300 Russian aircraft: Aeroflot is preparing for the deal of the century

Russian public-private airline Aeroflot is gearing up for its deal of the century for more than 300 domestic passenger aircraft. This was reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin by the general director of the air carrier, Sergei Aleksandrovsky, during a working meeting.

The head of Aeroflot PJSC told the head of state that the company had entered a series of major purchases from the United Aircraft Corporation (part of the Rostec state corporation) and was trying to take a large market share in difficult times for Russian aviation by updating its aircraft fleet. The acquisition of such a large number of aircraft is a massive task, even by the standards of the global international market.

In turn, Putin supported the initiative and allocated 50 billion rubles to the company as assistance. It should be noted that after the introduction of Western sanctions, leasing deals were disrupted and a ban was imposed on the cooperation of foreign aircraft manufacturers with Russian companies. This led to a shortage of aircraft in the Russian Federation.

Aeroflot plans to expand its fleet in the coming years by replenishing 323 aircraft: 73 Sukhoi Superjet units, 210 MS-21 units and 40 Tu-214 units. Sukhoi Superjet is the first passenger aircraft developed in Russia. It can carry 120 passengers for 4,5 thousand km. MS-21 is capable of carrying up to 165 passengers for 6,4 thousand km. Tu-214 is designed for 200 passengers and flights up to 6 thousand km.

    So. Money allocated. Where are the factories and the workers for them?
    Doesn't this money require capital expenditures tens (hundreds?) times greater - for the creation (expansion) of existing capacities, import substitution and the revival of factories that produce all components, to the last bolt. And also for the reconstruction of the system of vocational training and training in this system of the necessary staff of workers and engineers for these industries.
    Let me remind you that most of the money we have accumulated over these 20 years, the authorities recently "ceded" to the States.
    Where is the time for all this? How much time did it take for a similar task of the USSR? Putin had this time - as much as 20 years! But he, along with a team of like-minded people, missed him, along with the money.
    Now the same team has made a "second attempt". Should she be trusted?
    And, even if we trust her again - will the States give us time and such an opportunity?

      210 units MS-21, this is how many decades they will build, if 20 a year at best ... So in a decade a new generation of MS-21 will appear ... Similar projects look like they are for "cutting" allocated loans, not otherwise ...

        You are an optimist! Twice! The first optimism is 20 aircraft per year. The second optimism is a new generation of aircraft in a decade. In 10 years, only a new generation of the VAZ-2101 can be created.

      Here you study the question, not in primitive naivety, in nesting at about the level of 6-7 and the interconnection of the order of 200 parameters, then only then write.

      ...Putin supported the initiative and allocated 50 billion rubles to the company...

      You are right.
      Putin supported, Putin ordered, Putin singled out ... - everywhere only Putin! And the fact that in twenty-two years he drove the country into the deepest gorge, which will be the grave in the future of our grandchildren and even great-grandchildren, does not bother the current "patriots".
      God, when will this end...??!!

      This money is the price for Alaska that Russia paid to the States. The money has been paid. It's time to take Alaska home to Russia!

        Bravado. Again bravado. It gives us nothing but spiritual blindness. By self-hypnosis and self-justification, we only prolong self-destruction. We need to experience a burning shame, for the fact that we allowed ourselves to do this and continue to give. For being in such an indecent position, with your pants down. This is really the cure.
        I'm starting to think that the irresponsibility (meanness) of the authorities in relation to their people is supported by the irresponsibility (meanness) of the people (you and me) in relation to their own future and the future of their children.
        Remember at least what our grandfathers died for, how they (namely, this is the human norm) treated our future with you. So prosr..m Motherland?

      In fact, at any aircraft factory, workers are slightly more than 50% of the total number of personnel.
      Vocational education has not gone away. Colleges train aircraft fitters, aircraft equipment electricians, machine operators, and controllers. And universities prepare engineers.

    It turns out MS-21 and Tu-214 belong to the same type? Well, in terms of range, the number of passengers. For what? Just curious, why are they setting up in parallel the production of two identical (for me as a layman) aircraft?

      Because there are so many MCs that need not be released .. And Tu - was completely ready for production for a very long time. And if it were not for the vigorous activity of our wise leaders, our air fleet would now be almost completely domestic.

    To the account of the allocated money: Since the beginning of the NWO, airports in southern Russia have been closed to civil aviation. But citizens bought tickets. It is especially interesting about subsidized tickets from distant regions. Airlines do not return the money immediately, but only after the formal postponement of the dates beyond the date of departure. Banks are also patriotically silent. State money is spinning in accounts at interest. In general, this is a scam with government subsidies. And nobody freaks out. The country is at war. Everyone is not up to economic crimes. But for some, as they say, war - and for some, the mother is dear. Yes, and again allocated funding. Interesting - the Ministry of Transport in this situation, on whose side????

      Airlines do not return the money immediately, but only after the formal postponement of the dates beyond the date of departure.

      Last November I bought 4 southwestbound tickets from S-7. After the start of the NWO, all flights to this country were canceled. S-7 returned the money completely freely, I only lost 150 rubles from each ticket - either a commission fee, or the bank withheld for the transfer of money.

        Of course the company will return. But it will only drag out until the formal date of the flight ban, knowing that the staff of the airports in the south has been dismissed until December. But formally there will be transfers of the opening a little bit. In the meantime, the money will spin in the accounts. It is customary to keep subsidized money on the accounts for longer (until it stops), pretending that they don’t know anything about the fact that even after the expiration of the ban on flights, they will be rescheduled again. And then they will return the one whose term has passed and then they will turn those money, the term of which has not yet come up. Or are you not familiar with this scheme? hi

          In my opinion, you just need to go to the airline's website and formally issue a ticket refund. I got it back within a month.

      My wife and I "flew" from the Platov airport (Rostov-on-D) to the Mineralnye Vody and are still "flying". It is proposed to buy tickets in the future with the frozen money.

    Yes. very much like a scam.
    They allocated money to pets from the state budget, the rest nevermind, and this money is clearly not enough for the declared aircraft, they will write off more .......

    I don’t understand here at all, what kind of aircraft update? Go to the website of Sheremetyevo Airport and see where Aeroflot flies now? I met something else: some Russian airlines began to dismantle existing aircraft for spare parts. There are some plans here, like an intergalactic chess tournament and an interplanetary rally. laughing

      This practice has been in the past. Even always. Both in military and civil aviation. It is easier and safer to extend the life of an assembly or a part than the device as a whole. These devices are called donors.

    Only at the current pace, while so many planes are being made, the century will end. Our authorities are doing everything so that no one is overstrained. God forbid someone will put an end to irresponsibility and force them to answer. So far this has not happened.
