The next stage is to begin in the third quarter of 2020 and will dock wing consoles and assemble tail fins. The glider will then have engines installed. Four assembly platforms have been created. The final stage will include factory and certification trials.

“Il-114-300 is a completely domestic aircraft with modern avionics and a powerful Russian TV7-117ST-01 turboprop engine. It is reliable in harsh operating conditions. It can land on short and dirt airstrips, as well as Arctic ice. I am sure Il-114-300 is the most prospective aircraft in its class,” Rostec aviation cluster Industrial Director Anatoly Serdyukov said.
