Russian-Chinese wide-body aircraft will appear on the market in 9-10 years - Pogosyan

The Russian-Chinese wide-body aircraft will appear on the market in 9-10 years, said Mikhail Pogosyan, President of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), at the opening Chinese aerospace show, which features two new Chinese fighters.

The passenger liner, created by the Russian Federation and China, is designed for a flight range of 12 thousand kilometers and transportation to 300 passengers. At the beginning of 2020, it is planned to begin flight tests of the new aircraft.

Now the stage of preliminary design of the aircraft is underway, potential suppliers in the cooperation system for its creation are being determined. "We have already identified the main requirements for the aircraft. In the near future we intend to work out in detail this project and the issues of economic implementation of this project. Within the next nine to ten years, this program should enter the market," Poghosyan said.

He also said that China's copying of Russian military aircraft poses no threat to the Russian industry: "It is very difficult to make a copy of a high-tech product. It is not as easy a task as it seems. So there is no danger."

According to the forecast of the Deputy Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Yuri Slyusar, the Russian-Chinese passenger aircraft will appear on the market by 2025. "We plan to bring the aircraft to the market by 2025. It will make its first flight according to our schedule, if I am not mistaken, in 2021-2022." - said the deputy minister.

According to him, the aircraft will be sold in different markets, "for the market of one country, even such a large one as China, it is impractical to implement such a project."
