Excellence is the Standard
The Sukhoi Superjet 100 family represents the state-ofthe-art in its market sector and sets new benchmarks for 100-seat jet airliners.
• The advanced wing design permits cruise speeds up to Mach 0.81, perfect climb performance and steep approach capabilities
• A fully digital Fly-by-Wire system enhances performance
• Flight deck is Airbus 380-alike equipped, with two new generation side stick controllers and 5 LCD displays
• Innovative avionics reduce crew workload
The Sukhoi Superjet 100 flies at an optimal cruising speed
of Mach 0.78 and reaches an operating cruise altitude of
40,000 ft. The design range for SSJ 95 is 1,645 NM for the
Basic version and 2,470 NM for the Long Range version.
The aircraft family has been developed around standardised assemblies and systems, reducing costs and allowing further models to be developed. All models in the Sukhoi Superjet 100 family will have the same wings and same engines: two SaM146 turbo-fans from PowerJet, a joint venture between SNECMA of France and NPO Saturn of Russia.
This fuel-efficient engine offers fuel consumption significantly below all its competitors and important maintenance savings guaranteed by a considerably reduced parts count.
Comfort levels of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 family are comparable to those of large jets.
• Airlines can configure the passenger cabin for their needs with a wide range of options including the number and arrangement of seats in Business and Economy class, choice of galley equipment, extra toilet module and other features
• Seats, standing height and aisle can be more generous than in any other 100 seat aircraft
• The cabin is equipped with an LED enhanced lighting system
• Overhead compartments have the largest capacity available on aircraft of this class
As the result of many years of work by IAC AR, EASA and the Sukhoi Team, the Sukhoi SuperJet 100 is the first completely new aircraft platform built in Russia to achieve full international certification standards.
The Sukhoi Superjet 100 has successfully completed the certification campaign with more than 1,000 flights over 2,500 flight hours and approximately 200 programmes of static, fatigue and flight tests. Four prototypes for flight testing and two for static and fatigue trials confirmed that all aircraft systems and the airframe performed well beyond the operational limits to more than meet all airworthiness directives.
In February 2011, the aircraft received the Type Certificate by the Russian Certification Authority IAC AR, which confirmed compliance of the SSJ100 with airworthiness regulations and it authorised commercial operations of the airplane.
Taking to the skies
The first SSJ100 entered service with Armavia on April 21, 2011, just two days after delivery. The route of the first flight with 96 passengers aboard was Yerevan – Moscow (Sheremetyevo) – Yerevan.
During the first month of operation the aircraft totaled 66 flights and more than 168 hours, confirming its economic efficiency and operational capabilities, and suitability for both regional and short-haul routes.
We believe the potential market for aircraft in the regional jet class with 60-120 seats for the coming 20 years might be as many as 6,000 units. We are confident the Sukhoi Superjet 100 family will make a tremendous impact, gaining an important market share in the 100 seat sector.
