Powerplant of Soviet mid-range transport aircraft.
A turboprop engine developed in the 1950s by a team supervised by Alexander Ivchenko. In production since 1961, the AI-24 was used as powerplant of the An-24 passenger and An-26 cargo aircraft. The TV variant intended for the An-26 has higher power output than the basic version thanks to the increase in both the engine pressure ratio and the mass flow.
