Irkut Yak-242/MS-21

First flight year —

Yak-242 (which is also known as MS-21) is the proposed series of three twin-engine mid-range Russian jet airliners with a capacity of 150-212 passengers being developed and to be produced by Irkut Corporation and Yakovlev Design Bureau of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) group.

The initial design is to include composite materials and new metal alloys deployment, modern onboard systems and new-built engines. The designer plans that the MS-21 will be 10-15% more efficient than current Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 aircraft in the same class and it will have structural weight efficiency advantage, lower operating costs, and lower fuel consumption.

MS-21 family will include:

MS-21-200 - baseline model with 150 seats in single-class configuration;

MS-21-300 – increased capacity up to 181 passengers;

MS-21-400 - stretched model with up to 212 passengers.

Each of these models will have variants with extended ranges.

Completion of the first prototype is expected in 2013, the first flight in 2014 and deliveries commencing in 2016.

I really doubt that this plane will be more efficient than the Airbus and Boeing models with very advanced Western engines.
