Events :: SkyDream Информационные сообщения ru Thu, 29 Jun 2017 16:37:24 +0400 AN-70 will fly past Russia to Iran. <p> Iran could obtain Ukrainian aircraft, rejected by the Russian Air Force<br /> <br /> Ukrainian airline "Antonov" by midsummer develop the turbojet modification of the An-70, rejected by Russia. Aircraft have decided to get rid of Russian parts to equip the US-French engines and selling, particularly in Iran. The expert believes that there may be political issues: Europe can be against supply in the country, is considered an outcast.<br /> <br /> Ukrainian State Enterprise "Antonov", which created more than 20 years in conjunction with the Russian military transport aircraft An-70, plans to make on its basis another machine, completely free from Russian parts, and sell it abroad, primarily in Iran. This was told by a senior representative of the company.<br /> In 2012, then-Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said that the Russian Air Force can purchase 60 aircraft AN-70. In the summer of 2014 due to the hostilities in the south-eastern Ukraine, where Kiev authorities accuse the Russian, Ukrainian President Poroshenko banned Ukrainian enterprises of the military-technical cooperation with Russia.<br /> <br /> In late February, the An-70 was excluded from the Russian state arms program - instead he decided to develop the project IL-476.<br /> <br /> "Even before the failure of the Russian An-70, we started to look for alternative markets for this aircraft, because the aircraft is great. And one of the options that we calculate - is the supply of this machine to Iran. Now, our Iranian partners are studying this proposal, we hope that by the summer of 2015 will be a decision ", - said the source.<br /> <br /> In 2001, "Antonov" organized in Iran assembly of passenger turboprop aircraft An-140 is currently being discussed assembly turbojet AN-148 and AN-158.<br /> <br /> An-70 - Soviet military transport aircraft, which began to develop in 1976. Its main feature was a short takeoff and landing on unpaved airfields. However, the first flight of the aircraft performed only in 1994, when Russia and Ukraine were already different states. The aircraft was decided to bring to the serial production due to the equity financing of the two countries, despite the two plane crashes: in 1994 the first prototype ran in the air with another aircraft, and in 2001 a second prototype crashed due to failure of two engines during takeoff. This airplane was restored, and now it is the only instance of a flying AN-70.<br /> <br /> One of the designers of the An-70 explained that because of the ban on military-technical cooperation with Russia AN-70 to get rid of Russian components.<br /> <br /> In this case, instead of the original screw-fan engines D-27 screws which makes the Russian plant, aircraft turbofan engines are going to install the CMF-56 produced by the French company Snecma and American General Electric. These engines are installed on the last modifications Boeing-737 and A-320, on the basis of CMF-56 produced the SaM146 engine for the aircraft "Sukhoi Superjet".<br /> <br /> "The plane will be called the An-188. From An-70 there will be only a glider glider because he is magnificent. And everything else will be different. First of all, we will deliver it new engines instead of screw Ukrainian Russian screws will stand the French motors, which now stand at A-320 (CMF-56). Appropriately modified and interior equipment, "- said one of the designers of the An-70.<br /> <br /> He added that the project AN-188 will be ready by the summer of 2015.<br /> <br /> Head of branch agency "Airport" Oleg Panteleyev said that the idea to establish the marketing of AN-70 / AN-188 to Iran looks very shaky.<br /> <br /> "Iran, of course, there are problems with the purchase of aircraft in other countries, and if they need a military transport aircraft, the An-70 would fit. Another thing is whether the "Antonov" to adjust its production without Russian components, given that even the aluminum fuselage was delivered from Russia, not to mention the landing gear, avionics and propulsion system components. Until the summer of the maximum that can be done - is to draw a leaflet. A redesign of the aircraft under the new engines and new components will take 2-3 years, and provided stable funding, "- said Panteleyev.<br /> <br /> He also did not rule out that the Western manufacturers of aircraft engines, which are going to use the "Antonov", can veto the sale of the aircraft to Iran, which is still under numerous Western sanctions.<br /> <br /> "Of course, to support the" Antonov ", the US and EU sanctions may weaken, but this is highly unlikely. If the delivery will be made to bypass the sanctions have a negative impact on companies producing, "- said Panteleyev.<br /> <br /> However, he stressed that the willingness of An-70 project is very high and try to find this aircraft market need right now.