    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.

    I see your the type that ignores knowledge and goes marking full blast.

    These are already heavily competitive to P&W. PD-14 exists for a reason. Hell, even PS-90 newest variant is competitive.

    It went down, no survivors. Pilot reported a 'technical' problem and was to attempt a return to Aerodrome, then the plane disappeared from radar. 71 casualties.

    Russia plane crash raises new questions about safety of Antonov jet

    http://www.latimes.com/world/la-fg-russia-crash-investigation-20180212-story.html


    ...One An-148 crashed during a training flight in Russia in March 2011, killing all six crew members on board. Investigators blamed pilot error....

    Pilot error my ass, they probably dropped it on the pilot in order to keep ''joint'' useless political project running.

    ...In 2010, another An-148 operated by a Russian carrier suffered a major failure of its control system, but its crew managed to land safely.

    In September, one engine of a Saratov Airlines An-148 shut down minutes after takeoff, but it landed safely. And in October, another An-148 that belonged to a different Russian carrier suffered an engine fire on takeoff but also managed to land. Engine shutdowns have occurred on several other occasions....

    This thing is a flying coffin and disaster waiting to happen.

    On top of everything it's existence probably hindered introduction of SSJ-100 in the earlier phases which would have saved lives.

    Just about time, Rostech is badly missing small and medium helos for civilian markets. But I am afraid with French engine.
