The Russian aircraft engine PD-200 developed for the Be-8 amphibious aircraft entered the flight test stage

Russian aviation The PD-8 engine, designed to replace the French SaM146, entered the flight test phase. This was reported by the press service of Rostec.


The United Engine Building Company has begun flight tests of the latest PD-8 power plant, designed for installation on the Sukhoi Superjet NEW short-haul passenger liner and the Be-200 amphibious aircraft. The engine was installed on the Il-76LL flying laboratory of the LII named after Gromov UAC, tests are underway at the airfield in Zhukovsky.

At this stage, the engine must confirm the correctness of design solutions and safe operation. The fact that work on the creation of a promising aircraft engine PD-8 entered the stage of testing prototypes was reported at the end of October this year.

In 2019, Deputy Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Oleg Bocharov said that a new medium-class PD-8 engine is being created in Russia, the development is based on technical solutions implemented in PD-14. The engine is being created to replace the French SaM146 and the Ukrainian D-436 on Be-200 amphibious aircraft and for the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100). The PD-8 type certificate is to be received in 2023, such plans have been repeatedly announced in the UEC.

In the basic version, the engine has a take-off thrust of 7900 kg, now the option of creating a new engine for the Mi-8 helicopter based on the PD-26 gas generator is being considered, but the final decision remains with the Ministry of Defense. The developers plan to create a whole line of medium-class engines based on the PD-8, including the helicopter PD-8V.

    Great news, we can if we want and really need it. The Be 200 and Sukhoi 100 should fly on Russian engines. A fact with which it is impossible to argue.

      In fact, in a year, tests of the PD-35 will begin. That will be cool.

        Something, it seems to me, was delayed with the PD-8, I have been hearing about its tests for a long time, I hoped that they would soon be allowed into the series. Indeed, without it, a complete paragraph. And of course we are waiting for the new PD-35. If these two engines are available in sufficient quantities, the production of domestic aircraft may also improve, it will be enough to fly on Boeings and Airbuses, Russia cannot be without its own aviation! All sorts of gaydars did not want to understand this, but life shows that not everything is sold for money!

          Indeed)))
          Let's see how it really is:
          В 2019 year Deputy Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Oleg Bocharov said that in Russia a new medium-class engine PD-8 is being created, development is based on technical solutions implemented in PD-14.

          That is, development began in 2019, and flight tests began in 2022, that is, in 3 years ours created an engine, and you say that the development was delayed? )))
          Yes, against the background of everything else - the development of the PD-8 is very fast.

        It will be cool if they can put the PD-8 on the Mi-24/35)))

          The PD-8V is being prepared to be installed on the Mi-26. The VK-24 engines are on the Mi-35 / Mi-52, Ka-28, Mi-2500NM.

    There would be no happiness, but misfortune helped. That's it. Industry development. Sometimes sanctions help.

      Who is to blame that we start doing something only when we are forced, after the sanctions.

        Well, this is the eternal problem of Russia. Until the fried rooster pecks in one place, the peasant will not cross himself.

          You can still deal with this. But sanctions began to be introduced not yesterday or even last year, but 8 years ago. And the result in the field of civil aviation engine building is expected only next year. Such a long "baptism" no economy can withstand.

        But I don’t ask: “Who is to blame?” ...! For I know who has been in power for the last “more than twenty years”! I remember how smart people, moreover, seriously worried about the fate of Russia, yelled "good obscenities" ... sounded the alarm, warning about the inferiority of the socio-economic model approved in the country by Putin's ruling regime! We have repeatedly spoken about the danger of losing a number of industries ... production opportunities for Russia! Did the "supreme commander" listen to such warnings? Hardly ! For all this krenoten was going on with him!

          And on the other hand, if we had accelerated import substitution, sanctions against us would have been introduced much earlier ... And now the tests of the PD-14 are being completed, this year the tests of the PD-8 will be completed. - The result is obvious ...

    Normal production will begin in about 5 years.
