    The first Russian aircraft engine of great traction will be certified in 2025 - the developer
    12/21/2012 2:17:23 PM
    *** It is needed by the Russian Air Force and for installation on long-range long-range airliners

    Moscow. 21 December. INTERFAX-AVN - The aircraft engine of the order of 35 tons, which is being developed in Russia, is planned to be certified in 2025, Interfax-AVN was told on Thursday by the press service of the company "ODK-Aviadvigatel".

    "In 2025 it is planned to certify in Russia the first aircraft engine of great traction PD-35, which will be built entirely of domestic materials and by domestic technology," the press service said.

    As reported, in 2016 a decision was made to develop a "heavy" engine with a thrust of 35 tons. It is necessary to achieve fuel efficiency on long-haul airliners and powerful military transport aircraft. September 23 this year, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that work on the regional IL-114 and the PD-35 engine will be financed not only in 2018, but also until 2020 inclusive

    "We agree in this way: in an emergency manner, so to say, we financed these expenses from Rosneftegaz until 2018 inclusively, and 2019-2020 should be financed from the budget, and I will agree with the Finance Ministry on this," Putin said. During the meeting with the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov.
    The head of state called this work one of the priorities. "We need a regional plane of our own, otherwise we will always buy everything abroad in this segment, but we need a powerful engine, PD-35 is needed." Many projects in aviation are connected with this engine, "Putin said.

    In the "ODK-Aviadvigatel" note that "on the basis of the engine PD-35 is planned to further create a family of aircraft engines of various traction up to thrust at take-off to 50 tons."

    According to the company, "the total cost of the PD-35 program is estimated at 180 billion rubles." Unlike the previous programs for the creation of aircraft engines, for the first time this amount includes the cost of capital construction. "

    "The cost of capital construction is necessary in connection with the novelty of the engine design.During the creation of the aircraft engine PD-14, it was possible to manage the modernization of the existing production and testing facilities.But for the creation and production of the PD-35 family, it is necessary to build a practically new production facility, as well as a new testing base" , - the press service informs.

    It is also believed that "the creation of a new production and testing base for the PD-35 engine will be a new growth point not only for the Perm bush of aircraft engines, but for the entire industry as a whole."

    Earlier it was reported that the Russian military are interested in the implementation of the program for the creation of the PD-35. Commander of the Military Transport Aviation Vladimir Benediktov at the MAKS-2017 air show noted that the Russian army is armed with "superheavy, strategic aircraft that need a more powerful engine." "Therefore, in the future, we are very much looking forward to the new PD-35 with increased traction, suitable for such vehicles," said the military commander

    Also, a two-circuit turbojet engine of ultra-large thrust PD-35 is planned to be installed on the perspective Chinese-Russian wide-body long-range aircraft, which now has the working designation C929.

    It was reported that within the framework of the work on PD-35, it is intended to scale the gas generator from PD-14 for the medium-range perspective aircraft MS-21 designed and manufactured by Irkut Corporation.

    PD-35 in seven years. That is a very good timeline. I guess the China-Russia wide-body will be ready by then too.

    Boy... up to 50 tons thrust.... that is double the afterburning power of the engines currently in the Tu-160 and Tu-22M3... so the former could become a twin jet and the latter a single jet engined aircraft... assuming they have ABs of course.... the PD-35 would most likely be a subsonic high bypass engine so the easiest way to get it to 50 tons thrust would be to make it a medium bypass engine and put an AB on it.

    The PD-35 will be good for a new range of heavy transports too.

    It seems there is Russian involvement with the European ENOVAL project

    ENOVAL - Ultra High Bypass Ratio Aero Engines
    http://www.enoval.eu/


    Russia is working on an innovative project highly economical, low-noise aircraft engine of the new generation....

    The prospective project work experts of the Central Aviation Motors. PI Baranova (TsIAM). The development was named ENOVAL. It should be noted that this project, Russian engineers are working together with the European partners. Company representatives noted earlier that the new engine is to appear as early as 2025. By this time, experts hope to carry out all necessary studies and tests.

    The new engine should have a low noise level and high performance in terms of efficiency. Head of the department of CIAM VI Mileshina previously reported that the new development goes aerodynamic and acoustic research using domestic birotativ fan. And this fan has been designed in two versions. European engineers decided to create a "engine", which eventually turned out to be worse than the Russian product.

