The first installation of PD-14 engines on the MS-21-310 aircraft took place in Irkutsk

The newest Russian aviation PD-14 engines were first installed on the MC-21-310 prototype aircraft. The successful completion of the technological unit was announced by the press service of the state corporation "Rostec".


According to the report, the attachment of PD-14 engines was carried out at the Irkutsk Aviation Plant, a branch of the Irkut corporation. During the installation, the correctness of the design solutions incorporated into the engines was confirmed.

The first - mock-up - attachment of new engines to the aircraft was successful: PD-14 without any remarks "stood" on the pylons of MS-21. In addition, bonnet flaps and reversing devices were installed.

- said the representative of the customer support department of the company "UEC-Perm Motors" Ivan Mikhailov.

As explained, according to the results of the first hitch of engines, adjustments are made to the structural elements of the engine and airframe. At the same time, systems are being installed on the MC-21-310 aircraft in the final assembly shop. After the completion of all work, the PD-14 propulsion systems will be installed on a prototype aircraft for ground and flight tests.

PD-14 is the first completely Russian turbofan engine for civil aviation since the 1980s, developed taking into account international norms and requirements. The engine was created using the latest technologies and materials to ensure modern performance and a high level of environmental friendliness. The new by-pass twin-shaft engine can develop up to 14 tons of thrust in take-off mode.

MS-21-300 is a new generation short- and medium-haul passenger aircraft with a capacity of 150 to 211 passengers. Certification of the aircraft should be completed this year, and mass production is scheduled for 2021.

        If you have learned to withstand the draconian European norms, which the Europeans themselves are afraid of like plague, then it will be much easier further - I can’t wait for the PD-35 to enter the series!
        But the very one that can be produced within the same PDshek line after the 35 model will be a real bomb in engine building and will open the way for something more shaggy than Mriya (some kind of flying hangar!) lol .

      I support ... with our ability to spend only 5 years from the beginning of flight tests to obtaining the Type Certificate of the Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) ... this is very good.
      Start of flight tests ... August 2015.

      And this is the end of the Certification Tests:

        I beg your pardon, but the conclusion given in the article hurts the ear. How can installation on an airplane confirm anything? Could the fasteners not match or the fittings with the connectors did not fit? Alas and oh, in our modern realities, even brilliantly passed tests and certifications do not guarantee success for a project. For the aircraft industry and not only, as a rule, are headed by "dedicated people" with a non-core education, and not professionals. hi

      There is. The fully assembled wing made of Russian carbon fiber is undergoing strength tests. Apparently, it has already passed, the news is not very "fresh". On flight copies, the wings were assembled much earlier.

          And what have the sanctions and composite wings to do with it? We are in no way dependent on the West, in the context of composite materials. Moreover, we supply carbon fiber (and titanium) to Boeing, incl. and in the form of finished products. These technologies were normally developed in our country back in the late 70s. Maybe not on such a scale. Those. large items were not baked. I say this, as a person engaged in subject matters, in the Yakovlev Design Bureau (78-82gg).

            Attaching all sorts of managers, you do not even understand how many work and problems in production with any changes. And this is an event, and you can boast of it. Not blowing a month at every corner, but informing.
            A lot of people are solving a lot of issues. ALL questions are not the level of the nut in the garage to screw. There is responsibility and quality behind this. And managers can only give the command to the press secretary.

              Instead of wondering why many people work and solve problems. And they trumpet about it only where there is a bunch of everyone who sticks who do not do anything but only receive huge bonuses? They need to justify their comfortable existence, so they inflate an elephant out of a fly, turning a common thing into some kind of super-achievement. I’m not saying that it’s just a nut to screw on, but it’s just the same for something heroic. An ordinary job as it should be.

I don’t believe that someone there received an award for fulfilling the schedule for installing a new engine on an aircraft. Hehe. Even bosses and managers. At the general meeting they will praise, they will say thank you - the maximum.

              And here's one more thing. Engineers will never set realistic deadlines. They will always be long. We need a manager who is smart enough to set other deadlines. wink Closer to reality. wink And make sure that they are fulfilled. The qualifications of all are judged by the total.

After all, 90-100 years ago, the country was built - they rejoiced in every little thing. And we live - and there are few reasons for joy. And today there are as many as two - in Irkutsk the engines approached the plane and stood up, in Kerch MRK was launched. Honestly, I want to rip off my cap and shout "hurray" like a kid.

