Russian MS-21-310 with PD-14 engines made its first flight

The newest Russian medium-range aircraft MS-21-310, equipped with Russian PD-14 engines, made its first flight. The press service of Rostec reports.


According to the report, the plane took off on December 15, 2020 from the airfield of the Irkutsk Aviation Plant, a branch of PJSC Irkut Corporation. The plane spent 1 hour 25 minutes in the air. The task of the first flight was to check the operating modes of the power plant, the stability and controllability of the aircraft, as well as the functioning of its systems.

MC-21-310 was piloted by a crew consisting of test pilots Vasily Sevastyanov, Andrey Voropaev and test engineer Alexander Soloviev.


This flight is the result of the unification of two most important programs of the civil aircraft industry in Russia - the MS-21 aircraft and the PD-14 engine. Through the efforts of scientists, designers, engineers, workers, a new generation liner is being created, which returns our country to the top league of the world aviation

- said the general director of Rostec Sergey Chemezov.

It should be reminded that the rollout of the first prototype of the MS-21-310 passenger aircraft with Russian-developed PD-14 engines took place in early November. The aircraft was transferred to the flight test division of the Irkutsk Aviation Plant from the assembly shop. At the end of November it was reported that the plane was being prepared for the first flight, the systems were being debugged and tested.

The PD-14 turbofan engine has been under development since 2008. This is the first new Russian-designed aircraft engine over the past 30 years. The PD-14 two-circuit twin-shaft engine is capable of developing a thrust of up to 14 tons in take-off mode. The engine managed to pass full certification in Russia, and the European one is scheduled for the end of 2022.

The MS-21 will be supplied to Russian customers with PD-14 engines in the MS-21-310 modification, and for export - in the MS-21-300 modification with the American PW1400G power plants.

    Import substitution on the march!
    A number of engines are being developed on the basis of PD-14.
    Let's hope they won't be inferior to the best in the world.

      I would add world CIVIL aviation. After all, in combat, we still play in the top league.
      But in the civilian, I hope we will return, and seriously and for a long time

          Good news.

          Now we are waiting for the revival of regional transportation.

          Flying through Moscow is like cutting tonsils through jo.pu.

          Fuel consumption seems to be low.
          Perhaps someday strong people will appear in power and take up the revival of the country. There will be a country for people: not people for Aeroflot.

          Eurobus 320 spends 19 grams of kerosene to transport 1 passenger per 1 km.
          It is cheaper than driving alone by car.
          For our huge country, flights between cities can be made available to the population.
          If only our designers and engineers would have ministers who would think about the population and not how to master the budget.

            This is not decided by airplanes, but by the standard of living of the province. They will not stop flying to Moscow for obvious reasons, but in the provinces it is easy to stop flying. Passed many times. But this is an off topic.

              Stupidity.

              Now, to get, for example, from Tambov to Kazan, you have to fly through Moscow or St. Petersburg.
              This is where carriers, Moscow (St. Petersburg) airports (artificially filled with planes) and the government that receives tax from such maneuvers earn money. And people pay.

              This is cutting out the tonsils through the jo.pu.

              The cost of such a flight is several times more than a direct route.
              But there are no direct routes.
              I chose the route at random.
              You can fly to the neighboring city yourself.

              Moscow is packed full of tomatoes by planes, and the whole country is sucking (oil wassat )

              Where did you see the standard of living here?
              What does the standard of living have to do with it?

              In this state structure of our country, everything is decided only in Moscow.
              Moscow arranged life in the provinces as such.

              It was not the proverbial west that deprived the province of flights.
              So Moscow decided.

          Why minus?
          You just need to pay attention to the last paragraph of the article. And ask yourself the question - why is this?
          And after that, to understand that an engine with a bypass ratio of 8,5 against 12, as for example in the PW1400G, cannot meet modern economic requirements. Or take another engine and compare it with it. LEAP-X, for example. And understand that the compression ratio of 50 units is better than 41.
          However, for internal use PD-14 will do, we don’t count money, there is a lot of them.

            And do not confuse a geared motor with a gearless one. The reducer is an additional headache, additional problems and additional risks. Gearless - simpler and more reliable by definition.

              How to say it. The same AI-20, or NK-12 in terms of reliability, roughly speaking, is not surpassed. And in simplicity too. In terms of fuel consumption, they may lag behind, so they are already 65 years old. On the other hand, the gearbox itself is not a particularly scary thing about the engine. In any case, in any aircraft engine, and so a breakthrough of a variety of gears and gears.

            Their specific fuel consumption is very close. All three. So, the degree of bypass is not equal to the efficiency? Apparently not. Well, the compression ratio ... You need to look at the characteristics in the complex. I am not a motorist, but a physicist. Larger fan diameter means lower RPM. A reducer is required.
            And if they write to me - the same specific fuel consumption means the same ...

            In fact, the 1400G has a bypass ratio of 10 (while the LEAP-X has 9), and its characteristics are roughly equal. Honestly, I didn’t think that ours would succeed in something like that. Although, we will still look ... Since the days of Lotarevsky D-36 (this was a milestone) - the first normal engine, more precisely - a normal modern approach to the design of aircraft engines according to modern requirements. Finally, he will get engines be-200 and mi-26 and stop taking engines from beggars

            Your real CFM International LEAP has an average OPR of 40: 1 and only at the top altitude at a takeoff mode of 50: 1, which the PD-14 should also have, respectively.

            Well, kindergarten - take the "liked" characteristics and compare with PD-14. PD-14 can be roughly compared to Leap-1b. By the way, CFM56 are still well sold and produced, although the engine family has long been considered obsolete.