<br /> <br /> Iran's representative to the ASTC "Antonov" for two days did not answer. Vice President - Deputy General Designer, Marketing, Sales and Aftersales Alexander Kiva explained that intergovernmental agreements do not allow "Antonov" to comment on the deal to their conclusion. </p> Fri, 06 Mar 2015 21:35:31 +0400 foreign airlines are buying dismissed because of the crisis Russian pilots <p> Foreign airlines are buying fallen under reduction in Russian pilots, in particular former members of "UTair" and "Nordwind". About this newspaper "Izvestia". </p> <p> According to the newspaper, Russians take a job at Turkish Airlines, Qatar Airways, Korean Air, Air China Cargo, Vietnam Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines and Taiwan's Eva Air. Also continue to gain Russian pilots and Emirates. </p> <p> "We received about 250 resumes from Russian competitors. Basically it is the commanders of aircraft and flight attendants. Basically it is a former pilot "UTair", "Nordwind" and "Icarus", "- said the representative of the Irish recruitment company Direct Personnel Derek Doyle. </p> <p> Interest of foreign airlines to the Russians also confirmed in the Russian employment agency "Aviapersonal." </p> Tue, 10 Feb 2015 11:53:11 +0400 ​"Geophysics" flies to bypass sanctions <p> <span style="background-color: initial;">Legendary aircraft "Geophysics" will serve as the Europeans, despite sanctions</span> </p> <p> 05.02.2015, 13:57 | Paul Kotlyar </p> <p> European scientists are in need of unique Russian aircraft "Geophysics" to study the atmosphere at an altitude of 20 km. The joint project will help better predict climate change and Russian aviators - save the legendary car. </p> <p> Two high-altitude aircraft - the legendary American U-2 and the unique Russian M-55 "Geophysics" - have a long history in which the fate of both cars were intertwined with each other. Today, M-55, the brainchild of the Cold War, must unite scientists at a time when relations between Russia and Europe cooled off as ever over the past decade. </p> <p> When in 1954 in Washington knew about the presence of Soviet strategic bomber M-4 (Myasishchev) First, the ability to deliver nuclear weapons to the United States, immediately there was a question - how many of them actually in the USSR - the units, tens or hundreds? </p> <p> To answer this question, in the United States to urgently develop a high-altitude spy plane U-2, which was inaccessible to fly on airplanes interceptors record altitude of 20 km and photographing sensitive sites. </p> <p> It became clear that the number of M-4 tens, and strategic advantages in the Soviet Union has no bombers. However, after the Soviet anti-aircraft missiles S-75 and shot down in 1960 over Sverdlovsk pilot Powers U-2 flights over the Soviet Union ceased. </p> <p> Then the US began to run over the USSR altitude balloons carrying 50 kg intelligence apparatus. Balls were a real headache for the Soviet military: using the prevailing wind rose, they could with impunity fly over the European part of the USSR, and keep track of everything that you want. To deal with them was extremely difficult - thousands of slow-moving purposes flew to the ceiling opportunities interceptor that simply slipped past them, and if the shells fell and then pierced through the thin shell, without exploding. Then Vladimir Myasishcheva tasked to develop a Soviet high-altitude aircraft to combat balls - low-speed and able to reach a height of 20 km. </p> <p> So in 1978, was created by single-engine aircraft M-17 c two-beam scheme and extended wing, equipped with a cannon shell which are extremely sensitive - it explodes from a collision with a drop of rain. </p> <p> The tests were successful and by the early 80s fly balls stopped. Of high-altitude fighter balloons were asked to scout. Flying along the state border at an altitude of 20 km, a single twin-engine M-17RM could "look" for hundreds of kilometers into the territory of neighboring states. In 1988-1992, was made four year old sample and two samples for static tests, the aircraft passed the stage of factory tests, and state tests were started. </p> <p> Due to changes in our country in the early '90s unique myasischevsky plane was out of work, but thanks to scientific contacts in Central upper-air observatory plane managed to interest European scientists. The fact that for climate and atmospheric processes requires measurements at altitudes that are available only when TR-1, made by the American U-2. However, two such planes belonging NASA, there was a huge turn and European attempts to use them have been unsuccessful - they performed essentially American experiments. Therefore, in 1993, the Europeans are interested in the opportunity to conduct research in the former Soviet spy plane, which could also climb to an altitude of 20 km. </p> <p> So on the basis of the fourth flight model in 1996 was created single-seater Laboratory M-55, known as "Geophysics", which was to serve as a non-military, scientific goals. </p> <p> Russian "Geophysics" was unpretentious American "spy." TR-1, though flying further, requires a special fuel, and landing requires special tricks - it is accompanied