The Sukhoi Superjet 100 landed in Italy for the first time at Torino Caselle Airport. The aircraft (prototype SN 950004) took off from the Flight Test Center in Zhukovsky (Moscow) to continue the flight certification campaign. The aircraft was operated by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft’s test pilots Yablontsev Alexander, Korostiev Sergey, Shvetsov Oleg and Gryukanov Maksim.

The third prototype SN 950004 will be involved in several tests, including noise community and high intensity radiated field tests.

These tests will be accomplished in Caselle and Levaldigi airports.

Under the certification campaign the prototype will be subjected to an evaluation of the Electro Magnetic Compatibility requirements for civil aircraft with regard to the ability of operating safely in the man-made electromagnetic environment.

The community noise tests are required to verify the compliance with aircraft noise certification regulations by measuring the airplane noise.

The SSJ100 certification campaign is going on very well. So far, the Program accumulated over 2011 flying hours in 814 flights, which is about 70% of the overall certification program, including the most critical tests. The SSJ100 has successfully passed a series of testing in extreme weather conditions (Yakutsk, Arkhangelsk) and high elevation program in Gmuri (Armenia). This confirms that no additional changes to the airplane in basic configuration are required.

At the moment there are 18 serial aircraft in production at different stages of completion, 6 of which are at the final assembly shop.

Today it’s proven that the Sukhoi Superjet 100 is a new generation product which offers to Customers a perfect combination of regional aircraft efficiency with the mainline level of comfort for passengers and state-of-the art technologies.
