Completion of work on the creation of the PD-35 engine is postponed to 2030

A promising super-thrust engine designed for the Il-96-400 and An-124 wide-body aircraft will be developed with a schedule shift for another two years. This was announced by the General Director of the state corporation "Rostec" Sergey Chemezov.

In connection with the sanctions, we have revised some investment programs. For example, part of the budget for the PD-35 engine program was reallocated to other high-priority tasks, including the creation of PD-14 and PD-8 engines. But we do not abandon this development, the main goals of the program will be achieved within the agreed time frame. Russia needs this engine to create super-heavy transport and wide-body civil aircraft, as well as units for the oil and gas industry

- said Sergei Chemezov.

At the moment, the readiness of the PD-35 is estimated at 40%. But production facilities are concentrated on the manufacture of PD-8 and PD-14 engines for short- and medium-haul liners. After the departure of Boeing and Airbus from Russia, it became necessary to speed up the creation of completely domestic "Superjets" and MS-21.

Completion of design work on the PD-8 and PD-14 and their launch into serial production will allow civil aviation to gain independence from the whims of the West. The demand for long-haul transportation in Russia is much less, and IL-96-400 can close it.

The PS-90A engine for this airliner is already ready, and serial assembly of these aircraft will begin in 2024. Therefore, there is no special need for the PD-35 engine, just as there are no free production and human resources to quickly complete the work on its creation.

However, the head of Rostec does not abandon the promising project. The creation of the PD-35 will be completed by 2030, after which it can be argued that Russian civil aviation has overcome its dependence on Europe and the United States.

    R&D is underway on PD-35. If it goes? And here are the production facilities, the factory. First, make an engine in iron, test it. PD-35, at best, is on paper, like desires.

      R&D on the PD-35 is underway. Work on the PD-35 began in 2017. Last year, a gas generator for the PD-35 was tested. The first prototype of the PD-35 will be fully assembled and tested in 2024, according to the same Inozemtsev. Roughly speaking in 1,5 years. It’s just that earlier the PD-35 engine was supposed to go into production in 2028, and now 2 years later, that is, in 2030. For now, there is a wide-body Il-96-400M with 4 PS-90A1 of 17,4 tons of thrust each. Later they will create a twin-engine version of the Il-96-400M with two PD-38s (a modification of the PD-35 for the Il-96-400M). In the meantime, there are still no other aircraft for the PD-35 (PD-38). Unless it's a CR-929, but it's all in the fog. So there's nowhere to rush. The main thing is to master the technology and create an experimental PD-35.

    Another promise named after Khoja Nasretdin floundered in the air...

    It was ready and tested in 2012. I have a photo. I made them myself at the factory. Rogozin was still there and empty-eyed Basargin. They then blinded him from the ps-90a. Ps 90a is a cool engine - I won’t argue here.
    Exact date: 20.07.2012/XNUMX/XNUMX.

    Nothing else can be expected from this Chemezov with his UAC and UEC. They can only milk the budget, endlessly talk about promises, safely fill up all cases and shift deadlines. How much can you put up with it. Isn't it time to retire this gentleman and change his team. After all, even the long-suffering PD-14 has not yet been brought to mind and not launched into a series. Although a few years ago they announced that the engine was ready, tested and certified.

    Rostec does not need aircraft. He has other priorities.
    Why rush to develop if you can milk the budget for many, many more years.
    If you hurry, you will make people laugh and you will be left without money.
    Still no one will punish anyone.

    Yes, many do not live up to! It’s a pity, even a Kuzya from repair or a new aircraft carrier, I won’t even see the campaign!

    The main thing was mastered the money, then they will cut the budget for a new one

    There is no need to regret that "we will not see when they create a new engine." We see and have seen the main thing: our history is the history of endless frictions "back and forth" ... If you see a cycle, then everyone has seen it! Then everything will be the same .... And there is nothing to watch.

    And then the longing from the endless repetition: "these eggs interfere with us, we will cut off so as not to feed" - "Let's return our valuables!". One more time, many more, many more times...

    For example, first nationalization, then privatization, and again and again ... Or we change our shoes to a different caliber during the hostilities ... and before that we also changed shoes.

    And so in everything for a century, starting from the collapse of the Republic of Ingushetia and the USSR and the accession-detachment-accession of Ukraine and ending with the Moskvich car ....
