  • ANALYSIS: Ukraine's and Russia's aerospace industries will be hit hard by deteriorating relations

    News | 23 Sep 2014 09:16

    Ever since Russia-backed forces began to take control of the Crimean peninsula at the end of February, a steady of escalation of sanctions by Ukraine against Russia has had increasingly negative effects on the aerospace sectors of both countries. Since the collapse of the former Soviet Union in 1991, the two countries' industries had enjoyed an at-times contentious but largely productive collaborative relationship. The most recent round of embargoes placed on Russia by Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko, however, will cut the links and cause collateral damage on both sides.
  • ANALYSIS: Will sanctions affect Russia's aerospace integration with the West?

    ​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.

  • 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.
