Do Russian Aircraft Have Fbw?

Mon Jun 04, 2001 12:01 pm

The ANT124 and 225 are FBW but have conventional sticks (like the 777).

YQfca,

With all due respect, the AN-124 and 225 are NOT fly-by-wire aircraft. However, the IL-96 is FBW.

You are right the ANT 124 and 225 do not have just fly by wire but a quadruple fly by wire control system.

Lots of people seem to think the Russian aircraft aren't very good - they are. They are a LOT cheaper than Boeing/Airbus and the offer the modernities such as FBW as well.

Poor Russian planes. Just don't get no respect. It's a shame really.

Hi All,

Within the aviation world, Russian planes are known for their durability, ruggedness and utility. They are also known for their poor build quality, inefficient engines and thus their unreliability.

According to some websites regrading Russian aircrafts, I also understand that the TU-204 is Fly-by-wire, a sophicated LCD cockpit, and a "ramshorn" type control (ie concorde).

BTW, anybody how much one of these birds cost? If I win the next lottory, I'll get one.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

With all due respect the AN124 and 225 are NOT Russian Airplanes, but yes they are fly by wire, and were among the first ever to be FBW.

Antonovs are from the Ukraine and not Russia. The new IL96s and TU204s are indeed FBW.
