On October 25 a session of the “Aircraft” Working Group of the Expert Council within the state program “Aircraft industry development in 2013-2025” took place. Representatives of the Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute named after professor N.E. Zhukovsky (TsAGI, part of the National Research Center “Institute named after N.E. Zhukovsky”) made some proposals concerning execution of a number of integral research works in the aircraft and helicopter areas, including civil unmanned aircraft, as well as the development of procedures, technologies and special equipment in support of the experimental research and creation of wind-tunnel models.

Creation of an advanced long-range aircraft, a regional next-generation aircraft, a civil supersonic aircraft, a freight and a passenger aircraft with advanced transportation capabilities were dealt with. In addition, research of an advanced rotary-winged aircraft, robot aircraft systems, etc. was discussed. The Working Group supported TsAGI’s proposals, which will be referred to the Expert Council for consideration.

“Members of the Working Group have been approved by the Ministry of Industry and Trade and include leading scientists and specialists of the aircraft industry,” Sergey Lyapunov, the Working Group Leader and head of the Aircraft Aerodynamics and Flight Dynamics Complex noted. “Dealing with the topics of advanced research is a crucial stage in the formation of top-priority directions in aircraft science and technology development.”

The state program “Aircraft industry development in 2013-2025” has been developed by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and is aimed at laying a scientific and engineering groundwork to ensure world leadership in aviation technologies, development of human resources, promotion of the Russian aircraft industry’s products in domestic and foreign markets and import phase-out.
