Began testing the new engine for IL-112В

The flight tests of the TV7-117CT turboprop engine, which is being developed to equip the IL-112В military transport and the regional IL-114-300, began in the Moscow Region on the basis of the Flight Research Institute. Gromov, transmits RIA News.

Began testing the new engine for IL-112В

The tests of the power plant in various modes and altitude ranges are carried out as part of the IL-76LL flying laboratory.

The development program of the new TV7-117ST engine is of great importance for UEC and for the whole domestic aviation industry. Our goal is to get a world-class highly efficient turboprop engine, which will become a reliable support for both military and civil aviation,
UDC Director General Alexander Artyukhov told reporters.

It is reported that "TV7-117CT is the basic engine for the promising light military transport aircraft IL-112В, while the civilian engine modification - TV7-117СТ-01 - will become the regular engine of the regional passenger aircraft IL-114-300", which production is planned to resume .

TV7-117CT-01, in particular, will increase the carrying capacity of the IL-114-300 and reduce the take-off time of the aircraft.

According to the developers, "engine power at maximum take-off mode is 3 thousands of horsepower, on increased emergency mode - 3,6 thousands of horsepower." The engines are assembled entirely from Russian parts, assemblies and components.

    Well done, only faster, faster, but not to the detriment of quality. AN-12, 26 and their variants have long flown.

      It’s Il-76 in the photo, the An-12 hasn’t been flying for a long time. Apparently, we’ll have other wings for a long time. find and prepare.

        Seriously? Yes, this is IL-76 - a flying laboratory, and I do not remember that the 12th was decommissioned. And what "alien" wings in the Russian Defense Ministry are you talking about?

        Where does the data come from that An 12 do not fly? Continue to work.

      Yes, everything is fine, the engine has been largely redone from the good old TV-3-117, and it has been flying since the 90s. I would say they are testing the screws rather than the engine itself.
      Good luck testers good .

        By the way, but why not "fan"?

        But no one does not deny this. That's just a LONG, VERY LONG. They pulled, decided, as a result, they decided to run it on the IL76LL and only after that they will release the Il112. But, what was not clear before? That the "new" engine needs to be checked is an indispensable rule of aviation, which is written in blood.

    Once we got to the test, they’ll finish it. and Russia will have a turboprop engine for 3000 horses. Now, for the reincarnation of “An-2,” one and a half would have done it ...
    And they tried to sell Motor Sich through offshore companies. There, the court intervened and blocked the deal ... wassat

      The Ketais did not succeed in buying the block of shares the first time. I think anyway they will outbid when they find a loophole or a bribe for what.

        It is necessary to lure specialists. As soon as the Chinese "Motor Sich" take their hands in a year and a half, there will be nothing left ...
