Sukhoi design bureau is looking at establishing a production line for its Su-31 sports aerobatic aircraft in Armenia. A delegation of senior Sukhoi representatives discussed the proposal with the Armenian prime minister Armen Darbinyan last month. Around $7 million may be invested in the project by Sukhoi and outside investors. The Russian manufacturer, which will be responsible for marketing the Su-31, estimates that the new production line will initially roll out up to 40 aircraft a year, but will have the capacity to produce double this amount. Sukhoi will be responsible for international marketing.