by landing the pilot on a sports car, which helps the pilot, but in the end the team must run a special "catch" the plane and set the underwing landing gear, which resets the aircraft during takeoff. In addition, the US aircraft at an altitude of 20 km very low pressure in the cabin, so the flight was comparable to the yield in a spacesuit into space, which prepared a few hours. </p> <p> All these features M-55 deprived and can be used with any airfield Class 2 refueling conventional jet fuel. </p> <p> In 1995, a contract was signed, under which the plane was shot unnecessary hardware and installs the Italian scientific instruments. The first expedition took place in Finland. Then, with the participation of many European institutions held about 20 other expeditions: M-55 flew in the Arctic, Antarctica, over the Indian Ocean, Africa, Brazil and Australia. Flying on a certain route, aircraft, equipped with a large set of physical devices, capable of doing "slice" of air flow to obtain a complete picture of the processes. </p> <p> Transformed for scientific purposes, has become modified and the plane itself: he gained special fairings on the fuselage and underwing nacelles, which housed the measuring instruments. All this has worsened the aerodynamics of the aircraft and fuel consumption increased by 8%. But after that the plane was so "volatile" (aerodynamic efficiency of the order of 21) </p> <p> that in order to effectively reduce a height of 20 km the pilot has to release the brake flaps and landing gear. Instruments and filled the bow section where the antenna used to be. </p> <p> Flying at an altitude of 20 km is associated with two major difficulties. Firstly, there is the atmospheric pressure by more than 10 times lower than that of the land. Therefore, from 5 tons of thrust each of the two engines on the 20 km is only 650 kg. Secondly - the air temperature can drop to -90 degrees. </p> <p> Now Experimental Machine Building Plant im.V.M.Myasischeva, began to prepare the aircraft for a new large-scale European research program StratoClim, which will be held in a joint project with the Commission, the Council of Europe. In this expedition will be attended by scientists from 26 institutions in Europe and Russia. For many years, scientists have created a sophisticated mathematical model of Earth's atmosphere, predicting climate change in the years ahead. </p> <p> The global objective of the project - making measurements in different parts of the world, to verify the accuracy of these models. </p> <p> peace scout </p> <p> During the expedition, which will begin at the end of 2015, the researchers plan to investigate in detail the so-called Asian monsoon - the seasonal movement of tropical air masses that originate in the region of the Philippines, and sent through the Arabian Peninsula in the direction of the Mediterranean. The peak of this phenomenon is observed in India, where he planned to spend the basic surveillance summer 2016. </p> <p> "From a US aircraft ER-2, Global Hawk, WB57 can climb to such a height, but they are not available to foreign scientists for 15 years. Furthermore, ER-2 plane has only one motor, but it is not able to land and take off in high winds. Global climate change and the processes of their cause - urgent issues to be addressed by the international scientific community as quickly as possible. The political situation may hinder such investigations, but fortunately, so far our cooperation not interfere with political issues, "- said Fred Shtro, head of the research program StratoClim Research Center Jülich, Germany. </p> <p> During the flight will be studied temperature, chemical composition, ozone, aerosol distribution, electrical and optical parameters of the atmosphere, various contaminants, X-ray and gamma-ray bursts. "Aircraft manufactured in 1991. And now we come to the time when the allied not extend the life of components and the plane needs to be upgraded, "- said the chief designer of EMR them. Gennady V. Myasishev Belyaev. </p> <p> Therefore, the contract is estimated at several million euros, was entered value necessary modernization of the aircraft. "This is an experimental aircraft, we are moving away from analog technology, and it becomes more modern with the use of digital technologies" - adds Belyaev. </p> <p> Giving a second life to the legendary aircraft, pilots myasischevskie hope to attract the attention of the Ministry of Defense to "Geophysics", whose special qualities are still waiting for their applications. </p> Thu, 05 Feb 2015 15:37:53 +0400 Su-35s arrive in troops from foreign components <p> <span style="background-color: initial;">Multipurpose fighter Su-35C, which until the end of the year told to take the Air Force Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, go to the troops with foreign components. Import substitution program for this machine is not designed or approved, and on how many cars purchased enough equipment and devices is unknown.