    PD-14 Marks the first new Certified Engine in 2 Decades after PS-90 Series

    Russian Engine for Irkut MC-21 Wins Certification

    Russian civil aviation authority Rosaviatsiya has issued type certification for an indigenous engine alternative for the Irkut MC-21 narrowbody known as the PD-14, the country’s Ministry for Industry and Trade announced Thursday. A pair of MC-21 prototypes powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1431G geared turbofans now engage in flight testing, but PD-14 certification marks an important advance for the Kremlin-ordered Import Substitution program, aimed at achieving Russian independence in the commercial aviation domain.

    “In fact, the PD-14 winning the type certificate means that this engine is ready for delivery and commercial operation,” said minister for industry and trade Denis Manturov in a statement. “This enables us to assert that the first turbofan engine for commercial jets in the history of modern Russia has successfully been created.”

    Next, schedules call for the PD-14 program to gain validation with the European Air Safety Agency next year
    . Manturov expressed a hope that the MC-21 will soon commence testing with the indigenous powerplant following the planned shipment of three operable engines by the end of this year. The minister insisted that the PD-14 and MC-21 schedules “had been synchronized.”

    Compared with previous-generation Russian commercial turbofans, the PD-14 offers a fuel burn decrease at typical cruise of 15 percent, while featuring a bypass ratio of 8.5:1 as opposed to more commonly achieved ratios of 5:1 or 6:1. Its specifications call for fuel consumption comparable to that of the Pratt & Whitney PW1000G series and CFM International’s Leap family. Given that, the PD-14 claims its place as the world’s third engine purposely designed and certified for use on next-generation narrowbody jets.

    Preliminary studies into a next-generation turbofan began in Russia at the turn of the century. In 2008 Vladimir Putin made the decision to provide state funding for the project. Bench testing began in 2012 and flight trials in 2015 on an Il-76 testbed. Developed under the framework of the federal program dubbed “Development of Russian Aviation Industry 2025,” the PD-14 program started with a budget of 80 billion roubles ($1.22 billion) covering development and production setup. Perm-based ODK-Aviadvigatel leads the development effort while ODK-Perm Motors performs final assembly line in the city of Perm.


    The PD-14 marks the first commercial engine project executed under the umbrella of the United Engine Corporation (Russian acronym ODK), a government-controlled organization formed by the merger of Russian companies involved in powerplants, gearboxes, and other subsystems for applications in commercial and military aviation.

    As a result, the government distributed work packages to ODK members to cut development and production preparation cycles. In terms of technology as well, the PD-14 represents a drastic departure from the previous generation PS-90A. Using hollow wide-chord blades for the fan and blisks in the compressor, the newer engine weighs about three tons and develops 14 tons of thrust at takeoff. Engineers designed the baseline engine specifically for the 180-seat MC-21-300, but its derivatives can power both larger and smaller airplanes. The developer announced three versions of the PD-14—the PD-14A, PD-14, and PD-14M--featuring the same 1900 millimeter fan diameter. Intended for the 150-seat MC-21-200 “shrink” variant, the PD-14A produces 11 percent less thrust and resembles the baseline model but with a compressor pressure ratio of 38:1 rather than 41:1 for higher thermal margins. The PD-14M for the Il-96-400M and MC-21-400 develops 12 percent more maximum thrust. It features an additional stage in the compressor, resulting in an increase in pressure ratio to 46:1 and a drop in bypass ratio from 8.5:1 to 7.2:1. The developer also plans a higher-thrust derivative, known as the PD-18, incorporating a geared fan for maximum thrust of 18- to 20 tons; smaller versions designated PD-7 and PD-10 feature a reduced fan diameter for various Sukhoi Superjet variants. Meanwhile, plans call for use of the PD-14’s core in the PD-12 turboshaft, and for a larger PD-35 intended to power the Sino-Russian CR929 widebody.

    Supersonic passenger aircraft will be created in the Russian Federation in 2-3 years

    At the moment, TsAGI is forming a response to the instructions of the President to resume the program for creating supersonic passenger airliners.

    The first flight demonstrator of a supersonic passenger aircraft will be created in Russia in 2-3 years, reports the general director of the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute, Kirill Sypalo.

    “The work is underway, we hope that somewhere in the near future, in two or three years, we will already receive a full-fledged flight demonstrator for this object,” said Sypalo to journalists.

    He also stressed that the aircraft will be built on the basis of the technologies that have already been implemented on the Tu-144 project and in the projects of our supersonic long-range strategic bombers.

    Sipalo noted that the work is being done together by the Tupolev Design Bureau. Work is underway on the selection of layouts and in the near future the project will be presented at specialized exhibitions.

