PD-35 is an aircraft engine capable of increasing the competitiveness of the Il-96-400M

One of the main aspects and the main difficulty in the global aircraft industry is engines. Currently, this factor is almost the main “headache” when creating Russian aircraft. The timing of the release of new Russian-made aircraft, such as the MC-21 and SSJ-100, largely depends on the timing of completion of the process of creation and certification of domestic PD-14 and PD-8 engines.

The PD-35 engine is rarely mentioned in news aviation agenda, however, it is one of the main keys for the release of the Il-96-400M, its introduction into civil transportation and the development of domestic long-haul aviation in general. The development of this promising engine is carried out by the United Engine Corporation holding company. The PD-35 is capable of providing higher thrust and efficiency compared to previous models. In fact, this engine is an improved version of the PD-14. Due to its high characteristics, the PD-35 can be used on a wide range of modern passenger airliners.





Development of the PD-35 engine began in 2016. The project was ready a year later. According to the original plan, a demonstrator was to be created in 2023, the development process of which was to be completed in 2025, and already in 2028 the PD-35 was to go into mass production. Subsequently, due to the redistribution of production assets to other engines, the timing had to be changed.



So far, it is planned to install four PS-96A-400 engines on the Il-90-1M, but this solution is less profitable from an economic point of view. Replacing four PS-90A-1s with two PD-35s will make these aircraft more competitive in the passenger air transportation market.

However, at present, priority is given to the production of engines for the MC-21 and SSJ-100, and the start of serial production of the PD-35 has been postponed until 2030, which is quite logical, since the share of long-haul aircraft in domestic airlines does not exceed 10%, and therefore priority is given to short-haul and medium-haul aviation.

    Yes, put the issue on stream already... for so many years there have been only words and shifts to the right...

    What is the priority goal at the moment???
    Replacing the fleet on domestic routes or do we need a long-haul fleet???
    In the article, priorities are set in a certain way, everything seems logical...

    I think it should be unified with the military commissariat, if not a 100% unit, then it should be assembled on the same line and with common units.
    Then there will always be a minimum level of orders. Competencies will be preserved, and production itself will live.

    Currently, all we do is watch for manipulation of priorities and shifting deadlines to the right. One would hope if AT LEAST ONCE these deadlines corresponded to plans or prospects. But this is not our method.
    Not a single direction in science and technology was presented with real prospects...
    I won’t talk about the carrot in front of the donkey’s face... Convince yourself...
    Otherwise, you draw a lot of plans there, but things are still in the same place.
    We had enough time to check the correspondence between the presence of words and deeds...

    Therefore:
    PD-35 is an aircraft engine capable of increasing the competitiveness of the Il-96-400M

    It won't do this in the foreseeable future...
    We are waiting for prospects for the Su-75...

      It's very easy to answer.
      PD-8.
      The pace of its development and production is faster than previously planned.
      And the demand “from above” is strict, and the design bureau and production workers work on it day and night.

          There are problems of “childhood diseases”, which in itself is a common thing. And yet, we are significantly ahead of schedule.

            I have enough information that Russia has started flying domestic aircraft...

    Postponement of the deadline to 2030 is pure sabotage, especially since we have already approached a prototype in hardware. What will the design and technology team leading this engine do?
    6 years is too long for an engineering team to be idle. The production base will also wither, experienced mechanics and metallurgists will scatter to other industries or go to work as taxi drivers and will not return.
    The situation is stalemate, not a single engine on either the Superjet or the MS-21 or the IL-112, 114 can be brought to fruition.
    Another issue is the safety of IL-96 flights. With two engines, is there a guarantee that in case of failure it will continue to fly, for example, over the taiga or the ocean?

      The production base (I hope you know where it is) is not idle. And a quiet life (let alone idle time) is not expected there for the next 15 years for sure.
      Yes, everyone there was knocked off their feet, putting all their available strength and resources into the work.

        It’s like during sex, there is sexual intercourse, both are sweating, but the child doesn’t get it.
        Maybe you need to not fuss, get knocked off your feet, but calmly and thoughtfully do the work.
        You see, there is no result!!! and for another 15 years there will definitely not be such work.

    it is precisely this that is one of the main keys for the release of the Il-96-400M, its introduction into civil transportation and the development of domestic long-haul aviation in general.

    The PD-35, if it ever appears, will not save the Il-96-400M. These engines simply cannot be installed on this aircraft, which was designed for four completely different engines. The project will have to be completely changed. This means it will be a completely different plane.

    Soon the tale is affected, but it is not done soon.
    Work on the engine is underway.
    And where it is actually made, it is mentioned on the work agenda no less often than PD-14 and PD-8.
    The work is really progressing at a good pace and with achievements.
    Is it possible that the G8 topic has overtaken priority?
    The engine will be there and there is enough reason for this.
    But that's not all.
    The airframe of the aircraft needs to be redesigned for a new engine. Conduct a series of ground tests - aerodynamic, strength and a bunch of others.
    Then put the engine “on the wing” and test again - flight tests, control systems, certification.
    In short, if you do it wisely (and there is no other way in aviation), the time frame for the appearance of an aircraft with an updated remote control turns out to be not so short.
    But the road will be mastered by walking.

    Is it logical? What about heavy transport workers, like Ruslan, who are needed and whose term will end, but there are no new ones? PD 35 is just right for them.

    What again? Well, as much as possible, the PD-35 will not fit onto the IL-96. It is necessary to redesign the engine mount, and with it the entire wing and all the aerodynamics must be recalculated. And why is he so handsome?

    While the SVO is in place, the work will probably be frozen or will take longer than the scheduled time. Let's wait, we really need this device!

    But then the wing must be shoveled for this engine, because I think it’s not possible to simply attach one engine with a different mass to the wing instead of two

    They will launch it when everything becomes outdated and no one needs it, but the money has already been spent
