A new type (from a manufacturer that hasn't built a passenger carrying plane before) has entered the skies - the Sukhoi Superjet 100 entered service with Armavia, operating it's debut flight from Yerevan to Moscow, on April 21, 2011.

Anyone got any more info about the newest airliner to take to the skies? Meanwhile, congratulations to Sukhoi and the Russian aerospace industry for this achievement, and Armavia and the Armenian airline industry for this worldwide first.

I must agree, the Superjet seems to be a great aircraft, and i think the operators will be very satisfied with the aircraft.

There is one North American airline that purchased Superjets and I think that was Interjet of Mexico.

Has the Superjet received its FAA certification yet?

I agree. I hope some airline here in the US will give it try someday.

What are the planned routes? EVN-Moscow (Which airport?) and in the future, where else?


The 747 will always be the TRUE queen of the skies!

Congratulations to Sukhoi and Armavia! The SAS CEO Lindegaard expressed interest in the airplane as a good match for SAS. SAS really likes 5 across seating. But SAS ended up with a new CEO and the CRJ instead.

At last! Now let's hope service entry runs smoothly. The SSJ is a very good design on paper, if in-service experience validates the numbers, then the program's credibility will get an important boost.

What is the (approximate) EIS with SU ?

Well, Well.
Congrats to Sukhoy , Alenia and the other people involved in this project.
I hope that is successful like it is promising. I my country as well as Russia we need more jobs in the aviation industry and this might be a good point.
Now , let's talk a little about the aesthetics and the lines of this new aircraft.
It does seem to me "fat" like somebody was hinting. Just robust as I expect from people like Sukhoy and Alenia used to make airplanes for the most difficult tasks. Especially the nose/cockpit area looks to me very well done.
On the other side, it look to me a little low on the ground with the engines, thing that may preclude the installation of bigger (read GTF, LEAPX) turbofans in the future. Also I cannot believe that one new aircraft nowadays come out without any kind of winglets.
Looking to practically all the other it looks like it is an inexpensive way to improve performance, and that retrofitting them is possibly more expensive.

Congratulations to Sukhoi, Alenia, Boeing and all other partners in the SU9 project!

Here's some more information regarding the SU9: Superjet News? (by CEO@AFG Apr 10 2011 in Civil Aviation)

The SU9 is 33% cheaper compared to the CRJ1000 and Embraer190, its two competitors.

No one knows this for sure, but first flights are scheduled for June 1st, this date may of course be revised for the 10th (?) time. So far only 1 SU9 is in SU livery, and it is in UHKD currently I think.

Today the SU9 flew to Aleppo: http://www.zvartnots.am/pls/fldb/tt2...5913959&plang=ru&pdir=d&pid=336444

Congrats to all of RUS aviation supporters.
SU9 (or SU95) - it's still unclear what the final name is going to be - is in service.

It is in flight to/from Aleppo, Syria. There is a major Armenian community in Syria.
Good to see that Armavia assigns SU9 to various destinations.
