Russia, China partner for PD-35 engine

13 December 2017

Russia’s Rostec State Corporation will jointly develop the PD-35 aircraft engine with China. Confirmed at the Gulf Defense & Aerospace 2017 exhibition in Kuwait City, the announcement also provided details on the facilities tasked with development of the engine.

Work on the engine – which is expected to develop up to 35 tons of thrust – began at the United Engine Company (UEC)’s Perm Engines and Saturn (Rybinsk) plants in the summer of 2016. While China’s AECC Commercial Aircraft Engine Company (AECC CAEC) will contribute work to the gas-turbine engine, the majority of development work will be undertaken by the two Russian plants.
