123 Aircraft Repair Plant
• 123 Aircraft Repair Plant
This year one of the new directions of development of the KLA was to support the life cycle of the aircraft; Today we will visit the 123 Aircraft Repair Plant (123 ARZ) - the largest and most successful in the city of Staraya Russa.
Today on the airfield and on the factory floor is worth more than 20 machines. Most of them were issued in 1985-1990.
IL-76 lifetime today - forty years. The specialists of the plant task - to disassemble the aircraft, go through the engine, perform the necessary repairs to the aircraft could operate reliably for a long time.
has just flown to the airport Ilam plant will spend here about five months.
During this time, with the aircraft dismantling units and motors perform their repairs, where necessary, replace the stuffing, repaint, after which the aircraft service life to the next repair will be installed, which will be 16 years.
Most of the machines are designed for the Russian Air Force (now the Air Force is more than 100 transport IL-76).
Some aircraft, specially modified for the needs of foreign customers, will fly to China, India or Algeria.
It is expected that revenues 123 ARZ 2015 will amount to 5 billion rubles. According to managing director of the Andrei Sakharov plant by August of this year the plant has fulfilled 80% of the state order in 2015.
Only staff increased by 700 employees during the last three years - up to 2500 people.
For several years employees of the company could increase revenue five times greater (compared with 2000) due to increasing volumes of manufactured products in the framework of the state defense order and export development programs.
In 1973, the Tashkent Aircraft Production Association. Chkalov started production of the transport and amphibious vehicles of IL-76.
In total over the years produced about 950 aircraft. More than two hundred of them is still in the service of the Russian armed forces, part of a number of private airlines in the Navy, and the rest - from foreign customers.
Production of IL-76 in Tashkent completely discontinued last year, when two incomplete side was sent back for revision in Russia. But at the Russian front aviaremontnikov work began to expand significantly.
In order to avoid confusion with the supply of components - fasteners, brackets, honeycombs - Staraya Russa gradually unfolds its own production of individual parts and assemblies. The list of names of such parts for the aircraft already has a few dozen pages.
The new equipment is necessary for other types of works: repair of engines, propellers and other items. Experience has shown that its own production allows to satisfy need of repair.
This year, the plant completed the first modernization: Painter built housing, on the basis of the machining workshop created a section of high-tech equipment; also created a vertical machining center with a unique opportunity to coordinate the processing of 5 for the manufacture of parts with complex spatial forms.
In most of the areas of reconstruction work shops or even go either already coming to the end.

The Painting workshop begins painting details.
The plant is gradually implementing the program of import substitution. About 60% of the most sought-after parts have made their own. Bolts, nuts, gaskets - all previously had to be purchased from suppliers. Now this problem is solved. For example, more than four thousand. Titles gaskets which are used for repair of D-30KP, fully produce the enterprise using laser systems.
Available rubber parts during overhaul changed completely. However, before you put components into production, you must go through a number of coordination with the developers and manufacturers - without written permission of the items in the series did not go.
The plant mastered and insulating glass manufacturing process an oriented organic glass, which are used in the IL-76. Oriented glass - it is heated up at a certain temperature and stretched along different axes to a predetermined thickness special high-strength glass, and work with it requires professional skills.
The IL-76 costs about 88 windows, and each of them needs its own mold. For internal and external glass are different. Moreover, the company makes its own not only the mold, but also glass. Of the 88 windows at the moment already mastered 32.
At the beginning of 2015 on the development of industrial and technological base and re-equipment were sent to more than 2 1 bln. These funds were used for the construction of about 25 thousand. M2 of new production space, reconstruction of the airfield, fuel depot, as well as three production buildings workshop for repair of IL-76 aircraft, and L-410 with the device in each case self-leveling floors, upgrading of sliding gates and utilities .
In Russia today, flying dozens of small transport aircraft L-410 of Czech manufacture, which, of course, easier to repair the house.

Another important activity was the work of 123 ARZ engine repairs.
Several years ago, motor direction prompted the leadership to develop the idea is not entirely a profile for the plant area of energy. So, in Staraya Russa Obsolete AI-20 engines converted for thermal power plants. For several years, electricity and heat, the company does not buy on the wholesale energy market, and produces its own, providing a part of the surrounding neighborhoods.
On the territory of the company implemented a number of unusual ideas in the field of industrial design, who come to see the residents as a native of Novgorod, as well as neighboring regions.
Also in the past, more and more tourists are trying to combine a tour of the places Dostoevsky, who worked in the packaging of Rousse on the novel "The Possessed", "Teenager" and "The Brothers Karamazov" with a visit to the aircraft repair plant.
Look at how the aircraft production, attracts not only representatives of various industrial enterprises, tourists and students of the Novgorod region, but also residents of St. Petersburg, Moscow and other cities.
During the year, through the museum of the factory it runs more than a thousand tourists.
In the past three years the factory area changed: there was a green alley, were installed steel models of aircraft performing aerobatics.
According to the rules of fire safety in the plant is a lot of open water. On the biggest workers installed fountains.
To date, Russia and Western countries contain hundreds of civilian, military and transport aircraft of domestic production, operation period of from twenty to fifty years. It is natural that each aircraft requires periodic repair service.
About a year ago in the KLA included nine aircraft repair companies involved in repair of aircraft for the Ministry of Defense and other agencies.
Today, the portfolio of orders 123 ARZ laid out until 2025. In addition to the transport Il-76 is planned to serve new machines, such as the modernized Il-76-90-MDA, the release of which the Ulyanovsk Aviastar-SP plant began last year.
