MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
I welcome you to the International Aviation and Space Salon, one of the main international events.
Today, the science city Zhukovsky for the fifteenth time has become the center of the latest achievements of the domestic and world aerospace industry. From year to year MAKS enjoys great interest, the geography of its participants is expanding. And this is not surprising. After all, the salon is a great opportunity for business communication, discussion of topical issues, exchange of ideas, conclusion of mutually beneficial contracts. The main thing is that the unique MAKS exhibition space demonstrates the highest intellectual, scientific and technical potential of our country, the rich traditions of domestic aircraft construction.
Coronavirus infection has become a serious test for the economy and the aviation industry. Despite this, Russian manufacturers, with the support of the state, were able to turn the crisis into new opportunities. Companies are successfully coping with a difficult situation, do not slow down the pace of development, conduct tests, prepare civil aircraft and helicopters of a new generation for launching to the market. A striking example of this will be the demonstration at MAKS-2021 of the MS-21-310 airliner, the Il-112V light military transport aircraft, and the Il-114-300 regional turboprop passenger aircraft. I am sure that the special interest of visitors will be aroused by the flight program, which will demonstrate the highest skill, coherence and beauty of the flight of the aerobatic teams of the Russian Air Force and guests from foreign countries.
Dear friends! The MAKS salon allows not only to see all the diversity of the modern aviation market, but also to understand the prospects of aircraft construction. We see them in flexible smart manufacturing, end-to-end digital solutions, the use of artificial intelligence, and the widespread adoption of unmanned and robotic systems. Particular attention should be paid to the training of highly qualified specialists.
I wish the participants and guests of the 15th International Aviation and Space Salon great success, fruitful meetings, contacts and clear skies overhead.
