    ITAR-TASS The Russian-built AL-55I engine for the Indian HJT-36 trainer aircraft has demonstrated a strong performance, Ilya Fedorov, Managing Director of NPO Saturn, the developer of the engine, told ITAR-TASS.
    .
    “The HJT-36 developed by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is a reliable aircraft, is India’s
    national pride. It is the first aircraft made by
    Indians. The basic parameters of the engine meet the customer’s requirements and it flies well.
    There have been no engine-related accidents or problems, so we are also proud of it. We have executed two contracts; research and development work has been completed. Four engines have been delivered to India and will soon be installed in aircraft”, Fedorov said.
    The engine was developed and built in a record time of only three years. As part of the contract with HAL, research is now under way with a view to increasing the service life of the AL-55I to 300 hours. A new batch of 10 engines is currently in production – these engines were contracted to be delivered in 2011–2012.
    “It is no secret that the contract will be continued”, the Saturn head told ITAR-TASS.
