KRET is ready to equip the Il-114 turboprop passenger aircraft with the entire spectrum of onboard systems, from general aircraft control systems to radars and other airborne defense systems, said Igor Nasenkov, First Deputy CEO of KRET, in an interview with RIA Novosti. KRET enterprises have long worked on the Il-114 passenger aircraft.

"With respect to Il-114, it must first of all be noted that KRET enterprises have long participated in creating this aircraft. The Scientific Research Institute of Aviation Equipment (NIIA) and Ulyanovsk Instrument Manufacturing Design Bureau (UKBP) developed its avionics. KRET will provide the Il-114 with everything it needs, including general aircraft control systems, all types of sensors, fuel systems, and all types of radar and airborne defense systems. All of these are our specialties," said Igor Nasenkov during Dubai Airshow-2015.

The twin-engine Il-114 aircraft can seat 64 passengers and has a flight range of 1,500 kilometers. Ilyushin Design Bureau developed it in the late 1980s for use on regional routes within the USSR. Until 2012, the Il-114 was produced serially at an aviation plant in Tashkent. Around 20 aircraft were built in total.

The aircraft was equipped with avionics developed by domestic firms with the assistance of the Scientific Research Institute of Aviation Equipment (NIIA). The onboard equipment enables the aircraft to land in category II ICAO weather conditions and also includes an automatic flight control system, measurement and display systems for air data, and warning equipment about dangerous flight conditions.

As previously reported, the decision was made to resume production of the Il-114 Russian turboprop regional passenger aircraft. The first aircraft will be built at the Nizhny Novgorod plant Sokol by 2018.

In August 2014, Vladimir Putin instructed the government, the Defense Ministry, and the presidential envoy to the Volga Federal District to assess the feasibility of the mass production of the Il-114 in Russia. The Nizhny Novgorod plant Sokol and the Samara plant Aviakor were chosen as the production sites for the Il-114.
