Tu-334 is a short-haul Russian passenger aircraft developed in 1990-ies to replace the out-of-service Tu-154B, Tu-134 and Yak-42. For some reason, the mass production of the aircraft was not organized. The project as of June 2013 was frozen, but not formally closed.

The aerodynamic layout of the aircraft is a twin-engined turbojet low-wing with the engines located in the rear, with a T-shaped tail assembly and an arrow-shaped wing. The wing consists of supercritical profiles, specially profiled surfaces are mounted on the ends of the wing to reduce the inductive resistance. The aerodynamic performance of the 16,7.

Widely used in modern aircraft design composite alloys and materials.

Wire control system with mechanical emergency backup. The control system provides wheel control pilots of aircraft and signals VSUPT automatic flight control.

The crew cabin is standardized as much as possible from the cabin Tu-204 / 214, and is designed on the principle of "dark cockpit" on the basis of modern ergonomic standards.

The fuselage of the Tu-334 in cross section has the same appearance as the Tu-204, with which this aircraft is unified by 60 percent, but has a shorter length.

Tricycle landing gear with nose strut. The brake electrically-operated system is involved with its autoswitching to the mode of forcing the airplane to stop when the takeoff is interrupted.

The aircraft has a set of navigation and piloting equipment, which provides automatic or manual entry of initial flight data, automatic flight selection, automatic aircraft driving around the airfield along a programmed route, director control of the longitudinal and lateral movement of the aircraft, directorial and automatic approach and automatic landing, warning of reaching or approaching controlled flight parameters to the limits of operational tolerances.

The luggage compartment consists of 2 cargo compartments - front on 10 square meters and rear on 6,2 square meters. It was planned in the future to equip the aircraft door-ladders, produced automatically.

The power plant consists of two TRDD D-436Т1, made on the three-shaft scheme. Power auxiliary installation - TA-12-60.

The passenger plane Tu-334 is really a quality device. It can calmly compete with world airlines, both in terms of technical parameters and comfort in flight. Indeed, not so long ago flying on one of them, was completely satisfied with both comfort and service. Many people say that these devices of our manufacture are very much below foreign analogues, I do not agree with this opinion at all. Better than worshiping the same Boeing you need to pay attention to our aircraft construction, especially as it has an excellent development. Yes, of course, our planes still have minor flaws, but mostly they are excellent aircraft. The biggest disadvantage is the quality of our aircraft, but the fact that when ordering such a machine, the customer will wait for her for months. And in turn, foreign cars are usually delivered very quickly in a few days or weeks.
