Il-114

There are plans to resume production of the Il-114 – but what exactly are its prospects?

The plan to resume Il-114 production in Russia, about which AIR International wrote a year ago, is still going on, but the deadlines are shifting to the right. A year ago the commencement of production of the renewed Il-114- 300 in Russia was scheduled for 2019, but now 2021 is mentioned.

In May 2016 the Sokol plant of Nizhny Novgorod, a facility belonging to MiG, was selected to produce the aircraft. In January 2017 United Aircraft Corporation President Yury Slusar revealed the target production rate will be 12 aircraft a year.

Funding Question

Real actions are not going beyond paper and declarations. On December 26, 2016, the Russian government decided to grant RUB 1.517 billion (about $25 million according to present currency rate) to the United Aircraft Corporation for the company to launch series production of the Il-114-300 aircraft, and a further R783 million to United Engine Corporation for the aircraft’s TV7-117SM engine.
