Petersburg aircraft designers first showed the newest aircraft engine, developed for advanced military aircraft. The model is in all respects superior to existing analogues.
The engine TV7-117п?п? designed for light military transport aircraft Il-112V. By 2020 it should replace An-26 and the previous An-24, which is no longer produced and repaired at the Kiev aviation plant. this is the point in cooperation with the Ukrainian aircraft factory, or rather, complete independence. In a few years, when production of the new engines of the St. Petersburg plant "Klimov" will be on stream, the flight resource of the An-26 will be exhausted. He will be replaced by a light aircraft with fantastic capabilities. Their power is developed in Russia. The task was to create maximum power in minimum size and weight. Norms of work - thousands of hours and tens of years. Now we can say that these tasks are performed. The plane outstanding performance and power efficiency in their class - 3600 horsepower, and fuel consumption is less than 200 grams per horsepower. It figures that amaze everyone, but not the designers of the plant "Klimov", which created the engine.
The Il-112V is required to transport and air drop military equipment and personnel. It can take off from short strips and land on the ground. To start and test the engine TV7-117п?п? was specially built a new stand. Another innovation: the concrete walls absorb the sound of the engine out, but breaking so that his strength did not cause harm to anyone. Space reasons in the design of stand was specially created as a kind of art object. But what is inside a treasure design ideas, victory engineers of the St. Petersburg plant.
