Official data on 2014 ZhuHai Air Show: "TaiHang" WS-10A jet engine


Specifications ;

-new variant of WS-10A engine reaches 14000kg thrust and has certify
-lifespan of WS-10A is 4000hrs and schedule maintenance every 300hrs
-WS-10A has started mass equip of domestic aircraft like J-11B/D, J-10B/C, J-15, J-16 and Y-20 transport aircraft.
-WS-10A still not fully equipped all domestic aircraft is because many AL-31 engine lifespan has not used up.


Taihang engine is already in-production and in-service with the PLAAF. Note the yellow serial numbers on the vertical stabilizer. These are in-service aircraft.
the Taihang's 14,000 kgf of maximum thrust is enough to surpass the AL-31F M1 (13,500 kgf) and AL-31FN Series 3 (13,700 kgf) and it slightly below the 117S (14,500 kgf), but very close.

The Taihang is also in-service with the PLANAF. Note the blue serial numbers.
The fact that the PLANAF is willing to use the Taihang should at least give you a clue regarding its reliability. Only a fool would fly an unreliable engine over water.
