Certification of the Avicopter AC352 medium twin (previously known as the Z15, the Chinese version of the jointly developed Eurocopter EC175) is now pegged for 2014, two years later than the original 2012 target. The AC352 passed some static tests in March. The Ardiden 3C/WZ-16 engine, a Turbomeca-Avic Engine Dongan cooperation, is to be certified in 2013.
