MOSCOW (BNS): The second T-50 PAK FA prototype will take to the skies in early 2011, United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) President Alexei Fyodorov said on Monday.

"It is important for us that the second prototype is a development of the first, not simply a repeat," Alexei Fyodorov, was quoted as saying in a RIA Novosti news report.

He also added that work is underway on the third prototype, incorporating even more advanced systems.

The first PAK FA has already made 40 flights. This new aircraft will enter into service with the Russian Air Force in 2015.
