Ukrainian enterprise "Motor Sich" announced the production of composite blades for the Mi-24

56

In Ukraine, they declare the development of the latest technologies. Thus, the Ukrainian company Motor Sich creates composite blades and glass cockpits for helicopters.

Vyacheslav Boguslaev, President of Motor Sich JSC, announced this at the opening ceremony of the Ukrainian Helicopter Championship.



He promised that this year the company will manufacture the first composite blades for Mi-24 attack helicopters with anti-icing properties.

We are pleased to report to the leadership of the country and the region that a composite blade production has been created in Zaporozhye. We go further, develop it.

- said the head of the enterprise.

At the same time, he noted that metal blades are cheaper, so their production will not be phased out.

We will produce them all our lives.

- Boguslaev asserts.

He also spoke about the creation at Motor Sich of modern "glass cabins" for helicopters of various types. The head of the enterprise said that there are already three variants of this development, which have a high degree of localization. This means that the creators mainly use Ukrainian-made components.


In May, it was announced that the production of metal blades for Mi-24 helicopters was certified at the enterprise, and the first three sets of these products were handed over to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Before that, it could only be released in Russia.

      Super Power! By God, over and above! In all seriousness, the GDP is in the anus, but the blades are made of composite material! They are vaccinated from covid with a liquid made on Malaya Arnautskaya Street in Odessa, but they create nanocabins for Orthodox Milevsky turntables! Definitely a superpower! laughing

            They gave a blunder with Georgia in 2008,

            There was no "blunder". The main thing is that the 58th Army did not have its own Georgian in the wagon train, who could be put in place of Mishiko the tie-maker. So we limited ourselves to a local operation.

      These blades are not certified by the Moscow Helicopter Plant. Mile, at the helicopter data developer. And we have new composite blades for helicopters, I personally saw them at Kazan Helicopter Plant (Kazan Helicopter Plant) 10 years ago, they were proudly shown. Available for all models.

      Accordingly, any machine falls out of warranty if these blades are installed on it. And the aircraft market is conservative. This means that all buyers of new helicopters will disappear, they will have problems with Russian service, to which most of the foreign customers do not agree.

      There are a number of countries, however, which are armed with helicopters made in Russia / USSR, but which, in principle, do not conduct military-technical cooperation with us. Eastern European NATO countries, the USA (they have a not very advertised fleet of Mi helicopters of different models, as "non-standard systems"), Georgia, Ukraine ...
      For them, these blades might be of interest. But for middle-aged cars, it is better to buy original metal blades, it is more reliable, because these machines are finalizing the resource. In addition, it is unprofitable to put unverified (not certified) and expensive blades on helicopters for an early write-off.

      But with certification there are also alternative moves for Motor Sich. Certification in the USA, for example. They would have carried out tests, received papers ... In Russia they are not recognized, but the buyers of this particular product do not really need this.
      They have one thing: the blades can be positioned as compatible with the motors they produce. That is, a set of blades + 2 x TV3-117, with overhaul and replacement.

        In Ukraine, there is now a problem - all Mi-24s are chained to the ground, which is why they urgently needed new blades in order to repair at least something and use it in the troops.

        And there is still a long way to export there, although of course Ukraine can compete with us in this market. Now Ukraine has access to Western technologies and even Western financial assistance, so it is not a problem for them to establish the production of blades.

      Well, actually, in classical Ukrainian: "helicopter" is "vertolite" .... Well, as now - I don't know! There, for 30 years already, they have been so diligently distorting their own language!

          Because it was not necessary.
          There were enough Russian blades for everyone.
          And then they began to fight with Russia, and refused to buy spare parts for combat helicopters. I had to master the production ourselves.

    The head of Motor Sich Boguslaev was one of the sponsors of the Party of Regions and actively advocated cooperation with Russia. And this plant and design bureau would have worked for Russia, if someone had not swallowed the Novorossiya project. By the way, Zaporozhye before the revolution, Aleksandrovsk is a Russian city.

    Found the service life of the blades for the Mi-8 helicopter about 9-10 years, with a possible extension of the service life.

    And then he looked and saw that almost all Mi-24s of Ukraine do not fly, are in storage and can be seen just because of the lack of spare parts, including blades.

