35 - already on 2 engines.

        Well, again - as a temporary option - yes. But it will still be less economical than 2 large engines, but turning over before the advent of the PD-35 (and it won’t be soon) will do

        power PD 14 is not enough for IL96

      About 30 aircraft (more than 20 in Russia) Tu-204/214 are in storage.
      It is quite realistic to restore the airworthiness of some and assemble them in one airline of the Azimuth type (SSJ-100).
      The prospect of bankruptcy (in the absence of spare parts and maintenance) will make it attractive for businesses to buy old-design aircraft.

        Judging by the summary information from various sources over the past few days, airlines rely more on gray and semi-gray deliveries of spare parts through 3rd countries, coupled with the re-registration of aircraft in the Russian jurisdiction, than on domestic orders. But it’s not a fact that through 3rd countries it will burn out or even more likely it can become very unprofitable in price

          Spare parts from 3 countries - this is one dependency (quality, price, delivery time), acceptable as a temporary measure.

          The Ministry of Transport has calculated the number of airlines operating flights to/from Russia. As of 17.03.22/XNUMX/XNUMX, according to the Ministry, international flights continue to operate six Russian and 29 foreign airlines.

          There is another.
          Only the restoration of the domestic aviation industry will correct the situation radically.

      For domestic flights, the calculated amount of IL-96-400 production is quite logical.

        Only then they must be released immediately from the PD-14 (like the Tu-214s) in order to somehow modernize them.

    They have been talking about "the possibility of resuming production" for a long time. 5 years already.

    When the main drawback is the insufficient efficiency of engines, they could try to solve it during this time by upgrading the old

      Previously, there was no incentive, because in the Russian Federation everything is decided by purely economic motives that our planes could not satisfy, but now politics and even old ones have intervened, but our flyers may be urgently needed. In general, such resource-rental economies as ours are characterized by the phenomenon "until the thunder breaks out ..." (c);)

    It is time to stop considering the possibility of producing ILs and Carcasses, and start production as a matter of urgency.
