The Salon Internationale de L'Aeronautique De L'espace has just started in Paris today and already Alenia Aerospace, part of the Finmeccanica Group, has signed some huge deals!
It is buying a 25 % stake in the Russian Aerospace firm Suhkoi and also signed a deal to build the Regional Jet Super 100 with Sukhoi.
The plane will be a 50-50 joint venture with both firms and it will compete with Embraer and Bombardier's regional jet.
Also, Alenia has just signed another huge deal with the US Army for 78 C27 Spartan transport planes worth over US$ 2 Billion!
Everyone at Finmeccanica is excited and say that there are more deals to come!
Now, if only the people at Aermacchi would take the 346 trainer and turn it into a world class fighter? Wishful thinking. Very Happy

Thanks for the post! As you mentioned to me in person, the C27J is the Alenia/Boeing version of the Fiat G.222, and its nice to see the USAF and Army adopting the plane.

I totally agree, wouldn't it be nice if the folks at Aermacchi scaled up the 346 to a fighter! I wouldn't be surpised if the current 346 could out fly the Typhoon.
