Sukhoi Superjet 100

SSJ-logo Originally known as the Russian Regional Jet, which was proposed in three models and six variants, the RRJ-60, RRJ-75 and RRJ-95; the aircraft was renamed as the Superjet 100 at the Farnborough air show in July 2006, at which time 60-seat model was dropped from the line up.

The remaining Superjet models, the 100-75 and 100-95 are the first Russian airliners designed from the outset to meet Western certification standards.

The aircraft is being developed by a Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC)-led team which includes Alenia (with a 25% +1 share stake in the programme), Beriev and Yakolev.

Boeing advised on marketing, certification and customer support and agreements have been signed with risk-sharing partners in the West, including; B/E Aerospace, Dowty, Goodrich, Hamilton Sundstrand, Honeywell, Liebherr, Messier-Dowty, Parker.

The 100-75 can accommodate 75 passengers in an all economy class, 5-abreast configuration at 32" seat pitch, complete with a forward galley and 2 lavatories. In a typical two-class configuration, 68 passengers could be accommodated, comprising 10 in business class, four-abreast at 35" pitch and 58 in economy class, five abreast at 30" pitch, complete with a forward galley and 3 lavatories.  Basic model Superjet 100-75s will be powered by Powerjet's modular SaM146 powerplant rated at 60.05 kN (13,500 lbst) take-off thrust.
