Greetings to guests and participants

Dear friends,

Today, the MAKS International Aviation and Space Salon deservedly occupies one of the leading places among the world's largest air shows. Our colleagues from other countries have always shown great interest in it. Thus, representatives of more than 40 countries expressed their intention to take part in MAKS-2021.

The MAKS Air Show is an excellent platform for demonstrating Russian high technologies and the openness of our domestic market for joint projects with foreign partners. Aviation and helicopter equipment is traditionally the leader among the products of the State Corporation Rostec supplied for export.

This year, Rostec will present the MS-21-310 airliner with domestic PD-14 engines at the air show. The premiere of our regional turboprop passenger aircraft Il-114-300 will also take place at MAKS-2021. In addition, for the first time we will show the offshore Mi-171A3 which is ready for all-weather operation in any climate and will become one of our key innovations at the air show. Some surprises are also prepared for MAKS's guests.

I am convinced that the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2021 will be held, as always, at a high level and will allow representatives of the authorities, the Russian and foreign business and industry community to see and evaluate the achievements of the domestic and global aircraft industry, to sign mutually beneficial and long-term contracts.

I wish the participants and guests of the air show fruitful work and success!

Director General of the “Rostec” State Corporation
