TsAGI confirms SSJ100 fuselage's compliance with EASA requirements

Tests performed at TsAGI (Central Aerohydrodynamics Institute in Zhukovksy, Moscow) at the end of October 2011 confirmed the static strength of the fuselage of the SSJ100 aircraft in accordance with aviation rules CS-25 of EASA Certification (European Aviation Safety Agency).

In the frame of additional certification static tests, the cabin of the SSJ100 prototype MSN 95002 was loaded with extra internal pressure. The fuselage withstood the ultimate pressure load which nearly doubled the operational one. Tests confirmed the SSJ100 expected strenght performance. Namely, the aircraft proved to meet the additional requirements of EASA in terms of static strength.

"The results granted to timely prepare the final report on the EASA certification program. The European certification will allow not only to start the commercial operations of the SSJ100 by western airlines, but also to boost the SSJ100 sales worldwide", - said Sukhoi Civil Aircraft first Vice-president for design and certification Igor Vinogradov.

"These tests represent a great milestone, both in terms of the SSJ100 aircraft development, and new methods of static strength testing. For these specific tests a new dedicated experimental facility was established in TsAGI and the SSJ100 fuselage was equipped with special explosive protection system", - said TsAGI Deputy Director General Mikhail Zichenkov.

The static tests on the SSJ100 fuselage accomplished at TsAGI Institute represent a major step ahead in the achievement of EASA Certification.