    The specialist also said that further tests will be carried out in the first half of 2018 in the research center operating in CIAM. Russia has advanced equipment, fully meets the requirements of the construction of such a complex technological and in terms of the design development. Such joint projects can significantly raise the overall level of development of the Russian engine. In addition, the scientific expertise will allow the Russian Federation in the future to create a domestic power plants for the whole range of civil aircraft....

    The L-410NG aircraft received European and American certificates

    https://topwar.ru/133657-samolet-l-410ng-poluchil-evropeyskiy-i-amerikanskiy-sertifikaty.html

    Director of Aircraft Industries for sales in Russia and CIS, Sergei Martynov said that in 2018 the company plans to manufacture the first serial L-410NG.
    We are negotiating with potential customers. Probably, the first L-410NG will be delivered to one of them in late 2018 - early 2019, and it is possible that to Russia,
    said the resource Martynov.

    It is reported that "in 2017, the Czech aircraft manufacturer built and delivered 12 aircraft to the customers, but it is obvious that gradually with the production of L-410UVP-E20 at the Ural Civil Aviation Plant, the output of these cars in the Czech Republic will decrease."

    The project of deep modernization of the 19-turboprop L-410UVP-E20 aircraft was launched in 2010. The first flight of the L-410NG was made in Kunovice in July 2015.
    According to the resource, the main differences of the L-410NG from the L-410UVP-E20 are: "The use of H85-200 engines with a power of 850 hp. (instead of H80-200, 800 hp), a modernized wing with additional fuel tanks, double luggage space, etc. "

    Contract documents reveal plans for Russia's new widebody engine

    A newly-signed contract discloses key details of Russia’s design goals for the country’s first high-bypass gas turbine engine in the 75,000lb-thrust power class launched on 19 January to support the CRAIC CR929 widebody, Ilyushin Il-96-400 and several military projects.


    The $1.13 billion (₽64.3 billion) contract awarded by the Russian government on 19 January calls on United Engine-Aviadvigatel to develop a demonstrator engine named the PD-35-1 by 2023 featuring several state-of-the-art technologies, including wide-chord composite fan blades and composite fan case, ceramic matrix composites and advanced cooling systems.


    The PD-35-1 also will be designed with a compressor pressure ratio measuring 23:1, the contract documents posted on the Russian government’s procurement agency says. That falls a step below the 27:1 ratio planned for the high-pressure compressor section of the GE Aviation GE9X engine now in development testing for the Boeing 777X.


    But the documents still reveal a plan for Russian industry to make dramatic progress over the next decade. Building on the advanced metallics now in testing in the 28,000lb-thrust PD-14 turbofan, the PD-35-1 will drive Russia to introduce composite materials pioneered by GE over the last 15 years. The Aviadvigatel PD-14 is Russia’s homegrown alternative to the Pratt & Whitney PW1400G on the Irkut MC-21 narrowbody.

    In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Russia’s deputy prime minister for defence and space industries Dmitry Rogozin notes that the Soviet Union never produced a turbofan engine over 70,000lb-thrust and the PD-35-1 will become the first in the region’s history.

    “We really need it,” he says.

    Russia and China have teamed up to develop the CR929 under the CRAIC joint venture between Comac and United Aircraft. CRAIC is expected to select an engine made by GE or R-R to introduce the CR929 into commercial service by the end of the next decade. Separately, China and Russia each plan to develop indigenously-sourced alternatives to the Western powerplants for the CR929. The PD-35-1 also would be used to power several Russian air force development projects, including the Il-476 airlifter, Il-478 tanker and a long-term effort to replace the Antonov An-124.

    Mimicking the structural configuration of the Boeing 787’s GEnx-1B engines, the PD-35-1 engine will be designed with wide-chord composite fan blades and a composite, the contract documents show. The documents don’t specify if Russian industry plans to use a similar process as GE’s 3D woven composite materials.

    The turbine of the PD-35-1 will be exposed to temperatures as high as 1,450°C (2,640°F), exceeding the melting point of most advanced metal alloys. To help the turbine survive, the contract documents say Aviadvigatel must integrate exotic new materials and advanced cooling systems. Two types of ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) – silicon carbide-silicon carbide (SiC-SiC) and carbon-silicon carbide (C-SiC) will be used in the PD-35-1 demonstrator engine, the contract documents say. GE pioneered the use of CMCs in the Leap-1 series of engines that it produces with Safran under the CFM International joint venture.

