Over the past years AVIACENTER has developed its own approach to preparing investment projects, incorporating the best international practices and the current legal framework of the Russian Federation. All the successfully accomplished investment projects in Russia, such as airports in Saint Petersburg, Samara, Belgorod were developed with the participation of AVIACENTER experts. The largest banks allocate funds for investment projects developed and approved by AVIACENTER.

Since April 2013 a pilot project for developing regional air transport in Russia, developed by AVIACENTER, is being implemented.  The project has become the basis for implementing the systems of subsidizing and restoring regional air transport in Russia, the main subsidy mechanisms were optimized as part of the project. The Center also develops strategies for developing regional air transport, creating regional airlines in Russia and neighboring countries.
