Alexey Rogozin was appointed Vice-President for Transport Aviation of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) on March 14, 2017.
He will form the transport division, consolidate key management functions at the corporate headquarters level and build a unified management system for transport aviation programs. One of the key issues is to meet the demand of the Ministry of Defence and other executive authorities for renewal of their respective transport aircraft fleets.
The move is a part of a strategic program to transform UAC’s corporate structure through forming core-business divisions that was approved by the Board of Directors in December, 2016. The decision is intended to improve operational efficiency at all stages of aviation equipment life cycle, to keep nonmanufacturing costs down due to centralization of management functions, including concerted fulfilment of contractual obligations to produce new equipment models.
UAC’s transport division should build a unified management system for transport aviation programs – heavy Il-76, light Il-112, advanced medium and ultra-heavy transport aircraft. VASO, Aviastar-SP, UAC-TA, Experimental Machine-Building Plant named after V.Myasishchev and a number of repair plants will be consolidated and Ilyushin will become the parent company of the transport division.
