I welcome participants, guests and organizers of the 12th international exhibition and scientific conference on hydroaviation “Hydroaviasalon-2018”!

The development of aviation in the South of Russia has a glorious history of more than a century. World-famous domestic developments in the field of hydroaviation, capable of solving a wide range of tasks, from search and rescue at sea, extinguishing fires to combat submarines. The highest qualification of engineers and workers today is the key to maintaining the leading position of our country in this segment of the aircraft industry.

Traditionally, the aviation industry has been the engine of economic and technological development. That is why we pay close attention to the best practices, especially in the areas of unmanned aircraft systems, as well as the conversion products, noting the great potential of these projects to improve the efficiency of machine engineering enterprises of a wide profile, agriculture, health, communication systems.

I am sure that Hydroaviasalon-2018 will become a meeting place for professionals, will help to strengthen the competitiveness of domestic engineering, build cooperation in high-tech and knowledge-intensive projects, as well as transfer of high technologies to other sectors of the economy.

I sincerely wish the participants of “Hydroaviasalon ” fruitful work and achievement of the goals.
