after an early russian aerodynamics genius this year was the tenth time around for this festival flight since its starting nine hundred ninety three with over eight hundred companies representing thirty countries the biggest draw for the year shows more than half a million guests will surely be in-flight action movie business was also on the bill racking up some ten billion dollars in deals even with all the international big shots bringing their wares russia's open secret made the biggest bush the suhoor cockfight t fifty finally broke out from behind the closed doors covering its development flying for crowds in cameras for the first time it's a fifth generation stealth fighter jet propelled russia's air force deep into the twenty first century each maxie's new headlines and highlights like this to hoist superjet in two thousand and nine or two thousand and eleven is already a new decade with new projects like a whole batch of edition cargo and passenger jets in russia's civil aviation pipeline. undoubtedly the most notable newcomer is here could see and see twenty

one with a full scale cabin model on display for the very first time its final boarding call for a glimpse to the future of this short and mid range commercial line. this single narrow body d.m.c. twenty one is actually an emerging family two hundred three hundred and four hundred modifications forthcoming will be capable of transporting anywhere from one fifty to over two hundred passengers per flight at a range starting at thirty five hundred to five thousand kilometers potentially a to seven thousand in the future cabin designs are easily transformable to increase comfort or capacity the total order to make these planes and internationally competitive aircraft rests on the shoulders of the. corp on the strength of over seventy five years at its factory in the siberian city of your goods the company hopes not only to bring in reinforcements for the eating domestic to polish one fight for fleets but also challenge the dominance of giants boeing and airbus in this market segment thankfully they're not starting from square one

with a steady flow of skilled scientists and engineers from russian aerospace schools making the project all the more promising. designing this plane with a wide range of international partners inside russia this means working with research institutes for aero hundred on a mix aviation materials and aviation technologies the stage is the chief of aviation systems is helping design the airplanes digital components for all of the n.c. twenty one will be offered with engine options either present with the speed of you fourteen hundred g. or the specially designed new p.c. for t.v. a project of russia's obvious bigoted. tusk is to provide the advantage of cheaper engines without compromising performance parameters and available resources most importantly in terms of the lifecycle cost as compared to our competitors abroad one of the it's important to point out that we're regarding this engine as the plate full on the basis of which engines will be designed for the home line of

these airplanes the p.t. fourteen is projected to meet and exceed international standards on fuel consumption emissions and noise pollution new engines are stored but they aren't the only innovative briefing for the year could jet. are leaving aerodynamics is it you'd thought he made a crucial contribution to this project their experts produced a new concept for wing design it has a little together and you profile for supercritical airfoils all of their work helps greatly improve the plane's aerodynamics in addition to this super critical design high wing aspect ratio on the wide reaching airplane is a further aerodynamic advantage but it's largely what the winds are made. they can . visit if it's here you can see it complicit wing books for the n c twenty one airliner it uses unique and advanced technology called vacuum and fusion in a joint project between the name design an aero come visit and the sukhoi company's design bureau on the russian side as well as ostrich and the material supply side
5:36 am
to it from the us i think these materials and technologies have made it possible to improve the aerodynamic characteristics of the wing reduce its weight and as a result increase the airplane fuel efficiency by up to twelve percent enough to assume there are an awful lot of parts that have to fall into place for a passenger plane to break into the cutthroat commercial market but the mc twenty one is already taking its first rides into a sunny future on board the prototype cabinet in moscow here show i could already get a feel for how a flight on that you could airliner might one day be automated latches opening oversize luggage bins spacious seats in both business and economy and of course a screen it every seat. as passengers we're most concerned with smooth sailing to our destination and hence by every available many of the carriers are all about the bottom line all three m. c. twenty one models allow for everything from spacious mixed class layouts to the

tighter tour operator scheme and makes the most out of every last row in any combination airplanes will remain wider than traditional single jets just enough extra aisle space to eliminate the annoying service cards squeezed by a train simul style. from the flight deck pilots also enjoy every purchase of twenty first century aviation with multi-functional l.c.d. output panels to integrate delayed acing digitize flight controls. those pilot wings i decided to thing runway ready obviously this model's not exactly but here could explain it production twenty one by twenty fourteen so there should be more progress through. ported the next three months this year's most triumphal entry went to the brand new long awaited seventy seven dreamliner from boeing which had just wrapped up test flights for u.s. federal aviation administration certification it is home base outside seattle washington with one of the nine trial seventy seven's freed up for

a short getaway mox visitors got a glimpse at the latest widebody boeing billed as the company's most advanced most fuel efficient airplane ever and with russian flagship airline i am floored said to take twenty two of the new dreamliner the ten hour cruise from far away seattle gave future customers a good preview of what the modern machine is capable of. it was a very enjoyable easy flight we used a lot of the automation on the airplane to make the workload i was doing it little as possible. so the auto pilot course was used to auto throttle regimes just monitor those systems the airplane is equipped with something d l c an automatic inclusion reporting and so forth so we could get down each of all those things we didn't have to make the standard position in force on the h.f. radio airplanes system did those reports course so very very
5:39 am
enjoyable flight and russian was hardly a brand of choice for the dreamliner is visit as moscow is home to boeing's biggest engineering office outside the u.s. the eleven hour time difference from the west coast headquarters to russia's capital means the company has around the clock engineering operations within aerospace tradition they grew up alongside and even in times ahead of the american and european schools russia provides a rich pool of specialists that was a big deal in developing the dreamliner the think about the russian contribution to this aero pray i think that i would say that materials and dynamics two main areas. weather partnership in russia made it possible for me probably little say that this airplane wouldn't happen without our russian partners in terms of design russian engineers simply cling to the nose cone structure that leads to seventy seven skyward they pitched in on electrical systems or conditioning they designed a crucial video of the wing that provides lift the pylon for mounting the engines
5:40 am
and even added some flair to the passenger friendly interior. when it comes to simply airplanes there are parts in their parts and it's largely thanks to unique new components that boeing is promising a twenty percent bump in efficiency they could help the dreamliner as operators cut two point four million dollars per plane per year this efficiency would be impossible with alki parts like this mahdi cord connecting the wind to diffuse a law made entirely of russian composite materials to source of these olympic materials this would all boeing a joint venture between the aircraft company envious m.p.o. will be smuggled producer of fully a quarter of the world's titanium is it will believe in russia stood last region the unique titanium eloisa are turned into the backbone of the seventy seven breakthroughs in material science achieved here for a major reason the world can expect whiter stronger more eco friendly airplanes in

new standard bearing jet before it even made its first test flight so expect them soon in an airport near you not all the new music box or commercial jetliners and for many the far flung sparsely populated russian regions bigger isn't necessarily better it's with an eye on regional small craft aviation it has been developed and it's already one attention it mocks for greater than its size the assembly lines at some marist sask a day of progress helped put the first soviet cost not seen orbit and propelled generations of the air and space craft skyward for more than a half century of its history so it's an auspicious starting place for what will be the first post soviet small aircraft first serial production designed by engineers at moscow based technology it is intended to combine modern performance and avionics with the rugged all condition reliability needed to serve russia's regions . no hell of a design as can be seen in several solutions employed on this if one is excellent i
