Russian Aircraft

Fri Jan 12, 2001 6:36 pm

Does anybody know if the Russian still deliver Airplanes.

Back in 1998 Tupolev, Antonov and the other Russian were designing new aircraft.

I would like to know if they still deliver new aircrafts because I see a lot of Russian planes in my neighbourhood.

Greetings

Yes, they still do, at least the "Big 3" (i.e. Antonov, Ilyushin and Tupolev). Only about 10 per year or so, because there are not many orders.

Tupolev (Russia) is currently producing Tu-204s, with the Tu-214 and Tu-334 under development. The Tu-154 is still being built by Aviakor, but this production will cease in 2001.

Ilyushin (Russia) is producing the Il-96-300. The Il-96M is still on the production line, and the first 3 for Aeroflot are in various stages of manufacture

Ilyushin (Uzbekistan) is producing the Il-114 turboprop regional. So far Uzbekistan Airways is the only airline operating this aircraft, but agreement has been reached with Iran for licenced production to occur under the name IRAN-114.

Antonov (Ukraine) is producing the An-124, An-224, An-72/74. The An-70 and An-140 are still being produced but so far, there are no operators of the aircraft.

Other companies such as Beriev, Mil Helicopters, Kazan Helicopters, Sukhou, MiG all have various plans for different civilian and general aircraft and helicopters.

What about production numbers for 1999 and 2000; should we consider assembling 1-2 Yakovlevs, still a full time production?

Also, I'm not sure if TU-154s are being produced; there have been some 14 aicraft frames that have never been finalized. Perhaps this line is perfoming some sort of Russian C-check (which is much different than the standard western one)?

The 14 unfinished airframes at Aviakor, are apparently going to be finished, and leased to a lessor, for onward leasing. After these 14 Tu-154M airframes are complete, the Tu-154 programme will come to an end. From what I understand 1 airframe has been completed, and the other 13 are yet to be approved for completion.

In addition to this, Aviakor is involved in the maintenance and upgrading of existing 154Ms, as well as development of the Tu-334 and is also working on the An-140/An-70 project.

Their website (in Russian) is http://www.aviacor.ru

As to the Yakovlev Yak-42D-90, there were plans for the production to continue at the Saratov Aviation Plant, but whether any aircraft have been produced as yet is not confirmed (I am trying to get confirmation though).

Well you may not see Russian aircraft in Pakistan for much longer. It has just been announced that Chelal - Chelyabinsk Airlines is ceasing all leasing operations to Pakistani airlines because of a bad record in non-payment of lease payments. It is also expected that other Russian airlines are going to follow suit. Affected airlines will be Aero Asia, Bhoja Air and Shaheen Air.

Have just had it confirmed from Moscow that the last Yakovlev Yak-42D rolled off the production line in 1989. Can try and obtain serial numbers and recipient if you need them.

Cheers

One more thing to add, the AN-140 has been in operation with Iranian Airlines for a little while, they got it first to try it out, and there may be a large order as well as a contract to build some of them there.

the last Yakovlev Yak-42D in 1989? And what about Yak-142? Do they build/going to build Yak-242 (two engined)? In late 80's there was also such a name as Yak-46. Do you have any information about it (or it is another name of one of the above)?

Here is a report on the IRAN-140 from September 2000. It isn't in service yet, and it also hasn't made it's maiden flight.

The Iranian authorities have reported that the first IRAN-140, the An-140 built under licence by the Iranians, has been completed.

The rollout of the aircraft at Iran Aircraft Manufacturing Industries Company in Esfahan , was the result of an agreement originally signed by the Iranians in 1996 to produce the aircraft initially from kits and move onto local manufacture . The contract for the initial 80 aircraft for military and civil use was signed in 1998. The first customers for the aircraft are likely to be Iran Air, Iran Asseman Airlines and the Iranian Navy and Air Force. The Iranian aircraft was previously reported to have been powered by an up rated TV3-117MA-SBMI for hot high operation.

According to Minister of Transport Ali Hojjati, the aircraft will fly at the end of March 2001 and has been produced not only to meet Russian standards, but also FAR and JAA. The second aircraft is due to be completed by the end of the year and earlier reports have suggested that the Iranian's will produce 12 aircraft a year under the licence. There are however, conflicting reports from the Iranian Defence Minister Ali Shamkhani, suggesting that the aircraft could be in-service as early as February of 2001.

The sales of the aircraft in the Ukriane are reported to have recently recieved a boost from reports of an agreement for Antonov to provide up to five aircraft under a wet lease for Ukrianian carrier Aerosvit to provide feeder services . According to Antonov, the reportedly hourly deal, will allow better evaluation of the aircraft in service.

Yak-42 : Original model from 1980

Yak-42A : Higher range and updated configuration. Only ever announced as a "possibility" (1997 I think)

Yak-42D : Increased fuel capacity and changed configuration. It is the D model which re-entered production in 1985 after intial problems with the Yak-42's tail section.

Yak-42E-LL : Engine test-bed, demonstrated at the 1991 Paris Air Show.

Yak-42F : Aerial photography variant

Yak-42M : A variant of the Yak-42D, which I think was going to use Perm engines. No further plans for this aircraft....yet.

Yak-46 : RIX...I take it you read Russian. There is a great page on the Yak-46 at http://aviahistory.newmail.ru/book/jakovlev/htm/jak46.htm. Basically, the Yak-46 was to be a two engined variant (picture at the bottom of this post). It was on the drawing boards, and the first flight was expected in 1995, but with most things in Russian aviation, after the break-up of the Soviet Union, plans were cancelled. Also called the Yak-242

Yah-142 : Example with western engines which has never entered production

Yak-242 : see Yak-46

Brissie_lions,
the Yak 142 has Western avionics but the Russian D 36 engines. One was built, RA-42424, cn 4520421302016; it was first painted in green demo cs, and now belongs to Lukoil. It was built in 1992.
34 YAK 42-D were built AFTER 1992. Gazpromavia uses some of the newest Yak 42-D (RA-42436, 437, 451, 438, 439).

An Ukrainian airline, Ikar, has also one AN 140. I saw a photo on Flight Intl.

Brissie_lions thanks for the info...but I also read in airways that IranAir was leasing or had a few on loan from Antonov, this was a Ukrainian built version and was for evaluation purposes only not sure if it has since been returned.... I too heard about the Aerosvit deal and it would be a great deal for the airplane, but I am not sure of the accuracy of the report....it stated that Aerosvit operated the 737-200 and -300 and I don;t think they have the -300's in which case it could be that Ukraine International also has plans for the airplane. I remember that a few years ago they had a DO-328 leased doing domestic runs for them...the AN140 would be an awsome plane for both Aerosvit and UIA to expand their domestic network while remaining with a ver modern fleet.
