The third Sukhoi Superjet 100 prototype arrived to Flight-test center in Zhukovsky

Today at 15.06 the third Sukhoi Superjet 100 prototype arrived to Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company's Flight-test center in Zhukovsky (Moscow Region). The flight was performed upon completion of a series of flights at Komsomolsk (Russian Far East) and painting.

The aircraft, which performed the first flight on July 25, 2009 in less than two and a half weeks, made a one-day travel with a transit stop at Novosibirsk. The crew members shifted at Novosibirsk, where the aircraft landed for refueling at 9.20 local time. Nikolay Pushenko, who captained the first leg, was replaced by Sergey Korostiev, while Andrey Kourov, another test-pilot of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company co-piloted both legs of the flight. After two hours used for a crew break and refueling, the aircraft continued its way to Moscow.

Upon installation of the passenger seats Sukhoi Superjet 100 SN 95004 will take its place at the static display of MAKS airshow, supplementing the flight display of SSJ100 SN95003. This will allow the airlines representatives to see the aircraft in the configuration similar to the operational one. Together with the interior and passenger seats, the aircraft will also feature the passenger cabin equipment, as well as certification ready avionics suite, including options specified by the current contracts and options catalogue.
