Ulyanovsk enterprise AO "Aviastar-SP" is to release ten planes a year starting from 2024
Vladimir Shamanov, Deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, set the task to increase production output.
“Today there are a lot of workers in production facilities of AO "Aviastar-SP" and various fragments of future goods have been presented. We place great hope in the plant's capacity. A military transport aviation regiment placed in Ulyanovsk helps consumers to interact with the manufacturer more closely. Production programmes for creation of the new technological line have been introduced. However, the country leaders have set a more ambitious task to increase production significantly. The break-even level begins with 10 planes a year; this task must be completed since 2023-2024. The enterprise has all necessary things for this purpose, there is enough production space, and higher education institutions of the region are ready to provide highly qualified specialists. We will solve this problem together”, - Vladimir Shamanov noted.
Currently AO "Aviastar-SP" is implementing several projects: production of Il-76MD-90A and Il78-M-90A planes, production of components for MS-21, Il-112B and Il-114-300, and modernization of An-124.
"The enterprise is busy with implementation of the plan for production of modernized Il-76 and Il-78. By gradually increasing output volumes, we will also improve economic indicators, which will affect all inhabitants of the region, their welfare and security", - the Governor Sergey Morozov noted.
According to Sergey Platonov, Chief Technology Officer of AO "Aviastar-SP", upgrade and purchase of new equipment is carried out to complete the task for increase in productivity.
“This year we are planning to finish modernization of the final assembly production to increase the volume of Il-76MD-90A production. We continue improving capacities for technical re-equipment; we have upgraded stamping and galvanic production, as well as the metallurgical one. The project for construction of mechanical frame and assembly productions is in the active stage. About 50 units of machining equipment will be manufactured within this project”, - the head noted.
The plant is going to increase production of Il-76MD-90A aircraft several-fold in 2019. At the same time, the enterprise has about 10 planes of this modification in various states of readiness.
As a reference:
Il-76MD-90A is an upgraded version of the well-known aircraft Il-76. It was originally developed by the Ilyushin Aviation Complex. The new integrated flight and navigation system, the automatic control system, the communications system and the “glass cabin” comply with all up-to-date aircraft avionics requirements and significantly increase the flight safety, navigation and cargo. Replacement of standard D-30KP2 engines with the cutting-edge PS-90A-76 ones, installation of a modified wing and a reinforced landing gear significantly improved the aircraft performance.
