According to the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, a fully import-substituted SSJ-100 aircraft will appear at the end of 2023.
“As the import substitution program is completed, there will be an opportunity to launch a fully import-substituted version. If we take the Superjet, this will happen at the end of next year, when we will have a fully Russian PD-8 engine and all 27 systems that were imported will be replaced,” he said. And then he added: “If we get new versions of the Superjet at the end of next year, then for the MS-21 it will be the end of 2024.”
As a reminder, the head of the government Mikhail Mishustin earlier said that the MC-21 will be fully produced from Russian components in a few years. However, it is designed to use another domestic engine, the PD-14.
The United Aircraft Corporation has announced a plan to increase production of the MC-21 to 36 units per year by 2025, and then to double that number. It is also planned to increase the production of SSJ-100.
