The new engine for IL-112V successfully tested. Waiting for the flight sample

22
The new TV7-117CT turboprop engine, developed by the ODK-Klimov company in St. Petersburg for the promising IL-112В transport aircraft and the Il-114-300 passenger aircraft, has successfully passed bench tests and the first flight stage, reports N + 1 portal referring to the company. Now the developers are waiting for permission to flight tests of the power plant on the flight model IL-112В. This will be the first flight of the aircraft and the first flight of the TV7-117CT on the IL-112В.


The new engine for IL-112V successfully tested. Waiting for the flight sample


The TV7-117CT engine is part of the TB7-117 turboprop family. Its development has been carried out since 2014 of the year as part of a larger-scale IL-112В project, ordered by the Russian Ministry of Defense. Compared with the base engine of the TV7-117ST family, the take-off power increased by 350 horsepower. This figure is now three thousand horsepower. In addition, the power plant in an emergency can produce up to 3,6 thousands of horsepower.

Currently, ODK-Klimov is carrying out life tests of the TV7-117CT engine, and is also engaged in flight tests of the power plant. These checks are carried out in the Moscow Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute named after Zhukovsky on the basis of the flying laboratory IL-76LL. The aircraft of the same type is used for flight tests of another promising Russian engine PD-14, created by the United Engine Corporation for the passenger aircraft MC-21. As expected, development work on the TV7-117CT project will be completed in the 2020 year.

The development of the IL-112В transporter is carried out under a contract of the Russian Ministry of Defense with 2014. The new aircraft will have to replace outdated An-26 transporters as part of the VKS of Russia. The military plans to purchase 62 new aircraft before the 2020 year. The transporter will be used for the transportation and landing of light equipment, cargoes and fighters. As expected, the aircraft will be able to reach speeds of up to 550 kilometers per hour and fly thousands of kilometers to 3,4.

IL-112V will be able to take off from the runways no longer than 900 meters. IL-112V mileage when landing will be about 600 meters. The design of the transport was carried out from 1990-s and was suspended in 2011.

    Lord, I’ll put a candle for you when the IL-112 takes off for the first time and it will be the BIGGEST if this happens in 2018. We have no one else to hope for.

      It makes no sense to bargain with the Lord winked The engine until the beginning of the 20s will not be, but
      62 new aircraft until 2020.
      especially .

        It depends on how you ask.

        This is not yet clear. If you are already waiting for the engines on the first board, then why not wait for the aircraft? Can trials go together?

    Well, at least they lied, somehow more competently.

      Perhaps it means that at the end of the ROC, the MO will immediately send a money - therefore, it will acquire. yes And, here, the delivery time ... fellow

    Despite the development of jet engines. the development of supersonic and hypersonic technologies, a turboprop engine remains in demand as in the good old days ...........

      Profitability and resource have not been canceled.

        There are even more economical and more resource piston star-shaped ICEs. However, the speed is not the same with them.

            Well, on the An-2 it’s just a star-shaped piston air cooling. And the modernized An-2 is already turboprop. And a bunch of composite materials in the glider. But nothing is profitable in our capitalist economy. Even pumping oil is unprofitable - recently Leontyev on the radio complained. It is beneficial in Russia to only steal and do nothing.

                I have a day off. And I work at one enterprise for the glory of Rottenberg. Literally. The enterprise used to belong to the people of the USSR, and now belongs to Rottenberg and a couple of families of famous oligarchs. It hasn’t been banned yet at all, although there is an article 282 and many ordinary innocent people actually sit on it - some for a simple repost, some for "inciting hatred" to priests, nationalities and oligarchs.

    It's a shame that during the rampant liberals, the aircraft industry was simply killed. How hard everything is going now

      and even now they’re not reviving - they only create visibility
      ... the thesis is confirmed:
      rampant "liberals" continues, but with some disguise.

    Unfortunately, most often, forced shifts to the right in aviation and shipbuilding occur due to the lack of engine production. Too much left in Ukraine. Slowly "import substitution." A modern engine with 0, it's 8-10 years old.

      Under Stalin, they did not hesitate to copy and buy licenses for the production of the best ICE models of the time, and then make their own good ICE on their basis.