</span> </p> <p> The fact that the Su-35C will go to the army with imported components said a source in the Military-Industrial Commission under the Government of Russia. </p> <p> "Abroad, including the Ukraine, produce individual components and assemblies. There's the whole board electronics is built on foreign element base. And given that this is a completely electronic aircraft is a serious problem. </p> <p> We have no such components and is not expected. What to do about it has not been decided, the first aircraft will be used for that is - that is, the foreign elements - and will continue to think " </p> <p> However, he declined to name specific units, citing commercial and state secrets. The representative of the <span style="background-color: initial;">Military Industrial Complex </span><span style="background-color: initial;">said that if stocks run out of imported parts and supplies will cease production of the Su-35C will be frozen and transferred to the Air Force at the machines will begin to repair the problem. At the same time he called Shoigu order to begin deliveries of Su-35C to the troops "very real."</span> </p> <p> Sergei Shoigu announced plans in 2015 to refurbish the Russian army </p> <p> Shoigu tightens figures </p> <p> Sergei Shoigu announced plans rearmament of the Russian army in 2015. The main trend - increasing the share of modern military equipment ... → </p> <p> On Wednesday at a conference in the new control center called the country's defense Shoigu supply Su-35C to the army one of the priorities. </p> <p> "The main challenge for this year - to provide quality testing of the aircraft and bring it to the characteristics of the tactical and technical requirements of the job" - said Shoigu. </p> <p> Su-35C was developed in 2006 based on the multi-purpose fighter Su-35, which, in turn, is an extension of the famous Su-27. Another modification of the aircraft - the Su-30 - is supplied to the troops. </p> <p> The new aircraft is equipped with a radar with a phased antenna array (gives a picture of the situation of high-definition) and motors allows us to develop a supersonic cruising speed (the same engines are on the "fifth-generation fighter" T-50). </p> <p> In the United Aircraft Corporation declined to comment on the situation, saying that "the problems with the production of Su-35C we have." At the same time, a source close to the corporation "Sukhoi", explained that the number of components of the aircraft can not be replaced ever. </p> <p> "Basically, there is a foreign components every" rassypuha "- for example, valves, nasosik adjustment and so on. They penny, but it takes time to get them to do here. But the problem is not with them, and in the electronic element base, which no one is even going to have to do. A number of chips, we can not be replaced by anything, so you have to buy them off the shelf. This is dangerous, because they though made in Asia, developed in Western countries, primarily the United States. And no one can guarantee that there is not some bookmarks and stuff "- noted" </p> <p> He added that the replacement of Ukrainian parts while it is not because there are no problems with them - Ukrainians continue to supply, although officially broke and cooperation with Russia. </p> <p> "We do not care - it will be Ukrainian or Ukrainian details. And it is difficult to say how events will unfold. Maybe they will continue to supply them quietly, "- said the representative of the company" Sukhoi ". </p> <p> Principal analyst at the agency "Airport" Oleg Panteleyev said, that the main problem is the desirability of import substitution. </p> <p> "When abandon imported components and develop their need at any cost, that's no problem. The only question is the amount of money that will be required, and the time it will take. It should be understood that the plane, even the military - it's still not an intercontinental missile, and certain parameters of profitability and reasonable time must be maintained. This raises two points: when it comes to unique products that produce one or two companies in the world, it is certainly a dangerous addiction and need to go away from it. And if that Korean chip for $ 10 for a handful - that no relationship is no problem too, "- said Panteleyev. </p> <p> According to him, if the presence of imported components in the aircraft for the military is not critical, then start deliveries to the troops, you can now, and if there is a threat of termination of deliveries - in parallel with deliveries to begin to develop and produce Russian counterparts. </p> <p> Particular attention is paid to Panteleev called counterparties of "dry", which can also be used in the manufacture of components and assemblies critical imported components. </p> <p> "Something" Dry "buys abroad himself, and buys something from Russian suppliers as Russian products. But it is important to understand the extent to which these providers themselves use foreign components " </p> <p> - Said the expert. </p> <p> At the same time he is confident that the production chain Debugging aircraft take "no month or year." "This is a long-term process, and just like that, at the behest of the minister, to change everything at once is impossible. Again, you need to understand, at whose expense it will all be done, "- said Panteleyev. </p> Thu, 05 Feb 2015 13:00:49 +0400 Russian carriers are asked to postpone the delivery of Boeing aircraft <p> Russian carriers are asked to postpone the delivery of Boeing aircraft, contracts have already been signed. The fall of the ruble made unprofitable use of new aircraft, so airlines are struggling to delay their preparation, and will fly on older machines, experts explain.