International aviation and space salons traditionally become the venues for the presentation of new domestic aircraft. For example, world premiere of the Su-57 fighter jet – then under its T-50 factory index – took place on the 17th of August at MAKS-2011. Two years later, at MAKS-2013 there was the aerobatics show with a team of three fighter jets of this type.
In addition to the Su-57, the enterprises belonging to the UAC will present multipurpose fighters Su-35, Su-30CM and MiG-35, fighter-bomber Su-35, as well as training, civilian aircraft and special purpose aircraft at the static exposition and in the flight display.
