The engine "Cortege" has become an aircraft


Summer 2019 years сообщалосьthat the automobile engine of the Cortege family can become aviation. Since then, very little time has passed, and now, it became known that the Central Institute of Aviation Motors named after P.I. Baranov (TsIAM), is a member of the SEC “N.E. Zhukovsky ", completed the research work" Adaptation ".


The details of the transformation of the automobile engine into an aircraft were shared with RIA News CIAM employees. It is noted that engine tests as part of a propulsion system with a propeller were successful.

The head of the TsIAM department, Lev Finkelberg, explained that an assessment was made of the possible use of such an engine on twin-engine nine-seat and single-engine six-seat aircraft of local airlines. According to him, the most difficult thing was to adapt the fuel system, ignition and control systems to aviation regulations. But CIAM engineers were able to solve these problems, despite the design features of the units and their location on the engine.

The main difficulty was to obtain the required characteristics, since in the “aviation” modes the car engine almost never works

- said Finkelberg.

It should be added that the tests were carried out on the screw stand of the Voronezh LLC “Experimental Design Bureau of Motor Engineering” (LLC “OKBM”) by the specialists of CIAM, NAMI (developer of “Cortege”) and the mentioned OKBM. During the tests, engine characteristics were obtained in the range from small earth gas to take-off mode, its starts and throttle response were checked. So the results confirmed the specific characteristics declared in the technical task for liter power, fuel consumption and engine weight. Studies of the APD-500 demonstrator, created on the basis of the Cortege automobile engine, will be continued. Ahead of testing in the TsIAM thermal pressure chamber and testing on an experimental aircraft.

    Is it a photo, or is it really so ugly? Especially the grilles below, and the radiator, does it bring something to the Chinese-car industry? However, maybe someone will like it, anything can happen. Well, what about the engine, I find it difficult to say something, what does this attempt to unify mean? Either the aircraft engine seems to be needed, but there is nothing more to take as a basis, or is it a very successful solution that kills the “2 birds with one stone”? Well, and the engine may not be bad, nevertheless, Porsche Engineering applied to the development.

      Whether the aircraft engine seems to be needed ...

      There has never been and never will be anything good from crossing a “snake and a hedgehog”! Another desire of "developers" to sit on two chairs! Absolutely different requirements for mass-power-temperature-flow (fuel and air) and many other characteristics! In the first approximation - a simple cut of public money at R&D as agreed by all parties involved! The crime is obvious!

      Come on you. We do not ride on this "member". Let them ride and think it's cool and beautiful. laughing And the fact that the engine was “tamed” there for aviation was called - I want to be a Rolls-Royce. Agree, somehow it’s unprofitable even for those who have money, like fools - candy wrappers, to do an engine only for piece these horror stories. wassat Let them at least do something already. Everyone has his own hobby. For example, I draw. Medvedev Dmitry Anatolyevich over there loves computers. Well, someone likes to play “cars”. So nothing special.

        It’s much better to draw. It’s not so expensive for the state. And I think, to buy a dozen Rolls-Royces for "this fraternity" would be much cheaper than these "games with cars."

          yes Yes. Especially for the country's budget is not so expensive. Although it’s half the trouble to play cars. And children's fun for the budget. It’s worse when someone came up with a supersonic strategist Tu-160 to do a business plane, and I’d like to say that it would be better to draw this one. laughing

      “They are all like that now.” If you look at Rolls, Maserati or the same Cadillacs - all the same chromed plastic, cheap gratings, etc., everything is so unnaturally brilliant that it hurts your eyes ... that’s why the general impression of the "Chinese automobile industry" is about cheaper segment I generally keep quiet. The ageless classic design, the last real chrome on cars, the quality and real solidity of exclusive brands are a thing of the past, along with letters on paper and cassette recorders ... crying

    Why is there no data on engine power and fuel consumption? Indeed, precisely because of these parameters and its hybridity, this engine will have advantages over competitors. It was claimed that its power would be 860 hp. and another 100 hp will give an electric built-in motor, i.e. In total, you can pass for 1000 hp. during further development. And this is exactly the engine that the new An-2 generation needs in order to carry up to 19 passengers.