    Problems with the French part of the SaM146 engines on SSJ100 aircraft

    Ιt is reported by the Vedomosti newspaper in Alexander Vorobyov’s material, “the SSJ100 flies a little because of engine defects. Components from the French Safran fail much faster than the manufacturer promises,” the first Russian civilian aircraft SSJ100 fails to show, primarily because problems with the engines, top managers of four airlines operating these aircraft and three people close to leasing companies buying such vessels told Vedomosti.

    Claims for operational lifespan of parts is often exaggerated in the west...

    Claims for airframe life for the F-16 for example are usually quite generous and impressive, but require serious limitations of operations... ie no high g operations, no operations from short air strips, no operating at or near MTOW...

    It was the same for the C-17... it was supposed to be this amazing aircraft with long airframe hours life and short strip operational performance with huge loads... but when Australia got theirs they were told that the guaranteed airframe life does not count if you operate it from a short rough airstrip...

    I have been hearing this reviews from Intl Mag on Avaiation and others that PD-14 would be slightly less fuel effecient compared to 

     PW1400G, CFM LEAP-1 , Is this true ?



    The technology inside PD-14 does not make it as competitive as PW1400G or LEAP Engine ? 


    What is the technology growth available for PD-14 , its possible in future PW and LEAP engine will get more fuel effecient than PD-14 ?


    Can any one understanding Engine Technology can explain this ? The Bypass ratio of PD is much lower than PW and LEAP engine

    Even if it is not as fuel efficient, the PD-14 is part of a family of engines that cross a broad range of uses, that will be sanction proof for a lot of users who don't have good relations with the US in particular and the west in general.

    The amount of fuel being used is not critical for military users, but for civilian users it is important in terms of profitability...

    There are so many other factors however... If you look at the Il-76 using either D-30 engines or PS-90 engines... you can get a minor upgrade on the D30s to improve thrust and reduce fuel burn that results in an engine cost of 800K dollars US, but the PS-90 engines were 6 million dollars each... with four engines that means 3.2 million for the upgraded D-30s, but 24 million for the PS-90s... 20 million dollars buys you a lot of aviation fuel... it would take years for that to make any real difference to the costs of running the aircraft... especially if maintainence and spare parts are similarly priced... in fact unless you use those aircraft a lot you might never get to the point where the more expensive engines break even.

    Obviously if there is an increase in power that also improves performance, and improved reliability then an engine upgrade could be much more warranted, but it really does not come down to.... engine X burns 2% less fuel than engine Y.

    Another factor is... how well do they cope with the conditions where the planes will be operating... do they like minus 30 degree starts... or do you need to keep the engines running on the ground in a cold airfield... that will cost you more fuel and cold negate any fuel burn savings during the flight.

    At the end of the day the PD-14 is intended to get around sanctions on western equipment, so Russian domestic sales and sales to other countries also subject to US sanctions will likely go ahead whether it is better or slightly worse than western engines.

    Iranian carriers want to buy Sukhoi SSJ100 to renew their aging fleets

    Tehran - Iran needs 500 commercial planes, and is ready to purchase the Sukhoi Superjet SSJ100 if Russia agrees to sell, Reuters reports, citing top Iranian civil aviation leaders

    Iran is facing the task of renewing its aging commercial aircraft fleet. But the country is about to fail it due to ongoing US sanctions.

    In 2015, Trump administration withdrew from the nuclear agreement with Iran and reimposed sanctions. Last year, the US Treasury Department revoked the licenses of Boeing and Airbus to sell passenger aircraft to Iran.

    Most commercial airliners produced in the world include more than 10 percent U.S. parts. It is the threshold for U.S. Treasury approval.

    According to Russian officials, Sukhoi is working on reducing the usage of U.S. made components in the production of SSJ100 to be able to sell the aircraft to Iran.

    If the Iranian airlines want to use SSJ100 and the manufacturer agrees to sell it to Iran, the Civil Aviation Organization is ready to issue its final comment on this aircraft,
    Ali Abedzadeh, head of the Civil Aviation Organization, told Fars news agency.

    Iran Air, the national carrier of the country had ordered 200 passenger planes in 2016 -100 from Airbus (46 A320, 38 A330, 16 A350), 80 from Boeing (50 737 MAX 8, 15 777-300ER, 15 777-9) and 20 ATR 72-600 from Franco-Italian manufacturer ATR before U.S. licenses of these manufacturers were canceled.

    In addition to Iran Air, another Iranian operator Aseman Airlines had placed an order for 30 737 MAX.

