NOVOSIBIRSK, March 1. /TASS/. The trials of the second-stage engine for Russia’s fifth-generation PAK FA fighter jet will begin in 2018, the vice president of the United Aircraft Corporation, Sergei Korotkov, told reporters Wednesday.
"At the moment, works are being carried out within the framework of contacts with the Russian Defense Ministry. Flight tests are under way. We plan to enter the second stage of trials next year," he said.
