Serial production of the latest aircraft engine PD-14 has begun in Russia

The Perm Motors United Engine Corporation has begun serial production of the latest Russian aircraft engines PD-14. It is assumed that by 2030 the company will produce 160 units per year.

Russian economist Konstantin Dvinsky considers the start of serial production of the Russian aircraft engine PD-14 a real breakthrough in the Russian aircraft industry. After all, seventeen years have passed since the signing of the agreement on the creation of the PD-14.

PD-14 is our first engine, which was created in the modern history of Russia. And it was developed, indeed, from scratch, without the use of Soviet or foreign developments. In general, it is good that the decision to create the PD-14 was made far in advance. Otherwise, our aviation industry would not be able to ensure the production of aircraft

Dvinsky explains.

According to him, without serial production of the Russian aircraft engine, there could be no question of any serial production of the Russian MS-21 aircraft.

The economist is confident that the serial production of PD-14 engines will allow the domestic industry to ensure the production of eighty MS-21 aircraft per year by 2030.

MS-21 will be completely Russian, it has foreign components at the level of statistical error. So, as a matter of fact, it should be

- he notes.

In his opinion, now Russia has the necessary competencies to produce the entire line of aircraft engines. And this is completely our development from scratch.

The matter remains for the “small” - to organize their uninterrupted production

    It's nice to know that we did. But 160 a year... In seven years? Is this a SERIES production??

      Small-scale - the same serial ...

      So far, there are plans to transfer 2024 aircraft in 6.

      In the same news about engines:

      It is planned to transfer 14 engines next year

      It is understandable that the venerable commentators on the topcore will scoff at these figures in anger and contempt.

      However, I would note that there are not so many countries around the world who over the past 32 years have created their own new aircraft (jet for 100+ passengers), with their own engines.
      Of the aircraft manufacturers of the second row (Canada / Brazil / China / Japan), no one mastered this, and did not even really try.

      Since 21, the paradigm has changed dramatically in the MS-2022 program.
      It is clear that it is impossible to go abruptly and immediately from
      "we are slowly making the MS-21 with American engines and a couple a year with Russian ones"
      to "we need 100+ for 146% localized MS-21 yesterday".
      On Perm engines, they may be ready to assemble more engines, but are all other suppliers of components for aircraft ready?
      For engine nacelles, a month ago we just signed an agreement to expand the plant in Voronezh and picked up a land plot.

      For the PD-14 itself, the same components are needed.

      The Perm machine builder reported in January:

      a new building for serial production of engine nacelle parts and PD-14 engine assemblies was equipped at the Perm enterprise.
      after the commissioning of all equipment, the capacities of the enterprise reached the design 16 sets per year.

      For a larger production, they started to build an almost new plant.

      Rostec State Corporation plans to build in Moscow the largest industrial complex for the production of parts for aircraft engines,
      - In four buildings with a total area of ​​​​more than 77 thousand square meters. m UEC will expand the production of components for aircraft engines PD-14, PD-8 and helicopter VK-650V, VK-1600V

      Project documentation is at the final stage of approval.
      The Salut area on Budyonny Avenue was chosen as the base site for the complex.

      Here is such a growth with a rapid jack.
      It would be simple - they would not now start the production of the Tu-214 in parallel.
      (with which, incidentally, the same has its own difficulties, the history of the modernization of the Kazan plant is a separate story).

      so it will take a long time to maintain the airworthiness of airbuses and Boeings.
      Let's say S7 blabbed:

      The S7 Group has acquired the Berdsk Electromechanical Plant (BEMZ) to produce, test and certify the missing aircraft parts, BEMZ CEO Vasily Yurchenko told TASS.

      “The S7 group of companies has a number of enterprises that have different competencies in the repair and maintenance of the aircraft fleet. BEMZ is needed so that the group can produce, test, certify the missing parts,” he said.

      I apologize for the many letters....

        In continuation:

        in 2023 Aerocomposite plans to produce four aircraft kits for MS-21. In 2024, their number will grow to six.

        So what's the point of making more engines if there will still be 4 + 6 wings and center sections for aircraft in 2023-2024?

    Blah blah blah. How many engines in 2023 will pose the main question.
    It would be better if they made a serial engine for a UAV

    It is assumed that by 2030 the company will produce 160 units per year.

    Before that, one would have to live .... Otherwise, some want to send everyone to Paradise ...

    Show the plan for the production of PD-14 engines by year. How many PD-14 engines will be produced in 2023 and 2024??? Maybe it's enough to hang noodles on the ears of the people, to feed with words, here in 30 or 40 we will have Paradise.

    It should be noted that this news is not on the official websites of Rostec, UEC, Perm Motors.
    With great difficulty I got to the source of the news:

    Rostec plans to open a state-of-the-art production and training center (PTC) in Perm, where 2 multiskilled workers will be trained annually. The agreement on cooperation in the field of personnel training was signed by the governor of the Perm Territory Dmitry Makhonin and the industrial director of the aviation cluster of Rostec Anatoly Serdyukov.
    The first training center of the Rostec aviation complex was opened in Ufa on the basis of UEC-UMPO in 2019. Today, more than 1 students study at the center, of which 600 are students. A similar project was launched in Moscow in 985 jointly with the Moscow Department of Education and Science. This year Moscow colleges will recruit 2021 targeted students.

    And among other blah blah blah about this really worthy event, the words were said:

    “UEC-Perm Motors has started serial production of the PD-14 engine for the Russian medium-haul aircraft MS-21-310. By 2030, the annual production of MC-21 aircraft in Russia should be 72 pieces and 160 PD-14 engines should be produced annually.
    - said Vadim Badekha, General Director of the Rostec United Engine Corporation.

    Life has shown that one should be very careful with the words of officials.

    Doing something from scratch in the 21st century is, of course, tinny, so it remains only to start and finish, not to use the experience and developments of the USSR and abroad is very stupid, China did not reinvent the wheel, it just worked on an exact copy of Western models and ours, and now having gained experience they are doing something of their own, and for 30 years we have only been doing that they "lost their competencies" and now we have to reinvent the wheel in a new way
