In the same way as other western flying machine of inexactly comparable size and design, the Il-14 was produced as a trade for the then crucial Douglas DC-3 and Russian Li-2.
Similarly as with such a variety of different nations around the globe the Soviet Union's prompt post bellum air transport framework was intensely dependant on war surplus DC-3/C-47s and in addition the Lisunov Li-2 (Soviet permit constructed advancement of the DC-3). In the late 1940s/early 1950s Aeroflot created a prerequisite for a current substitution of the Li-2 and the DC-3. Ilyushin reacted with a low wing tricycle undercarriage outline controlled by two Shvetsov radials with greatest seating for 27. This flying machine was assigned the Il-12.
The Il-14 is an enhanced improvement of the fundamental Il-12 outline. The significant change Ilyushin presented was another wing outline offering a more proficient aerofoil area, in addition to all the more compelling Shvetsov motors and a general clean up of the airframe.
Given the NATO reporting name "Carton", the Il-14 is accepted to have entered administration in 1954 or 1955. Beginning administration models were assigned Il-14p (Passazhirskii or traveler) and they were reconfigured to seat 18. Pretty nearly two years after entrance into administration most Il-14ps were arranged to seat 24 travelers in a higher thickness design. By 1956 a somewhat extended improvement, the Il-14m (Modifitsirovanny/adjusted), had showed up. At first the Il-14m was designed to seat 24, yet this was later changed to 36. Not very many adjustments were made to the Il-14 amid its creation run, albeit numerous vessel Il-14ts (Transportny/transport) were assembled, while numerous aerial shuttle Il-14s were later changed over to tankers.
While most Il-14s were implicit Russia, at Khodinka and Tashkent, Il-14s were additionally manufactured under permit in the previous Eastern Germany by VEB Flugzeugwerke and the previous Czechoslovakia by Avia, 80 VEB Il-14ps and 203 Avia 14s were constructed.
Today few Il-14s stay in administration, most are utilized for general cargo and sanction work.