    To any one who understands Engine Technology , is this a downside of PD-35 its compression ratio ?

    Heat engine efficiency is determined by temperature gradients. It is difficult to infer from the pressure what the temperature of
    operation is of the PD-35 vs. GE9X.

    Also, the article you posted is full of propaganda shit. The "GE did it first" BS is thick and rich. It's equivalent to bleating about
    "we used metal to make our engines first". The real sophistication is in the type of ceramics and composites that will be used and
    nobody with any clue can fob Russia off in this regard.

    I am no engine expert but if they can build a competitive engine in PD-14 versus LEAP and PW1400 GTF , I think they wont settle for any thing less building an equivalent engine of western peers

    Aeroflot signed a contract with Rostech for the lease of 50 MC-21 aircraft

    https://www.aeroflot.ru/ru-ru/news/60720


    February 1, 2018, Moscow. - Aeroflot will become the largest operator of the newest Russian main-line aircraft MS-21. The historic contract for the delivery of 50 new-generation passenger aircraft will be signed today between PJSC Aeroflot and Rostekh State Corporation.

    Under a firm contract, Rostekh's subsidiary, the leasing company Aviakapital-Service, will provide the airline with operational leasing of 50 MC-21-300 vehicles. Thus, Aeroflot will become Russia's largest tenant of the newest domestic airliners. The amount of leasing payments and maintenance reserves will be more than $ 5 billion.

    In the layout for Aeroflot, the liner is designed to carry 169 passengers (16 business-class seats and 153-economic). At the first stage, the contract
    provides for the supply of aircraft with a foreign engine. Starting with the 26th aircraft, the airline has an option to receive airliners with the new Russian PD-14 engines, which are now being certified.

    The first aircraft should be delivered in the first quarter of 2020, the completion of shipments is expected in 2026. The lease term of each aircraft is 12 years, with the possibility of prolongation for 2 years no more than 3 times. Aeroflot plans active commercial operation of the aircraft both on domestic and international routes.

    "The deal confirms that the Russian civil aviation industry is recovering its lost positions in the past and ranks in line with the world's leading manufacturers. MS-21 is a truly breakthrough result for the aviation industry. The aircraft uses advanced materials and systems of the latest generation, created by leading domestic companies. In particular, Rostekh produces for MS-21 titanium and composite parts, on-board electronics, chassis components, other systems, as well as its "heart" - PD-14 engine. We are confident that this engine will be selected by Aeroflot as the main power unit for the MS-21, "said Rostekh CEO Sergei Chemezov .

    "The signing of a firm contract for 50 MC-21 cars is a historic milestone not only for our companies, but for the whole country," said Vitaly Saveliev, General Director of PJSC Aeroflot.. - Russia has created the first trunk plane of the new generation. This is evidence of Russia's return to the status of a great aviation power. Signed that the signing of a firm contract between Aeroflot and Rostegh coincided with another, no less significant for our country: Aeroflot officially returned to the global aviation elite - entered the top-20 largest air carriers of the world. Today, including taking into account the geopolitical situation, we see that for the development of success, we need a competitive domestic technology - high-quality and economical. Therefore, it is extremely important for us to cooperate with Rostech, our major partner and shareholder. "

    MS-21-300 is a medium-haul narrow-bodied aircraft created by the Irkut Corporation (part of the United Aircraft Corporation, UAC) in cooperation with the country's industrial companies. In the production of the aircraft, Rostecha holding companies - VSMPO-AVISMA, DCC, Technodynamics, KRET, RT-Khimkompozit - are actively involved.

    The liner is equipped with an innovative ergonomic cabin and has improved performance thanks to innovative design solutions. For the first time in the world, a wing made of polymer composite materials was used in such an aircraft. The share of composites in the design of MC-21 exceeds 30%, which allows to significantly increase the payload of the aircraft.

