Russia is developing an unusual aircraft with ultra-short takeoff

The Russian company Promservice is working on a transport aircraft with ultra-short take-off and landing. This became known to the agency TASS. The program is managed by the Advanced Research Foundation (FPI). To date, the developers have prepared an advance project, and have already begun the construction of the first demonstration aircraft.


Russia is developing an unusual aircraft with ultra-short takeoff


The main feature of the device is the implementation of ultra-short take-offs and landings. It is reported that the maximum take-off and run length of the aircraft will be only 15 meters. This result will be achieved thanks to the active airflow pattern of the wing. It consists of ten propellers distributed along the leading edge of the wing, which catch the air flow, thereby increasing the lifting force. The aircraft will be able to reach a speed of 250 kilometers per hour, and the payload mass will reach 500 kg. Flight range will exceed 1000 km.

The device will be able to take off, land and the flight itself in a fully automatic mode. A hybrid powerplant was chosen as the engine.

The FPI said that the first flight of the demonstration aircraft is scheduled for 2022. It is assumed that the device will be in demand in the structures of the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federation.

    Well, Christmas trees, sticks! There is also a ready-made concept of ECIP in metal. But no, you have to master the budget!

      There is also a ready-made concept for metal ECIP

      Well, first of all, there are several ECIP concepts. Secondly, none of them is comparable in characteristics with the one discussed in the article.
      https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/ЭКИП#Лётно-технические_характеристики_некоторых_проектов_ЛА_ЭКИП
      Take at least such a parameter as the take-off run. The article states (on the terms of reference) only 15 meters. And all EKIPs have much more. And conceptually, ECIPs are fundamentally different from the Promservice project.

        Dear, for that matter, I have an even more "ancient" example, though not ours. German transporter Dornier 31E, 68 year of release. That runway is unnecessary at all. Who is stopping us from bringing the idea to mind with modern engines and materials?

    I forgot how an old airplane, like an American, is called. Similar to the Yak-12, but with big wheels like that. Depending on the wind, it almost takes off.
    How much load capacity is it interesting? Could it be easier to do the same? Copy in Chinese.

      I forgot how an old airplane, like an American, is called. Looks like a Yak-12 ... Can it be easier to make the same?

      Actually, what are we thinking?
      If there is already a Yak-12, then why copy the American one "similar" to it? crying
      Only we are not talking about a similar aircraft. And with better characteristics than its predecessors.

        So the Yak-12 cannot, like this American

      Listen to "syuznyk" that you are all about Russian and American planes. Let's talk about Belarusian. Shaw says about this? Dakhgon and perekhgon !?

      hi I do not understand, dear Oleg RB, why you took away my morning plus sign, for what, what's the feature ?! what
      You quite rightly remembered the legendary American light aircraft Piper "Keb", famous for its volatility, which, accelerating on a rail around the pole, was able to take off from a small lawn, and against the frontal wind, practically from a place. Its carrying capacity was about 250 kg.
      I always liked the phenomenally flying German Fieseler156 "Stork (stork)" - he was also able to take off almost from a place, in a headwind, and just as, almost vertically, land even on a freshly plowed field - the coil springs of the chassis shock absorbers successfully extinguished the shock loads that occurred!
      Autogyros are also an example of take-off and landing practically from a place; their cruising speeds are comparable to those voiced in the Article.
      When designing this transport drone "with active wing blowing", apparently, the adherence of the designers to "quadcopters" (they specialize in them ???) was evident, otherwise it would be impossible to understand why, with such a wide choice of more compact and simple aerodynamic schemes, and successfully flying prototypes, it was necessary to overcomplicate everything so constructively, thereby many times reducing the overall reliability of the product ?!

    How many similar articles. In Russia they are developing something, developing it, etc. We live in an era of effective managers who rule processes. And they evaluate their work, so to speak, also by processes, and not by results. And then everyone wonders why people have a positive attitude towards Stalin. Yes, because they want to see the RESULT! And all these articles are just part of the PR, like, look, we're busy. And efficiency is improved in other ways. Term - Result - either a premium or a wall! And as our unforgettable said - The Process Will Go!

      It seems that you are talking with your reflection. Do you actually address your words to whom?
      Take a look around. We live under capitalism. And here is Stalin and the achievements of the USSR with him?
      The private trader is developing what he wants. And no one gave him a decree. This is not the USSR with its planned economy.
      Want a different approach? Put the question specifically. It is necessary to change the socio-economic system in the country.

        Like you of course. And here is the social and economic system? In private companies, money will not be spent just like that for processes. Another thing is budget money. Here lovers of process lovers. And you don’t even understand what I wrote about, apparently your work is also evaluated by processes.

    Laughter comes from the fact that the local people began to teach the government what to do with the creation or still copy devices for the country with a short take-off and landing. If you decide, then specialists have long considered what is beneficial and what is not beneficial in solving this problem. Time and much more scientific and technical thought and the real state in aircraft construction inexorably pose new problems and the need for its further development

      Hmm, so everything is logical here, we, sitters, are simply smarter than specialists. Everything is simple

    You can develop anything, but Medvedev knows: there is no money, but you hold on. So all the projects ...
