Description: The AI-222 is a high thrust-to-weight ratio turbofan engine family developed to power the Russian Air Force advanced trainers and light combat aircraft. The AI-222-25 engine developed to power the Yak-130 trainer is the basis for the AI-222 engine family. The AI-222-25 engine features modular design and FADEC. The engine entered service in 2006 powering the Russian Air Force Yak-130 trainer.

Ivchenko-Progress, Salut MMPP and Motor Sich are developing further versions to meet future requirements. The AI-222-25UVT is a version fitted with a vectoring nozzle to improve the flight performance and takeoff and landing operations. The AI-222-28 is a version equipped with an improved turbine cooling system providing higher takeoff thrust of approx. 2,800+ kg. The AI-222-25F is an stretched version fitted with afterburner. The afterburner-equipped engine provides 4,200 kg of thrust at takeoff. The AI-222-25KFK features a shortened afterburner compared to the AI-222-25F engine. The AI-222-25KFK provides 3,000 kg of thrust at takeoff.

The AI-222-25 turbofan engine develops 2,500 kg of thrust at the takeoff. It was selected to power the Yak-130 family of aircraft to be mass produced for the Russian Air Force. The engine and aerodynamics are the key allowing the twin-engine Yak-130 trainer to duplicate the flight envelope of 4th and 5th generation fighter aircraft.
