SaM146 engine receives its Type Certificate from IAC AR

SaM146 engine has received Interstate Aviation Committee Aviation Register (IAC AR) Type Certificate. The Russian agency issued the official engine Type Certificate on August 13, 2010. The SaM146 is now certified for service in Russia on regional jet aircraft.

"We are particularly pleased to receive the approval of IAC AR for the SaM146 engine certification, just after the Type Certificate from European Aviation Safety Agency in June," said Jean-Paul Ebanga, Chairman and CEO of PowerJet. " First engine jointly designed and produced in France and in Russia, the SaM146 has achieved another major milestone. We are now looking forward to seeing the Sukhoi Superjet 100 powered by SaM146 engines enter revenue service in the next few months," he added.

The SaM146 completed its certification tests on May 26 by passing the final medium bird ingestion test. Throughout the certification test program, the SaM146's performance has fully met or exceeded expectations. The SaM146 engine has logged 7,400 hours of testing to date, including 3,600 hours in flight.

PowerJet is now focusing on the ramp-up in engine production, as well as gearing up for in-service support to ensure customer satisfaction.
