Aircraft assembly will start after airlines make purchase commitments for at least 50 planes, since finishing the project and certification require some 20 to 30 million $US. International market price tag is expected on level 0.8 to 1.0 million $US, at some 50% of foreign analogs. It is expected that to take 5-7 years of the Il-100 production and sales to pay back the costs.
Ilyushin KB promises to have the first Il-100 flying two years after those commitments are received. Designers make accent of simple technology and easy service of the plane. For example, Il-100 will not require a hangar for routine checks and service.
Operating on commuter lines, Il-100 will be able to 'work full time', i.e. 8 hours per day and finally replace the veteran An-2. Installation of two turboprop engines allows to cut fuel consumption by factor 1,5. NK-123 engine require cheaper fuel than ASh-62 of the An-2. Total service cost expected to be 40% less than (already low) one of the aging veteran biplane, some 1,500 of still in service.
Installation of imported 450-500hp Allison or Pratt & Whitney is considered as a secondary option.
