THE MODEL OF MC-21-200 AIRCRAFT TESTED IN TRANSONIC WIND CHANNEL
“The high level of aerodynamic efficiency of MC-21-200 aircraft was confirmed,” Mr. Sergey Skomorokhov, the Deputy Chief of TSAGI’s Aircraft and Missiles Aerodynamics Unit, said.
MC-21-200 differs from MC-21-300 in shorter fuselage, lower overall weight, and reduced passenger capacity. The smaller aircraft is optimal option for air routes with low intensity or highly variable passenger traffic.
The MC-21 aircraft family is being created by Irkut Corporation.
