Industry structure[edit]

Perhaps something like this should be added into the article. Better check it, I'm not sure about the current ownership of Sokol, Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Production Association and Aviakor. Also there is or there was a manufacturer called MAPO, I don't know how it fits into the structure if it still exists.


United Aircraft Corporation Oboronprom (helicopters) Other major producers:

Kazan Aircraft Production Association
Novosibirsk Aircraft Production Association

Oboronprom should be mentioned in the Consolidation section.

I would also add into the article a gallery of aircraft products, or a table with pictures if possible. Greyhood (talk) 19:24, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes, this table is a good idea. I've neglegted the helicopter sector in the history section. I think Russian Helicopters JSC should be mentioned instead of Oboronprom, because it's the direct owner of the companies? Here is some information about MAPO - I'm planning to include it in the history too. A gallery would be a great idea as well. Offliner (talk) 19:35, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
UAC owns 25.5% of NAPO, and Sukhoi 74.5%.[1] Should list NAPO under UAC, although UAC does not have over 50% ownership? Perhaps it can be listed under UAC with the percentage as a clarification. And the some for other partly owned companies. Offliner (talk) 19:41, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
Yes, better add percents. And shouldn't we list NAPO under Sukhoi under UAC? Greyhood (talk) 19:45, 13 September 2010 (UTC)


This may be added into New projects. Greyhood (talk) 19:36, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure if it's economically significant enough to warrant an inclusion. You're free to add it yourself though. Offliner (talk) 19:11, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
I'm also not sure about the economic significance, but Medvedev seems to support the idea of dirigible production in Russia [2], [3], [4] Greyhood (talk) 20:31, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

MAKS Airshow[edit]

MAKS Airshow definitely should be mentioned somewhere, and some related pictures may be of use. Greyhood (talk) 20:01, 13 September 2010 (UTC) Media related to MAKS Airshow at Wikimedia Commons


What you you think of the prose narrative in "history"? It's not perfect, especially since I cannot find good info about the history of the military segment. How much did they produce/export in the 1990s and when did things start to get better? I don't think I will be able to improve this section much further. Offliner (talk) 19:11, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Since when does the history of the Russian industry begin after the fall of SU? What about pre-WW1/WW1? Interwar? Or even (eek!) in the Great Patriotic War? TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 14:15, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
The subject of this article is the aircraft industry of the Russian Federation. History up to 1991 should, in my opinion, go to separate articles like Aircraft industry of the Soviet Union or Aircraft industry of Imperial Russia. Offliner (talk) 15:46, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Had a go at adding a short section with regards how the industry was in the Soviet era. For eaders not familiar with how production units functioned in Communist countries and assume that they function in the same way as Western commercial businesses, the material in the following section lacks context. It would be nice to see a at the top of the section.--KTo288 (talk) 22:40, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
Great work, thanks. Yes, it would be nice to have a separate articles about the Soviet aircraft industry. Do you have more material about the Soviet period? Nanobear (talk) 22:42, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Suggested DYK hook[edit]

Did you know that Aircraft industry of Russia is one of the backbones of the country's economy, employing around 355,300 people?

Source for "backbone" is [5], source for "355,300 people" is [6] (p.16)

What do you think? Offliner (talk) 19:33, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Seems quite good. But I'm no expert on DYK, so better ask someone else. Just be careful, I think some guys on Wikipedia that we both know would prefer the wording Did you know that Aircraft industry of Russia still exists? ;) Greyhood (talk) 20:36, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
