Russia's United Engine Corporation has reached an initial delivery agreement for Aviadvigatel PD-14 powerplants to Ilyushin Finance.

The engines are being developed for the Irkut MC-21-300, as an alternative to the Pratt & Whitney PW1400G.

Ilyushin Finance, which disclosed the agreement during the MAKS air show in Moscow, says the agreement is intended to provide engines for four of the MC-21s due to be leased to Red Wings.

It says that, under the deal with UEC's Perm Motors arm, the engines must be delivered over the course of 2022-23.
