Who Supplies Engines For Russian/Ukraine Aircraft?

Sat Dec 08, 2007 2:36 pm

Which engine suppliers supply engines for Russian or Ukrainian commercial aircraft? Do some of them have western engines such as GE,RR,PW? If not, how do they compare to western engines ? Is it possible we that we might see a merger or joint venture of a Russian engine supplier with a western manufactuer? Thanks

I know some Tu204s have RB211s made by Rolls-Royce... not sure about the others

The Il-96 is at least available with PW2000s not sure if any actually exist.

Your main maufacturors of engines for Russian aircraft are Kuznetsov and Soloviev. The Soloviev D-30 being a popular choice (Tu-154, Il-62, Il-76, Tu-134) though it's old now.

Quoting JAM747 (Thread starter):

As said above, there's Kuznetsov and Soloviev. Let me mention a few others: Lotarev, Perm, Aviadvigatel, Motorsich, Klimov, Ivchenko Progress, Motorstroitel, Mikulin, NPO Saturn.

However, some of these companies don't exist anymore, and some were/are only design bureaus, not actual manufacturers.

The new engines are getting better and better. The Russians/Ukrainians/Soviets have managed to create some designs that are unique, for example the NK-93 ducted propfan. This engine has a specific fuel burn similar to the GENx and Trent 1000, but its design is more than 10 years old!

There is already a joint-venture. Snecma and NPO Saturn have joined their forces to build the engine for the SSJ100. It has just started flight tests.
Exceptions confirm the rule.

Thank you, I wonder if we will ever see a Russian manufacturer like this compete with GE, RR PW with engines for large jets from Boeing Airbus etc.