    The airlines have proposals for aircraft purchases and we are trying to devise regulations that will ease their aircraft imports. Considering Iran’s vast market, we need 500 planes now,

    [ltr]Sukhoi, UAC Planning Superjet With No Western Content[/ltr]


    [ltr]by Vladimir Karnozov[/ltr]



    [ltr]Following a series of consultations with authorities, suppliers, and customers, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCAC) and its patron United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) have begun design work on a completely indigenous version of the Sukhoi Superjet regional jet. The companies have undertaken the development within the framework of a broader import substitution program ordered by the Kremlin.
    Although SCAC has yet to encounter sanctions-related prohibitions against receiving components made in the U.S. and EU, the tightening Western sanctions on Russia could one day lead to disruption of the established international cooperation on the project. Western content now accounts for between 55 percent and 60 percent of an SSJ100’s unit cost.
    So far, the Superjet program has proceeded uninterrupted despite the chill in the relations between Moscow and the West, which started with the civil war in Ukraine in late 2013 and further worsened with the annexation of Crimea in March 2014. Long-term agreements signed before the events remained in force, providing the manufacturer with an unbroken supply chain.
    The first serious test the program failed to pass involved the intended shipment of some 40 aircraft to Iranian airlines. At the 2017 Eurasia Airshow in Antalya, Turkey, SCAC signed letters of intent with Iran Airtours and Iran Asman airlines calling for deliveries from 2020 to 2023. At the time SCAC believed that by removing U.S. parts from the factory-standard SSJ100 and replacing them with Russian or European substitutes would remove the aircraft from the regulatory scope of the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). In particular, SCAC reported plans to replace the airplane’s U.S.-made inertial navigation, auxiliary power unit, and cabin interior.
    Over the course of the summer, a number of SCAC’s European partners informed the manufacturer that they will not risk losing U.S. market as a result of the White House’s possible retaliation for their non-compliance with President Donald Trump’s new policy toward Tehran.
    Having reconsidered the situation, Moscow has decided to proceed with the indigenization of the Superjet to a greater extent than initially planned. After 2021, when SCAC introduces a version of the airplane without U.S. parts known as the SSJ100R, the companyplans to pursue a version devoid of all Western components, according to sources within UAC.
    The Thales-integrated avionics package would give way to one from local manufacturer KRET. The airplane’s PowerJet SaM.146 engines would be replaced by the Aviadvigatel PD-9, effectively a scaled version of the PD-14 developed for the Irkut MC-21 narrowbody jetliner. Apart from indigenization, this, coupled with a new composite wing, would reduce fuel burn by between 5 percent and 8 percent.
    Nevertheless, creation of a completely indigenous Superjet represents a challenge, given the fact that the majority of the airplane’s onboard systems come from the West. In theory, SCAC could consider Chinese parts, but the People’s Republic produces few appropriate for installation in the Superjet.
    The SSJ100 first flew in 2008. Since entering commercial service in 2011, the type has logged more than 300,000 revenue flights lasting 460 hours. As of August 2016, 133 aircraft were in operation with eight airlines, as well as five governmental and business aviation organizations.
    Most recently, Aeroflot and UAC signed a preliminary agreement calling for the delivery of 100 Superjets from 2019 to 2026. The September 10 announcement made no mention of whether any of the deliveries would involve the SSJ100R or an all-Russian-content Superjet.

    Over the course of the summer, a number of SCAC’s European partners informed the manufacturer that they will not risk losing U.S. market as a result of the White House’s possible retaliation for their non-compliance with President Donald Trump’s new policy toward Tehran.

    Having reconsidered the situation, Moscow has decided to proceed with the indigenization of the Superjet to a greater extent than initially planned. After 2021, when SCAC introduces a version of the airplane without U.S. parts known as the SSJ100R, the companyplans to pursue a version devoid of all Western components, according to sources within UAC.

    The Thales-integrated avionics package would give way to one from local manufacturer KRET. The airplane’s PowerJet SaM.146 engines would be replaced by the Aviadvigatel PD-9, effectively a scaled version of the PD-14 developed for the Irkut MC-21 narrowbody jetliner. Apart from indigenization, this, coupled with a new composite wing, would reduce fuel burn by between 5 percent and 8 percent.

    Nevertheless, creation of a completely indigenous Superjet represents a challenge, given the fact that the majority of the airplane’s onboard systems come from the West. In theory, SCAC could consider Chinese parts, but the People’s Republic produces few appropriate for installation in the Superjet.

    The SSJ100 first flew in 2008. Since entering commercial service in 2011, the type has logged more than 300,000 revenue flights lasting 460 hours. As of August 2016, 133 aircraft were in operation with eight airlines, as well as five governmental and business aviation organizations.

    Most recently, Aeroflot and UAC signed a preliminary agreement calling for the delivery of 100 Superjets from 2019 to 2026. The September 10 announcement made no mention of whether any of the deliveries would involve the SSJ100R or an all-Russian-content Superjet.
