Completed basic step test fighter T-50
Layout fighter fifth generation, known as T-50, the air is kept very confident. It showed the tests that are in the Flight Research Institute. MM Gromov.
Completely all Russian aircraft, including combat, begin tests on the base and the role of this institution, and civilians immediately receive certificates entitling them to fly, to transport cargo and passengers. About how to test themselves indicates promising aviation technology, we will talk with the CEO LII. MM Gromov, Hero of Russia, Honored test pilot Pavel Vlasov.
Pavel, showed himself as a combat aircraft T-50?
Pavel Vlasov: In today’s 50-year T successfully graduated from the preparatory factory tests. Done lapping all systems and equipment and initial assessment compliance with the stated features. In the coming year, as, we hope, will start for at least some important military equipment step — inspection and assessment of weapons in the work of the Municipal tests.
And what is the essence of civilian aircraft certification tests?
Pavel Vlasov: Each passenger and cargo aircraft shall be referred to as a type certificate. This is a document confirming that all the stated requirements of the aircraft Aviation Regulation — government, European, American. For example, «Dry Supedzhet» received type certification in 2011, performing in 1093 with a touch of 2000 flight hours. This liner fully meets the requirements of not only a day or current, and the fact that maybe will be taken in the following decades. Every civilian aircraft during certification receives map data, which are permissible operating conditions. Thus, at the time the certificate type in «Superjet» these conditions are much more extensive than, say, the Tu-334, which has received certification several years ago. Not counting the Russian type certificate and at the present moment about 20 extending supplements thereto «Superjet» and has a certificate certifying body euro EASA.
If we are talking about the Tu-334, could you as the manager and how LII test pilot to tell about this car more thoroughly. Not so long ago, in an open letter to the test pilots of Tu-334 served as a candidate, «Superjet» quite superior liner «Dry».
Pavel Vlasov: I have this letter is a double sense. I share the concern of the founders of the state of the aviation industry, but I can not agree with the fact that starting in the current criteria for the Tu-334 — is the salvation for aircraft manufacturers. Tu-334 passed tests in LII really showed his best side. But it impartially plane bygone era Russian aircraft industry. If he joined the airline in 1990, he would be completely, took a worthy place in the Russian fleet. But his time as annoyed it did not sound gone.
Civilian ships are required to have two crew members on the Tu-334 are three of them. Designing and building the aircraft is currently based on digital technologies, and documentation on the Tu-334 is made to the drawings. Certainly, it is possible to digitize documentation retool creation, set on the Tu-334 a more modern avionics, new engines, and even remove the crew of a flight engineer. But it will claim the cash costs comparable with the creation of a new aircraft.
In «Superjet» access to different operating conditions fully competitive. He created and established its creation. Also do not forget that on the approach more modern ship — MS-21, which is the beginning of the test LII preparing in full swing. So that my colleagues do not fully impartial in assessing the Tu-334 — the aircraft decent, but missed his time.
LII. MM Gromov known private school test. Whom and for whom it is prepared now?
Pavel Vlasov: In the past year the school completed over two hundred engineers, five pilots and two navigators. It is prepared not only those who sit behind the wheel of the new aircraft, and those who provide the whole process of flight tests, those who work on the flight-testing and debugging bases aviation companies where test units. Engineers fly planes laboratories, also on the huge liners when there set test equipment. All technical experts at studying in our school, have higher education. In 2014 received applications for training aircrew 9 people — 2-navigators and pilots 7, and about two hundred engineers of various specialties.
