PD-14 in the air: MS-21 made its first flight with a new engine


The Russian new-generation passenger airliner MS-21-310 flew for the first time with Russian-made PD-14 engines. This was reported by the press service of Rostec.


According to the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov, today's flight of the MS-21 with Russian power plants in action has proven the effectiveness of the state policy in the development of high-tech industries.

We have formed a new generation of designers and production workers

- noted the functionary.


In turn, according to the head of the Rostec corporation Sergei Chemezov, the creation of the MS-21-310 liner with domestic engines returns Russia to the top league of world aviation.

The tests were carried out at the airfield of the Irkutsk Aviation Plant. The flight lasted 1 hour 25 minutes. The crew, consisting of two experienced test pilots and an engineer, checked the aircraft's controllability, engine modes, and the operation of all systems.

Recall that the newest short- and medium-haul airliner MS-21 made its first flight on May 28, 2017. Until today, an American-made PW1400G unit was used as a power plant.

The aircraft is now undergoing certification, which should be completed by the end of this year. Serial production is scheduled for 2021. Presumably, Aeroflot will be the first operator of the new-generation domestic liner.

      So catch up, no one minds. Brazil launches competitor MC-21?

        Brazil produces hundreds of aircraft, which the MC-21 is not a competitor to.

          From it like belay

          Embraer's Adjusted Net Loss in Q2 2020 was $ 198,8 million.
          Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer supplied four commercial jets and 13 business jets in Q2 2020.
          Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, financial forecasts and forecasts for aircraft deliveries for 2020 are currently not being implemented.

          https://www.aex.ru/news/2020/8/5/215432/

          Is this this Embraer or something else? Do they have an explosive growth in production in the second half of the year? Has the coronavirus been beneficial?
          Which of the aircraft produced by the company is a competitor to the MC-21? As far as I understand the largest E195-E2 with a capacity of up to 132 passengers, the maximum can be 146, but without the business class "absolutely economy" is like a herring in a barrel, but this practically does not happen.
          MS-21, depending on the modification, from 132 to 211 passengers. As far as I remember, there was no talk about the start of production of the MC-200, which means the MC-300, that is, from 160 passengers. And where do they intersect?
          In general, Superjet, yes, competitors yes , MS-21 no request due to the "absence of" aircraft of comparable spaciousness.
          So the offer is valid. Take Brazilians to yourself and compete with them yourself hi

            How many passengers, even on domestic airlines, since its inception, has the MS-21 carried?
            You can not answer.

              Then we might not have asked winked
              Well, since they asked .... no less than Embrayr E195-E2 on the same internal lines.
  2. After all, we can do it if we want! Well done - one word!
