Given rise to fly and float. Why to China huge amphibian?


The biggest seaplane of AG600 in the world which in China is called "A water dragon" has successfully passed tests on water AG600 Seaplane. Photo: Reuters China has tested the biggest amphibian in the world. The seaplane of AG600 has successfully made the first take off and landing from a water surface, reports the Xinhua agency. Scope of his wings — nearly 40 meters, loading capacity — 53 tons. The vessel is intended first of all for needs of civil aviation and is designed especially for fight against wildfires and holding rescue operations. The plane is capable to take away in only 20 seconds aboard more than 12 tons of water. In the long term AG600 — or as it is called in China, "The water dragon" — is planned to use also for passenger and freight transportation. Developers are sure that the seaplane will be demanded not only in China, but also in Southeast Asia. In one Indonesia nearly 18 thousand islands, and the seaplane in the long term could improve their availability. The editor-in-chief of the Avia.ru portal Roman Gusarov doubts that the Chinese amphibian will attract interest on рынке:Роман Gusarov the editor-in-chief of the Avia.ru portal "I am a skeptic concerning big seaplanes. As has shown life, planes the size as Be-200 and more, have many restrictions whenever possible of their use. In view of the fact that aircrafts very big, for their take off and landing are required very big smooth surface of the water which in the world as it has appeared, there isn't a lot of. Low interest besides to the Be-200 plane around the world is explained by it. I think that similar fate can be also at the new Chinese project. After all too big plane is too big requirements to his "airfields", first of all to gidrodroma. The range of such planes is rather limited therefore there has to be a network of gidrodrom in one region that it is very difficult to reach. The efficiency of use of their buoyancy is very low". According to media, producers of the Russian Be-200 amphibian which carries out the same tasks since 1998 helped to certify the device. About 400 million dollars have been invested in development of a seaplane. China plans to begin commercial delivery of AG600 by 2022. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
