The first flight of the turboprop regional aircraft "Ladoga" will take place early next year

The first flight of the Ladoga turboprop regional aircraft is scheduled for the first quarter of 2024. This is reported by the Ural Civil Aviation Plant, which is developing a new machine.

At the moment, we have begun construction of the first prototype, which, according to the development schedule, should be built before the end of this year. At the end of 2024, we plan to obtain a type certificate for this aircraft, and in 2025 we will already start mass production.

- said Alexander Ivanov, head of the aircraft sales department of the Ural Civil Aviation Plant.

The turboprop regional aircraft for 44 passengers (TVRS-44 "Ladoga") is designed to replace the fleet of regional aircraft with a capacity of 30-50 seats of the An-24, An-26, An-140 and Yak-40 types. It can be operated on unprepared unpaved, grassy, ​​snowy areas, as well as on airfields with a short runway.

The first work on this project began in December 2018. At the same time, the Czech airliner Let L-610 was taken as the basis. In March 2022, it received the official name "Ladoga".

The aircraft was designed according to the traditional scheme with an all-metal prefabricated-riveted airframe structure with an upper wing. At the same time, flaps, spoilers, nose fairing and fuselage tip, wing fairing with fuselage and fairing of the main landing gear are made of composite materials.

    I thought that deceit was when we pioneers and Komsomol members were promised communism in the eighties.
    No. It wasn't a hoax, it was a delusion.
    Deception is when today, instead of what it really is, they tell us and write - it will take place, they will release it, they will build it, they will create it .....
    The lie is that indeed, after an indefinite number of years, several real copies will appear, but there will be no mass Armats, Kurgans, MS-21s, Superjets, and other unparalleled ones.
    Not profitable, uneconomical, inefficient... how inefficient this management system itself is.

      SSJs were produced in the amount of 200+, 150 are actively flying, and for the Russian Federation (~ 100 million air passengers per year), in principle, this number of aircraft in this dimension is enough.

      no mass

      If we take other industries, then it is quite a massive series of dry cargo ships RSD59, Vityaz-M trams, K5 KAMAZ tractors, Ivolga electric trains, VVER-1200 reactors ...
      If the military commissar is Pantsiri-S, Su-3xx, Msta-S, BMP-3, Borea SSBNs, Yarsy ICBMs.

      when today, instead of what actually exists, they tell us and write - it will take place

      these are questions about editorial policy, not the actual state of affairs.

      Let's say the news -

      Vladikavkaz has completed the renewal of the tram fleet ... In total, 28 modern cars of model 71-412 appeared on the streets of Vladikavkaz

      (the same is completely new - modern, about which you write "will not")

    Who knows?

    How many pieces of Ladoga aircraft are needed in the Russian Federation to close this niche? Taking into account the necessary stock. Considering civil and military, Ministry of Emergency Situations, DOSAAF, educational institutions, etc.
