Sukhoi Superjet 100 also known as SSJ 100. The family of Sukhoi Superjet 100 is composed of two passenger planes 75 and 95 seats (may vary depending on the layout of the passenger compartment) in the configuration of the base range (SSJ100/75B and SSJ100/95B) and extended range (SSJ100/75LR, SSJ100/95LR). The variants of the aircraft manufacturing business to the configuration and VIP-class, as well as the increased length of the fuselage and passenger capacity.

The development of the SSJ 100

The first flight of regional passenger aircraft ” Sukhoi Superjet-100 “was held May 19, 2008. The event, which is so eagerly waited for the entire Russian society, and which was postponed several times, was surprisingly modest. It looked so confusing, especially given the rampant commercial aircraft, which for several years in Russia and abroad, leading to a developer – JSC “Sukhoi Civil Aircraft” (GSS).
SSJ-100 creates a fundamentally new managerial and technological structure formed on the Western model, and bears the character of the market. GSS – a subsidiary holding company “Dry”, which is specially designed for the SSJ-100. She took full responsibility for the entire life cycle of the product: design and development, sales and marketing, certification, production and after-sales service.
The assembly is carried out in the city of Komsomolsk-na-Amur in the CF CJSC “Sukhoi Civil Aircraft” with the participation of JSC “KNAAPO.” According to official figures, the cost of development as of 2008 amounted to approximately 100 SSJ $ 1.4 billion. This amount does not include the cost of developing the engine.
We can not keep silent about another important aspect of the program of the SSJ-100. “Under her” a number of Russian companies for the first time in the past two decades, managed to get funds to upgrade the order of dilapidated machinery equipment. This was as direct budgetary infusions and borrowings. Thus, according to Director General of AHK “Sukhoi” Mikhail Pogosyan, only plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur (KNAAPO), where it will undergo final assembly production machines, has already invested 50 million USD. With this money the company has become the latest machines made in Japan.

At present, in varying degrees of readiness in the production are 17 production aircraft, five of which – in the final assembly shop. The first production aircraft Sukhoi Superjet 100 # 95007 passed on FOX and will soon rise into the sky. The second production aircraft # 95 008, which replenish the fleet of “Aeroflot”, completed installation of the systems, after which the ship will send to the testing of systems under shock.

In May 2010 President Alexei Fyodorov, UAC in an interview with the delivery announced in late 2010. The first customers will be “Aeroflot” and Armavia. The postponement stems from the fact that the certification of engines require more time than planned. [20] In May, the final assembly shop at the KnAAPO fuselages were five cars without engines.
On June 23 engines certificate was obtained EASA. NPO “Saturn” to the end of 2010 plans to deliver 13 engines and 33 SaM146 engine in 2011 with a possible increase of up to 48 engines.

For a similar reason is questionable contract with FLC. The question on the possibility of renewal of these contracts to the company or its subsidiaries Rosavia Aeroflot, who will inherit the assets of bankrupt aviapervozchikov.
