Holding “Aircraft Equipment” to Help Revival of Legendary Aircraft Il-2
In 2015, the “Aircraft Equipment” of the State Corporation Rostec will manufacture chassis parts for the legendary Soviet attack plane IL-2. Restoration of landing gear for combat aircraft will be carried out by the plant “Aviaagregat”. By May 9, 2015 the attack plane would be brought to flight readiness, and will participate in the parade in honor of the 70th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War.
“Revival of IL-2 is a social project that is associated with the most important landmark of the Russian aviation history,” the CEO of the holding “Aircraft Equipment” Maxim Kuzyuk said. – In 1941-1945 years parts and products for the IL-2 were produced by “Aviaagregat”. Totally during the war years, the plant produced more than 40 thousand screws for legendary attack aircraft. For the holding, putting it on the wing is an important mission, because even one flying IL-2 – is part of the great history of our country, we need to remember.”
