Today, the designers and engineers of the company have new, ambitious tasks related to improving the competitiveness of the domestic aviation industry. The most important of them is the development of serial production of the Tu-204SM advanced medium-range passenger plane.
I hope that the professionalism and modern management approach will help you achieve your goals.”
