Alpine Colt

RUSSIA’S MINISTRY of Industry and Trade will pay Diamond Aircraft up to 7 billion rubles ($185 million) to help fund the development of a new low-cost, multi-purpose 9-19 seat aircraft to replace the ubiquitous Antonov An-2 Colt. The Austrian manufacturer officially launched the project at last year’s Paris Air Show in partnership with the Russian Technologies state corporation, Rostec. Two concept designs, dubbed LMS-9 and LMS-19, were revealed at MAKS 2013.

The aircraft, which will be powered by diesel engines and made largely from composite materials, share common wing, nose and tail sections. The higher-capacity example features a longer fuselage. They are also designed specifically for use in Russia’s harsh environment, including low-pressure pneumatics to enable operation from unprepared strips. Provision will also be made for ski landing gear and floats. Certification of the new aircraft family is planned for 2017.

About Airliner World

In the November issue of Airliner World, we profile Australia’s leading domestic airline and flag carrier subsidiary QantasLink. We also report on Latvian carrier airBaltic’s recent turnaround, welcome the arrival of Qatar Airways’ first Airbus A380 and examine whether global airline alliances are here to stay, or are they being put under pressure by new models of inter-carrier co-operation This issue celebrates some major landmarks; we join US Airways for the final flights of its iconic Boeing 737 Classics and we fly on the last Cyprus Airways service from London/Heathrow to Larnaca. Maintaining our historical theme, we have part 1 of the United/Continental Airlines story, and we fly Pam Am International Flight Academy’s full-motion Boeing 707 simulator, the last device of its kind in existence. The latest issue incorporates our comprehensive coverage of worldwide news, including Garuda Indonesia’s new services from London to Jakarta, the Boeing 737 MAX 200 launch and the official opening of Jet2.com’s multi-million pound training facility, plus all of our regular sections covering the latest commercial aircraft acquisitions, up-to-date accident reports and developments from the world of aviation training.