    The airliner has the largest in the class of narrow-body aircraft with a fuselage diameter (4.06 m) - this solution provides passengers with a qualitatively new level of comfort. In particular, the cabin of the aircraft has an increased passage between the seats and rotary luggage shelves of increased capacity. Specially on the order of Aeroflot on the liners, it is planned to install Wi-Fi equipment that provides passengers with access to the Internet.

    https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/singapore-sukhoi-considering-pw1000g-power-for-sup-445615/

    Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCAC) has launched a major "shrink" derivative of the Superjet – and the variant could be powered by Pratt & Whitney's PW1000G geared turbofan when it enters service in 2022.

    SCAC president Alexander Rubtsov revealed to FlightGlobal at the Singapore air show that a launch decision for the 75-seat derivative was made "last week" following a 100-aircraft commitment from an undisclosed Russian airline....

    100 planes commitment from single Russian carrier alone? That's pretty impressive. Which one could it be?
    I don't think Aeroflot does small stuff so it's most likely someone else but who knows?

    Engines are secondary issue, there is plenty of time since they are optional anyway. What matters is that planes are manufactured and sold. They can always replace engines later.


    I know Sukhoi promo team is currently touring Pakistan and Singapore with SSJ-100 so there also could be something there.

    https://rg.ru/2017/11/14/superdzhet-100-stanet-menshe.html


    Also, when they mentioned ''Superjet shrink'' in headline I thought they were sending that plane to see a psychiatrist. lol1

    Quotation Korotchenko with figures: The volume of financing for the development of the ground infrastructure of civil airports in 2000-2016 . amounted to about 497 billion rubles . 103 airports were modernized, 64 runways were reconstructed. To develop the ground airport infrastructure of remote and northern territories on the basis of 66 local airports and 15 landing sites , 7 federal state enterprises were created . According to figures, it should be about the number of about 800 local airports and landing sites. However, it is obvious that so many will not be invested and the issue will again be stretched to infinity.

    By comparison for 2010, there were 15095 airports in the United States and accounted for 70% of the world's domestic air transportation.

    The usual context-free propaganda BS. The vast majority of those US airports are rinky dink Cessna venues and not actual major airports that can service all sorts of aircraft. The same goes for 70% of all domestic transportation. This is mostly Cessna level private flight. No shit Russia does not have this culture. It was under 70+ years of communism and then a massive economic collapse from which it is still
    recovering.

    Ilyushin" is considering the possibility of installing PD-35 on an IL-96-400M

The modification of the Il-96-400M with PD-35 will give the potential customer the option of choosing the airliner model with an optimal for him the layout, "- noted in the company.

    IL-96-400M is created on the basis of a serial certified Il-96-300 aircraft in order to further improve this type of vehicles and expand their transport capabilities by extending the fuselage and installing more powerful engines. Depending

    Well well, si Il-96-400 can be produced even before CR-929 goes in numbers? All Russian can be base for air tankers or sold to Iran or other "dictatorship" markets.

    In spite of all the rabid claims in NATO how Russia's media is "state run", a huge part of it is pro-NATO and full of BS talking
    points. The purpose of repeating this meaningless statistic is to spread anti-Russian propaganda about how vastly
    undeveloped Russia is and how far in the Heavens is the precious west. An example of such NATO bootlick media in
    Russia is Kommersant. This "respected" rag formerly owned by Berezovsky (the gangster oligarch) was busy trying to
    bolster the claims of Syrian jihadis that they destroyed 7 Russian jets on the ground by trotting out totally irrelevant
    photos of some aircraft damage (clearly not from mortar blasts). Job number one is to support Russia's enemies.

    Looks like Sukhoi has cancelled the SSJ-NG in favour of SSJ-75 , they mention its a business decision so as not to compete with Bombardier in the 130 seater market.

    I am hoping Sukhoi will push for more RUssian component for SSJ-75 including PD-7 engine.

    Smaller version of SSJ-100 airliner may come to market in 2022

    ......


    Not just Bombardier, it would also overlap with 200 seat version of MS-21.

    SSJ for 100 seats or below, MS-21 for above 100 seats. Makes sense.

    When will the PD-18 come out? Is it a midline between the PD-14 and massive PD-35, capable of powering large 2 engine widebodies?


    When will russia make a a turbofan with a higher thrust and bypass ratio than its PW equivalent along with having composite fan blades? That could be a far better marketing point and a lot more buyers will flock to the Russian engines because they've "proven" themselves to make a PW/GE competitor thats better in every possible way.
