BENGALURU (India) (Sputnik) Indian customers are showing interest in the Russian PD-14 engines that could be used as the basis for the development of a family of engines for aircraft of various classes, a spokesperson for the United Engine Corporation (UEC) told Sputnik on Tuesday.

"UEC is ready to offer to Indian partners cooperation on the development of engines for various classes of aircraft on the basis of the PD-14 engine. A number of Indian customers have already expressed interest in the PD-14," the spokesperson said.

According to UEC, the corporation is holding talks with potential buyers of Russia's Irkut MC-21 aircraft about the delivery of these jets equipped with PD-14s.

The PD-14 program comprises a whole family of engines with a thrust on takeoff of between 9 and 18 tonnes, including the PD-14A, PD-14M, PD-10, and PD-18R, which could be mounted aboard the jets of different class. The overall maintenance of the engine finishing in-flight tests is expected to be up to 17 percent cheaper compared to the similar engines produced by foreign companies.
