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.

      Everything in order to finally destroy the main Soviet engine NK-93, as a competitor to the PD-14, in many respects, the PD-14 loses to the NK-93 up to 850 km per hour. And they are developing the PD-14 for the characteristics of the European Union, and not for their country .What, for all 20 years, they destroyed civilian aeroflot, such manufacturers as IL and TTU for the sake of a super jet, where 85% of foreign-made parts were originally laid. Statistics-Russian-made aircraft - 157 out of 723 or 21,7%. But these 157 86% or 136 are the Sukhoi Superjet (SSJ-100). And this means that the "Russian" part of the fleet is very dependent on the supply of foreign components.

    old song about...
    where is the money that was previously allocated and the engines promised earlier?

      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.

    Manturov is also the Minister of Industry and Trade. Or maybe vice versa, trade and the industry that joined it?

    Not like before, when there was an independent industry and light and medium and heavy. And all with fewer officials.

      The texts are taken from the forums! but for the Il-96-400 and An-124 aircraft, it is the NK-93 that is needed. The designers assume that they will easily bring the thrust of the Samara engine up to 23.5 tons, and this will make it possible to equip the An-124 with such engines. For the Il-96-400, it is safer to have four NK-93s than two PD-35s, and their outer diameter is about 4 meters, the NK-93 has an outer diameter of 3150 mm ... and the fuel consumption is 0,49, while the PD- 14 fuel consumption is 0,54. Therefore, now, after the lapse of years, Z0g smashes the authorities for anything, but not for the NK-93. You can read about the engine on the CIAM wiki, issued a verdict. According to the Council, modifications to 4th generation engines (D-18T, NK-93, NK-32) will not ensure the competitiveness of Russian engines in the period after 2025
