The future of Russian aviation: massive replacement of engines and dozens of reliable aircraft

At the Army-15 forum taking place from August 21 to 2022, the vector for the development of the Russian aviation industry for the coming decades was announced.

Thus, the logic of ongoing events is pushing Russia towards import substitution, which will affect both aircraft and their components. First of all, we are talking about engines. In March of this year, the production of the French SaM146 turbofan engine was stopped, instead of which the domestic PD-8 will be produced - it is planned to be tested in the near future.

These engines will be replaced by new "Superjet" and aircraft, while using the SaM146. In total, 2030 PD-314s will be produced by 8, while 142 units will be produced by SSJ-NEW. Thus, Russia will seriously increase the production of aircraft engines, which will actively replace foreign analogues.

In addition, the first SSJ-NEW will be tested in the air in the middle of next year. From 2024, it is planned to produce two dozen such liners annually.

Along with this, the production of time-tested Tu-2023s will be launched from 214, and 2030 copies of this passenger aircraft will be assembled by 70. At the same time, it is important that the Tu-214 is capable of making long flights to the Far East without refueling, which distinguishes it favorably from the Tu-204 and other aircraft of a similar class.

The start of production of the Il-2025 wide-body aircraft is also scheduled for 96. The mass production of the MS-21 medium-haul airliner is also planned.

In general, given the overall decrease in the number of flights, the Russian industry will be able to comfortably replace foreign aircraft with domestic counterparts, and the problem of import substitution in Russian aviation will be gradually resolved.

    Everything is going too slow. Although cargo aviation needs to be tightened up, and then passenger counterparts will be easier to produce. Yes, but where is the updated AN-2?

    With such a pace of import substitution and such "effective" people responsible for this, it is unlikely that anything will change in the next decade. Yes, the people of Russia and no stranger. Why did we rest against civil aircraft, that we need to fly every day? We have everywhere solid imports, from nails to underpants. For complex equipment, specialists are needed to design and manufacture it, and much more. You can't place a visiting Shamshut. Where are they. If there is, then they work in the field of trade or for themselves. So the wishlists of power officials are another blizzard in the ears of the electorate, there seems to be noise, but there is no result.

      The most interesting thing is that from the CIS we invite shepherds and winemakers to work, who, working as auxiliary workers, build houses in Moscow. This is probably a "profitable" business for our economy. Why not invite those specialists who are currently in great demand for our aircraft industry, rocket industry, mechanical engineering, etc. Where is the master's approach to the economy of our high-ranking???

    The Internet is full of pictures about the future of aviation, as it was represented 100, 50 years ago ...
    And all over...
    What does it matter to Big Boss from Kazan, how many planes will be produced there? he still doesn't fly on them, sort of.
    But to master the money - yes. Here he is the director, and the owner, and the PR man, and the head at the same time .....

      Yes, not a single money will fly past his hands. Kazan balshoy, balshoy is actively fighting for the injection of money into his "piala" ... And money is also actively coming to other regions of Russia ???

    From every iron it pours about success in getting up from its knees, import substitution, new victories in denazification and disarmament, jerks and victories are shorter and the whole west is rotten. But in fact, just some kind of looking glass

    Such plans! I'm already confused. Such a variety of models (forgot to add IL-114), plans for 8 years ahead (until 2030) and so few copies!
    That we will fly on old Boeings and Airbuses, or some officials hope for the lifting of sanctions in order to buy more foreign rubbish.
    At the expense of trash - no one will sell us from the assembly line, only used and without spare parts is junk.

      They forgot that in ten years everyone will live even better and more and more expensive. Or will there finally be a complete form of capitalism?

    Everything is like the film "Guest from the Future" which remained a film. The future on the narrow paths of distant planets there will be no trace of us.
