IRKUT provided an interesting PDF today – MC-21-ENG
In the document there are a number of links to videos of the program’s progress.
This reflects a new level of information openness to emerge from IRKUT and is to be commended. The greater level of transparency, perhaps, demonstrates a growing confidence at IRKUT on their ability to achieve revised timelines. It looks like first flight in the spring is achievable.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
