The first Russian-built PD-14 engine has already arrived at Irkutsk Aviation Plant to be installed on the Russian-built aircraft – MC-21-300.

After the installation is completed, the aircraft is set to begin flight tests. The schedule, however, is yet to be agreed by both the United Aircraft Corporation and United Engine Corporation.

According to Russian media, the first flight of the MC-21 powered by newly-produced engines will take off this year.
