The progressed engineering Tu-334 100 seat plane was produced as a swap for the maturing Tu-134.
Improvement of a substitution for the Tu-134 started in the late 1980s, however it was not until August 1995 at the Moscow Airshow that the first model was shown openly. The airplane made its first flight on December 8, 1999.
The Tu-334 was focused around the much bigger Tu-204 twinjet with Tupolev utilizing as numerous Tu-204 gimmicks in the new outline as pragmatic to decrease advancement time and expenses. Illustrations of this incorporate an indistinguishable flightdeck and an abbreviated Tu-204 fuselage. Furthermore the Tu-334's wing is focused around the Tu-204's, in spite of the fact that the recent's is an altogether bigger unit.
Separated from shared characteristic with the Tu-204, other eminent Tu-334 configuration peculiarities were the back fuselage mounted Progress D-436 turbofans, T-tail and fly-by-wire flight controls.
It was arranged that the Tu-334 would be created in various adaptations. The principal was the essential Tu-334-100, while the Tu-334-120 was wanted to be fueled by the BMW Rolls-Royce Br710-48. The Tu-354 (long ago Tu-334-200) would have been an extended, 35m (115ft) long 110 to 126 seater (in a solitary class). Separated from the fuselage stretch, arranged progressions included all the more influential D436t2 or Br715-55 turbofans, an expanded compass wing and four wheel fundamental undercarriage units.
The Tu-334-100d would have been a more extended extent Tu-334-100 emphasizing the 100's standard length fuselage yet with all the more effective motors, expanded fuel limit, a higher max takeoff weight and the expanded compass wings of the Tu-334-200. Tupolev additionally examined the Tu-334c, which would have been a tanker.
Advancement of the Tu-334 stayed abate because of extended plan issues and there were various deferrals. Inevitably, in 2009, after the justification of the Russian avionics industry, the TU-334 system was scratched off for the Antonov A 148 and the Sukhoi Superjet 100.
