Sukhoi Superjet Any New Development?

Thu Oct 25, 2007 11:22 pm

It's been a month since the roll-out of the SSJ, and I've heard no news on developments. How's the program progressing? Have any tests been performed leading up to the first flight?

No news indeed about the developments, but the first flight is scheduled for this year.

Other news:

- Makers of the new Russian Superjet airliner said Thursday that they planned to sell 1,800 of the midsize aircraft in 20 years.

- Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, a subsidiary of Sukhoi, and Russia's state-run bank, Sberbank, have agreed a 10-year loan worth 100 million euros ($134 mln) to finance the SuperJet 100 regional aircraft.

Sukhoi Civil Aircraft is forecasting that the break-even point for the Superjet 100 (SSJ) regional jet programme will be reached in 2012 on the back of 180 aircraft sales.

Chief financial officer Maxim Grishanin says it is estimated that "payback point" will be reached by 2015 with 350 sales. "In any programme payback point is between 300 and 400 sales," he said at an FT Executive Briefing called "Investing in the Sukhoi Superjet 100", held in London on 24 October.
