We managed to significantly extend the volume of existing projects as well as launch a number of new important federal level state programmes, such as the programme for the support of national helicopter industry, the project for local manufacturing of LET L-410 aircraft and the programme for the construction of auto-railway ferries aimed at the improvement of transport accessibility of Sakhalin Island with mainland Russia. We continued implementation of existing SSJ100 aircraft programme and transport energy-efficiency programme delivering new natural gas vehicle fleet to various regions of the Russian Federation. It may be safely said that realization of state projects aimed at the development of the national transportation sector and transport machine building industry have been and remain the key objectives for STLC”, stated STLC’s CEO Sergey Khramagin.
