At the moment, engineers are working on the creation of a new middle-class engine PD-8, which will be based on technical solutions implemented in PD-14. All attention is focused on the development of the so-called "hot part" of the power plant, the rest is already there. In addition, the functionary noted that due to the fact that the PD-14 has already been certified, the appearance of the average PD-8 unit will not have to wait long.
In addition, Bocharov spoke about the possibilities of further development of domestic engine building. So, for example, the PD-14 installation can be developed to a more powerful PD-16 or, conversely, deformed to PD-12. However, this is not all; The priority area of the Russian aviation industry is the creation of the heavy PD-35 unit, which can be installed on wide-body liners.
Recall that the PD-14 turbofan engine was developed by OEC-Aviadvigatel JSC (Perm) and is intended for installation on MS-21-200 / 300/400 aircraft. The take-off thrust of the unit is from 9 to 18 tons.
