Aircraft engine building in Russia: aircraft engines

The engines of aircraft-missile carriers are truly technologically complex objects that embody the talent of inventors, design engineers, and the precision of workers' actions. Indeed, in such a technique, any nuance matters.


It should be stated that Russia remains one of the leading powers in terms of creating engines for aircraft, including turbojet power plants.

Modern aircraft engines are significantly different from those that were created a couple of decades ago. Physics, or rather materials science, plays its part here. After all, experts in this field are constantly working to create materials with high strength and relatively low specific gravity.

New materials are actively used when creating aviation engines. In particular, they are used in the process of creating turbine blades for aircraft power plants.

The program "Military Acceptance", aired on the "Zvezda" channel, tells about how the aviation engine-building industry in Russia works - on the example of creating turbojet engines for aircraft.

    I left a comment on YUTYUBE that the developments were made in USSR - so the fan of the Internet of the low-pressure compressor threw so much manure that I think that's enough for a couple of hectares in the spring ...)))))))))))

    The turbojet engine is of course excellent! But why can't we create a new engine for the corn plant? TVS-2 with the American engine so far!

      TVS-2 is still powered by the American engine!

      TVS-2, according to aviation regulations, has no right to exist with any engine. With only two smile ... Relatively soon there will be VK-650V:
      "The timing of the project really looks very tight by the standards of other domestic programs. So the start of work refers to the end of the third quarter of 2019, when the preliminary design was completed. By the end of 2019, the design documentation for the demonstrator engine was released. Further, A. Solovyova said," we will conduct a mock-up commission from October to November, in December we assemble the first demonstrator engine and start testing it. ”In mid-2022, it is planned to receive an opinion for the first flight, and by the end of the year it is planned to complete both ground testing and flight tests of the novelty. 2023 is the milestone for obtaining a type certificate and, at the same time, the period after which active work will begin to increase resource indicators.

      But this is the helicopter version. With the letter "C" will be later. The replacement An-2 will fly with it.

          Not so long ago, in the future tense, they talked about PD-14, TV7-117V and ST, VK-2500. In aviation, nothing is done quickly. It's time to get used to it.

            TV7-117, VK2500 (TV3-117) - these are all developments of the times of the USSR. PD14 (PS12) have been doing for 20 years.
            It's time to get used to it.

            We are already used to promises and do not notice them. If MC21 with its engine will carry us en masse - then we will appreciate it.

              And yet, until relatively recently, they were spoken of in the future tense. TV7-117 did not have a resource, TV3-117 was produced in Ukraine, and the sluggish development of the PS-12 received priority and money, too, not twenty years ago. The fact that the engines are already on the aircraft under construction speaks volumes. Development and certification of new motors in the order of the "burning" queue. Part of the training "Ansants" thanks to "partners" is already standing. Everyone will be up soon. Therefore, VK-650V is the first. And the An-2, as it flew, will continue to fly. There is no such urgency.

        An-2 is needed primarily for domestic consumption, but it was possible to put the old one, in the film they showed the old piston on the UAV. And the solution is simple, we have no motor factories ... Therefore, they are trying to stick an American one. By the way, the UAV in the film was exactly the old, probably from warehouses, an engine with an extension of service life.

          lol The film featured engines from the Itlan Engineering Center. They started to be produced recently. Therefore, by definition, they cannot be old, from warehouses, and even with an extension of service life. Orion was recently adopted. This is his APD-115T.
          And the solution is simple, we have no motor factories ... Therefore, they are trying to stick an American one.

          Much easier. Likes were staged because Ukrainian motors are not a fountain. In the USSR, turbojet engines of this dimension were produced in Ukraine. Naturally, until the cock pecked, no one in Russia bothered much with the creation of a new line of gas turbine engines on their territory. Russia found itself in the position of getting out of the Munchausen bog. And the point is not at all the absence of factories, but that new, competitive engines need to be developed, certified and manufactured. It takes many years and money for any GTE manufacturer.

    They haven't forgotten how to create, probably ... but to produce serially, with high quality, in sufficient quantity and with proper service during operation ???
    What are the points listed, do we all want acceptable ???
    Oh yes, with the range of products we really need, how are we?
    So sho for the designers, ours, I'm glad, but everything else, as it became sour and for a long time!

        the reform of the education system "succeeded".

        What kind of aircraft engine building is there ... Chickens laughing.

        The next one would probably be a declaration like this:

    I don't want to swear, but articles like "... everything is fine, beautiful marquise, everything is fine, everything is fine ..." - they strain, very much, what awaits us tomorrow? if today we do not want to assess what is happening - soberly?
    Nothing good ... apart from the swamp itself ...

    And also the Russian Federation remains one of the leading powers in terms of creating engines for helicopters, if the Pentagon sometimes buys Mi-17V-5 helicopters for Afghanistan.

    I did not see the engine building, did not see any design bureau with young promising designers, or production shops with the latest machine tools, or the production of turbine blades, but I saw a liter can of compote, which was demonstrated by the low vibration of the turbojet engine, already seriously smoked on the test bench
