Tens of billions allocated in Russia for new aircraft engines

The Russian government is allocating 44 billion rubles to expand the production of aircraft engines for civil and military aircraft. This was reported by the press service of the Cabinet of Ministers.

On behalf of the President, the production of aircraft engines for the entire line of domestic civil and military transport aircraft will be expanded. For these purposes, the United Engine Corporation will be able to use over 44 billion rubles from the federal budget

- indicated in the message.

Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin stressed that the country needs to minimize dependence on foreign materials and equipment.

It is planned that the allocated money will be used to produce about 50 PD-8 engines for Superjet aircraft, two dozen PS-90A engines for Tu-214 narrow-body aircraft and 14 PD-14 engines for MS-21 medium-haul airliners.

Along with this, these funds will be used to develop and create a high-thrust engine PD-35. All work on this power unit is planned to be completed within two years. Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov has been appointed responsible for the implementation of the program.

Meanwhile, UEC-Perm Motors is implementing the Development Impulse program, during which a system for the production of PS-90A, PD-14 and PD-8 aircraft engines will be established. The program is aimed at increasing the throughput capacity of the plant's shops, as well as at using new capacities of the enterprise, taking into account the use of the concept of lean production.

    It’s amazing.
    In 2022, the government finally "stuck" that engines were needed.
    And before that, what were they doing there in the government?
    Were they waiting for the Soviet factories, which had not yet been completely plundered, to expand themselves?

    Don't worry Russia.
    With such a government, the rapid development of the economy does not threaten you.

      PD-8 for SSJ - three prototypes were made and used in the test program.

      two MS-21s with PD-14 engines are flying with might and main under the certification program.

      For comparison, the Chinese analogue, Somas-s919, is equipped with the American CFM International LEAP-1C, and no remotorization programs have even been announced.

      Although it would seem, where is the Russian Federation and where is China in terms of industrial power ...

      In general, the MS-21 and C919 programs are surprisingly similar.

      before them were the SSJ programs from the Russian Federation and ARJ21 from China.
      start of programs - 2007-2008
      first flight - 2017
      copies at the moment - 6-7.

      But the MS21 has a Russian composite wing and remotorization for the Russian PD14,
      at С919 - everything is simpler, and this is with a more than sufficient sales market.
