Description: The PD-14, formerly known as the PS-12 and/or PS-14, is a fifth generation civil turbofan engine being developed by Aviadvigatel Perm Motors, a part of United Engine Corporation (UEC), to be one of the alternative power plants to power the MS-21 twin-jet passenger aircraft family. The PD-14 designation was announced in early 2010 with its development cost estimated at 35 billion Russian Rubles ($1.1 billion at that time). By mid-2012 the developmental cost estimation has increased to 70 billion Rubles. The PD-14 program is expected to deliver an engine family ranging from 9 to 18 tons of thrust. The PD-14A intended to power the MS-21 will developed 14 tons of thrust per engine at takeoff. The MS-21 airliner equipped with PD-14 engines may enter revenue service by 2017 with the engine to receive certification in 2015.
The PD-14 is based on classic double-flow scheme without mixing of internal and external flows and that results in 12 to 16 percent fuel economy, hazardous emission (by 30 to 45 percent lower than CAEP 6) and noise level reduction. Noise requirements will be satisfied with installation of a new second generation noise reduction system and a new fan. The first PD-14 engine demonstrator was assembled by a variety of companies part of the UEC on May 30, 2012, and is expected to begin testing in the second half of 2012. In June 2012, Russian Technologies became the launch customer for the PD-14A engine designed to power 35 MS-21 airliners.
