Greetings to guests and participants

Dear organizers, participants and guests of the International aviation and space salon!

Russia surely maintains a key position among the leaders of the world market of military products, annually exporting military equipment worth about $ 15 billion. A considerable share of this volume falls on aircraft and air defense equipment. Especially in demand from foreign customers are samples of weapons tested in real combat conditions and proven to be highly effective.

At the same time, the range of services for the maintenance of the delivered equipment provided by the Russian subjects of the MTC (Military-Technical cooperation) is expanding. Our offers in the field of after-sales service of aviation technique and air defense equipment throughout the whole cycle of their operation are permanently optimized.

A wide range of Russian proposals in the field of aviation products and air defense equipment delivery and their subsequent comprehensive maintenance service, will be presented at the next International aviation and space salon “MAKS–2019”.

By the way, the strong point of MAKS is traditionally the full-scale demonstration of aircraft, including samples not presented at other air shows.

The exhibition is visited regularly by dozens of official delegations, this year we also expect distinguished guests and industry representatives from our partner countries.

I hope that modern aviation technique and air defense equipment of Russian production will once again arouse the interest of customers and experts, and “MAKS–2019” as well as past Salons will become a dynamic and colorful event.

I wish the participants and guests fruitful negotiations and good work results at MAKS–2019.