We cannot provide our planes for weeks. Inside the country. This is me about the problems of the Red Wings with the Tu-204. How long it will take to create a network for PD-14 1 is scary to imagine. So forget about PD-14 abroad. If foreigners buy SM-21, these will be PW aircraft. 101%

    The MS-21 will be supplied to Russian customers with PD-14 engines in the MS-21-310 modification, and for export - in the MS-21-300 modification with the American PW1400G power plants.



    In fact, so far 90% of the ordered cars, and these are all companies from the Russian Federation, with American turbojet engines.

      If the MS-21-300 are exported with the PW1400G engine, then the result may be the same as the SSJ. Namely, the refusal to supply spare parts, which means that we may again have problems with service.
      I think the leadership is not stupid and took into account this experience, so that they would step on the same rake.
      Py.Sy. Although, it is at the request of the customer that you can, of course, put the PW1400G, but prescribe all the risks in the contract and then let him rake it himself.

          I can’t tell you exactly, but it seems like there was infa that Aeroflot allegedly could not wait for the certification of our engine to end due to the end of the resource of the existing aircraft. Either we take from PW, or we get up, or we take planes again in the west.

      The main thing is not testing, but certification. Obtaining airworthiness certificates from the US and the EU will take a long time and will certainly lead to the fact that 75 ... 80 percent of the aircraft will become "western". This is instrumental, radio, navigation equipment (sensors, computers, algorithms). This is the price for the dissolution of the USSR. When I was little, there was no Airbus, but there was fish in the river.

        There my dear, there. At the end of our time, it dawned on us that any aviation project can be stopped with a click of the hand, the parts are imported.
        This unit is required to equip the An-148 and SSJ-100 narrow-body passenger airliners, as well as the Be-200ES amphibious aircraft. At present, Sukhoi Superjet 100 flies on the Russian-French SaM146, An-148 and Be-200 - on the D-436 manufactured by the Zaporozhye Motor Sich company.

      They may well. You can calculate how many A319-320-321 and all versions of B737 are in the country. So much for the market. The main thing is to give a normal service and leasing and a sane secondary market.

        If the A320 / B737 can be squeezed out on their market, that will be good luck, the plane seems to be very competitive.

      what do the numbers mean - 100, 200, 300

      Modification options for the aircraft with different carrying capacity, the number of passengers. For example, on the MS-21-200, a version of the PD-14 engine with a thrust of 12 tons should be installed. On the MS-21-400 PD-14M with a thrust of 16 tons. MS-21-300 engine for 14 tons of traction. Well, the number of passenger seats is different.
      There are modifications of the Il-96-300 / Il-96-400, respectively.

          Not really. At 737, only the first digit after the hyphen denotes "just modification". The other two characters code the customer airline. It is clear that over time some a / c leaves, others appear and the encoding changes, but at the end of the 1990s the system looked like this:

    Lubo! PD-14 is our new engine without "partners". Now only 4 countries have a full cycle of creating modern turbofan engines, they are Russia, the USA, Great Britain and France. We are waiting for the same solution to the issue in terms of PD-35, which will bring us to the level of world leaders in the class of the most powerful aircraft engines, where the English Rolls-Royce and the American GE dominate.

    Flying with a domestic engine is certainly good.
    And there is information, the glider of this particular aircraft from a domestic composite, or even from an American-Japanese?
    The issue of replacing composites is perhaps the most pressing issue now.

      As for the MS-21, the aircraft's most critically dependent component on foreign partners is the black wing, which will now be made of Russian composites. I am very sorry that foreign colleagues themselves denied the possibility of supplying these products to our joint project. But for us this, in a certain sense, is a plus. It was a challenge, but we coped with this challenge, taking into account the fact that my colleagues from Rosatom and I have long envisaged a project to launch the production of composite yarns in Tatarstan, in Alabuga.

      And today I can report that a center section made of Russian composites has already been installed on the MS-21. Thus, we have already coped with the first part of this task. In July, we put a full-fledged domestic composite wing at TsAGI for static tests. And I am sure that all the parameters that we initially laid down in the design of the aircraft, with replacement for materials from a Russian manufacturer, will be fully maintained.

    Back in October:

    The deputy head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade said that Russian manufacturers of composites, together with the developer of the MC-21 aircraft, had conducted qualification tests of domestic materials in accordance with aviation regulations.

    Tests carried out in centers certified by FAP "Rosaviatsia" have shown that all the characteristics of the materials comply with the requirements for the aircraft design.

    Irkut Corporation has started production of serial parts and assemblies from domestic composites.

    The transition to Russian materials will not lead to a deterioration in the flight performance and economic performance of the MC-21-300 aircraft

    I didn't even expect. I went home for lunch as usual (we have it since 12.00), I sit drinking tea in the kitchen and an MC-21 falls out on you from behind the house opposite with a U-turn over my yard, accompanied by a Su-30SM. Then I cut the circle a couple more times. Of course, they said that the flights were the other day, but I found out when I saw it with my own eyes :-)
    Moreover, so much work was invested in it, and still managed this year despite this crown, he himself fell ill for almost a month in November.

    "How many aircraft will be needed is a non-trivial question. In the pre-crisis period, our airlines owned at least 700 narrow-body medium-haul aircraft, which is the MS-21, in the form of its competitors Boeing 737 and Airbus 320," the aviation expert notes. Irkut announced its ambitions to occupy 70% of the domestic market. However, Panteleev notes that this is a fairly standard assessment by a company that sets the same goals in other market segments. Meanwhile, the expert believes that in addition to 175 MS-21 aircraft, for which there are already firm contracts, in the next ten years the Russian market has the potential to sell the same number of aircraft.
