Anyone see any hope with Alliance Aircraft? Just today Sukkhoi announced plans to pull out of the deal with alliance! What do you think?



Kind Regards,

I too hope that Alliance Aircraft is able to produce aircraft. I don't know how Sukhoi's decision will effect the business plan though. Supposedly they have over 500 orders for their family of aircraft. They still have a long way to go though before we see an Alliance airplane take to the air. As an American, it would be good to see a U.S. manufactured regional jet!

Is Alliance a Russia manufacturer?

I have to tell you that I think the aircraft in Teahan's post is very good looking. Please, let the company move forward and one day produce aircraft

It seems that the company is bankrupt :-( This is not news to my ears. Does anyone have any further information?

Here is an article I found in Reuters.Russia Sukhoi ditches U.S. passenger jet project

MOSCOW, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Russia's fighter-jet maker Sukhoi said on Tuesday it was pulling out of a deal with U.S.-based startup venture Alliance Aircraft Corp. to jointly produce its first civilian passenger plane.

Sukhoi said in June that it hoped to begin joint production of the StarLiner by 2003. Alliance's CEO Earl Robinson told Reuters at the time that a letter of intent for 30 aircraft had already been signed.

Sukhoi spokesman Yuri Chervakov told Reuters that months of talks on a new family of 50-110 seat regional airliners had failed to provide results and it had finally decided to abandon the project late last week.

``We gave up on the project because we were not satisfied with the conditions being offered,'' Chervakov said. ``We will not consider returning to it.''

He gave no other details about the decision.

The programme would have added a fourth manufacturer of regional jets to a burgeoning market dominated by Canada's Bombardier Inc. (Toronto:BBDa.TO - news) (Toronto:BBDb.TO - news), followed by Embracer (NYSE:ERJ - news) and Fairchild Dornier.

Chervakov added Sukhoi had not given up on intentions to produce a civilian aircraft of its own. The firm is working toward beginning production of a business jet by 2010.

That Alliance Aircraft is complete BS. There 500 orders are from Legacy Airlines, Global Airlines, and other well-respected highly financed start-ups.

I also believe that the 500 aircraft ordered where complete BS. My main concern is with the aircraft manufacturer itself. Where does the company currently stand? I think that their aircraft designs were good and I also liked the way they looked.

...a burgeoning market dominated by Canada's Bombardier Inc...followed by Embracer...and Fairchild Dornier.

Embracer, hm? "Our aircraft keep a tight hold" 

I don't think Alliance would make it even if they could get off the ground so to speak. Bombardier and Embraer hold too much of the market already...Look at how many CRJs and ERJs you see compared to 328Jets.
