Russian TV3-117 and VK-2500 Helicopter engines, which have been re-engineered to substitute foreign component with locally-made ones, have come in compliance with Indonesian aviation regulations.

Some 30 Mi and Ka type helicopters which use the TV3-117 and VK-2500 engines are in operation in Indonesia. Meeting Indonesian aviation regulators' standards will enable the aircraft to continue to operate without a hitch.

"The validation procedure will expand partnerships with Indonesia both in terms of supplying engines for modern models of civilian helicopters entering the park of the republic, and as part of the maintenance of equipment already in operation in the country," UEC stated the director of the VK-2500, TV3-117 program - chief designer of JSC "UEC-Klimov" Evgeny Prodanov as saying on their website.

In 2015, the UEC, in broad cooperation,reportedly launched the serial production of the VK-2500 entirely from Russian components. The cooperation for the production of these engines includes about 40 enterprises of UEC JSC, as well as machine-building enterprises of small and medium-sized businesses. JSC UEC-Klimov annually produces more than 300 TV3-117 and VK-2500 engines of various models and modifications.  In 2021, the main change was approved for the new VK-2500PS-02 engine with an assigned resource of 7500/7500 hours/cycles. Serial production of the engine and its delivery to operation in the interests of civil aviation and for export are allowed, the press service informs.
