AIRCRAFT engine WZ16, a type of turboshaft engine jointly developed by Chinese and French aviation companies in Tianjin, has received a certificate from the Civil Aviation Administration of China, according to its developer.

The engine, jointly developed by the Aero Engine Corporation of China and French aviation giant Safran, has a takeoff power of no less than 1,240 kW, reports Xinhua.



It can be fitted into a seven-tonne twin-engine helicopter. It is characterised by high reliability, low-cost maintenance and has reached the level of advanced international civilian engines.



The engine will also help ensure the safe operation of the AC352 helicopter, China's first seven-tonne multipurpose twin-engine helicopter.



It will further support China's development of civil aviation engines and civilian helicopters, said the report. It also shows that Sino-French cooperation in the aviation industry has borne fruitful results.
