A meeting in preparation for MAKS-2019 International Aviation and Space Salon took place in Moscow on 4 June and was headed by Oleg Bocharov, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation. The event was attended by Governor Sergey Morozov.


“The Ulyanovsk region has regularly participated in the Salon's business programme since 2009. This year we are ready to share our experience in aviation cluster development, as well as to exchange techniques with our colleagues. Another important topic will be development of human capital; in particular, interactions between enterprises and higher education institutions regarding educational programmes, scientific and innovative projects and interregional circular migration”, – Sergey Morozov emphasized.

In addition, the Governor of the Ulyanovsk region took part in opening of the photo exhibition "Stars of MAKS in Zaryadye Park". It focused on International Aviation and Space Salons carried out in Zhukovsky, a city situated near Moscow. It was agreed that the exhibition would be also demonstrated in other aviation regions.

According to organizers, for the first time the Salon will host a newly formed special section “Made in Russia”, which will be held in a special pavilion to bring together expositions of enterprises from the Republic of Tatarstan, as well as the Ulyanovsk, Samara, Nizhny Novgorod, Perm and Smolensk regions. This sector will put emphasis on products and services of second-,third- and fourth-tier suppliers. Cargo Village project will also become a new addition to the programme and will be carried out with participation of An-124 and Il-76 aircraft of Volga-Dnepr Group. This venue will demonstrate unique opportunities for export development of airfreight services.

We would like to remind that the Ulyanovsk region has AO "Aviastar-SP" (an aircraft factory) and AO "Ulyanovsk Instrument Manufacturing Design Bureau" (the leading enterprises for development and production of avionics), as well as "AeroComposit-Ulyanovsk" (unique manufacturer of the black wing for MS-21 of AO) and AO "Spektr-Avia" (the largest in the country aircraft painting center).
