The following is based on a translation from a Chinese news site:
Mil.huanqiu.com says in its recent report on China’s the development of aircraft engines that AVIC (Aviation Industry Corporation of China) Turbine Institute has developed a derivative series of core prototypes since the beginning of this century.
Now, with abundant funds from the state, the institute has independently made quite a few new types of aircraft engines and conducted successful test flights of all of them.
No details of the engines are given in the report perhaps due to the classified nature of the information.
However, the report shows that China is confident that it will soon be able to make advanced aircraft engines on its own.
