Since the collapse of the former Soviet Union in 1991, the two countries' industries had enjoyed an at-times contentious but largely productive collaborative relationship.

  • Tupolev design breaks new ground for Russian industry

    News | 24 Jul 2000 23:00

    <p>Tim Ripley</p> <p>Russian aerospace executives have launched a major campaign to generate interest in the Tupolev Tu-324 regional aircraft, after Russian President Vladimir Putin gave the new aircraft his stamp of approval. The jet-powered aircraft is at the forefront of the Russian aerospace industry's efforts to compete with Western European and North America companies. It is the first Russian aircraft programme to be funded totally by commercial backers and the first being designed using computer technology. "The Tu-324 is a 52-passenger aircraft with modern double-loop jet engines," says Nazir Kireev, who heads the Tartarstan government's management group. "Its flight range when fully loaded is 2,500km (1,400nm). It can be successfully used on regional routes with low passenger flow. "Advanced dimensions and flight characteristics of the Tu-324 can easily make it a comfortable business-jet. With 10-12 passengers on board it can cover a distance of over 7,000km.
