    Thanks, quite interesting.

    If they had to supple PD14 engines also to the chinese C919 they would need for sure a second assembly, facility, possibly in another of the UEC branches (e.g Ribinsk, Omsk, Salyut outside Moscow,.etc) or a brand new one (maybe even building one in the former territory of Saratov aviation plant) and see if the suppliers could cope with the increased production rate...

    But it will bring anyway benefits on the long term, especially if the new assembly plant could also be used later for the larger PD24 and PD35 engines

    I was thinking, maybe this fall of the aviation business due to the coronavirus will also cause some of the orders for foreign planes in Russia to be cancelled or postponed. And in the meanwhile, for some of them, the serial production of Russian alternatives will be ready.

    E.g. apart the obvious mc21 coverning the needs for a320 amd b737, maybe also some of the orders for widebodies a330, a350 and boeing 787 could be converted in il96-400M and partially also by an extended range version of the narrow body MC-21-400...

    In addition, the fleet expansions for the widebodies could wait until a real domestic alternative emerge (twin engine derivative of il-96 and CR929)

    When the world gives you lemons... make lemonade....

    Make the best of a bad situation and turn it to your advantage... sounds like a good plan to me.
