Sukhoi Superjet 100 Receives EASA Certification

The Russian Regional Jet – Sukhoi Superjet 100

Regional Jets designed for the 70 to 100 seat market are in demand and when it comes to passenger experience, comfort and space is important.  Sukhoi of Russia is joining the ranks of Canada’s Bombardier and Brazil’s Embraer when it comes to production of such aircraft with the release of the Sukhoi SuperJet 100 (SSJ100).

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has certified the Sukhoi SuperJet 100 (RRJ-95B) with an A-176 certification; this recognizes the SSJ100 aircraft complies with EASA strict airworthiness and environmental requirements.  While the aircraft has not been sold to a US carrier, we believe the SSJ100 would also obtain FAA certification without problem.

The new A-176 validation allows nations using EASA regulations as reference standard to accept and allow operations of the SSJ100 (RRK-95B) aircraft.

The validation allows European airlines and carriers operating in countries using EASA regulations as reference standard, accept and operate the SSJ100 (RRJ-95B) aircraft.  The Sukhoi Superjet 100 represents the first Russian passenger aircraft certified according to EASA CS-25.

Seating inside the Sukhoi SuperJet 100 is in a 2×3 layout and Sukhoi touts the cabin provides more space than competing aircraft such as the CRJ-900 (CR9).

Airlines who have ordered the Sukhoi SuperJet 100 include Aeroflot, Armavia, Kartika Airlines, Kyrgyzstan Airlines, Kuban Airlines, Moskovia Airlines, Sky Aviation, and Transaero. In North America, The Mexican budget airline Interjet has purchased the aircraft to compliment their A320 fleet and US based Willis Lease Finance has ordered up-to 10 SSJ aircraft.

The Sukhoi SuperJet is just the right size for the popular 70 to 100 seat market where aircraft are in high demand.
