Russian and Canadian pilots have completed flight testing of the Flight Management System (FMS) on the SSJ100

Together with Canadian and Russian certification authorities, Flight Testing of the CMA-9000 Flight Management System (FMS) was performed on the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100). The FMS is developed and manufactured by Esterline CMC Electronics (formerly known as Canadian Marconi Company) and integrated by Thales Avionics on the SSJ100.

"All activities required for the CAN-TSO certification of the CMA-9000 were successfully completed on the SSJ100", said Nick Chalkiadakis, FMS Program Manager from Esterline CMC Electronics. Canadian and Russian pilots performed 3 joint flights on SSJ100, as well as 6 sessions on the Electronic Bird test bench to evaluate the operational suitability of the system. In order to evaluate the system capability to follow the vertical trajectory, the experts conducted thorough checks of vertical navigation function. These verifications are required to ensure safety and aircraft performance in dense air traffic operations.

Transport Canada's Flight Test Division work with manufacturers to conduct, monitor and review flight tests of Canadian and foreign manufactured aircraft or avionics systems for which Canadian type certification is requested.

"Transport Canada participated in a successful flight test program with the cooperation of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company. We thank Sukhoi for their warm welcome and for working with us in completing this important Flight Management System certification activity," – said Waldemar Krolak and Michel Brulotte, Canadian certification authorities involved in the FMS flight testing.
