Maiden flight of MC-21

One of UAC’s key projects, MC-21 is a newgeneration passenger liner that targets the largest aviation segment. MC-21 took off on its maiden flight on 28 May 2017 from the airfield of the Irkutsk Aviation Plant. The 30-minute flight was performed at an altitude of 1,000 metres with a speed of 300 km/h. The aircraft was operated by a crew consisting of test-pilot Oleg Kononenko, Hero of the Russian Federation, and test-pilot Roman Taskaev, Hero of the Russian Federation. The prototype was successfully tested for stability, handling and engine controllability: all the systems operated without glitches, the engine characteristics and operational modes were confirmed.

The second stage of MC-21-300 in-plant development tests commenced in September 2017. The main objective of the second stage was to extend the flight performance range in terms of mass, centring, speed and altitude. During the test-flights, the improved systems operated without failure.

A number of the UAC member companies have been working on MC-21, including PJSC Irkut Corporation, JSC Aeroсomposit, JSC Aviastar-SP, PJSC VASO and LLC UACIntegration Centre. The aircraft featuring advanced technical solutions ensures that its passengers have a comfortable travel and presents an economically attractive offer to airlines.

It was not just a flight of a new aircraft; it was the birth of a new product that will be shaping the Russian aircraft building industry in the next 50 years. We expect a global demand for around 15,000 new aircraft in the MC-21 segment over the next 20 years. No doubt, the airlines will duly appreciate our new aircraft.
Yuri Slyusar

MC-21 will have the largest diameter of fuselage of all the available narrow-body aircraft, which will imply a totally new level of comfort: every passenger will have a larger personal space and will be able to easily walk by the trolley during meal service, while the airlines will appreciate the reduced turn-around time at airports. The aircraft will also have larger windows to bring in more light. In addition, it will have a more comfortable cabin pressure and improved cabin climate. An innovative ergonomic air crew cabin was designed for the pilots of MC-21.

In addition, advanced technical solutions in aerodynamics, engine technologies and aircraft systems were introduced – in particular, MC-21 is the first narrow-body aircraft with a seating capacity of over 130 passengers to have specially designed high-load composite wings that will improve its performance characteristics. The engine features innovative solutions that help reduce fuel consumption, hazardous emissions and noise while ensuring higher cruising speed. The weight of the aircraft will also be significantly reduced through the use of modern materials.

JANUARY

On 12 January the TANTK Imeni G.M. Berieva delivered the first production configuration aircraft Be-200ChS amphibious aircraft to the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations. The aircraft successfully completed the flight tests. The aircraft had undergone significant upgrade—the equipment had been modernised, and there had also been serious changes in the airframe design.

FEBRUARY

On 2 February one of the most important aircraft manufacturing stages was completed at the Voronezh Aircraft Plant (PJSC VASO): the wings were coupled to the fuselage of the Il-112V light military transport aircraft. The aircraft has a maximum payload of 5 tonnes and is designed for transporting personnel, military equipment, weapons and other kinds of cargo.

On 27 January the newest MiG-35 multifunction aircraft system had its international premiere in the city of Lukhovitsy (Moscow Region). The aircraft is designed for operation in high-intensity conflict areas characterised by dense enemy air defence and can defeat airborne, ground and surface targets.

April

On 4 April the UAC represented the Russian aircraft industry at the LAAD-2017 international aviation, aerospace and defence exhibition in Brazil.

On 27 April the Kazan Aviation Plant launched a beam welding line to produce titanium parts for the new Tu-160 missile-carrying aircraft, which was one of the key stages of the enterprise’s modernisation. Beam welding is used to manufacture the wing centre section beam of the Tu-160 bomber. The assembly weighs around 6 tonnes and takes the maximum load: it supports the principal swing mechanisms and the wings themselves.

May

On 22 May the UAC and the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) opened the office of the China-Russia Commercial Aircraft Corporation, a jointventure company that will act as the operator of the programme for building a new generation long-haul wide-body commercial aircraft. The Russian and Chinese aircraft engineers will jointly work on the new aircraft.

On 28 May the new MC-21-300 passenger aircraft took off on a maiden flight from the airfield of the Irkutsk Aviation Plant. The 30-minute flight was performed at an altitude of 1,000 metres with a speed of 300 km/h. The flight plan included stability, handling and engine controllability tests. MC-21-300 is a new generation passenger aircraft with a seating capacity of 163 to 211 passengers that targets the largest aviation segment.

June

On 20 June the UAC presented a refreshed lineup in all key civil aircraft segments at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget: Il-114-300 in the of regional turboprop segment, Sukhoi Superjet 100 in the regional jet segment, MC-21 in the long-haul narrow-body segment and CR929 aircraft in the long-haul wide-body segment. At the press conference held by the Russian delegation, the President of the UAC Yuri Slyusar summarized the key priorities of the Corporation, including the increase in the share of civil products in the portfolio and capturing a sizeable share of the global market.

July

Since early July, Superjet 100 aircraft have been used on regular flights to the Stockholm Bromma Airport (Sweden). Though the airport has a relatively short runway of just 1,660 meters, the aircraft only needs a runway of 1,425 meters with a maximum landing weight. To achieve this, the SSJ 100 aircraft had been retrofitted to feature a B100 option that uses an increased-thrust engine, optimised avionics software and high-lift device controls.
