The most recent I found, is that:

Quote:
President Vladimir Putin has authorized Italy's Alenia Aeronautica to acquire a blocking stake of 25% plus one share in a subsidiary of Russian aircraft maker Sukhoi, the Kremlin said on Monday.
Alenia Aeronautica, the Russian state-owned aircraft manufacturer's strategic partner in a project to build a new family of Russian regional jets, named Sukhoi SuperJet-100, is seeking a blocking stake in Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, a subsidiary founded in 2000 to implement civilian projects.
In the summer of 2007, Sukhoi and Alenia set up a joint venture to promote the new aircraft on developed markets and provide post-sale customer service around the world. Sukhoi SuperJet-100's serial production is scheduled to start this year.
A source close to the deal said the Italian plane maker would invest around $200 million in the company in 2008, and provide guarantees for loans for the project.

However, the main question is: when will the first flight take place (was scheduled for December last year)? Are even the Russian manufactuars going to dissapoint us repeatedly with delays?  Wink

Sukhoi Superjet 100 flight-testing could be delayed until the middle of the year, with programme managers blaming the hold-up partly on the powerplant's test effort, which is behind schedule.

That's a pity! Hopefully, they can still finish the certification of the engine and the aircraft this year and deliver the first Superjet to launch customer Aeroflot by year-end.

The first flight is currently "officially" scheduled for February, but is widely expected to actually happen in March-April. It is still possible that Sukhoi may deliver the first planes to SU before the end of 2008, although 2009 now seems more likely...

Good news: more potential buyers of the SSJ-100:

Quote:
MOSCOW, January 31 (RIA Novosti) - The Sukhoi aircraft maker is holding talks with potential buyers to sell 150 new Sukhoi SuperJet-100 aircraft, the company general director said Thursday.

Pogosyan said Sukhoi has 73 confirmed contracts.

I'm surprised at the overall lack of news right now, after all the hype when it rolled out. All I know is that apparently, there were problems integrating the modern, western-design engine onto the soviet-design Il-76 testbed. These have been solved by now, but it has delayed engine testing and therefore also the first flight.

Let's try to keep this thread alive with any news that might come up.

French magazine Air & Cosmos reports this week that the Superjet is almost ready to go and that 1st flight could happen as early as february 20th...

This seems a bit too soon to me considering we haven't heard any news at all for a while, and you would expect a date like that to be announced by Sukhoi in advance.

The problem with monthly magazines is that from the time they get information to the time that the magazine gets into the hands of the public up to a month or more can sometimes pass... and the information may have changed in that time period.

Me too. Unfortunately with the shaky relations between the U.S. and Russia, I doubt any order for the Superjet is likely. However Boeing is helping Sukhoi, so you never know.  eyebrow

Russia's Sukhoi aircraft manufacturer has successfully tested engines on its first SuperJet-100 regional aircraft.

Quote:
"The new SaM-146 engines have undergone successful 'dry run' tests on the first SuperJet-100 plane as a step in the preparation for its maiden flight," a Sukhoi Civil Aircraft spokesman said at the Singapore Air Show.

A Sukhoi official said last year that successful tests of the engine would allow Sukhoi to start mass production of the plane simultaneously with its certification in 2008.

Source: http://en.rian.ru/russia/20080221/99749260.html

First delivery will probably be early next year.

Quote:
Sukhoi will export more than 40 fighter jets this year, Pogosyan said. In the future, most of the company's revenue should come from commercial planes such as the 75- to 95-seat SuperJet under development, he added.

SuperJet-100 will be delivered to the first customer, OAO Aeroflot, late this year or early next year. Sukhoi is considering a 115-seat version and may make a 130-seater, the CEO said.

The dry run test was actually performed 2 days ago. Yesterday late in the evening local time left engine and APU were succesfully started and ran for 40 minutes as one insider reported at one of Russian aviation discussion boards. It is expected that both engines will be started in few days.

Russia wouldn't turn down or interfere with a serious order from the U.S. It would be the opportunity of a lifetime if an American carrier took interest in a Russian product. After all the first thing politicians care about is money, especially in the form of exports.

The S100 is intended to compete with the CRJs and E-Jets. The real problem for the S100 is the longer the thing is delayed, the more likely it is to wind upcompeting against the MRJ and CSeries, and potentially even the low end of Y1 and NSR.
