United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) will take part in the Asia's Largest Aerospace and Defence event – international Singapore Air Show 2018, which runs from 6 to 11 February. The UAC’s product line will be represented by the military and civil aircraft models produced by the Corporation divisions.
The UAC’s stand will showcase the models of Su-35, Su-32, MiG-35, MiG-29K, Su-30SME, Yak-130, Yak-152, Be-103, Be-200, SSJ100 and МС-21 aircraft. Also, guests of the show will be able to visit the flight simulator of the new Russian MC-21 airliner.
The static display will host the Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft with the new horizontal wing tips installed. The installation of saber-like wingtips allows to improve the take-off and landing characteristics of the SSJ100 and to decrease the fuel consumption by at least 3%. These improvements in the takeoff and landing characteristics are expected to be highly valued by the Asia-Pacific region customers, as it brings the advantage of operating SSJ100 at regional aerodromes, as well as in hot weather conditions and at high-level airfields.
As part of the exhibition work with potential buyers, UAC will present the MC-21 program, which has already proceeded to the phase of flight certification tests.
The demonstration of the MC-21 full flight simulator would show the benefits of the MC-21 airplane family -- reliability, a high level of passenger comfort, ergonomics of the crew cabin and others.
