The A350-1000 is the newest and largest wide-body aircraft of the A350 family, designed for 440 passengers in a single-class layout. The liner will be presented at the static exposition and will take part in the MAKS-2021 flight program from 20-22 July. The aircraft uses continuous wing profile optimization technology to reduce drag and fuel consumption. The liner is equipped with the latest Rolls Royce Trent XWB 97 engines with 15% increased thrust. The flight range of the A350-1000 is 16100 km. More than 70% of the airframe is made of new generation materials, 53% of which are composites.

The static exhibition at MAKS-2021 will also feature one of the five EC145 helicopters of the Moscow Aviation Center operating in the Russian capital. Airbus Helicopters and IAC have been cooperating for over 14 years. During this time, the center's helicopters took part in saving the lives and health of more than 6400 patients in Moscow. Simplified access to the cockpit through wide side sliding doors or through the rear doors, a spacious cabin, as well as the high reliability of the aircraft, make this helicopter the best choice for medical tasks.
