Moscow, Russia - Russia's state-owned United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) is close to assembling the first Il-114-300 turboprop aircraft. The primary airframe parts are now ready to be sent to the final assembly line at the Lukhovistsky plant near Moscow.

Three fuselage parts will be transferred from the Sokol manufacturing plant in Nizhny Novgorod to the Lukhovistsky plant in Moscow by the end of May.

According to UAC, the first copy will be a prototype that will be used during the airworthiness campaign.

The Il-114-300 is a 68-seat revamped version of the Il-114 turboprop passenger aircraft. The aircraft is designed for autonomous operations in remote areas, where airport services are not available. The aircraft will replace older generation Antonov turboprops operated by regional carriers.

The Il-114-300 will be built “entirely from in-house components produced by leading Russian manufacturers. Cargo carriers are also potential customers of the type along with the regional airlines.
