It is not enough to test it, it has to be practically applied into service. This kind of engine(super high by-pass prop fan) could be put into service with a new IL-76(-93?) aircraft, to increase their range, efficiency, and cargo capacity. Also I imagine it could be used on the new IL-96-400(493?) wide body airliner to increase range. It has a higher thrust capacity right now than any Russian built engine of this size. But the key is, it needs to be put into production.

This is a propfan, not a fanjet, so yes it is a near 100% bypass like a turboprop. It has been in research and development since the 1980s and a working model has been run since the early 1990s, so it's not exactly new.

High Bypass? It appears all Bypass here :) But remember that Russians are Top notch in Analytical Mathematics & turning it in Reality