    I think this is exactly the problem that Motor Sich tried to solve by creating their own blades, at least some, in order to lift a fleet of about 30 Mi-24 attack helicopters into the air, which in the future will be able to equip with anti-tank weapons and use as hunters for armored vehicles and attack the fortified positions of the LDNR ...

    Previously, there were no problems with blades in Ukraine, but now it seems to have become acute, since 2014 Russia, I hope, has not supplied such blades to Ukraine, although they could have bought them through third countries.

    Now Ukraine can make these blades itself, and if these blades turn out to be no worse than Russian ones and cheaper, they can also export them to other countries using Soviet / Russian helicopters.

    Russia should keep this situation under control and, if necessary, crush Ukrainian partners by dumping in this market.

      Motor Sich is actively developing the helicopter segment - at this stage, repair, modernization, including remotorization, new avionics and other elements, including a helicopter training and training center.
      The production of modern blades is one of the elements. We bought equipment, the staff was trained in the States. In the future, Boguslaev plans to fully manufacture helicopters.
      The helicopter company was supposed to be in Belarus, but Lukashenko and Boguslaev fell out and the helicopter department began to develop in Zaporozhye practically from scratch.

          Children's question.
          Since time immemorial, Motor Sich has been actively involved in the repair of helicopter engines throughout the world, where there were Soviet helicopters, and now it is wider - Turkey, for example, has increased, a couple of years ago, Motor won a tender for the repair of 17 helicopters from Turkey.
          Until recently, in the USSR and in the post of the USSR, almost all engines for mass-produced helicopters, including the Mi-8, were produced by Motor, and only recently Klimov's production appeared.
          The motor simply expanded the range of works; it had and still has a service market for a long time.

              Motor Sich produced 25 TV000-3 in total.
              Turkey is an example of the fact that new countries have been added to the usual geography of the spread of Soviet helicopters.

    Ratmir, thanks for the answer.
    To "revitalize" the Mi-24 of the Ukrainian Air Force, composite blades are not needed; standard, proven ones are also suitable. And they are unified with the Mi-8, there are no problems with their presence.
    It is absolutely unprofitable for single helicopters to invest in the production of technologically complex products, when simpler and more proven ones have long been established ... This is precisely an export venture.

    Reference on rotor blade design for these helicopters:
    The design of the blade is typical for helicopters of the Mi-8 and Mi-24 families: a pressed spar, repeating the outer contour of the nose contour of the blade made of aluminum alloy, to which 18 aft compartments-sections with aluminum skin and honeycomb filler are glued. The end of the spar is closed with a cover. A plug connector is attached to the cover and a valve is located for pumping air into the cavity of the side member. On the rear wall of the spar, near the end of the butt part of the blade, there is a cap-signaling device for the pressure of the alarm system for damage to the spar. At the tip of the blade, a contour light lamp is installed. The main rotor is equipped with a brake designed to reduce the rotor stopping time, as well as to lock the transmission in the parking lot, the brake is installed on the main gearbox housing.

    I didn’t say that they are interchangeable. They are technologically unified, the models are slightly different. Then he gave a description of them in terms of design. This means that I did not quite accurately put it, I was misunderstood. Of course, you cannot bet from one to the other.
    But there are no problems with the presence of blades. If Ukrainian Mi-24s are on the ground, it is not because of the blades.
    And it is certainly not necessary to create a composite production for several machines.

    So there are no problems to create, these technologies are still from the USSR, it's just that even for the Russian Federation it is expensive to develop such production and it can pay off if all MI-8, MI-24, MI-35, MI-38 and all Kamov machines are brought into the sphere of influence. the globe, that is, about 10000 pieces and what can Ukraine do? Its 25 crocodiles and fifty eights, and a couple of dozen sold to Africa MI-8 and that's it. And such a production to sculpt to produce 2 dozen sets of blades per year? One set of Kazan HPO costs about $ 120-130 thousand, in order to compete, it will have to be supplied cheaper than Kazan, producing only 2-3 sets per month with the need for one set of 5 years, with an annual flight time of at least 400 hours. Even specialists will not have money for salaries with such volumes
