Greetings to guests and participants

Dear friends!

The International aviation and space salon is one of the largest specialized platforms for demonstration of the latest achievements of domestic and foreign enterprises.

The expositions of Russian companies where you can get acquainted with the latest developments in the sphere of aircraft, helicopter and rocket construction, space systems, weapons complexes, always cause increased interest.

The high quality and reliability of our military products are confirmed by a large number of interstate contracts which are traditionally concluded during the course of the salon.

It is important to note that MAKS is also a great aviation festival with the participation of the best aerobatic flight groups: “Russkie Vitiazi (Russian Knights)”, “Strizhi (Swifts)”, “Krylia Tavridy (Wings of Tavrida)” and “Berkuty (Golden Eagles)”. Their flight program allows you to experience a sense of pride for our country, to realize the force and power of the Russian military aircraft.

I wish all participants to “put on the wing” their most daring ideas, and the audience — to get bright and unforgettable impressions!
