Sukhoi Superjet 100 Aircraft Family
October 12, 2007 12:57

Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft family is often called the "hope" of Russian aviation. The first ever flight of the aircraft is expected to take place at the end of 2007. Here is a quick overview of the main aircraft`s characteristics.

The family of Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft’s development is based on the principles of maximum standardization of frame assemblies and systems, in particular: wings, fins, chassis, powerplant, crew cabin, basic aircraft systems and component parts. The unification of the design is expected to make it possible to improve the economic performance of the aircraft family operation with expenses kept at a rational level.

The aerodynamics and design of the aircraft of the family are based on the proven advanced technologies for minimizing technical risks at the stage of design, testing and operation. For widening the potential customers` base among airlines, each of the 2 standard sizes of the aircraft of the family (for 75 and 95 seats) has a basic and a LR modification designed for being used on a network of various-distance routes to make it possible for airlines to improve their economic performance of their operations through a more balanced proportion of their fleets based on the route structure and passenger traffic.

The Superjet 100 aircraft family conforms to current and long-range requirements of the Russian and global markets of commercial aircraft. The design meets the specific requirements of airlines in Russia, the CIS, and the western countries, and conforms to the Aviation Rules AP-25, FAR-25, JAR-25 requirements.

The Superjet 100 family aircraft conform to the ground noise level requirements under ICAO Chapter 4 and FAR 36 Section 4 standards that came into force 2006. The M&R system provides the annual up time up to 3,600 FH

Aircraft frame design service life spin:

basic: 70,000 FH, 70,000 takeoff and landing cycles

LR: 70,000FH, 70,000 takeoff and landing cycles.

Engine design service life spin:

till first wing dismounting: 16,000 FH.

total life spin: 36,000FH.

The aftersales support of the Superjet 100 aircraft family is based on the most modern principles being common in world practices. Compatibility with 99% of the class A, B and C aerodrome profiles in Russia and the CIS.

The aircraft’s interior was designed to provide a comfortable environment for passengers and onboard service, and includes capacious seats and aisle. The 3+2 cabin seating arrangement makes it possible for airlines to offer a high comfort level and eliminates "bottlenecks", which is important for passengers of more-than-an-hour flights.

The height and broadness of the cabin provides more comfort, as it accommodates wider seats and a wider aisle. Passengers are provided with additional comfort as there is more space for their feet under the seats and more "living" space around their heads in window seats.

The overhead compartments have the largest capacity available on the aircraft of this class, without any loss of the living space available to passengers. The aircraft’s dimensions make it possible for each airline to engineer its own optimal passenger cabin’s configuration based on a wide range of accommodation options in terms of a number and arrangement of seats both in business and economy classes, the line-up of galley equipment, and the installation of an extra toilet room and other facilities.
