MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. The international Paris Air Show at Le Bourget largely owes its popularity to Russia’s participation, one of the world leaders in aircraft industry, the show’s chief executive and chairman Emeric d'Arcimoles said Tuesday.
"Russia is a traditional contributor to the Paris Air Show, and its participation largely contributes to the show’s popularity," he said at the air show presentation at the French Embassy in Moscow.
D'Arcimoles said that Russia’s largest aerospace industry representatives will be present at the Air Show, for example the United Aircraft Corporation and United Engine Corporation, Rostec, Russian Helicopters, VSMPO-AVISMA and others.
"The Russian aircraft industry recently was a subject to modernization. We participate in the process and, in particular, in the Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft program," d'Arcimoles said. French aircraft company Snecma together with Russian company Saturn developed SaM-146 engine for Sukhoi Superjet.
"Today it is very difficult to build an aircraft alone, without international cooperation. We would like Russian-French cooperation to evolve," the show’s president said.
He noted that in October, 2015 the first Russian-French Forum on training in the field of aviation will be organized together with the Moscow Aviation Institute. "This will provide the opportunity to share experiences in the implementation of projects at the level of higher education institutions, as well as between industrial companies," d'Arcimoles said.
