Motor Sich in Dubai Air Show - 2017
Motor Sich JSC specializes in development, manufacture
and aftersales service of aircraft gas-turbine engines, industrial gas-turbine
drives, as well as gas-turbine generating sets powered by those drives. Over the
last years we have been developing the helicopter industry in Ukraine as well.
High quality and reliability of our aero-engines are proved by a many years’
experience of service on airplanes and helicopters in more than 100 countries
Our representative office in Sharjah ensures a prompt solution of questions
regarding cooperation with other companies in the United Arab Emirates. One of
the company’s success criteria is participation in international air shows.
Motor Sich JSC participates on a regular basis in airshows in the UAE, France,
Germany, Great Britain, India, China, Russia, etc.
Our company is a permanent and active participant of the Dubai Airshow.
At present, the list of our engines in serial production and those under
development for utility aircraft covers turboprop, turbofan and turboshaft
engines with a power range from 400 to 14,000 h.p., as well as bypass turbojet
engines with a thrust range from 400 to 23,400 kgf.
Among all the engines, one should emphasize the D-436-148 engine for An-148
passenger airplanes. This engine complies with ICAO requirements and its
performance is as good as that of foreign engines.
The An-148 airplane in different versions ensures carriage of 68 to 89
passengers for 2.1 to 4.4 thousand km with a high level of comfort. The airplane
performance and engine elevation above the runway provide for possibility of
operation from unpaved airfields, while its low life cost makes it attractable
for various airlines worldwide. After mid-2013, a hundred of An-158 airplanes,
local versions of the An-148 airplane, have entered service in the Republic of
Motor Sich JSC´s and Ivchenko-Progress SE´s specialists have developed the
D-436-148FÌ engine for the Àn-178 cargo airplane with a load-carrying capacity
of 16 to 18 tons intended for replacement of the vintage An-12 cargo airplane.
The D-436-148FÌ engine is a D-436-148 engine version with a takeoff thrust of
7900 kgf and a maximum contingency thrust of 8790 kgf, which were increased
thanks to new and more efficient components.
First of all, this is a next-generation wide chord fan with new solutions for
better efficiency, higher thrust and less noise. Along with performance
improvement of engine main components this will enhance airplane performance
significantly as well.
Currently, our company cooperates with Ivchenko-Progress SE in development of
next-generation AI-28 bypass engines with a design thrust of 7 to 10 tons. The
basic engine of that family is being developed based on advanced and
cutting-edge technologies and will feature a fan reduction drive and a superhigh
bypass ratio. This engine is designed for powering advanced passenger and cargo
aircraft. On basis of its gas generator we can develop turboprop and turboshaft
engines with high performance.
Our company has developed the D-18T Series 3 engine to improve efficiency and
reduce exhaust emissions and noise of the Àn-124-100 airplane that has the
highest load-carrying capacity among other airplanes with a cargo ramp in the
Among all the basic differences of that engine are the following: the takeoff
thrust is flat rated up to +30°C, reduction of the noise level by 10 EPN dB and
exhaust emissions to satisfy ICAO requirements. Besides, we have also
implemented new solutions for extending total service life up to 50,000 hours,
modernized the thrust reverser control system, and equipped the engine with the
automated electronic control.
At present, more than three thousand Czech L-39 and Chinese K-8J trainer
aircraft powered by gas-turbine engines of our company operate in 45 countries
Continuing this tradition, we cooperate with Ivchenko-Progress SE in development
of ÀI-222 engine versions. They can provide a maximum thrust of 2,500 to 3,000
kgf and with the afterburner installed - up to 5,000 kgf.
