Tests of the PAK FA fighter will continue


“The specialists practically completed the investigation of the incident at MAKS, when test pilot Sergei Bogdan was forced to stop taking off due to the abnormal operation of the right engine. In the coming days, testing of the aircraft will be completed, and it will continue to carry out the test program, ”a source in the military-industrial complex, reports Interfax.

As the newspaper VIEW reported, on the last day of the MAKS-2011 air show in Zhukovsky near Moscow, the newest fifth-generation Russian fighter T-50 (PAK FA), which will be handed over to the Russian Air Force, for technical reasons, stopped the demonstration take-off from the airfield. During the acceleration of the fighter, a flash was visible on the lane, after which the aircraft stopped with a released parachute.

The reason for the cancellation of the takeoff of the fifth generation T-50 fighter at the MAKS-2011 aerospace show in Zhukovsky near Moscow was the deviations in the automation of the right engine of the aircraft, a spokesman for the United Aircraft Building Corporation (UAC) said.

    They said it was surging. But surging usually occurs during transient engine operation. And here is the take-off mode - the fuel and air supply is stable, no differences ... And where are the sensors? Unclear.

    See the root, as Kozma Prutkov said. Why look for the culprits or the reasons. They are already visible to all sane people without glasses. These are our valiant ministers led by the chairman of the GDP party. Engines clearly got counterfeit parts. Nobody thinks about their engine building. We prefer imported ones, although they are much worse, but there are big kickbacks in foreign currency. For some reason, recently, we have everywhere punctures, and mainly due to engines. Is it time to clean up some people, and maybe not only clean up, but also provide a sleeping place in places not so remote. Again the question arises - where is the Path looking? After all, he, and only he is primarily responsible for thoughtfulness, and not only that. Near the malfunctioning fighter, there were clearly no EdRosov preparing to cut the ribbon and scream about victory. They play in the primaries, pretending that they are so democratic that they will let people outside the EdRo list on the Duma elections. But the naive is becoming less and less. All to the polls.

      Thanks for the short but positive comment! After all, only 2 countries pulled the 5th generation! In general, well done - and the plane will be good

      Probably with the negativity it is also necessary to be more careful - otherwise a chain arises - Bad edros - bad Putin - bad plane - bad country - well, just like Starikov - it remains again for the joy of the British to arrange a revolution

      I myself urge to vote for the Communist Party - but it seems to me you shouldn't overdo it and play along with the opponents - you shouldn't completely "omit" everything that is now in Russia

        Definitely !!! Here, it’s not even a matter of playing along with the opponents, but respecting oneself through the respect of the enemy.

          That's right - edroses are certainly not our party - but we won’t lower the whole country and beat even the equipment - as the military-industrial complex and the defense ministry can now survive - on the contrary, support them

    The T-50 is now powered by domestic engines of the first stage (edition 117) produced by NPO Saturn. Here is the link:

    There is nothing special in the engine, it is time-tested, its main difference is the automatic control of its modes, fuel supply, etc. in short, a lot of things are controlled by the computer. It’s like in a car, the engine is carbureted and injector. All problems will be fixed, the main plane is safe and sound. .

      I agree, I don’t remember a single case that they did something, and there was not a single refusal, right away in the series. They will understand and fly, and will be the best! We always have it! fellow

    Any technique is not trouble-free, but you need to strive for this. Let it be better that malfunctions arise at the test stage than during the use, so there are more chances that they will be eliminated ahead of time

    A new plane, still "raw" ... They will work on the errors and fly, not going anywhere.

    Of course, we do not have America, it’s there that the prototypes immediately go into the series and without a single break the entire service life ...
