The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) have completed the first flight session for certifying Russian airliner MC-21, the Russian manufacturer Irkut Corporation said in a press release.
During the certification tests, the behavior of MC-21-300 aircraft was evaluated in various modes, including high angles of attack and stalling. Flights duration from 2.5 to 4 hours were performed at altitudes from 3 to 10 km, the release said.
In September 2018, EASA test crew completed a special course in theoretical and practical training to fly on MC-21-300 aircraft.
Irkut says the test crews also featured both EASA and Russian engineers tasked with analysing the flight parameters.
Irkut is striving to certify the MC-21 both in Russia and Europe. The flight-test fleet comprises three completed aircraft, two of which have been flown.
Technodinamika has completed the fire protection and oxygen system units qualification test in December 2018 for civil aviation aircraft SSJ-100 and MC-21. “The fire protection system units will be sent to Sukhoi Civil Aircraft for additional certification tests in the SSJ-100 aircraft during the spring of 2019, under the import substitution program
Mass production of the Russian MC-21 Airliner will commence sometime in 2019 as the various enterprises of United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) have begun to manufacture parts and units of MC-21-300 aircraft intended for delivery to customer who have placed orders to buy the aircraft. “In 2018 flight and ground certification tests of aircraft prototype confirmed the main design solutions
Russias Rostec state corporation which recently took over United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) plans to invest 55 billion rubles ($834 Million) in the MC-21 airliner project. The inclusion of UAC into Rostec is expected to increase the revenues of its aviation cluster to 1 trillion rubles ($15 billion) said Director of Rostecs aviation cluster, Anatoliy Serdyukov
The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) have conducted preliminary examination flights of Russian airliner MC-21-300 and will soon conduct certification tests. The EASA test pilots have performed the following procedures on the simulators and test benches: take-off, approach and landing using both landing systems and visual approaches; handling qualities and controllability characteristics of MC-21-300 aircraft in various control modes within the entire range of admissible operating altitudes, speeds, weights and centres of gravity; actions in case of emergency; and approaching high angles of attack, when the stall warning activates
