  • FARNBOROUGH: Russia's resurgent United Aircraft

    News | 12 Jul 2014 13:55 | Dominic Perry

    ​For United Aircraft, Russia’s state-owned aerospace giant, the last 12 months appear to have been a period of consolidation and reinforcement. Its two flagship civil programmes have made solid if unspectacular progress, largely avoiding the calamities of previous years. And on the military side, deliveries of current models have continued apace to its masters in Moscow – as well as healthy number to export customers. Development of the next generation of fighter aircraft had appeared to be going smoothly too, although a 10 June fire aboard a Sukhoi T-50/PAK-FA prototype may cause more problems than the company has so far admitted to. Meanwhile, in the background, UAC has continued with the deep restructuring process that began virtually with its inception in 2006.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/FARNBOROUGH-Russias-resurgent-United-Aircraft-400347/
  • FARNBOROUGH: Komsomolsk - an unlikely centre for Russia's new aviation industry

    News | 10 Jul 2014 11:02 | Murdo Morrison

    Russia’s first “Western” jet is assembled in a city that is about as far from the West as you can be in that vast country. An 8h flight across seven time zones from Moscow and frozen for much of the year, Komsomolsk-on-Amur was established in the 1930s to build ships and aircraft to counter an invasion threat from nearby Japan. Thousands of workers were shipped east to build the city and staff the factories, and statues and murals celebrating the achievements of the proletariat are dotted amid the Soviet-era apartment blocks and potholed streets.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/FARNBOROUGH-Komsomolsk-an-unlikely-centre-for-Russias-new-aviation-industry-400879/
