The text notes that the global aerospace industry was among the industries that were most affected by the pandemic, and following the cessation of international flights, airlines began to refuse to purchase new aircraft, and the largest foreign aircraft manufacturers are not ready to participate in industry exhibitions.
“In 2020, it was decided to cancel the Farnborough air show, and at the end of the year, the verdict was announced on the world’s largest air show in Le Bourget – this event was deleted from the 2021 exhibition calendar. But the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS, held in Zhukovsky near Moscow, will be held on the set dates, “the Moscow city news agency quoted the message.
It is also noted that leading Russian aircraft manufacturers and a number of foreign companies have confirmed their participation in MAKS and have reserved space.
At the MAKS-2019 air show, the Russian MC-21 aircraft made its first demonstration flight, which lasted about five minutes. Prior to this, prototypes of the MS-21 made only test or ferry flights, the NSN specifies.
