ST. PETERSBURG, June 1. /TASS/. Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) plans to show its MC-21 passenger jet at the Dubai airshow in fall 2017, UAC President Yuri Slyusar told TASS on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) on Thursday.
"Certainly, plans are in place [to demonstrate MC-21 at major airshows. Certainly, we will not manage to deliver it to Le Bourget [the airshow in France scheduled to June - TASS]. For example, [we plan to show the airplane] at the airshow in Dubai that will take place in fall," Slyusar said.
It was reported earlier Aeroflot is the first Russian buyer of this airplane who plans to have 50 jets in its fleet.
Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) hopes to obtain the certificate of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for its MC-21 passenger jet in 2020:
"We will obtain the certificate of the Interstate Aviation Committee in 2019," Slyusar said.
"European certification will take place in 2020," the company's CEO added.
Availability of this certificate will entitle UAC to perform international deliveries of the new aircraft. The portfolio of orders for MC-21 amounts to 285 aircraft to date, with pre-paid contracts awarded for 185 jets.
