The Ivchenko-Progress AI-222 (Ukrainian: AI-222, Russian: АИ-222-25) are a family of low-bypass turbofan engines.

Design and development

The development of the engine started at Ivchenko-Progress of Zaporizhzhia, Ukraine in 1999. The engine was originally intended for the Yakovlev Yak-130 trainer aircraft. An after-burning version, the AI-222-25F (from Russian/Ukrainian "Форсаж", meaning reheat) is also available with thrust vectoring. In 2015 Russian manufacturer "Saljut" began to produce AI-222-25 without any Ukrainian involvement.[1]
