The goal is to design a modern, reliable, lightweight, inexpensive and cost-efficient engine. The VK-800V is based on a well-known model involving a centrifugal compressor and uncooled single-stage turbines. This simple design will cut production and maintenance costs, while the excellent performance of individual components will translate into remarkable cost-effectiveness.
The VK-800 project involves the development of a turboprop model (VK-800S) for multi-purpose aircraft with 1000-1500 kg payload capacity.
- To be installed on Ansat, Mi-54, Ka-126, Ka-226 and other helicopters.
- Certification is expected in 2008
- Power class – 500-800 hp
