Irkutsk MS-21 aircraft will be shown for the first time abroad
Irkutsk MS-21 aircraft will be shown at the Technofest technology festival at Istanbul Ataturk Airport. Together with this development, Russia will present civilian aircraft Sukhoi SuperJet 100, Be-200 and Su-35 fighter.
According to TASS, despite the fact that the MS-21 is still under development (certification in Russia is scheduled for the 2020 year), they intend to put it on the foreign market. Irkutsk plane will take part in the flight program of the international fest.
Presentations of the aircraft to foreign delegations are also planned. By the way, the first deliveries of the MS-21 will begin in the second half of the 2021 of the year. At the same time, Aeroflot has already made some of the largest orders - the company expects 50 aircraft.
Earlier, the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) signed supply agreements at the MAKS-2019 air show 20 aircraft MS-21, which will produce the Irkut Corporation. According to the head of the civil division Ravil Khakimov, the MS-21 will be 20% cheaper than Boeing and Airbus of a similar class. This year, the Russian government allocated from the federal budget 1,58 billion to subsidize costs associated with the creation, production, sale and maintenance of aircraft of the MS-21 family. Due to the termination of the supply of composite materials from the United States, the completion of the project was decided shift for a year.
