    EASA Personnel Perform First MC-21 Certification Flights

    by Gregory Polek
    - February 13, 2019, 4:07 PM

    Representatives from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) have completed the first flight session of the MC-21-300 certification program, Russia’s Irkut confirmed Wednesday. During the tests, experts evaluated the behavior of the MC-21 in various operational modes, including high angles of attack and stalls. Flight durations ranged from 2.5 to 4 hours and the aircraft flew at altitudes from 10,000 to 32,000 feet.

    While an EASA test pilot flew the aircraft, another test pilot, from the Yakovlev Design Bureau, monitored the performance of flight modes. Flight crew also included Russian and EASA flight test engineers to analyze flight parameters. Last September EASA test crews completed a special course in theoretical and practical training to prepare them for flying the MC-21.

    As of late last month, two MC-21 prototypes had performed 122 test sorties. Irkut parent United Aircraft expects to finish certification trials in the second half of 2020, enabling first delivery to Aeroflot by the end of that year. Schedules call for first flight of the third prototype to take place imminently, while engineers ready the fourth to join the program in the second quarter of this year. Another specimen for fatigue testing is under assembly, in addition to one already undergoing structural tests at TsAGI. Vendors have begun shipping components for the first production airplane.

    Russia to upgrade Mi-35M helicopters to Mi-35MV level..

    [​IMG]

    The Russian armed forces are launching a large-scale program to upgrade Mi-35M helicopters to Mi-35MV level. They will get new armor, engines and optics to identify and destroy targets at a distance of several kilometers day and night and in any weather. The craft will also get electronic warfare and protection from portable air defense missiles. The upgrade was launched after an analysis of Mi-35M experience in Syria, the Izvestia daily writes.

    WATCH Russian Ship Test Weapon That Renders Enemy Targeting Systems Useless..

    [​IMG]

    The Russian TV channel Zvezda has published a video featuring the test "firing" of a Russian weapon for visual and optical warfare, the 5P-42 "Philin" (Russian for "eagle owl"). The system can be used at night and essentially renders enemy targeting systems, night vision equipment and scopes within a 5 km range useless by "blinding" them. It's also capable of blinding and disorienting enemy personnel within a range of 2 kilometres. The system has already been deployed on several Russian ships.

    Russia designs various models of the Filin optical blinder..

    [​IMG]

    Filin optical disturbance station can blind the adversary at a distance of two kilometers and deny him a chance of precision fire at a warship. Integral Director for quality Vladimir Zharov told the Zvezda broadcaster about the prospective design in the sphere. At present, several models of the blinder are being designed.

    Way to confirm Russian worries after the unilateral abandonment of the ABM treaty by the US (which probably precipitated the Russian moves that now killed the INF treaty along with it and created a general atmosphere of mistrust).

    No lessons learned.

    you really think the Rooskies are worried?? you surely don't do you, paranoid as hell, yes, worried?? Nyet Komrad!

    so what's a marriage license worth, when you're married to a "cheater"?? I guess it would make people who don't know about the "cheating" happy??

    Putin is NOT worried about the Trumpster,, in fact he's planning a victory dance for 2024, with any luck we can keep the love alive with the Pencester??,,, nah, Putin is biding his time until "team stooped" returns to the "White House", he's enjoying the preview in the US House of Representatives!
