The fourth Sukhoi Superjet 100 joins the flight certification campaign

Today the fourth SSJ100 prototype SN 95005 has taken to the skies.

The aircraft was captained by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft's test pilots Sergey Korostiev and Alexander Ivanov. During a 2 hour and 45 minute flight, the pilot crew was able to examine systems integrity and performance as well as their readiness towards certification trials.

Sukhoi Superjet 100 SN 95005 has embraced all modifications entailed by the certification tests to perfectly match the final standard certificate configuration of the aircraft.

Under the certification campaign, SSJ100 prototype SN 95005 will undergo a complex evaluation of onboard equipment and avionics as well as failure safety tests. Moreover, this aircraft will see fire protection and inert gas system testing. Furthermore, Sukhoi Superjet 100 SN 95005 will host the crew pilot trainings for our first customers. The first ever conference on crew trainings for Aeroflot took place in September 2009.

In order to provide a smooth and regular certification flight test pace and comply with the schedule aimed at the AR IAC Type certificate acquisition, the aircraft 95005 was powered with the engines that had been taken off the first flight prototype SSJ100 SN 95001. 95001 had completed the test campaign and delivered 280 flights.

Vladimir Prisyazhnyuk, President of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, says, "With another prototype in the certification program, we will be able to deliver 75 flights monthly, which is a very good figure in the global practice of flight certification campaigns. Provided that engines are certificated and delivered in due time, we will acquire the Type Certificate in middle 2010".
