Aviadvigatel suspends cooperation with Ukraine on PD-14 project


JSC “Aviadvigatel” (Perm region, part of “United Engine Building Corporation”) has suspended cooperation with the Zaporozhye Design Bureau to produce a PD-14 engine for MC-21 aircraft, the deputy chief designer and chief designer of the PD engine family Igor Maximov told the journalists.
“In the draft PD-14, we included two variants of the combustion chamber. The first was developed by “Aviadvigatel” and CIAM named after Baranov, the alternative – the development of the Zaporozhye Design Bureau. The project of Zaporozhye Design Bureau has been very promising. The combustion chamber showed good performance on tests. But, unfortunately, due to the complication of the political situation at the moment the project is suspended,” he said.
