ZHUKOVSKY (Moscow Region) (Sputnik) — Russia's United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) is proceeding with the development of electric aircraft for civil and military applications, UAC's chief designer Sergey Korotkov said Thursday.

"Now we are working on new sources of energy and are planning to develop electric aircraft. The main goal is to apply the experience and practices of all design bureaus," Korotkov told reporters at the 13th International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2017.

The chief designer added that such research would allow UAC to begin the implementation of projects on creating new types of aviation for civil and military uses.

"Yesterday, for example, a range of agreements on batteries that will provide planes with new energy were signed," Korotkov added.

The MAKS-2017 International Aviation and Space Salon kicked off in the town of Zhukovsky near Moscow on Tuesday and will last through Sunday.
