Reuters reported, aviation industry, Russia has decided to work alone and produce 1,000 aircraft before the end of this decade to end dependence on the manufacturers to foreign aircraft such as Airbus and Boeing. Industry experts consider this to be indication that the relationship of Russia with the West can hardly thaw in the near future.
Before the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the Western nations have responded by bringing out the sanctions tough to kill the industry aerospace in the countries of the former Soviet Union.
Although Russia is considered to be a large country in the aerospace industry, but the domestic market of the country remained dominated by the carriers such as Airbus and Boeing. Two aircraft manufacturers accounted for 95% of the market share in the country. On January 3, sheet Military Engineering reported that Russia was quick to enact laws allowing these aircraft to fly and also get the certificate of airworthiness, in local time. However, due to the protracted conflict, these measures are tapered and Russia need to have long-term plans to keep flying overhead.
The intensity ambitious of Russia
Under Vladimir Putin, the industry aerospace Russia has found new life after a consortium of aerospace, state-owned, Rostec was established in 2007. Now, manufacturers of civil aircraft only of Russia has decided that they will meet all the needs of the industry, and aircraft of foreign production will leave the team plane of the Russian airline.
In the response sent to Reuters, the group said they don't see Airbus and Boeing will be transferred to Russia in the future and has to embark on journey aircraft, with the production department in the country. Rostec will start this process by replacing the parts imported as Pratt & Whitney on the aircraft MS-21 flight path medium.
The airline will also produce 20 new aircraft per year under the jet stream area Superjet-new from year 2024. From now until 2030, Rostec plans to produce 142 Superjet News, 270 pcs MS-21, 70 aircraft turboprop Il-114, 70, Tu-214. aircraft as well as 12 jet wide-body Il-96.
Laboratory of China is how?
Dynamics of Russia to repeat the decision of China to compete with the Airbus A320 and 737 Max Boeing airplane C919's homegrown them, are made without pressure, punish. China has taken steps this 14 years ago and just earlier this month, the new aircraft inching closer to certification.
The aircraft is assembled in China but depends more on the West of the component systems such as avionics, as well as motor, a report by Reuters said. Although an airplane aisle, this can meet the needs of China in the coming decades, but to this country truly autonomous, they need to replace the parts aircraft produced in the country, a move expected to take at least a decade and billions of dollars, experts told Reuters.
China's experience offers a glimpse about the plans of Russia will be difficult to implement as how in the time frame that they have to impose yourself. Experts told Business Insider that even after spending a huge amount of resources, Russia can still use the technology level two simply because of the best technology out there still lies out of reach.
