Aero Engines Research and Design Centre established in 1960 carries out design and development of Gas Turbine Engines. It has successfully designed and developed small aero engines in operation with the defence services. Centre holds patents and copyrights for certain critical technologies.

Centre completed design and development of a Hindustan Jet Engine (HJE-2500) as  first jet engine project in 1965 which was  proposed for the HJT-16 aircraft. Later, piston engine and other engine accessories including a pneumatic starter and hydraulic pump were developed. The centre is the only design house which has developed test beds for Engines of Western as well as Russian origin engines. 

AERDC has taken up the design and development of HTFE-25 engine, a turbo fan engine for powering medium thrust class aircraft and HTSE-1200 engine, a turbo-shaft engine for powering helicopters.
