We held meetings with a number of airlines, to which we are ready to offer the MS-21 and Superjet 100. In addition, Turkey, as a country with a highly developed industry, may be interested in cooperation projects
- said Slyusar.
It should be noted that this happened after September 16, 2019, the promising Russian medium-range narrow-body passenger aircraft MS-21 (“21st Century Mainline Aircraft”), developed by Irkut Corporation, made a flight from Moscow to Istanbul. MS-13.26 arrived at Ataturk Airport to participate in the Technofest festival at 4 local time. In addition, in the same place, in Istanbul, Russia introduced Turkey a multi-functional, highly maneuverable 35 ++ Su-200 fighter (NATO codification: “Flanker-E +” - “Flanker”) and a Be-XNUMXES amphibious aircraft.
By the way, other interesting prospects of the Russian aircraft industry became known. For example, at the ongoing international aviation exhibition in Beijing (China), the United Engine Corporation (UEC), a member of the Rostec state corporation, proposed using its engine in a joint Russian-Chinese project for a wide-body long-range CR929 aircraft.
