for helicopter


Installed in the AVIC AC352 helicopter, the WZ16 is the first jointly-developed aero engine to be entirely certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). Low operating cost At least 10% better fuel consumption than engines operating in the same power range Certified by EASA and CAAC Also known as the Ardiden 3C, the WZ16 has been jointly developed and built by Safran Helicopter Engines, with Harbin Dongan Engine and Hunan Aerospace Propulsion Research Institute (HAPRI), both parts of the Aero Engine Corporation of China (AECC) consortium. The WZ16/Ardiden 3C is a member of Ardiden 3 family that has completed over 10,000 hours of tests, confirming high levels of design maturity and competitive operating and maintenance costs. It features a remarkably compact modular architecture, a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio and low cost-of-ownership. The WZ16 flight test campaign started in December 2016 with the Avic AC352’s maiden flight.
