MAI-411 Undertakes Technical Training before MAKS-2019
MAI-411 light multi-purpose aircraft, developed at Moscow Aviation Institute (National Research University), now is undertaking technical training to perform at the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2019 at the MAI training and aviation base in Alferevo. The preparation process includes training flights and routine maintenance of customizations of aircraft systems to the optimum level.
MAI-411 flew to the airfield in Alferevo from the Republic of Dagestan, where it is planned to organize serial production of a promising aircraft at the site of Kizlyar Electromechanical Plant. On August 26, a flight is planned from Alferevo to Zhukovsky city near Moscow, where MAKS-2019 will be held from August 27 to September 1, 2019.
MAI-411 light multi-purpose aircraft will be presented at the static parking lot of Kizlyar Electromechanical Plant and will perform demonstration flights as part of the flight program. Participants and guests of the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2019 will be able to appreciate the aerodynamic qualities, the ability to land on unprepared sites and the maneuverability of MAI-411, as well as a spacious cabin that can accommodate the crew and passengers in winter clothes. The aircraft has the ability to install a float and ski landing gear.
MAI-411 was developed at the Industry Special Design Bureau of Experimental Aircraft Engineering of Moscow Aviation Institute with financial support from the Foundation for Assistance to the Development of Small Forms of Enterprises in the Scientific and Technical Field under the "Cooperation" program. The prototype MAI-411 aircraft was developed taking into account the requirements of aviation regulations AP-23, an analogue of the European CS-23 and American FAR-23, and in 2019 it was tested in accordance with FAP-118 and received a certificate of airworthiness of flying vehicle single prototype.
MAI-411 aircraft is made of Russian components, with the exception of two Rotax 912S piston engines, which are produced in Austria and have high-quality dealer support in many countries of the world. A three-layer composite material structure is used in the aircraft fuselage skin. The use of domestic technologies allowed the creation of a twin-engine aircraft with a flight range of up to 1,500 km of lower cost than single-engine western counterparts.
