ZHUKOVSKY, Moscow Region, August 30 (Itar-Tass) - Certification of the new-generation PD-14engine, intended for the MS-21 airliner, is scheduled for 2015 in line with the Russian norms of airworthiness and for 2017 according to European ones, Igor Maximov, chief designer of the engine, told journalists at the MAKS aerospace show.
Maximov said, "An application for a certification of the engine has been filed this year with the Aviaregister of the Interstate Aviation Committee (AR MAK). A brassboard engine model commission is to meet at the end of this year. Following that, we shall work via the AR MAK to reach out to certification of the engine according to the European norms of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA)".
The engine has competitive characteristics as compared with those of the world's best analogues that are under development. In particular, the specific consumption of fuel of the PD-14 will be 12-14% less than that of the engines of A320 and Boeing-737.
The PD-14 will be up to the present-day and prospective ecological requirements of ICAO, including those regarding noise level and harmful emissions into the atmosphere, and will be 15 percent cheaper in operation as compared with the Western-made engines CFM56 and V2500 which are in the highest demand, Maximov pointed out.
