Tests of the engine PD-14 continue

8



Tests of a new generation of aircraft engine PD-14, designed to equip the promising Russian civil aircraft MS-21, are completed with both Russian and Ukrainian combustion chambers (CS).

This was announced to reporters during the opening of the Moscow Engine Forum MDF-2014 in Moscow by the General Director of UC Joint-Stock Company United Engine Corporation UDC Vladislav Maslov.

“Tests of PD-14 aircraft engine are carried out with two combustion chambers. Indicators of which of the COP will be better, that we intend to use in the engine, ”said Masalov.

He added that the Irkut Corporation, which is developing the MS-21 aircraft, also continues to cooperate with Pratt & Whitney, whose PW1400G engine was chosen as a foreign power plant for the new Russian airliner.

As previously stated in Irkut, the normal practice for the global aviation industry is to ensure that the aircraft can be equipped with two or three types of engines.

      Somehow I think that it is precisely your engine that must be given priority

    I think the question of choosing the country of manufacture of the combustion chamber is no longer worth it.

      I think they will choose the best option. And we ourselves can do the "Ukrainian" COP, if that.

    About world practice is not worth talking about. Because everything is there. And in our case, everything is against us. So we need to focus on our components, at least for the domestic market.

    Well, not all at once! First we enter the market, and then gradually we will reduce foreign components and produce our own! While this is not profitable .. Although for many countries, aerospace enterprises always use a good part of foreign parts, because all the best cannot be in one state! But in such a huge country like Russia and our thousands of non-operational factories, it is quite possible to realize it and I think it is being realized!
