There is a thread started for this but it was locked, why I don't know. Anyway, finally some good new for Sukhoi and Alenia, 99% reliability is not to shabby for new aircraft:

http://airinsight.com/2013/10/29/sup...source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

“Passengers are very happy with the aircraft. The SSJ100 is confirming its superior aerodynamics and outstanding performance. We are very proud of the new SSJ100: it is currently the only regional aircraft with a 5 abreast configuration enabling mainline comfort with reduced operating costs and the flexibility of a regional jet to be operated in small airports; the SSJ100 is a key choice for Interjet’s development plan focused on serving Mexico’s domestic mid-density routes as well as some short-haul international ones” says Jose Luis Garza, CEO Interjet.

The SSJ is an interesting aircraft. The fuel burn penalties for not being near your optimum altitude is horrendous! In standard config, full pax, 200NM alternate & 30mins hold, you still have about 4 tons to spare to your MLW... so it's a useful cargo hauler too. The downside is that the approach speed at MLW is about 147 knots (Vref 142 giving Vapp of 147 at no wind), this is why one needs 1600m as minimum runway to dispatch the plane into...

I talked to some of the crew at Sky Aviation here, their SSJ crew seem to love it,,,

Good news for the program, which IMO really needs to deliver more aircraft to airlines out there, to have more exposure to more customers and regions. Having a broad customer and aircraft base helps in discovering and troubleshooting issues - and the current 20ish aircraft is not exactly a large statistical base.

Sukhoi has issued a press release on the good reliability at Interjet as well:
http://www.superjetinternational.com...100-confirm-successful-operations/

After 4 weeks of operation, 99.03% dispatch reliability and 9.74hrs average daily utilization. 600 flight hrs and 580 cycles accumulated. Max daily utilization was 11hrs.

Interesting.

If Sukhoi can maintain a good experience for one first-world carrier (and I think doing so in the western hemisphere is a psychological benefit), perhaps hey can break further into the market.

SNA seems to me, to be to far for the SSJ100 even from GDL. 4O best International route for this airplane seems to be MEX-SAT on a double daily basis. The A320 has to much capacity and with FL and 5D on the route flying 73G and E190s or E145s.

In the first delivery, the SSJ made 2 stops between BGR and TLC; as of second delivery Sukhoi realized the aircraft can make it nonstop.

Don't know how this all shakes out, but perhaps performance out of SNA would provide hurdles at high weights?

Well, all aircraft have troubles at SNA at high weights due to the short runway. But, any routes that the SSJ operates out of SNA (if they do) would be short hops to maybe TIJ, or HMO.

Thanks, what was obvious was how wide and comfortable the cabin was, the aisle was wide enough for him to pass the service cart when going to the wc, it is 3.27m wide and the Cseries is 3.28m. They will establish a new comfort level for a 5 abreast short hauler.

The major difference between the SSJ and the Cseries will be fuel burn as the engines burn 15% more fuel, they have the spec of a CFM5-7B.

The Sam146 is rather similar to CF34-10, both should be at TSFC 0.65 installed (Snecma gives the Sam146 as 0.63 uninstalled and GE the CF at 0.64), the PW1500G is in another class at around 0.55-56 installed. The Sam146 has a BPR of 4.4 and the CF34-10 5 but the PW1500 is norht of 10 at about 12-13, so very different engines and the GTF is about 15% better.

It looses bypass ratio to 9 as the fan i cropped, Wiki says it will loose 3% due to this, I would believe it, so the MRJ version would be at about about 0.58 where you also find bigger engines like T700, CF6-80E, PW 4168 etc.

But the Superjet was designed to fit larger diameter engines as well. So we may see a GTF Superjet as well. And don't forget, since they qill not build the shorter version, we will see the (130 pax?) strech hopefully soon! And from my IL9 ride this year I could learn how great Russian designes can be!!!

It seems that the SSJ is also miles ahead of the An-148/158, even thoug it is a nice ride as well. I've been on those several times, and they are WAY more comfortable than the older 735s and the Embraers, but from the economical side they are not so appealing...

I don't think the AN-148 is that far behind on at least the fuel burn side, the deficit is then mostly on the aero side I guess as the Progress powerplant is in the same class as Sam146 and CRF34-10, TSFC on the test bench 0.63. The TBO might be another thing though   .

The main issue is the SAM146 missed promised fuel burn. The engine direly needs a PIP. But that won't happen until a few hundred aircraft are sold. Chicken and the egg...

I truly hope this a real shot in the arm of Superjet and that it also sorts some of the who does what issues they have been having. Seems the italian designed interior is getting high marks, also the support side seems to have geared up to the right level. Let it just continue like this and we will gradually have another player in the world market.

The Russians have a much better situation then the Chinense when it comes to know how and experience, they just needs to get them selves organised and going in the right direction. This might show the way.

Per my sources 4%. Low bypass ratios are more optimal on shorter missions. It was a compromise designed to improve the SSJ's resale values later in life.

Source? I have Pratt contacts and *none* believe that to be the case. The SSJ will live and die off the SAM146 and growth of that engine. They will have right of first refusal.

