  • 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/
