All-Russian aircraft engine PD-14 went into series


For the first time since the 1980s, the serial production of an aircraft engine, completely consisting of Russian components, started. At the beginning of this year, the Irkutsk aircraft plant already received two ready-made PD-14 units for installation on the domestic medium-range passenger aircraft MS-21. The executive director of Rostec Oleg Yevtushenko told about this the day before.


The development of the “14 Tons Perspective Engine” started in 2008. The domestic unit PS-12 was taken as the basis. Assembly of the demonstrator began in 2012. In 2015, the PD-14 was installed on the IL-76LL for flight tests, and already in 2018, the domestic engine passed certification.

Recall that this power plant belongs to the family of turbofan engines with a take-off thrust from 9 to 18 tons. PD-14 is intended to be installed on the “21st Century Mainline Aircraft (MS-18). At the same time, more powerful modifications, such as the promising PD-214R, in the future can be used on the Tu-96, IL-300-96 and IL-400-XNUMXT.

The leading manufacturer of the domestic engine is UEC-Perm Motors JSC. It is worth noting that the PD-14 has several advantages over similar power plants. For example, the specific fuel consumption in cruise mode is 15% less than that of competitors, and the cost of the life cycle is 20%.

    News plus. We can when we want. Now all the forces must be devoted to the manufacture of NK-23D (24 tons) and PD-35 (35 tons).

    XNUMXst Century Mainline Aircraft

    - isn't it too pompous? No matter how it happened with a superjet.

    ... he has 15% less fuel consumption and a 20% life cycle cost.

    - This is a major breakthrough, but is that so? It’s for sure, they’ll promise it, but after a few flights he will have something fall off, but there are no spare parts. Russian quality, as you know, is not the best.

    Good news. But specifics, specifics ???? Where???
    How much will they release?

    15% less than competitors, and the cost of the life cycle is 20%.

    Which competitors? The Chinese? French? The Japanese? Mercedes or Roll Royce? Boeing? Or compare with the Brazilians?

    And it looks like another urya victory, and then it will be like with the Superjet ...

      Have you read the article?

      At the beginning of this year, the Irkutsk Aircraft Plant already received two ready-made PD-14 units for installation on the domestic medium-range passenger aircraft MS-21.

      Which competitors?

      Only the British Rolls-Reuss and the American General Electric, the US-Canadian Pratt & Whitney make such competitive engines. With engines - analogues of our PD-14, created by these companies, and compared our engine.

      And it looks like another urya victory, and then it will be like with the Superjet ...

      As with the Superjet, it definitely won’t. There is a PD-14. The fate of the Superjet is due to the fact that it is mostly French engine SaM-146.

        The answer is about nothing.
        1) There are 2 pcs of finished engines under the article. AND?
        2) About 3 firms - in the article and this is not. So with which of them do we compare?
        3) So he used to be super-super in the media.
        And then all of a sudden! And it turns out that the French SaM-146 engine is not a super-duper at all.

          1.) There are 2 pcs of finished engines under the article. AND?

          The first two production engines were installed for installation on the MS-21. The plane is provided with domestic engines.

          So with which of them do we compare?

          PD-14 is no worse than foreign competitors, namely the PW1000G and CFMI Leap-1 gear motor. At the same time, the advantage of PD-14 is a reduced temperature of gases at the turbine inlet (by 60-80 degrees).

          And then all of a sudden! And it turns out that the French SaM-146 engine is not a super-duper at all.

          They didn’t agree on money with French partners. The French want too much to get for the engine, that’s the catch. It’s easier to make the PD-9 engine for the Superjet by yourself than to go broke in partnership with the French, who do not need a competitor in our person.

            1) About plans it is necessary, contracts, business plans ... and not "2 is all."
            2-3) Now it’s clear. It turned out much better and more informative than in the article.

      How many orders for aircraft with Russian engines will be, so many will be released. What to worry about?

      Which competitors? The Chinese? French? The Japanese? Mercedes or Roll Royce? Boeing? Or compare with the Brazilians?

      There are few competitors

      In addition to domestic companies, only firms in the USA (Pratt & Whitney, General Electric, Honeywell), England (Rolls-Royce) and France (Snecma) own full-cycle technologies for creating modern turbojet engines.

      Brazilians play football well, and Mercedes was seriously engaged in aircraft engines under Goering.
      In general, Pratt & Whitney USA, Rolls-Royce England, CFM International, the French together with the Americans are releasing something, there is also International Aero Engines, together there are Americans, Germans and Japanese. In general, the United States, England and the EU “team” and all sorts of variations of joint ventures. (I can be mistaken in some ways, since I’m not a professional, I hope the specialists will correct them). As for the PD-14 itself, competitors, like, two, the American PW1400G and the European CFM Leap-X.

    Yes, they read the article, released 2 pieces, you can already laugh, or how. I understand that the patriots of Vovkin need universal approval, but as they say, you will get through.
