The project of pilot production of PD-35 engines for long-haul wide-body airliners and military transport aviation was developed in Novosibirsk. The creation of such production will allow replacing engines that were previously manufactured in Ukraine, he told reporters on FridayIgor Bochkarev, Executive Director of SibproektNIIaviaprom JSC, who developed the project.

"This year we have completed the design of such an important facility as the pilot production of the PD-35 engine — this is the enterprise of UEC aircraft engines in the city of Perm. The project has passed the state examination, we hope its implementation will begin in the near future, because the PD-35 is a unique engine, which is currently not produced in Russia," he said.Igor Bochkarev.

He specified that the thrust of the PD-35 is about 35-40 tons, it will be used for wide-body long-haul airliners and military transport aviation. "That is, in fact, it will replace the engines that were previously produced in Ukraine by Motor Sich (an aircraft engine manufacturing company — approx. TASS)", — explainedIgor Bochkarev.

In December 2021, the Minister of Industry and TradeDenis Manturov reported that the production of PD-35 will be completed by the end of 2023. The Government of the Russian Federation allocated 44.6 billion rubles for its creation.

PD-35 (promising 35—ton thrust engine) is a project of a Russian two-circuit turbofan engine of ultra-high thrust (with a take-off thrust of 33 to 40 tons). The total investment in the PD-35 project amounted to 180 billion rubles. The head developer is UEC—Aviadvigatel, the head manufacturer is JSC UEC-Perm Motors. It is assumed that the engine will be installed on the Russian-Chinese CR929 aircraft and on the IL-96-400M.
