In 1960, Soviet airline Aeroflot announced that it needs a cheap and simple transport to replace Li-2 (licensed DC-3), Il-2 and Il-14 aircraft. Today the AN-24 serves most domestic routes and even some regional and international flights in the CIS. After the collapse of the Soviet Union some have been sold to foreign countries. The An-26 like the An-24RV has an auxiliary turbojet in the right engine nacelle, used for high-and-hot operations. The An-26 has a rear loading ramp. It is in service since 1969.

Tu154

TU-154

Tatarstan Airlines

Designed for medium-distance routes, the Samara made TU 154 was particularly designed to operate from rough airports. To spread the load on poor surfaces each main landing gear has a six-wheel bogie. In 1977 Tupolev 154 production began with a french automatic flight control and navigation system able to land in bad visibility. Most of the 1.000 Tu-154 that have been built are still active. Aviakor built one Tupolev Tu-154M airliner for each of Tobol Avia, Dagestan Airlines and Slovakia Airlines in 1997, 4 more in 2000 and 2 more in 2001. TU-154 planes are prohibited from flying at temperatures higher than 39 decrees Celsius. The Tu-154M is more fuel-economic than the older versions. Those are replaced with the Tu-154M due to this and due to the fact that the Tu-154M is the only russian aircraft that is allowed to fly to Europe after April 01, 2002. Although the ban was known since 7 years, only a few airlines like Aeroflot or Transaero invested int o newer equipment. Aviakor no longer produces the Tu-154M. There are 8 unfinished aircrafts that may be sold for 8 mln USD. Aviakor is now ready to re-equipt Tu-154B and Tu-154M into all-cargo aircrafts. Pulkovo bought use Tu-154M from Chima for 3,5 mln USD each. New Tu-204 cost around 20 mln USD.

The Yak-42M was designed to takeoff on any two engines and continue level flight on one. The prototypes had twin-wheel main landing gears but these were changed to four-wheel bogies in the production version to improve behaviour on soft surfaces. Updates were also being introduced to the avionics to improve navigation and the ability to land in bad weather. 170 have been sold since 1980.

The Fokker 50 first flew in 1987 and boasted the latest generation of Pratt & Whitney Canada engines, offering airlines a greater flight range with its efficient fuel economy. Although the aircraft looked archaic with its double propellers to air passengers often more used to flying on jet planes, the Fokker 50 is regarded as the being among the latest generation of turboprops using state-of-the-art instrumentation in the cockpit. Other improvements included limited use of composites in its structure, small "Foklet" winglets, and more, squared windows in the main cabin. In all, 205 Fokker 50s were built, but Fokker collapsed due to financial problems in 1996 and the last Fokker 50 was delivered to Ethiopian Airlines a year later.