<br /> <br /> Russian air carriers have begun negotiations with Boeing to postpone planned for 2016 aircraft deliveries. In an interview with Bloomberg said senior vice president John Vodzhik. "We are working with our customers and try to go for change" - said vice-president of Boeing.<br /> <br /> Russian air carriers, said Vodzhik are in difficult financial situation.<br /> <br /> However, deliveries planned for 2015, to postpone unlikely. Production schedule ordered aircraft can not be changed, said Vodzhik, so Russian airlines generally have to pay and receive the ordered aircraft.<br /> <br /> In particular, the two liners Boeing-747-8 for "Transaero". But, according to Vodzhika, Boeing, and here is negotiating with the company about a possible alternative solution, "given its financial situation."<br /> <br /> Russian air carriers suffer from reduced passenger growth - a trend that began in 2014, together with a reduction in real incomes. Aviaotrasli fixes losses.<br /> <br /> In 2015, passenger traffic will start to decline, says consultant Air Transport Andrey Kramarenko.<br /> <br /> About what exactly the company was asked to delay the delivery Vodzhik not say. "All of the big four Russian air carriers could do it," - says Kramarenko. This "Aeroflot", "UTair", "Transaero" and "Siberia". At the same time they are negotiating not only with Boeing, but most likely with Airbus.<br /> <br /> Russian airlines are now unprofitable to buy or acquire leasing new cars.<br /> <br /> "In the past, when the ruble was stable and even strengthened against the dollar and the price of kerosene grew, Russian airlines gladly taken the aircraft from the factory" - resembles Kramarenko. Such aircraft consume less expensive kerosene, and leasing, as recorded in the currency in ruble remained unchanged, and sometimes even became cheaper, which offset fuel costs. Against the background of the devaluation of the ruble cost structure of aircraft changed. "The ruble collapsed, leasing prices have doubled, and the price of kerosene is not growing at least a few months against the background of pressure from the government and the decline in oil prices," - says Kramarenko.<br /> <br /> "As a result, for the airlines becomes more profitable exploitation of the old park, that is inexpensive aircraft, which for 10-15 years, that penny in leasing," - said Kramarenko.<br /> <br /> These machines consume more fuel than new models, but it is quite covered by savings in leasing.<br /> <br /> It is likely that as a result of Boeing agree to the postponement of deliveries. Russia accounts for less than 10% of sales of commercial aircraft Boeing. Last year the company supplied to Russia 12 passenger aircraft. "The market deficit. For the "refuseniks" formed a queue ", - says expert aviation market.<br /> <br /> However, even if the manufacturer does not make concessions, Russian airlines will be able to deliver the aircraft in the sublease and avoid financial losses.<br /> <br /> "The main value of this news to start negotiations with Boeing - it is quite clear message that all caught that the crisis will be. If a few months ago, everyone thought that the crisis will be, but not for them and not here, now Russian air carriers realized that he did not pass, and it is necessary to solve the problem as soon as possible "- sums Kramarenko. </p> Thu, 22 Jan 2015 16:25:35 +0400 "Aeroflot" and S7 asked the government to support the entire aviation industry <p> "Aeroflot" and the airline "Siberia» (S7) appealed to the First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, Russia with a request for state support, "Interfax" reports, citing sources.<br /> <br /> In a letter to Shuvalov company asked the authorities to extend financial support to the entire aviation industry, not only on individual companies.<br /> <br /> In December last year, the government has supported state guarantees in the amount of up to 9 billion rubles. "Transaero", and Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said that the state guarantees can also count and the airline "UTair". </p> Tue, 20 Jan 2015 23:52:09 +0400 ​Air Europa has ordered 14 aircraft Dreamliner for $ 3.6 billion <p> Air Europa has ordered 14 aircraft Dreamliner for $ 3.6 billion<br /> Spanish airline Air Europa has ordered 14 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft worth $ 3.6 billion at list prices, reports Agence France-Presse.<br /> <br /> The order was the largest in the history of Boeing widebody aircraft on order for Spanish carriers.
