    There are many fronts in the commercial war between the big two airframers. In one crucial skirmish – size of global single-aisle in-service fleet – the Airbus A320 family is within a whisker of overtaking the Boeing 737, when old and current-generation types are combined.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-The-changing-size-and-shape-of-the-world-airliner-fleet-402837/

    ​“I believe,” says Oleg Demchenko, “that my grandchildren will fly in the MC-21." It is a bullish statement from the Irkut president and says much about his faith in the longevity and sales prospects for an airliner that has yet to roll out, let alone perform its maiden flight.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Irkut-builds-future-on-Yak-130-and-MC-21-400399/
  • 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/

  • 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/
