"Zaporozhye Machine-Building Design Bureau" Progress "named after acad. Ivchenko AG "- state-owned enterprise, which is a member state holding Ukroboronprom. In the area of ​​the company includes manufacturing, designing, debugging, testing, production to serial production, certification and naladkagazoturbinnyh engines used in the aircraft industry.

The high level of development of design of aircraft engines of the state enterprise "Ivchenko-Progress" confirmed by certificates Gosudarstvyennoy Aviation Service of Ukraine, Bureau Veritas and Register of Interstate Aviation Committee of the Commonwealth of Independent States. As of the year 2013 aircraft engines developed by the state enterprise "Ivchenko-Progress", on ispolzovyalis 59 types of aircraft and helicopters in 122 the world.

As of the year 2012 the total time of all the engines fired plant, it amounted to more than two million one hundred thousand hours. History 05.05.1945 factory according to the order number 193 the People's Commissar of Aviation Industry Soviet union Shakhurin A. AND. factory number 478 was established Experimental Design Bureau on designing new and ulusheniyu previously created other engines of small and medium power for the needs of civil aviation. Head of the Experimental Design Bureau was taken cadre designer Alexander G. Ivchenko plant became chief designer of the company in the year 1963.

The basis of the new collective research and design office were experienced professionals engine plant, who have been excellent finishing school and the creation of aircraft engines from the M-11 to AL-82FN and M-88B. In 1966, the company was renamed the Design Office (Zaporozhye Machine-Building Design Bureau) "Progress". Since 1994 year Title Design Office "Progress" added to the name of its first director Academician Ivchenko A. G. . Current products Piston engines AI-26GR / M 26GR In 1946, in experimental design bureau was created gelikopterny gearmotor M 26GR power 500 horsepower.

It was the first piston engine in the world with the system of air cooling, especially being used for helicopters. The engine was given the index "AI" (Alexander Ivchenko) - AI-26GR. The prototype AI-26GR and its variations: AI-26GRF power 550 horsepower, AI-26GRFL having power 575 horsepower installed on helicopters B-5, F-4, B-10, B-9, B-11 Bratukhina And . PI Yak-100 Yakovleva C. . Total produced about 1300 motoroa for AI-26. Many of the first Soviet serial helicopters supplied and experienced helicopter piston engines, which have been designed precisely in the Zaporozhye Experimental Design Bureau-478. With AI-10 1947, in the Experimental Design Bureau began development work on manufacturing a light engine AI-10, 80 having power in horsepower. (Five star cylinder air-cooling system) for the Yak-20 (training and sports aircraft).

It was built only two experienced aircraft instance. AI-4V (AI-4G) In 1948 was developed AI-4G having power 55loshadinyh force for Ka-10korabelnyh helicopters, observation and communication. Engines produced in small batches. AI-14 unique engine created in the same year. His option for aircraft AI-14R - nine cylinder star air cooling system with gear and power 265 supercharged horsepower mounted on a different variation of the Yak-Yak-18 and 12. The aircraft had a training-educational and military applications, as standard they produced more than twelve thousand in the Soviet Union, China, Poland.

Also this engine is installed, and the An-14 «Bee» (aircraft short takeoff and landing). Under the brand name M-14 and date engines for AI-14 type used in flight-sporting, administrative, light training-educational and agricultural planes Experimental Design Bureau im.Yakovleva A. S. and experimental design bureau to them. Dry P. O., and it is used in many countries around the world. Variations AI-14V having a capacity of up to 255 280 horsepower installed on Ka-Ka-18 and 15 (multipurpose shipboard helicopters Kamov production). Total produced 465 helicopters. AI-26V most fruitful collaboration was with the Design Bureau Mile M. L. .

In a rather short period of time it has been created and tested Mi-1 (helicopter with engine AI-26V having power 575loshadinyh forces), developed in the year 1953. In the helicopter there were more than a dozen variations, and it is widely used in both civil and military aviation. They are made in two countries: Poland and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the total number of two thousand seven hundred copies. Gas turbine engines TC-12 1953 years With Experimental Design Bureau begins to actively creation of gas turbine engines. Debut work in this area was the development of TC-12 powerful turbine starter project for the theater (turboprop) NK-12, which was designed at the State union pilot plant number 276 led by Kuznetsova D.

These engines were equipped with passenger aircraft Tu-114 and military aircraft An-22, Tu-126, Tu-95, Tu-142. TV 2T In order to gain experience in designing and fine-tuning of the gas turbine engines Experimental Design Bureau Kuznetsova N. AD was transferred to sample theater TV 2F and documentation for its construction. In 1954 was based on it in the Experimental Design Bureau created a variation TV 2T maximum, having the power to horsepower 6250-8 AN-U transport aircraft prototype. Produced pilot batch number seven engines. In 1955 year the company developed another variation - TV 2VK having power 5900 horsepower with a unique gear to drive the traction and lifting screws of the largest in the world Ka-22 designing rotorcraft N. Kamov AND. .

International flight altitude and speed records are set in this rotary-wing pilot. The engines were placed on the first working copy of the Ka-22. The AI-20 1957, the single-shaft TMD AI-20proshёl successfully state tests. The design of the engine is simple, inexpensive to manufacture and tech with high reliability operation. This is the first gas turbine engine of domestic production with such a great resource. For a long time its variations AI-20A (four series), AI-20D (five episodes), AI-20M, AI-20K a capacity of up to 4000 5250 horsepower successfully used in passenger aircraft IL-18, An-10, and aircraft of the Air Force - IL-20, An-8, IL-22.

They still continue to be used on the AN-12, An-32, Be-12, IL-38. During use in the AI-20M reached record TBO 8000 hours designated - 22000 hours. Total produced about fourteen thousand AI-20 all variations. The AI-7 1957 year to pilot the Mi-7 (In-7) specially created TRD with the AI-7 60 kilogram limit traction / Force. At the ends of a two-blade rotor equipped with two engine and propeller spun by means of a jet thrust.

In 1959, work on the construction of the AI-7 stopped because that was all closed in the topic of helicopter-7. The AI-24 1958, the theater has developed AI-24, 2550 having capacity of horsepower., At the base of which was taken of experience in designing theater AI-20 and used progressive method of design simulation. Its variations are operated on the AN-24 (passenger aircraft) and An-26, An-30 (special purpose). Total produced 11 750 such engines. AI-25 Since early 1960-ies Experimental Design Bureau has been developing turbofan engines.

The twin-turbofan AI-25, 1500 has ultimate traction kilogram / force to Yak-40 (passenger aircraft) was built in the year 1965. It was also used in the Polish M-15 (agricultural plane). 6325 engines commercially released. For Czech TCB produced L-39 1973 in was established variation AI-25TL with the utmost traction 1720 kilogram / force. The engine is based on AI-25 turbofan engines with an exhaust pipe lengthened constantly cooled HPT rotor blades and oil system, which makes stable operation of bearings even when the plane is flying inverted.
