The Ulyanovsk enterprise Aviastar-SP, which is part of the Aviation Transport Division of PJSC UAC, has completed ground frequency tests of the newest Russian Il-78M-90A tanker, the results of which will be the basis for analyzing possible deviations from the operating standards for the whole life of the aircraft .
"The successful completion of the next stage of tests IL-78M-90A for us is an indicator that we are going in the right direction. We are confident that this convertible aircraft will be extremely in demand both in Russia and abroad. Its capabilities allow for the simultaneous refueling of two aircraft of front-line aviation, and from the tail assembly it is possible to refuel long-range and special aviation aircraft. Currently, the aircraft is on the flight test station to carry out modifications and subsequent stages of flight tests, "said the first deputy general director of the PJSC" S.V. Ilyushin "Pavel Cherenkov.
In turn, deputy director for the production of IL-78M-90A products of JSC Aviastar-SP Nikolay Furtsev said that carrying out frequency tests is a necessary requirement for all new modifications of aircraft that are produced for the first time. "The tests were carried out by specialists of the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute named after Prof. N.E. Zhukovsky by order of PJSC "Aviation Complex named after S.V. Ilyushin. " According to the program, all activities within the framework of this stage have been completed in full and in due time, "he said.
The main purpose of frequency tests is to determine the proper shapes and frequencies of oscillations in the structure of the aircraft and the chassis supports, as well as the frequency characteristics of the automatic control system when interacting with an elastic airplane. During their carrying out on the Il-78M-90A 260 sensors were installed, and fluctuations were caused from 50 points of the glider.
