According to him, IAP is one of the most advanced in the country in terms of technical equipment, production organization, staffing and economic indicators. Borisov emphasized that 3,5 million rubles of average annual output per worker is "a very serious indicator."
According to the chief aviation - Deputy Commander in Chief of the Air Force for Aviation, Hero of Russia Colonel Sergei Kobylash, Su-30SM will significantly increase the combat capabilities of the Russian Air Force, as its ability to simultaneously detect and defeat several targets and super maneuverability are unique. Fighters will enter the Air Force as a whole squadron.

The creators claim that it is possible to master the piloting of fighters, even 5-th generation.
