The future of the Russian aviation industry in the segment of commercial (civilian) aviation is primarily associated with the prospects of the projectSukhoi Superjet 100andMS-21, told RIA Novosti on Thursday, July 11, deputy director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST) Konstantin Makienko.

"The future of the Russian commercial aviation industry due to the implementation of projects Sukhoi Superjet 100 and MS-21. This is probably the most competitive Russian civilian aircraft. If these two projects will not go, then the commercial aviation in Russia is not at all" — said after the meeting Makienko Franco-Russian analytical center "Observatory" on the problems of the Russian aircraft industry.

He stressed that successful implementation of Sukhoi Superjet 100 project, for example, you need to annually produce about 50-70 aircraft, not 10-20 as of now. "According to the business plan and should happen. As a result, over 10 years to be built and sold 800-900 aircraft," — said Makienko.

In this case, the agency said that aircraft such asIl-96 and Tu-204 units are under construction, and with financial support from the state. Accordingly, the prospects for these aircraft in both domestic and foreign market are minimal.

Also, the quantitative growth of exports of military aviation in Russia may soon connect only with the conclusion of major contracts for the supply of Su-35 fighters to China, said the deputy director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST) Konstantin Makienko.

Over the past decade, the Russian export of military aviation in the number of units, not in terms of money reduced. This was due to the saturation of markets in China and India, the largest importers of Russian fighters.

"The growth of export of Russian military aircraft in the coming years may be associated with the conclusion of new contracts for the supply, in particular, the Su-35" — Makiyenko said after a meeting of the Franco-Russian analytical center "Observatory" on the problems of the Russian aircraft industry.

He explained that China intends this or next years contract with Russia for the purchase of the party of 24 Su-35 fighters. "It is possible that in the future China will want to buy the same amount, and then the license for their production," — said the source.

However, he noted that the issue of up to China will be difficult to solve is sufficient, as the Su-35 — a very complex aircraft. Furthermore,copying of the Su-27 Chinese assistance previously provided Ukraine and Belarus, providing certain technologies."Now Su-35 — the product is Russian, so no one except the Russian aid to China will not be able to provide. Can only be properly licensed, "- said the deputy director of CAST.
