New domestic helicopter engine VK-650V entered the stage of bench tests

The new promising VK-650V helicopter engine developed for the Ka-226T and Ansat-U helicopters has entered the stage of bench tests. This was reported by the press service of the United Engine Corporation (UEC).


The tests are being carried out at the stand of the UEC-Klimov enterprise in St. Petersburg. At the moment, the first engine start has been carried out and its key parameters have been evaluated. After the stage of bench tests and confirmation of the performance characteristics of the new engine, a decision will be made to install the VK-650V on the helicopter for further tests.

The engine started the first time, the expected performance during the first start was confirmed. This is the beginning of a long journey that we have to go very quickly. The result will be Russia's first serial engine for light helicopters such as Ansat-U and Ka-226T

- Said the press service.

The development of a new VK-650V gas turbine turboshaft engine was announced in 2019. In July 2020, the Ufa Engine-Building Association ("UEC-UMPO") announced the start of production of the VK-650V demonstrator engine. The new engine has a takeoff power of 650 hp. sec., as well as in various modes gives out from 400 to 750 liters. with.

Earlier, Anatoly Serdyukov, who holds the position of industrial director of the aviation cluster at Rostec, said that the domestic engine for the Ka-226 helicopter will be certified in 2023. It was also reported that this engine could be offered to Russian Helicopters for the production of the Ansat helicopter.

On Ka-226T helicopters, the Russian VK-650V is to replace the French Arrius 2G1 engines.

    The "Frenchman" in the USSR in the class of 500-700 horses was Antonov's dream for the modification of the "Bee" back in the 70s. We almost reached an agreement with Turbomeka on the organization of production with us. Yes, not destiny.
    Well, Serdyukov, if you make such an engine for Russia - to hell with you and your women.
    “Therefore, the tactics of creating a new motor corresponds to the proverb“ Better a bird in the hands than a pie in the sky. ”For the sake of the speed of launching a new product to the market, the developer abandoned risky technical solutions that promise a noticeable superiority in basic technical characteristics over existing competitors. should reach 650 hp, while in emergency mode the power will be 750 hp for a short time. Specific consumption in takeoff mode should not exceed the rather conservative 245 grams / hp per hour and 280 grams / hp. per hour at cruising mode, which is slightly better than that of foreign counterparts. The delivery weight will not exceed 105 kg. "

        His strong alteration went - An-28. The very real replacement for the An-2, about which there are so many dreams. If we then had engines, the Canadian DHC-6 would not have been so much fun. And there was a chance to make a "Frenchman" at home.

              I am aware that the S-80 was planned to replace the An-24 and Yak-40, but the small passenger capacity of 30 passengers did not suit. The passenger cabin, by the way, is much more comfortable. If this car also had a domestic engine ...

                This is someone's wretched excuse. Aircraft for 30 passengers are in great demand in the world. And by 30 ± 10.

                I am not yet listing those who have a capacity of 7-15 passengers.
                There was simply no time for MVL in the country. And then foreign cars poured into us.





                However, now the MVL is no better: the airfield network is fucked up, the standard of living is low, the industry is monopolized by 101% ...

                    And why with them, and not with the Tu-154 or Pilatus-Porter? :) In the USSR / ex-USSR, the An-2, L-410, An-28 were in full use (these were less than the L-410); and in the 1960s and 70s, even the 4-seater L-200 and the 3-seater Yak-12 flew. And almost all 1990s An-24s flew on MVL with a load <60%. 52 * 0,6 = 31. With the Yak-40, everything was no better. By the way, most of the Yak-40s had a capacity of 30 and 32 cr. And the maximum (including, by inconvenience) is 36, not much more than "scary small 30". :)
                    In short, an excuse. Moreover, stupid, wretched and rotten.

