TYPE: Twin turboprop transport.
PROGRAMME: Design began February 1992; shown in model form at Moscow Air Show 1993; development received government approval January 1994 and proceeded at low priority until 1997, when completion of MiG-AT design released staff and facilities for more rapid progress; by late 1998, mockup assembled and one-third of construction documentation was complete. On 27 October 1998, ANL Handelsgesellschaft of Austria signed LoI for funding of MiG-110 design and prototype construction; ANL intends to assemble aircraft in Austria from Russian kits. Interest was being maintained in late 2001, involving Austrian purchase of MiG-29 fighters. RSK "MiG" confirmed continuation of negotiations in December 2002.
Main production previously intended by Sokol at Nizhny Novgorod; however, by late 2002 Voronin production plant of RSK "MiG" was claiming responsibility for series production and announced intention to begin fabrication of prototype during 2003. MiG delayed formation of prototype committee from late 2000 to early 2001. Promotion continued throughout 2001, but little progress reported towards construction of prototype; further mockup conference held in June 2002, when targets reset as completion of design documentation by end of 2002; prototype assembly begun late 2003; first flight 2005; and certification in 2007.
Contender in Russian Air Forces competition to replace Antonov An-24/An-26; Myasishcev M-60 (EhMZ), Su-80 and Tu-136 are rival designs.
