United Aircraft Corporation will demo three T-50 aircraft and also present the Il-76MD-90A transport aircraft at the forthcoming MAKS-2013 airshow in Zhukovsky.
Three Su-35s and Su-34s already delivered to the Russian Air Force will also be on display. Frontline fighters Su-30SM prepared for delivery to the Ministry of Defense as well as MiG-29SMT, MiG-29K and MiG-35 fighters will also be participating in the flight program.
Yak-130 trainer aircraft in historic colors of the Yakovlev design bureau will show a unique flight program. Unlike previous shows this time almost all military aircraft are serially produced aircraft belonging to the Russian air force. UAC’s efforts to fulfill the state Defense order will allow equipping the Russian Air Force with state-of-the-art modern aircraft, the company said in a statement.
For the first time at the static display the Sukhoi Superjet 100 VIP-version will be shown. The Tu-214ON (Open Sky) aircraft is to be delivered to the Ministry of Defense during the show.
“This year we are coming to MAKS with outstanding results that are to confirm great growth dynamics of the Corporation. Today UAC’s order portfolio consists of more than 580 aircraft worth more than trillion rubles, surpassing current UAC’s consolidated revenues six fold. This is a good basis for achieving our strategic goals. We will demonstrate excellent military aircraft that are joining the Air Force fleet and we also expect to add orders to our civil aircraft portfolio – SSJ 100 and MS-21,” said Mikhail Pogosyan, President of the United Aircraft Corporation.
