PBS has been developing and supplying small turbine drive units for the aerospace industry for half a century. The company celebrated the 20th anniversary of cooperation with the manufacturers of Mil helicopters. PBS mainly supplies the Safir 5K/G MI auxiliary power unit (APU), which triggers the main engines of a significant number of Mi-17 helicopters. PBS continually works on modifications of existing products, but the company also develops other devices for new types of helicopters as well as jet aircraft and UAVs.
20 years of cooperation with Mil
PBS has implemented thousands of APUs in total. Last year, the company celebrated the 20th anniversary of cooperation with the manufacturers of Mil helicopters for which it developed the Safir 5K/G MI APU. This APU has been designed for Russian Mi-8, Mi-17 and Mi-171 helicopters, which are among the most successful helicopters in the world in terms of both the number of units sold and the number of countries in which they fly. You can find the Mi-17 in more than 60 countries, including the Indian Air Force.
Products for helicopters and jet aircraft
PBS APUs are especially suitable for civil and military helicopters, training and light combat planes, and business jet planes. Applications in ground military forces or marine applications are also feasible. They are incorporated into various configurations not only in several types of helicopters, but also in training and combat planes. Currently, PBS is following up on previous cooperation with the development and supply of several systems for the new generation of this aircraft, designated for example as Czech aircraft as L-39NG, L-159 and others. This includes the environmental control system, some fuel system instruments, the EMG-200 starter generator, and other devices.
PBS corporation is the world’s well-known turbojet engine supplier. The very high quality and reliability of PBS jet engines are reflected in the fact they have been installed in over 1,300 aircraft worldwide. With certification to the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) standards, their quality makes them stand out from competing engines in their category. Due to their reliability and weight-to-thrust ratio are suitable for use in the military industry and any UAV and UCAS projects. The worldwide recognized turbojet engine PBS TJ100 belongs to the 4th generation of this type of engine and PBS INDIA supplies the complete range of these engines throughout India.
Development and innovations
PBS continuously invests in development and has high-quality technical support and development and testing capacities available. The latest addition to the PBS turbojet engine family is TJ100P - an oil-free version of the famous PBS TJ100 engine. The company continually extends the time limits of overhauls for the Safir 5K/G MI, thus increasing its competitiveness.
The Mil Mi-171A2 has attained certification in India of the type for civilian use issued by the Civil Aviation Authority of India and PBS CS-M1V environmental control system for the new type of Mi-171A2 helicopter is another example of successful development. This system can heat and cool simultaneously, not only in the cockpit, but also in the cargo space of the helicopter.