                      From the very beginning, the Ministry of Railways chose Bert Rutan's original a / d scheme and categorically refused to change it to the usual one (according to him, he did not want to make another An-24), but in vain. We had a lot of problems with the transverse and track control system (there were not enough moments to counter engine failure and much more), so the "extreme" car standing on your LIS was lengthened. And if we also add the absence of air brakes (problems with trajectory control at landing), large backlash in the control wiring (by giving the pedals from two control posts, it was possible to deflect their parts of the launch vehicle simultaneously in opposite directions), excessive efforts on the thrusters (the PIC was controlling the plane, and the co-pilot, straining all his strength, was engaged in the selection of the engine mode) and a lot of other ideological mistakes ... And finally - the plane was left without engines, because they were discontinued at GE.
                      In general, the plane was frankly turned out "not quite" and after finishing tests it became clear that it was pointless to present it on the SZI - it had to be completely redesigned "from scratch."


                      And so the project of the aircraft would be curtailed at the stage of testing and the release of the first serial fuselages. It took a place to release the SSJ-100.

                      Here was the last time he exhibited on statics in 2014:

But about "Rutan's scheme" he wrote nonsense. The S-80 is an ordinary two-boom aircraft a la Si-82 / -119 or Noratlas, only small. :)
                        By "Rutan's scheme" he most likely meant the ATTT tandem, but there were three bearing surfaces, not just two beams.

            Clear. Built, of course, less than planned, but the plane flew and was respected. But, basically, she worked in the PANKh and in the departmental aviation. True, the Czechs used it on the lines; but the Bulgarians are in fish-farming, ours are in various departments and the Ministry of Defense ...
            OKA did not give up and instead of "twin-engine Yak-12" made "twin-engine gas-turbine An-2" - An-28. But this time the USSR policy regarding the CMEA stood across the road - the An-28 was given to be built in Poland, and the L-410 was shoved into the MGA. The plane is also not bad, but for the Soviet / Russian MVL it is worse than the An-28.

                Most likely, this refers to the "field tests" initiated by Antonov:
                “In the summer of 1961,” O. Antonov wrote in one of his articles, “as an experiment, we marked 68 small settlements on the map, without asking if there were landing sites. And the pilot was given the task to land in each of them no further than 200-300 m from the outskirts. During three flights, the pilot visited all the designated points, choosing a site from the air, and fully completed the task. "

                I remember the story of how one general planted his headquarters instead of lead ingots. "Bee" took off from taxiing. The general was delighted

                Yes, with an estimated load of 4 people, the takeoff / run did not exceed 60 meters. With 6 passengers, which became its seating capacity in the series, the takeoff run was certainly greater. But also small.

                  There it was that one chairman complained that the combine had broken down, and there was no point in getting him a spare part. The pilot took the spare part, took off, landed the plane in the field next to the cambine, handed over the spare part and flew on
                  There was also a moment when the pilot handed the steering wheel to a journalist, gave a short briefing on how to fly the aircraft and went to the salon
                  The journalist was shocked, but quickly figured out what was what. It turned out that piloting the "Bee" was not at all difficult.
                  There were many interesting stories.

                      I remembered two cases. I read about one here on VO, and the second saw on TV. I'll start with the second one.
                      Project "Raffle" with Dana Borisova. They fly to the AN-2. Suddenly the pilot gets up and with the words "I'm tired of you all" leaves the plane by parachute.
                      Everyone is shocked, the co-pilot throws up his hands, like I have nothing to do with and says that he is a technician and cannot fly an airplane.
                      We are almost hysterical.
                      Then she was told from the ground that they would say on the radio what to do. With difficulty they persuade to sit at the wheel. And on the sly we started landing.
                      But it turns out that the technician is not a technician at all, but a real lighter and he gradually corrects Dana's actions.
                      In general, we landed safely
                      Now the first case.
                      It was before the war in one aviation school.
                      First flights.
                      There was such an instructor who had such a thing. During the first flight, and then the cadets flew, as is known on PO-2, he took off the handle, showed it to the cadet and threw it overboard.
                      That, willy-nilly, had to land the plane himself.
                      But there is also an old lady.
                      One cadet found out about the instructor's tricks; he took a second handle with him on the flight.
                      And as soon as the instructor took off and threw out his, he immediately took off and threw out his.
                      Now the instructor was in hysterics and panic.

