IRKUTSK, August 3 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Irkut Corporation has been working successfully on the contracts with the Defence Ministry on supplies of 60 multifunctional Su-30 SM and 55 trainer aircrafts Yak-130, Deputy Defence Minister Yuri Borisov said.
“The entire order for 2012, which is 18 Yak-130 aircrafts and 14 Su-30SM aircrafts, will be delivered to the Air Force in time,” he said after visiting the Irkutsk Aviation Plant, which is a part of the Irkut Corporation. “The deliveries are due before November of the current year.”
“We have three main contracts: two three-year contracts on Su-30SM, and half-through is the contract on supplies of Yak-130 trainer aircrafts,” the deputy minister said.
“At the plant, we have checked the production and the work on the order for the current year. As for Irkut’s own work, everything is fine. There are certain things done already for 2014’s plan. All airframes for the current year are made already. In some occasions supplies may be suspended because of delays caused by subcontractors’ components. But those are traditional issues not for aircraft construction only, but also for other industries. There are no reasons for delays with the sate defence order Irkut has for 2013.”
