The funding for civilian projects by the United Engine Corporation (UEC) includes the production of PD-14 and SaM146 aircraft engines, TV3-117 and VK-2500 helicopter engines, as well as gas turbine energy units.

Russian Helicopter will receive funding for the delivery, repair and service support of helicopters such as Ka-62, Ka-32, Ka-226, Ansat, Mi-171А2, Mi-171, Mi-38 and other products of the civilian sector.

Anatoly Serdyukov, industrial director of Rostec’s Aviation Cluster, said: ‘The development of civil aviation, helicopter engineering, engine building is one of the key priorities of Rostec.

‘Products such as the PD-14 and VK-2500 engines, Ka-226 and Ansat helicopters, are not only strategically important for our country, but have high potential and interest in foreign markets. This is confirmed by numerous concluded agreements with China, countries of Southeast Asia, the Middle East and others.’

The projects support Rostec’s objectives to develop its civilian products, improve operational efficiency and gain access to global markets through to 2025.
