UZGA creates engine for aircraft L-410

Ural Civil Plant aviation (UZGA) in the near future will begin bench testing of a new turboprop engine VK-800C, the resource reports

UZGA creates engine for aircraft L-410

This engine is designed for installation on a Czech aircraft L-410, the assembly of which is localized at the Ekaterinburg enterprise.

According to the program manager Mikhail Peresadin, the flight tests of the engine are scheduled to begin by the summer of 2019. After obtaining a certificate of type, approximately in 2020 year, the motor will be put into mass production. Some work on components to speed up the process was transferred to other Russian companies.

The resource reminds that VK-800С is being developed on behalf of the Ministry of Industry and Trade as part of the import substitution program - the designers are instructed to use only domestic components in the engine. The Office has already placed an order for the X-NUMX aircraft L-2UVP-E410 with Russian-made engines.

The company noted that first of all the engine created will be installed on the L-410, since there are already orders for the aircraft itself. In the future, other aircraft will also be equipped with VK-800C engines (which vehicles we are talking about are not explained).

According to the information, VK-800С is a turboprop modification of the helicopter turboshaft engine VK-800В developed by ODK-Klimov. Currently, L-410UVP-E20 airplanes are operated in Russia with GE Aviation Czech M601 and H80 engines.

    Designers are instructed to use only domestic components in the engine. The agency has already placed an order for 2 L-410UVP-E20 aircraft with engines of Russian production.

    Good news! For when they talk about our plane, but it turns out that it has a foreign engine, it causes a skeptical grin. Because the engine occupies a significant part of the total price of the aircraft and the inter-flight service is primarily associated with it

      I agree! hi Even a Czech aircraft should be operated in Russia, but it’s very cool with 100% Russian engines !!! good

    It was decided, first of all, to launch mass production of the VK-800S modification

    The promising VK-800 engine is the only power plant project developed by UEC-Klimov from scratch over the past 20 years. The development of the VK-800 turboshaft engine (TWD) in the modification for helicopters began in the early 2000s. 800th generation VK-5V TVD in the power class of 500-800 hp Designed for light helicopters. In the first place, the engine was planned to be installed on light domestic multi-purpose helicopters Ansat and Ka-226, which are now operated with Canadian, English and French theater of operations. Certification of the VK-800V TVD was planned for 2016. It was planned that the VK-800 engine in the turboprop version - VK-800C - will be installed on manned aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles at the end of this decade. VK-800S is intended for multi-purpose aircraft with a carrying capacity of 1 - 1,5 tons.

    However, over the past two years there has been a change in priorities. It was decided that they will be the first to be certified and will begin to mass-produce the VK-800S engine. At present, the first three prototypes of the VK-800S TVD are being assembled at UEC-Klimov. At the end of May they should be made. It is planned that this summer new engines will be tested at the stands, and at the end of 2018 it is planned to begin flight tests of the promising VK-800C engine. The customer is the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia.

    In addition to the ODK-Klimov company, the VK-800S project also includes Aviation Gearboxes and Transmissions - Perm Motors, Metalist - Samara, Omsk Engine Building Design Bureau, UNPP Molniya, etc. Get a type certificate for VK- 800C is scheduled for 2020.

    First of all, VK-800S engines are going to be installed on local L-410 airplanes, which are built under license at the Ural Civil Aviation Plant (UZGA).

      - and at the same time you can’t do this?

    So it’s the same for the re-incarnation of the An-2 engine! Which TVS-2. Great news!

      VK-800 is rather weak for TVS-2DTS. The Honeywell TPE331-12UAN engine with a capacity of 1100 hp is now being installed on it.

    Great news.good
    500-800 hp engines very lacking since the days of the USSR. Development and production of 3-ton class helicopters (two engines), light aircraft and ultra-light helicopters (one engine), UAVs always rested on the lack of suitable engines. I would like to hope that with the VK-800 this problem will resolve.

    The aircraft was put into operation on the territory of the USSR in favor of Czechoslovakia after the invasion of the ATS troops, as the deepest apology and fawning ... Be-30/32, as well as An-28 were quietly buried. The same thing happened with the Yak-32 for the sake of L-29/39 ... An-2 was presented to Poland, which affected very sadly. In 1976 I spoke with the Iranian commander of the BTA regiment. He very much complained that the USSR did not produce An-2. And Poland declared a boycott to Iran. And Iran had to take An-26 from us, which in the conditions of mountains is not at all like An-2, which is able to slowly rattle along the gorges with a dozen paratroopers ... In general, the tendency to leave the Russians at the end of the line remains.
    "And the people kept murmuring and murmuring,
    And people of justice want:
    - We were the first in line
    And those who are behind us already eat.

    They explained to them not to swear:
    - We ask you, leave, dear!
    Those who eat are foreigners
    And you, I beg your pardon, who are you? "(Vysotsky)

    Once LNPO them. V. Ya. Klimov designed and put into practice the GTD-350 - a small reliable motor for the MI-2 helicopter. The kindly KPSS decided to present the MI-2 helicopter to Poland. And we won't let him out. And that's all. The designers' dreams of small-medium gas turbine engines have ended. However, "Klimov" also presented a good device - GTD-1000 for T-80. Gorbachev arrived in Leningrad and, by the party's will, closed the production of the T-80Z at the Kirov plant. Again, no luck. By the way. When the GTD-1000 for the T-80 was already born, a cool engine for mining dump trucks was developed and tested at the stand. Why mining dump trucks are thrilled with a gas turbine engine? And even better than sexy :) pistons? Yes, because from giant quarries, a dump truck drives along a serpentine in the nominal thrust mode and it will not be necessary to click gears to select the optimal torque ... Here is a GTE and even with an adjustable nozzle apparatus. And again, the Communist Party is not needed. So there is no such engine on dump trucks. Another trick is that any device with a combined power plant "kerosene-electricity" will necessarily rest against a gas turbine engine. By efficiency. He started the gas turbine engine and he figures the generators in the best efficiency and also turns them with screws or blows in the ass ... And then, my friend, it should be noted. Required. The next pattern. The reverse. The LESS the size of the GTE / TVD / RD, etc., the harder it is to make it. And vice versa. And the complexity is not only and not so much in analogy with clockwork, but also in thermodynamics-gas dynamics, processes of mixture-formation-spray, etc. It is more difficult to make cooling in small blades, it is difficult to make both the ROLLING bearings themselves, and the supply of oil to them for cooling, the collection of oil foam and its pumping out, and even a MASS of what. We are now talking NOT about a SINGLE RD or GTE for UAVs or models, but about serious engines with high efficiency with the highest reliability and with a large service life. This is where our government cannot be ignored. Why? It's very simple. The country needs engines. Russians. Small-medium by power class. Then we will put together the box around the engine. Either with wings, or with screws, or with wheels. All this will effectively crawl-ride-fly ONLY with GOOD engines. This must be understood. But this requires a brain. And we need a financial program to inject money NOT into New / Old Moscow, but into strategic sectors. One of which is engine building. But the brain is just not enough ...