The ÀI-222K-25 (without afterburner) and the ÀI-322F (with afterburner) engine
versions are designed for powering L-15AJT subsonic trainers and L-15 LIFT
supersonic fighter trainers produced by Chinese Hongdu Aviation Industrial
At present, the L-15 LIFT aircraft and the engine are passing flight tests,
while L-15AJT aircraft have already started to come into service with the
Chinese Air Force. At the same time we continue work on ÀI-450Ñ è ÀI-450Ñ-2
turboprop engine versions with a takeoff power of 450 to 495 and 630 to 750 h.p.,
respectively. These engines are designed for utility aircraft and trainers,
including aerobatic aircraft (ÀI-450ÑÐ and ÀI-450ÑÐ-2 engine versions). In 2016,
the ÀI-450Ñ engine has successfully passed flight tests on the DA50-JP7 airplane
produced by DIAMOND AI, world-famous Austrian company.
In 2017, ÀI-450Ñ engine versions, such as ÀI-450ÑÌ and ÀI-450ÑD, have received
At the time being, DIAMOND AI is also working on construction of the DART-450
trainer powered by the ÀI-450CÐ engine. The first official debut of that
aircraft took place in the Farnborough Airshow-2016 and it arose great interest
among all the specialists. The ÀI-450Ñ-2 and the ÀI-450ÑÐ-2 engines are designed
for utility airplanes, commuter passenger airplanes and trainers, including
The ÌS-14 engine is designed to replace veteran engines on An-2 airplanes.
Flight tests of the An-2-100 airplane powered by the MS-14 engine, which were
conducted by Antonov SE, clearly show that this new engine has provided for
significant improvement of the airplane performance.
Our company is a world leader in production of engines and helicopters. It all
started in 1947 with production of the ÀI-26 piston engine for the indigenous
series-produced Mi-1 helicopter. At present, we offer a wide range of helicopter
engines, including the most powerful D-136 turboshaft engine for the Ìi-26
helicopter with the highest load-carrying capacity in the world.
For example, our company has produced more than 30 thousand engines of just
ÒV3-117/ÒV3-117V family and still continues with their further improvement.
To further enhance the helicopter performance and efficiency at high altitudes
and temperatures, Motor Sich JSC has developed the ÒV3-117VÌÀ-SBÌ1V engine with
total life of 12,000 hours and first overhaul life of 5,000 hours.
Engine power ratings fit for operation on different helicopter types. The engine
automatic control system (ACS) allows setting one of the following take-off
power ratings: 2,500, 2,400, 2,200 or 2,000 h.p. and maintains it to higher
altitudes and ambient temperatures as compared to current ÒVÇ-117V engine
versions and the VK-2500 engine installed on Mil and Kamov helicopters.
On basis of the ÒV3-117VÌÀ-SBÌ1V engine Motor Sich JSC has created the
ÒV3-117VÌÀ-SBÌ1V-02KS version with the power specifically adjusted for Ka-32
helicopters to improve their customer appeal and competitiveness. At the end of
2015 that version received the Type Certificate from IAC AR and in 2016 – the
First overhaul life of the ÒV3-117VÌÀ-SBÌ1V-02K engine if transporting external
loads is 3,320 hours without replacement of engine hot section parts while in
service, which is 4 times greater than that of the ÒV3-117VÌÀ(VÌÀ Series 02)
engine hot section.
Nowadays, our company advances its helicopter production program. We have
established our own Design Bureau that is certified by the Ukrainian Aviation
Administration and comprises 300 specialists.
Motor Sich JSC’s helicopter production facilities comprise machining and
assembly workshops with cutting-edge equipment, the paint shop, the flight test
center, and the center for training of aircrews and maintenance personnel. The
flight test center features a multi-purpose full-size bench for testing
helicopter airframe elements and systems as well as other types of ground
At present time, our company is also engaged in development, manufacture and
overhaul of helicopter gearboxes. We have mastered and obtained authorization
for overhaul of VR-8À and VR-14 main gearboxes for Mi-8 and Mi-17 helicopters.
Moreover, we also continue with development of the VR-17MS main gearbox, which
is a VR-14 gearbox version, for Mi-17 helicopters with a takeoff weight
increased up to 14 tons and the VR-442 main gearbox for the ÌSB-2 helicopter.
