"Since our company is specialized in aircraft manufacturing, it might be useful for us to visit the forum. We’re looking into such an option", said Anatoly Kozlov, deputy technical director for airplanes at the Smolensk Aircraft Plant. "Above all, we’re interested in engines for light aviation, particularly, 400-700-hp piston turboprop powerplants, and 300-500-kg thrust jet engines".
The coming forum is sponsored and arranged by the United Engine Corporation. The exhibitor is the International Association of Aero-Engine Manufacturers. The MFD-2018 is held once in two years. In 2018, the event will take place in Moscow, at VDNKh (Pav. 75, Hall B) in April 4-6.
