Sukhoi Superjet 100 Obtains IAC AR Type Certificate

Russian Certification Authority Clears Aircraft For Operation

The Sukhoi Superjet 100 Type Certificate was presented Thursday by the Russian Certification Authority IAC AR. The Official Ceremony was held at the Interstate Aviation Committee Aviation Register (IAC AR) Headquarters in Moscow in the presence of the Minister of Industry of Russia, Mr. Victor Khristenko.

Sukhoi Superjet During Flight Testing

The Type Certificate confirms compliance of the SSJ100 with airworthiness regulations and it authorizes the commercial operation of the airplane.

The certification campaign incorporated approximately 200 individual static, fatigue and flight tests. The flight campaign included 25 special tests within the aircraft's operational range.

The certification campaign was accomplished using four prototypes for flight testing and two prototypes for static and fatigue trials. Four flying jets have accumulated 2,594 flight hours in 1,087 flights. During its certification, the aircraft visited over 20 airports in Russia, CIS and Europe. In all, 15 pilots from Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, IAC AR, EASA and Russian certification centers flew the SSJ100, and all said they were impressed by its handling qualities and pilot-friendly flight deck. During the tests the aircraft exceeded the ICAO CAEP 6 noise and emissions requirements.

The Sukhoi Superjet 100 is the first Russian aircraft to complete the full scope of the certification HIRF testing in Italy, in collaboration with Alenia Aeronautica. These tests were required to demonstrate that the aircraft's on-board systems, as well as electric and electronic equipments are not influenced by any external electromagnetic fields.

During the certification campaign the aircraft has completed the stringent program of certification which checked all the aircraft systems and the airframe well beyond the operational limits to be sure the passenger airplane meets all the airworthiness directives.

The EASA certification is expected to follow in 2011.
