MOSCOW — The Russian MC-21-310 aircraft carried out its first flight with domestic-made PD-14 engines on Tuesday, Russia's state-owned Rostec Corporation said in a statement.
The flight of the modernized MC-21-310 airliner, built by Russian Irkut Corporation, took place at the airfield of the Irkutsk Aviation Plant and lasted 1 hour and 25 minutes, according to Rostec.

The mission of the flight was to conduct a functional check, inspect the aircraft's power unit as well as its stability and controllability.

"This flight is the result of the consolidation of two major Russian civil aviation projects: the MC-21 aircraft and the PD-14 engine," Rostec CEO Sergei Chemezov was quoted as saying.

"Owing to the efforts of scientists, designers, engineers, workers, we are able to create a new generation airliner, that brings our country back to the top league of global aviation," Chemezov added. Enditem
