  • ANALYSIS: Will sanctions affect Russia's aerospace integration with the West?

    News | 08 Aug 2014 09:43 | Murdo Morrison

All the industry’s big names had sizeable chalets or stands, including United Aircraft (UAC), the holding company for most of the country’s aircraft brands, as well as Russian Helicopters and defence export agency Rosonboronexport. UAC company Irkut had its own exhibition area for a mock-up of the in-development MC-21 narrowbody, while another subsidiary, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCAC), had two Superjet 100s on static display with its Italian partner Superjet International.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Will-sanctions-affect-Russias-aerospace-integration-with-the-West-402310/