These projects allow performing in-house overhaul of Mi-2, Mi-8 and Mi-17
helicopters along with re-engining and modernization of onboard systems.
The Mi-8MSB medium lift utility helicopter with a maximum takeoff weight of
12,500 kg became the first implemented project of the helicopter program. The
helicopter power plant consists of two ÒV3-117VÌÀ-SBÌ1V Series 4Å gas-turbine
engines with electrical starting system. The Mi-8MSB helicopter offers the
following advantages: increase of the service ceiling by 62% (7,300 m);
reduction of the fuel consumption per hour by 14%, which increases the flying
range (1210 km with two additional fuel tanks); increase of engine total life
and TBO, which reduces their operating costs; engine flat rating in the whole
operating range of temperatures and altitudes.
The Mi-8MSB helicopter has already proved to be a better solution for aerial
operations at high altitudes. An excellent altitude performance of
ÒV3-117VÌÀ-SBÌ1V Series 4Å engines provides for possibility of operation from
airfields at an altitude of 4200 m. Our helicopters are also fitted up with
modern navigation equipment that complies with EASA and ICAO requirements.
The helicopter program also includes the development and manufacture of light
helicopters. The Mi-2 helicopter powered by AI-450M-B engines with a takeoff
power of 430 h.p. and ÐÄÖ-450 digital governors came to be the first certified
light helicopter. This helicopter offers the following advantages: reduction of
the fuel consumption per hour by 30%, increase of the flying range with
additional fuel tanks by 40%, increase of the service ceiling up to 5,000 m. The
cockpit instrument panel is fitted with digital engine parameter indicators and
provides for possibility of converting it into a fully digital panel. The
helicopter structure employs new light and high-strength composite materials.
Thanks to possibility of installing a wide range of external and internal
accessories, the helicopter can implement various missions. We offer this
helicopter model in the following versions: cargo-passenger (rear compartment
with a higher level of comfort), search and rescue (with fire extinguisher
system, if requested), agricultural (with spaying system), patrol (with aerial
monitoring instruments); training (with dual control). Thanks to a remarkable
altitude performance this helicopter comes to be an excellent choice for
countries with a mountainous terrain. The Mi-2 helicopter powered by AI-450M-B
engines holds the Supplemental Type Certificate No. ÄÒÂ0106 issued by the
Ukrainian State Aviation Administration.
One of the platforms developed by our company recently is the MSB-2 light
utility helicopter, which resembles to some extent the Mi-2 helicopter. This
model features more powerful ÀI-450Ì-P engines (465 h.p. each) and a new
transmission system, which ensures a reliable transfer of the increased power.
The MSB-2 helicopter offers the following advantages: spacious rear compartment;
advanced fuel measuring system; external fuel tanks; rear compartment doors with
automatic drive; “glass cockpit”; air conditioning system; perfect aerodynamic
The MSB-2 helicopter features a fuselage nose from composite materials and
offers more space for avionics. The helicopter comes with digital avionics that
provides for day and night flights in VFR and IFR conditions. The form of the
fuselage nose and external fuel tanks was developed based on the test results in
the aerodynamic air tunnel. Excellent design features of that helicopter make it
perfect for passenger transportation, search and rescue operations and medivac.
Besides, the MSB-2 helicopter offers the following advantages: reduction of the
fuel consumption per hour by 30%, increase of the cruise speed by 11%, increase
of the rear compartment space by 1m3; increase of the service ceiling by 25%;
big cockpit windows.
At the time being, Motor Sich JSC is assembling the first flying prototype of
the MSB-2 helicopter and preparing its airframe for static tests. A full-scale
mockup of that helicopter has already been demonstrated at several air shows and
Currently, our company is focusing on expanding the production and marketing,
which will make it highly competitive in the aviation industry. Motor Sich JSC
has always been a reliable partner and ready for cooperation with all interested
