Opening day of the Moscow International Aerospace Show MAKS 2005 proved quite fruitful in terms of contracts in the field of aviation technology
The first contract was signed in the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin between the Russian weaponry trading company Rosoboronexport and the Indian corporation HAL that is going to manufacture the AL-55I engines at one of its factories upon a Russian license. The document envisions the full cycle of works from development of the engines to batch production and exports. The contract says HAL will manufacture a thousand AL-55I engines. A noteworthy fact about it is that Russian designers created the engine to order. It will enable Indian pilots to get training in piloting skills on all types of aircraft the Indian Air Force has on the tables of equipment. An engine plant in the Russian city of Perm and the Azerbaijani airline Silk Way signed an agreement for eight engines in the PS-90A-76 family that will be installed on Ilyushin-76 cargo jets. The Tashkent Aircraft Amalgamation of Uzbekistan signed an agreement with the Azerbaijani state concern Azerbaijan Hava Yollari on purchasing three new modernized jets Ilyushin-76TD-90VD. Yakutia airline will get three regional jets Antonov-140 of Russian assembly on the terms of leasing under an agreement it signed with the Samara Aviation Plant and the Financial Leasing Company. The number of foreign companies exhibiting at MAKS has almost doubled this year compared with 2004 and stands at about 70. For the first time in the history of this international aerospace show, the flags of Finland, Bahrain, Belgium, Georgia, the Netherlands, and Slovakia have been hoisted on the flagpoles of the Gromov Institute airdrome, the venue of the show. A source at the MAKS 2005 directorate said this stands in a definite contrast to other global air shows, such as Le Bourget or Farnborough where the numbers of exhibitors have been declining in recent years. The section displaying achievements in space has become much more impressive this time, as exhibitors show novel equipment for the International Space Station there. One of the things the experts and visitors can see is a life-size model of the new-generation space shuttle Kliper, designed in Russia, and a model of the launching pad for Soyuz carrier rockets at Kourou Space Center in French Guiana. Also Tuesday, experts attended a presentation of the OSA-AKM modernized antiaircraft complex that can bring down jets and helicopters.
