Ground And Flight Testing Submitted To Certifying Agency
The Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) aircraft has successfully
completed additional certification trials in expanded operational
conditions for high altitude airports. The tests were conducted
with SSJ100 flight prototype MSN95004, and took place at the
airport of Toluca, Mexico, from September 14-30. The airport
elevation is 8,464 feet (2,580 meters).
Extensive ground and flight tests were conducted to evaluate the
proper functioning of the aircraft systems, equipment, engines and
APU, as well as to confirm the declared takeoff and landing
performance. Sukhoi says the report on the additional high altitude
trials is being completed, and will be submitted to the Aviation
Register of the Interstate Aviation Committee in application for a
supplement to the SSJ100 Type Certificate.
In Toluca, the SSJ100 aircraft was shown to the president and
management of Interjet Airlines of Mexico, which ordered 15 of the
jets in January 2011. The aircraft came back to airfield of
Zhukovsky, Moscow Region, Russia, on October 10.
