Abstract

Due to the problems in the country (Islamic Republic of Iran) for purchasing aircraft and aircraft old fleet, a solution should be proposedfor this problem. One way to address this need is designing and manufacturing the aircraft in the country.According to the previous investigations carried out, 180-seater passenger planes with a range about 5,000 Km are part of the requirements of the country. In this paper, the costs of design, construction and operation of this type of aircraft has been studied. Also, the inventory costs in the United States of America have been investigated and compared with the costs in the Islamic Republic of Iran. There are three main objectives in this research: the first is to estimate the total expenditures in terms of the different phases of the design, construction and operation; the second concerns reducing design costs to much less than the costs of construction and mining; and finally, the third involves an analogy of the costs of design and production in Iran versus the U.S.
