MOSCOW, July 14. /TASS/. Flight tests of the PD-14 engine for MS-21 aircraft will start in October, Chief Executive Officer of United Engine Corporation (UEC) Vladislav Masalov said on Tuesday.

The first tranche of the budget funds for the federal target program has already been transferred. "We expect the engine will be installed on the aircraft in August - September 2015," Masalov said.

"No grounds exist at present to believe that UEC will delay trials of MS-21 aircraft with PD-14 engines," he said.

The flight trials were supposed to start before June 30.