Another question is that, in general, an ordinary operation of testing the installation and assembly of an experimental aircraft is replicated with such fanfare in the media. When we start jogging with PD-14, then the news will be more interesting. I've already seen enough of these engines "on the ground", I want to see them in the air :-)

        A whole line is being developed on the basis of PD-14. I am sure it was not unsuccessful. Most likely, the resource will be less than that of analogues SNECMA, RR and GE, the price will also be lower, but the parameters will not be worse. Especially reliability. But even if in general they are a little worse, it is still an achievement.

        Maybe you're right. But I would like more details. With which "Western" ones to compare? By what parameters "does not pull".
        The chief metallurgist of "Perm Motors" highly appreciated him (by the way, a charming woman), and the rest of the workers praised him very much. Successful design. Lightweight, powerful, economical, digitally controlled ... Quite up to par. Then I looked at his parameters, and the plate was for comparison ... there was an American and an Englishman. But I looked "out of hand" ... I remember that our fuel economy was 8% better, 10% lower in weight, and the maximum power was higher ...
        So what about the technical level?

          It's all PR and marketing. Of course, the developer will praise him.
          I don’t believe it is better than the PW1000G and LEAP-X. Nobody has ever given any confirmation, except as "BETTER ANALOGUES BY 15%", but knowing the level of technical capabilities .. it would be very naive to argue that it will be better. By the resource - even more so. If the industry was forced to cooperate with Snekma for the hot part of SaM146, and this is just a scaled old CFM56 .. you understand. You can't get out of rags to riches just like that.

            Faith is not a technical yardstick.
            Scaling the Frenchman is, of course, interesting. Only there it was a little different. The French engine on a superjet since the days of "passionate love" with "partners", the time of faith in "international cooperation" and in the laws ... WTO. that's ... for the sake of international cooperation. The hot part of the engine was not produced in Perm, because the French flatly refused to transfer it. Therefore, a copy is not entirely true. We looked and made our own. Not worse. So PD-8 is doing - NEW! And not a copy of the "guardian" ... why? And what about the technical level and other things - are fighter engines made on belt-driven machines?

      Probably under the New Year's tree it will be, maybe even earlier, it is difficult to predict such things, a damn pandemic, how long everyone spent in quarantine. I myself quarantined (did not get sick) for 2 weeks because of this in June. Although all measures are followed - masks, disinfection, but at home you will not hide from your wife / husband. Our colleague got infected from her husband, and we were put in prison for 2 weeks about this.

    mock-up hitch before test flights, not to mention the operation of the aircraft,

    it's good not the other way around

    And who needs it? PD-14 is not a competitor to any of the Western engines in terms of technical level, alas.

    And these are unfounded emotions?

    Everything is cool, but built like a galleon in the 16th century. When will they fly off the assembly line like cakes?

    This makes me happy. It's time to start production, the civil aviation of its planes is tired of waiting !!!

    The first installation of PD-14 engines on the MS-21-310 aircraft took place in Irkutsk

    I would not count on the success of the MS-21.
    But you MUST do it.
    Because if it is not done, then civil aircraft construction in Russia will definitely not be.
    And with the MS-21 it may still be.
    In this regard, the clearly unsuccessful SSJ100 is also useful. Yes, the first pancake came out lumpy. But he was needed, this first pancake.

      It is enough that domestic airlines will be filled with supplies of MC-21, having unscrewed the legs of the airlines if necessary. And I hope it will become the base platform for a basic patrol aircraft, a RER and EW aircraft, a tactical AWACS, possibly a tanker for MFI and IS.

    A whole line is being developed on the basis of PD-14. I am sure it was not unsuccessful. Most likely, the resource will be less than that of analogues SNECMA, RR and GE, the price will also be lower, but the parameters will not be worse. Especially reliability. But even if in general they are a little worse, it is still an achievement.


    If no parameter is worse then the motors will be identical, which cannot be. The engine has a set of compromise and mutually exclusive characteristics.
    The higher the compression ratio, the higher the fuel economy, but the greater the mass, the price of the engine and the more difficult it is to repair. It is logical that something should be better, something worse. Even what is optimal for operation depends on the price of fuel, which jumps up and down and on the average flight distance. Fuel economy is becoming increasingly important over long distances. For short engine weights.

    A lot of money is being cut on the PD series engines, and the world's best engine in its class (18 tons) NK-93 is not needed by anyone.
