Tupolev TU-204-120

Tu-204-120 is a medium-range passenger aircraft developed at the Tupolev ATK. Tu-204-120 is a variant of the Tu-204-100 aircraft with the British Rolls-Royce RB211-535E4 engines. The first flight of the aircraft took place on August 14, 1992. The decision to use Western engines and avionics was made at the design stage. An agreement was signed on the supply of English engines; negotiations are ongoing with the American company Pratt & Whitney.

At the plant of JSC Aviastar (Ulyanovsk), mass production of aircraft was commissioned by the order of the Egyptian company Kato. This company has been granted exclusive rights to sell Tu-204-120 aircraft. The total number of aircraft maybe 150-200. To implement this project, a joint venture “Cirocco” was created. The aircraft is equipped with a Russian-made EFIS digital avionics system, as well as similar systems jointly developed with Western companies. The inertial navigation system using laser gyroscopes is used, by the American companies Lytton and Honeywell, and the domestic I-42-1 C system. It is possible to install aircraft collision avoidance systems in flight TCAS and satellite communications.
