The Ilyushin Il-108 is a twin-jet business-aircraft project drafted in 1990 by the Russian manufacturer Ilyushin. A first model was presented in the same year, but apparently no Il-108 ever took to the air. It is similar in appearance to the Canadair Challenger 300.[1]

Design[edit]

The draft listed two models, a 9-seater executive aircraft and a 15-passenger commercial aircraft, both low-winged and possessing the T-tail. The Il-108 is powered by two Lotarev DV-2 turbofans attached to the top of the rear fuselage on either side of the tail, each providing a thrust of 21.6 kN. [2]

Variants[edit]

A second version was planned to be equipped with Lotarev DV-22 turbofan derivatives having a bypass ratio of 5 and a 35 kN thrust.
