Irkut Corporation (a UAC member) is to take part in the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2017. Aircraft manufactured by the Corporation will participate in the flight program and will be presented at the display area.

For the first time at MAKS-2017, the “Russian Knights” aerobatics team of the Russian Air Force will fly six Su-30SM aircraft. These multirole super-maneuverable fighters were delivered by the Irkut Corporation in 2016. The new demonstration flight program was composed in 2017.

Two Su-30SM fighters of the Russian Navy will conduct training combat engagements to demonstrate employment of super-maneuverability in achieving victory over opponent. The aircraft will be piloted by the joint crew of the Navy pilots and pilots of the Irkut Corporation.

Two Yak-130 combat-trainers will participate in the flight program. Yak-130 painted in traditional red and white colors of the Yakovlev Design Bureau will perform aerobatics flights. The second Yak-130 will fly in combat configuration with external fuel tanks, guided and unguided weapons, as well as on-board self-defence system.

 The Yak-130 aircraft, modernized for installation of the laser rangefinder increasing combat capabilities, will be presented at the display area.

Two new Yak-152 initial training aircraft will be introduced for the first time at MAKS-2017. One of the aircraft will show the aerobatic capabilities in the flight program. The second aircraft uniquely painted will be located at the display area.