News release about third delivery. Sukhoi highlights the superior performance and reliability of the 2 SSJ already in service:


Third Sukhoi Superjet 100 delivered to Interjet

November 6, 2013

On November 6, 2013 the third Sukhoi Superjet 100 for the Mexican airline Interjet landed in Toluca (Mexico) to join the other two SSJ100 already in service with the airline. The aircraft was rolled out from SuperJet International’s hangar in Venice (Italy) upon completion of customization and technical acceptance procedure on November 5, 2013. On the same day, the SSJ100, registered XA-JLV, took off from Venice Marco Polo airport for the ferry flight to Toluca (Mexico).

The airplane MSN 95028, flown by Interjet crew, during its ferry flight made technical stops in Keflyavik (Iceland) and Bangor (Maine, USA), then flew directly to Toluca (Mexico), thus confirming its outstanding performance on longer range routes.

“I am really proud because another new step has been done – states Nazario Cauceglia, Chief Executive Officer of SuperJet International – Another SSJ100 is now flying in the Americas and it is determined to become a competitive player in the regional segment. With more than two years in operations, the SSJ100 is proving to merge into a single product the comfort of a narrow-body with the reduced costs and flexibility of a regional jet”.

The first two SSJ100 currently in service with Interjet are confirming an outstanding performance with over 99% dispatch reliability and an average daily utilization of 9 flight hours.

The fourth aircraft to be delivered to Interjet (MSN 95036) is currently under completion at SuperJet International’s plant in Italy.

The SSJ100 is a state-of-the-art regional jet developed and built by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC), in partnership with Alenia Aermacchi. It incorporates the most modern Western technology and systems together with high standards of comfort available in the 100-seats segment. Interjet ordered 20 SSJ100 plus 10 options in the 93-seats (34’ pitch) configuration. The exclusive and comfortable interior are designed by Italian Company Pininfarina.

According to the article, the 4th SSJ is underway, hope that plane joins 4O fleet before year end...

There's a problem to this "more optimal on shorter missions" thing... The darned jet burns 1.8 - 2 tons an hour cruise at FL280 at 41Tons GW (MLW)... if you wanna fly it under RVSM continuously, it's a damn expensive game to play. But yes, the fuel burn on longer legs is err... yeah, no matter how much spin you put on it.. the numbers speak for itself...

Unfortunately, I don't have E190 / CRJ900 / 1000 to compare this aircraft with...

Indeed, which is why I think that Sukhoi's main priority should be to get as many aircraft delivered out there as possible. A larger in-service aircraft base will help them identify & troubleshoot problems faster, help develop their support business, promote the aircraft and help sales, help the business case for PIP's & upgrades... basically everything!

Sukhoi has managed to build an overall good aircraft IMO, putting away with the old image of unrealiable Russian airplanes. But it seems they haven't yet tackled the other "typical Russian" issue - production ramp-up! Let's hope that they eventually manage that..

Yep. The engine and airframe are optimized differently: airframe for high altitude cruise, engines for climb... what mission was Sukhoi aiming for?!?

That we agree. Hey, I work for a company making a profit off every SSJ sold, so for job security, I'm all for selling them.   But they have to sell to sell... Its tough cracking into the market.

Quoting ferpe (Reply 46):

The SSJ is 7,000lbm heavier than the E-175 and since scope clauses at the US airlines limit the seat count to 76, the plane will have trouble competing when designed for 86...

This is an interesting question indeed. It makes a nice replacement for the F100, but its scope is limited by the engine vs airframe dilemma. The flight planning numbers does point at 200-400nm sectors as it's optimum profile... and packs a lot of payload (not seats) for the fuel burn numbers. It's probably kinda like the 717... although whenever I see the documents it looks like an A317!    (and no, that's not a typo!)

Quoting lightsaber (Reply 51):

Indeed. I'm studying its performance numbers & economics for use in my geographical area, and it's good and bad at the same time. It's a tough mystery to crack on where to use this airplane where it won't get trodden on by mainline narrowbodies.

I wonder if Sukhoi would feel offended if I ask for some SU95Freighters

Not necessarily. With the SSJ 130 more or less on the way, an alternative engine has to be found. The PD-10, derived from the PD-14 to be used on the MS-21, is a possibility:

Other sources claim a PW1500G derivative is the most likely option.



Exceptions confirm the rule.

Its possible it will be just a growth of the SAM146. If any PW1000G it would be the 1500/1900G.
I hope any SSJ 130 fixes the mixed optimization (which means non-optimized) missions of the wing/engine of the SSJ.

I think slapping a GTF on the SSJ130 will make it extremely attractive from the economics point of view...
And the SSJ100 will need a bigger fan on the Sam146s! Seriously, I cringe looking at the fuel burn numbers beyond 800nm!

Do you have numbers for comparisons? 800nm is marginal for design range.

While I'd like to see another GTF platform, I am just not as enthusiastic about a re-engine of the SSJ. It wouldn't be trivial and much of the airframe's issues have been dispatch reliability.

The downside is that the approach speed at MLW is about 147 knots

That must make for interesting groundspeeds during landing at MEX... Especially for such a small aircraft.
This kind of landing speed is jumbo jet territory.

I see it as an attempt to create a Russian EADS. The idea itself makes sense, but they'll need time. But just remember the beginnings of the Airbus consortium, or later of EADS. It was not really until the A380 wiring fiasco hit them that they finally started working together as a true single company rather than a loose consortium under a common name.

Wouldn't that be their second? They received their 1st in august AFAIK.

In related news, MUC airport facebook site announced that Moskovia will be serving the airport with the SSJ from december. So it seems that they will be receiving their aircraft (said to be ex-Armavia) soon.
