27 Russian defense companies to take part in Le Bourget show

A total of 59 Russian firms and agencies, including 27 defense companies, will take part in the upcoming international air show outside Paris, the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) said.

The 49th International Paris Air Show will be held at Le Bourget on June 20-26.

“Twenty-seven defense companies will exhibit military aircraft and related products,” a FSMTC spokesman told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

According to the official, Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 passenger jet and Be-200 amphibious plane will make demonstration flights at the biennial air show, which this year attracted over 2,000 exhibitors and 205 official delegations from 88 countries.

Russia will also showcase a full-scale mockup of a cockpit of the prospective MS-21 airliner for 150-212 passengers, which could become a market rival to Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 planes.

Aircraft industry experts agree that Russia, China and Brazil will dominate the Paris Air Show this year.
