Russian President Vladimir Putin is pushing for the speedy development of Russian engines for the country’s light aircraft which are currently supplied by the Czech Republic. Russia is already developing such an engine and according to the country’s industry and trade minister, Denis Manturov, it should be ready for production by 2016. Engines for Russia’s light aircraft are currently supplied by the Czech firm Prvni brnenska strojirna which last year raised its sales by 100 million crowns to a record 1.2 billion thanks to commissions from Russia.