                  Well, probably it was taken into account. She was not immediately put at the wheel
                  You can hardly teach something quickly. Another thing is, if you do not do anything and continue to fly straight, then this is quite possible. There, the co-pilot does not need to do the same. Just control that any stupidity does not throw out and that's it. I held on to the steering wheel for a while, quickly removed it and it was ready.
                  An experiment was carried out on "Galileo", on an examination simulator. But there it was necessary to land the board. The flight attendant at the prompts "from the ground" landed on autopilot. And now a couple of virpils were planting by hand. But their level of training was, of course, completely different.

    The "Frenchman" in the USSR in the class of 500-700 horses was Antonov's dream for the modification of the "Bee" back in the 70s. We almost reached an agreement with Turbomeka on the organization of production with us. Yes, not destiny.
    Well, Serdyukov, if you make such an engine for Russia - to hell with you and your women.
    “Therefore, the tactics of creating a new motor corresponds to the proverb“ Better a bird in the hands than a pie in the sky. ”For the sake of the speed of launching a new product to the market, the developer abandoned risky technical solutions that promise a noticeable superiority in basic technical characteristics over existing competitors. should reach 650 hp, while in emergency mode the power will be 750 hp for a short time. Specific consumption in takeoff mode should not exceed the rather conservative 245 grams / hp per hour and 280 grams / hp. per hour at cruising mode, which is slightly better than that of foreign counterparts. The delivery weight will not exceed 105 kg. "


    This is not all. Flight tests of the new domestic aircraft engine APD-500 (500 hp) have begun.
    ... We are talking about a new domestic engine for light aircraft, which was created on the basis of the Aurus car engine (developed by NAMI). The aircraft engine is created at the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (TsIAM) named after P.I. Baranova. The engine is called the APD-500 and is intended for use in light trainer aircraft in agricultural aircraft and for small passenger aircraft with a passenger capacity of up to nine people. It is also planned to be used in UAVs for military and transport purposes.

    Denis Manturov in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta said that this engine is already being tested on the plane:

    Now the demonstrator engine, after being tested at the CIAM high-altitude and climatic stand, where the characteristics of its operation under expected operating conditions were tested and confirmed, is being tested on an aircraft.
    On the other hand, as I was told at the stand, the differences from the base engine are minimal there - some changes in the camshafts and simply added a gearbox to transmit torque to the propeller. So it is not at all surprising that the tests pass quickly, because the base engine has been well tested for a long time: it is actually installed on the President's car.

          then there was no one to entrust other than Serdyukov. The mafia generals were satisfied with the status quo, why did they need to change something? As a former air defense officer told me, "Serdyukov undertook to do what no one had tried before."

          [/ quote] The Industrial Director is called upon to coordinate the product strategies of holding companies and identify synergies - to eliminate possible duplication of production. The Supervisory Board of Rostec made a decision to introduce the institute of industrial directors in June 2015. This was done as part of a program to optimize and improve the efficiency of the corporate management system. Industrial directors should form and develop industry competencies in industrial complexes, increase capitalization and the value of assets, their investment attractiveness, optimize the management structure, Rostec explained in a press release dated October 20.

          Based on the foregoing, Serdyukov has nothing to do with the production and certification of the engine.

      700hp this is no longer a very light aircraft and, moreover, an outstanding UAV.
      At 700hp the almost four-ton "Otter" flies with 10-12 passengers.
      But the engine is very necessary - we have not been doing anything in the "up to 40hp" segment for> 1000 years. TVD-10 / -20 was never finished, we don't produce M-601 at home ...

      Thank you, Eugene! Preempted my unnecessary knocking on the keyboard, but the thought is the same. In addition, the eternal problem of aviation is the "conflict between movers and glider pilots," who is more important. Some say, give us an engine, and we will make any glider for it. "Movers" said the opposite, give us the parameters of your "glider", and we will create an engine for it. And life has shown that the engine is the heart of any vehicle. No wonder, modern China can clone everything except engines. And Russia is slowly but surely advancing the "import substitution" program. hi

      It's not just addiction. The Ministry of Defense is not going to, and rightly so, order an aircraft with "non-our" engines. And a light helicopter, oh, is needed in the army / navy. Instead of light ones, such as the KA-226, they drive the Mi-8/17 empty.
