The project of the Il-112V aircraft is actually frozen, the construction of new flight models is not underway

In Russia, work is not yet underway on the project of the Il-112V light military transport aircraft, which was intended to replace the Soviet An-26. The reason for the freezing of the project is the unfinished investigation of the disaster on August 17, 2021, during which a prototype aircraft crashed.

About this in an interview with RIA News said Nikolai Talikov, Deputy Chairman of the Scientific and Technical Council, former Chief Designer of Ilyushin PJSC.

A military transport aircraft is capable of taking off and landing on poorly equipped airfields with concrete, unpaved or asphalt runways. The transporter made its first flight on March 30, 2019.

During the crash in August last year at the Kubinka air base in the Moscow region, the Il-112V caught fire during the landing approach, after which it rolled over and crashed to the ground. There was an explosion that killed all three crew members. The preliminary cause of the disaster is considered to be the unpreparedness of the Il-112V prototype for flights and attempts to hastily put the military transport into operation.

Meanwhile, back in May, one of the sources in the aircraft industry noted that the investigation into the incident with the Il-112V had been completed, but the results of the investigators' work would not be published. Official information on this subject is unknown.

    During a fire on the car from high temperatures, the aileron control rods stretched and broke, due to which the car turned over in the air and collapsed to the ground. and there were experienced test pilots in the car! The engine fire is the fault of the developer and mechanics, but they do not want to be responsible for the deaths of the most experienced test pilots!

      During test flights of transport workers, especially new aircraft, it is necessary to arrange a crew ejection system. . Testers become suicide bombers, because the tested and often unfinished machines malfunction, as on this occasion. It can be seen that the fire was large and the death of the aircraft was a foregone conclusion, the pilots had no choice but to hope to reach the landing ... Conclusion: all transport aircraft need crew ejection systems, because the count can go on for seconds. Human life is more important than cargo and aircraft.

        It is technically difficult to carry out an ejection upwards there, and an emergency escape downwards, as is customary on many VTA and long-range aviation aircraft at such an altitude, would still not have saved ...

          There are no big difficulties for the ejection device from a transport aircraft. The existing systems make it possible to eject from an aircraft at zero altitude (ground surface). The question is in technical binding with additional devices. Sometime it is necessary to start using such rescue devices, then they will be massive in every transporter ... There will be no need to run to the hatch or door when time is running out, but the plane is on end or at a peak ...

        Now there are specialists who can screw a nut with a left-hand thread onto a screw with a right-hand thread using a mat. I saw those. One did this with the front wheel. He drove off the pit, and then the wheel fell off, and the bus leaned over. The driver was very surprised. Locksmith too, but not much. He was in such a state that he could not determine which leg he had left, which right.

    It looks like sabotage. The country needs an airplane, but you see there is little and no money. What can I say - we can’t start the maize plant for 15 years, we’ve been chatting about it. And here it’s all the same as an aircraft carrier. Lived up to the shameful days of aircraft manufacturers.

    But if this catastrophe had not happened, because they were in a hurry, they could take the plane and launch it into a series ... they would have made potential coffins with wings.
    They say that beautiful planes fly well. The same plane looks at least strange, there is no beauty for sure. Obese fuselage with some kind of stick instead of wings...

    Nice car, although the project is very old. It was Mr. Sertyukov who stopped the production of these aircraft in 2011 and began to buy Ukrainian aircraft. And after his resignation from the Moscow Region, he was appointed chairman of the board of directors of the United Aircraft Corporation, where he continued to spread rot on this project. Now live. sleeping cell.

      The most important thing is to break everything. Someday they will build. In the meantime, they will buy, something will stick to their hands. Did the builders really think that it was more dangerous to steal during construction? Who scared them so? It is possible and necessary to steal, Russia has stood and will stand on this! Your Majesty, they steal. They do not steal, but enrich themselves, so their majesty said.

      As far as I can tell, the IL-112V is not an airplane at all. At least in the IAC, which is conducting an official investigation of the crash along with the Ministry of Industry and Trade, this flight accident has not been recorded at all.

    A dark and shameful stain on our aircraft industry, and not even the death of crew members, but the fact that everything was classified and shelved.!!!??? They didn’t create a second copy, having checked and double-checked everything .. this is the logic of any further tests to obtain by eliminating the shortcomings of a workable and safe aircraft .. !!! The practice of creating and fine-tuning prototype aircraft does not happen without loss, it's fantastic if you suddenly took the plane ..... and flew .... and flies !! In life, these are sleepless wears and a huge work of designers, aircraft builders, so that the plane begins to fly .... who does not understand this !!??? I admit, if there was no sabotage, competition in favor of other design bureaus ... which has happened more than once in the history of our aircraft industry. A strange state - the IL-112V project is frozen, like some kind of piece of meat ..... and what's next !!! ??
    It was very necessary for the country's Air Force .. and it is not there, it would be time to figure it out and deal with such cases of ice cream, often similar to sabotage.

    This is very sad, it was necessary to draw conclusions from the loss of the flight model, identify and correct errors in the design of the aircraft, continue its refinement, but with us, as always, it is better to abandon everything than to strain all our strengths and competencies, and continue work to achieve the final result .

    Watched this video again. At one time in the USSR, I flew sports, I was an aeronautical engineer, the first half of my life is connected with aviation:
    To repeat my comment from August 27, 2021, :

    The video posted on the Internet shows that the plane is on fire in the area of ​​the right engine.
    On the same side there is a residential area along which the plane is flying
    In the event of an engine fire, pilots cut off the fuel supply to it. The engine stops. The engine propeller is feathered because in a non-feathering position, it creates significant resistance. The fire extinguishing queues of the engine are probably triggered. However, the fire continues, possibly due to feeding directly from the tanks of the right wing plane.
    To ensure horizontal flight, the left engine is switched to the nominal mode, and, if necessary, to the takeoff mode.
    The thrust of the left engine creates a powerful turning moment to the right, trying to turn the plane towards the residential area.
    The video shows that the pilots continue to keep the plane on the course, preventing it from turning towards the residential area.
    They do it to the end, saving the residential area. Even when, after heeling to the right, significant glide to the right wing develops.
    When sliding onto the wing, the aircraft tends to turn in the direction of sliding. The video shows that this is not happening. The pilots, even in this position, continue to keep the plane on the course, despite the fact that the pilot's instincts force them, for rescue, to "give the right leg".
    The aircraft turn to the right occurs later, when the aircraft no longer has enough rudder, completely deflected to the left and completely deflected to the left of roll control, due to the lateral projection of the wing lift due to significant roll.
    Judging by the debris flying off in a stream of smoke, heeling occurs from the loss of lift of the right wing plane due to the destruction of the right flap sections by fire in the area of ​​the right engine. Roll development is likely to begin when fully deflected steering is no longer enough.
    Eternal memory to real professionals who continue the traditions of the national testing school.
    As for the reasons, technical malfunctions on the tested equipment have been and will be. Analysis of the causes of the disaster and their development will help to avoid this in the future.
    This is the inevitable price to pay for the technological progress of mankind

    ...Then, a year ago, I did not think that as a result they would simply abandon the plane.
    Recently, our government somehow, unusually easily, are given decisions that were previously called "difficult"
