Manturov: production of Russian MS-21 can reach 100 per year

Manturov: production of Russian MS-21 can reach 100 per year

The head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said that the production of Russian MS-21 aircraft could reach 100 units per year. The first MS-21s will be received by Russian airlines.

Manturov said this on the air of the radio station Vesti FM... He added that first Aeroflot will receive the plane, then Red Wings and others. At the end of next year, four aircraft will be built, in 2023 - already 10-15 aircraft, in another year - about 30, and after 2025 production will be increased to 72 aircraft. Manturov noted that in case of great demand not only within the country, but also abroad, the production of MC-21 will be increased to 100 aircraft per year.

The first MS-21-310 with Russian PD-14 engines was built at the Irkut aircraft plant in November last year. In 2019, the Russian government allocated from the federal budget 1,58 billion to subsidize costs associated with the creation, production, sale and maintenance of aircraft of the MS-21 family. Due to the termination of the supply of composite materials from the United States, the completion of the project was decided shift for a year.

At the end of 2019, Irkutsk hosted flight tests of MS-21... Serial release postponed due to problems with the supply of composite materials... Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the plane risked not being certified in 2020.
