  • OPINION: How Putin's actions will harm Russian industry

    News | 13 Aug 2014 23:00

    ​Just over one year ago, Russia’s resurgent aerospace industry dominated the flying display at the Paris air show, ably covering for the low-profile showing by the unusually cash-strapped US armed forces. Highlights included the Sukhoi Su-35 fighter and Kamov Ka-52 attack helicopter, along with the Superjet regional ­airliner and Irkut’s in-development MC-21. Ukraine’s An-70 transport was also on show, with Antonov holding on to hopes of securing fresh backing from Moscow.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/OPINION-How-Putins-actions-will-harm-Russian-industry-402650/
  • ANALYSIS: Will sanctions affect Russia's aerospace integration with the West?

    News | 08 Aug 2014 09:43 | Murdo Morrison

    ​At first glance, the Russian presence at this year’s Farnborough reflected the confidence of the country’s resurgent aerospace sector, and the value with which its key players regard the biennial air show. 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/
