Almost 900 million rubles are planned to be allocated for the creation of the Russian-Chinese CR929 aircraft next year

PJSC United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) next year plans to allocate 897 million rubles for the creation of the Russian-Chinese passenger aircraft CR929. This is indicated in the draft budget for the next three years.

Financing of the project “wide-body long-haul aircraft” is expected within the framework of the state program of scientific and technological development of the Russian Federation. At the same time, it does not include the corresponding expenses for 2024 and 2025.

The CR929 has been developed by the UAC in cooperation with the China Commercial Aviation Corporation (COMAC) for several years. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, it was planned to organize the first test flight of the liner in 2023, and start deliveries to customers after 2025. But in July 2020, the then head of the UAC civilian division, Ravil Khakimov, announced that the start date for deliveries was being shifted to 2028-2029. At that time, he noted, the project was going through the Gate-3 stage – that is, the collection and analysis of proposals from suppliers of systems and assemblies to determine the final configuration of the aircraft.

In August of this year, UAC CEO Yuri Slyusar announced that work on the CR929 continues, but taking into account the consequences of the pandemic and the imposition of new sanctions against the Russian Federation the project will be updated. On September 15, COMAC Chief Scientist Wu Guanghui said that the implementation of a joint Russian-Chinese project to create a long-range wide-body airliner CR929 is at the initial stage of design.
