The stuffing of a new Baikal aircraft is argued in Buryatia
Engineers cannot agree on the technical characteristics of the new Baikal aircraft. Specialists of the aviation plant in Ulan-Ude are ready to make it from composite materials, however, according to other experts, they are not suitable for the conditions of the Russian north.
As reported on its page On social networks, the former head of Buryatia, and now deputy chairman of one of the committees of the Federation Council, Vyacheslav Nagovitsyn, he discussed this issue with the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation. Denis Manturov confirmed that the aircraft will be built at the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant.
Most likely, the aircraft will be single-rotor designed for 9-12 seats. According to the head of the relevant ministry, it is necessary to build it not from composite materials, but from a light aluminum alloy. The composite may be uncompetitive due to the high price and complexity of repairs in winter conditions.
At the same time, the plant’s engineers say that they are ready to finalize the “composite” aircraft and meet the price that will be competitive in the market. Earlier it was reported that the Ministry of Industry and Trade signed a contract to develop an airplane to replace AN-2. This right was granted to the Irkutsk company Baikal Engineering. It is planned to spend more than 1,2 billion rubles on development.
