  • ProductionAt late 1998 50 Il-96M/-96T firm orders held, including from Aeroflot (17 Il-96Ms and 3 Il-96Ts), Transaero (six Il-96Ms) and Partnairs of the Netherlands.

The Ilyushin Il-96m long go carrier and Il-96t tanker are modernized and extended advancements of the Il-96-300 outfitted with western motors and aeronautics.

Contrasted and the Il-96-300 the Il-96m and -96t peculiarity a group of upgrades and consolidate much western engineering. The most clear change is the fuselage stretch taking max single class traveler settlement once again to in excess of 350 (as on the Il-86). The more drawn out fuselage likewise implies that the Il-96m's vertical tail might be littler. However maybe most imperative of the progressions are the Pratt & Whitney Pw2337 turbofans giving more noteworthy mileage and dependability. The Il-96m likewise emphasizes Rockwell Collins flight including a present day two team six screen EFIS flightdeck.

The principal Il-96m to fly was the Il-96mo model, a change of an Il-96-300, its first flight happening on April 6 1993. The primary new form creation Il-96m was an Il-96t tanker which was taken off on April 26 1997, while the first new form Il-96m was because of fly amid 1998.

Creation Il-96ms/ -96ts will be assembled at the Ilyushin Aircraft Production Association plant in Voronezh and confirmation, both western and Russian, is arranged, yet had not been attained by late 1998.

Conceivable improvements of the Il-96m under study incorporate the Il-96mk, which would be controlled with ducted motors in the 175 to 195kn (38,000 to 43,000lb) push class, and the twin motor Il-98, which would be fueled by western turbofans, for example, the Ge90, Trent 800 or P&w Pw4000 arrangement.
