    Most of those engines are helicopter and turboprop engines. China appears ready to ramp up production of civilian helicopters and transports. The AL-222 is lone jet engine used in the new L-15 advanced trainer and UAV’s.
    It is a huge deal for Ukraine. The loser will be Canadian helicopter engine maker which lost out in one of the largest opportunity of this kind because the US prevented Canada from exporting technology to China.
