Sukhoi Superjet 100 SN95003 lands at Shirak Airport, Gyumri, Armenia

At Gyumri SSJ100 will undergo a series of tests, assessing takeoff and landing performance as well as climb rate characteristics. These tests shall demonstrate the capability of the aircraft to sustain safe take off and landing, including missed approach in such complicated natural conditions. Besides, this test series is aimed at evaluation of main aircraft systems performance, while main focus will be on engine and auxiliary power unit operation.

Located at high altitudes (5000 ft/1524m), international Shirak Airport serves Gyumri — the second largest city of Armenia. Built in 1961, it has been upgraded in 2007 to meet ICAO First Class Airport requirements. It is peculiar for being clutched in the surrounding mountains and, hence, available for takeoff and landing only from the south. Its runway is 3220 m long, 45 m wide.
