A. Inozemtsev: the PD-35 project does not stop, it will be shifted for a couple of years12.02.2022.
Completion of the development of a high-power engine for civil aviation PD-35 is shifted by at least two years due to an increase in the production of PD-14, PD-8 and PS-90A engines. About itinformsTASS with reference to the Managing Director - General Designer of UEC-Aviadvigatel JSC Alexander Inozemtsev.
“According to PD-35, we had planned deadlines until 2027-2028. Now, due to all the events, [the deadlines] are being shifted a couple of years to the right, because the funds have now been redistributed to increase the volumes of PD-14, PD-8, PS-90A. This is a forced measure, but nothing stops,” he said on the sidelines of the Perm Engineering and Industrial Forum.
Earlier, Alexander Inozemtsev already spoke about the postponement of the PD-35 engine. “The PD-35 project will go a little slower, with a shift to the right for two or three years, because gigantic money is needed. Without a doubt, we will assemble and test a demonstrator engine by 2024, no matter how hard it is. And then let's move on to the situation. But we will understand for sure, having assembled the engine, where we are in terms of technology, we are creating technologies for the long-haul aircraft market, ”he said on August 18 during the Army-2022 forum. Alexander Inozemtsev added that the main forces will now be applied to replicate the PD-14 and PS-90A engines.
On June 27, the government approved a new program for the development of the aviation industry until 2030. More than 770 billion rubles will be allocated for its implementation.

Of these, 142 SSJ-New aircraft, 270 MS-21-310 aircraft, 140 Ladoga TVRS-44 aircraft, 70 Il-114-300 aircraft, 178 L-410 and 154 "Baikal" (LMS-901). Deliveries of new helicopters will amount to 764 machines. It is assumed that all this equipment will fly on domestic engines. According to the program, over the next eight years, 4964 aircraft engines of various modifications will be made in Russia.
