Production of Il-96-300 and AN-148. VASO
• Production of Il-96-300 and AN-148. VASO
from the "flying tank" to side №1. In the shops of the Voronezh aircraft factory for 85 years of its history produced several legends aircraft. During the war - the famous Il-2 (the designers called it "Flying Tank"). At the end of 1960 - the world's first supersonic passenger airliner Tu-144. Today aircraft plant produces IL-96, Ru-148, as well as separate units for SSJ planes 100 and MS-21. Resuming the transfer of the IL-112. It Voronezh Aircraft Manufacturing Company (VASO) produces a major Russian aircraft - a presidential Il-96, better known as the board №1.
the organization of the plant took a decision in 1929. Before 1966, the plant has been a license names: first, №18, №64 then. During the war, production lines were evacuated to Kuibyshev (now - Samara), after the Victory factory in the Voronezh actually rebuilt from scratch.
Voronezh aircraft factory over the years in its history produced such aircraft as the ANT-25 (to them over the North Pole in the US to make flights Chkalov and Gromov), the legendary Il-2 bomber Tu-16 passenger Il-86 and the world's first supersonic airliner Tu-144.
VASO - the country's only producer of long-haul wide-body passenger aircraft IL-96-300.
Created in OKB. Ilyushin with the direct participation VACO prototype first took to the skies 28 September 1988. The flight lasted 40 minutes.
IL-96 was the first Soviet long-haul wide-body aircraft.
A modern Il-96-300 can carry up to 300 passengers. The new modification of IL-96-400M with elongated fuselage, increased wingspan and more powerful engines accommodates up to 435 passengers.
aircraft crew consists of three people (two pilots and a flight engineer). IL-96 was the first aircraft of the family "sludge", in which the team stopped to enter the navigator.
The so-called "glass" cockpit of IL-96-300. The bulk of the aggregate and Flight-navigation information displayed on multiple displays. Traditional round analog instruments only duplicate information. Avionics equipment liner is produced in Russia.
Wingspan Il-96-300 - more than 57 meters, length - 55 meters, maximum takeoff weight of 250 tons and a payload of 40 tons.
The maximum flight range - up to 13 500 km.
IL-96 is lifted into the air by means of the four PS-90A. This is a Russian turbofan engine with a maximum thrust of 16,000 kgf (produced by JSC "Perm Engine Company").
This is the shop of the Voronezh aircraft factory in the second half of the 1960s gathered the world's first supersonic passenger airliner Tu-144. Here at the end of the 1970s, we began to build the Airbus wide-body Il-86.

The diameter of the fuselage of the Il-96-300 -. 6 m 8 cm It is 42 cm less than the 747.

It is difficult to say exactly how much should a wing, but well-known saying, "It is necessary as a wing of the plane" just is the truth, because the cost of all Il-96-300 starts at $ 40 million and very strongly varies depending on the application and configuration of a particular board.
In 2014 VASO received a major order for the production of 14 wide-body Il-96 of various modifications - until 2024. We are primarily talking about the boards for state agencies. Voronezh aircraft production uses a special flight group "Russia" - it serves the country's leadership, including the President of the Russian Federation. VASO also collects planes on order of the Ministry of Defense (in particular, flying command post, which is popularly called "doomsday plane"). It planned and strategic tanker Il-96 base.
An-148 - short-range narrow-body aircraft, developed by ASTC. Antonov (Ukraine).
Holds up to 85 passengers, flight range of around 3,500 km.
The first production aircraft flown on airfield VASO July 19, 2009.
To date, the An-148 in operation in Russia, Ukraine and North Korea.
The global demand for regional jets developer estimates the 500 boards.
In 2015, the President of Ukraine Petr Poroshenko said that selects the AN-148 as its presidential plane.
A wing AN-148 is above the fuselage, due to the large distance from the engine to the ground plane can be operated even with the ground maloprisposoblennyh bands.
During assembly of the wing using the weighting layouts powerplant. Mass yellow cube - about 1400 kg, which corresponds to the mass of the turbomachine D-436-148.
Since 2012, "Angara", based in Irkutsk, operates 5 planes An-148-100E. They repeatedly sat Yakutia overboard at minus 49 ° C and at a horizontal visibility 350 meters.
With stocks VASO went 29 aircraft AN-148 of various modifications. They are operated by the Arctic Ocean, "Russia" and the FSB. Now the company performs custom Russian Ministry of Defense for the supply of 15 aircraft AN-148-100E.
Stand layout for the pre-assembly of the aircraft wiring.
The total length of the wiring, for example, IL-96-300 - 345 km! For comparison, from Moscow to Voronezh, 463 km in a straight line.

The number VASO employees is about 5,000 people.
In the years 2013-14 was resumed program to create a light military transport aircraft Il-112V.

The aircraft is designed to replace veteran of the Antonov An-26. The developer of the Il-112V is the Aviation Complex. Ilyushin, final assembly is performed at VASO.
The aircraft can carry up to 6 tons of cargo (or 40 paratroopers). Range of flight - about 1000 km. Il-112V is equipped with two turboprop engines.
The first Il-112 is planned to lift into the air in the summer of 2017, while the second sample is transferred to the static and fatigue tests.
Series production could start in the area in 2019. VASO capacity allows producing 8-12 Il-112 aircraft per year.
MS-21 - a project of the family of medium passenger aircraft developed by the Yakovlev Design Bureau. Yakovlev and the Corporation "Irkut".
Within the framework of cooperation VASO produces: pylons for engines, flaps and the main front "fuselage-wing" and landing gear fairing elements of vertical and horizontal tail surfaces and other parts of the liner. By 2020, VASO is to supply complete sets of parts for 72 aircraft.
In preparation for the release of the Airbus IL-86 in the late 1970s, the plant had a major reconstruction, were built new assembly workshop area of 48 000 sq. m, mastered the production of parts made of composite materials, machining of long workpieces and other technologies.
In 2006 VASO became part of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), which unites the largest Russian airline.
The test flights of new aircraft VASO implemented on an experimental airfield "Pridacha", located on the premises. At this airfield we tested all types of airplanes, produce VASO.
