Sukhoi SuperJet getting ready for take-off
Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company and its partners carry on with the preparations for launching the trials of the SuperJet 100 regional airliner. The Novosibirsk Aircraft Production Association made the nose and tail sections of the fuselage and shipped them to KnAAPO for assembly of the SuperJet’s first flying prototype (aircraft No 95001). NAPO is completing the manufacture of one more section slated to go to Komsomolsk-on-Amur soon, where the main fuselage sections and the wing are being made and where the airliner is to undergo final assembly. Rollout of the aircraft No 95001 is scheduled for September this year, with the flight tests to follow.
Meanwhile, in Zhukovsky, TsAGI is finalising the assembly and static test preparations of the first SuperJet 100 static airframe (aircraft 95001) built by KnAAPO in cooperation with NAPO by the beginning of this year and flown to Zhukovsky by a Ruslan An-124 transport on 28 January.
Engine makers are gearing up for the SuperJet-100’s tests too. A unique open test bench – the only bench like that in Europe – was commissioned at Saturn’s pad in Poluyevo near the city of Rybinsk. It will be used for conducting the whole range of certification and acceptance tests of the SaM146 engine under joint development by Russia’s NPO Saturn and Snecma (Safran group, France), including such complicated tests as side wind simulation, water, hail and ice ingestion, etc. Soon, the SaM146 is to begin its flight tests on board the Il-76LL flying testbed being prepared by Gromov LII. The first flight of the testbed fitted with the SaM146 is expected in July. Vladimir Karnozov covers the newest events in SuperJet programme

Cuban vector of Russian aircraft industry
The delivery of the first two Ilyushin Il-96-300 long-haul airliners to Cuba in December 2005 and February 2006 was followed by Russian leasing company Ilyushin Finance Co.’s making a new deal with the Cuban government last year for new Il-96 and Tu-204 family aircraft to be built by Russian manufacturing plants for the Cubana Aviacion airline. The third Il-96-300 intended for Cuba was shipped to the customer very late last year – on 30 December. Not long before that, the Aviastar-SP plant in Ulyanovsk had completed the lead Cuban Tupolev Tu-204 built in the Tu-204CE cargo version. It has conducted its maiden flight on 19 December 2006. Late in May, it completed the full set of certification tests and now is being prepared for shipping to the customer.

A step away from the fifth generation

The Sukhoi company pins its near future at the global fighter market on the advent of the Su-35 super-manoeuvrable multirole fighter – a heavily upgraded Flanker-family member intended to fill the gap between various today’s versions of the Su-30MK fighter and a fifth-generation aircraft whose deliveries might kick off in the later 2010s. “The Su-35 is a Generation 4++ aircraft embodying numerous Gen. 5 technologies. They ensure the Su-35’s superiority over all other Gen. 4 fighters under development throughout the world. During 2009–2015, the cutting-edge technologies will make the Su-35 superior to all future multifunction fighters on the global market”, Sukhoi officials say. The plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur is now building three Su-35 prototypes the first of which is due to kick off its flight trials as early as this summer. What kind of aircraft is the latest fighter and how does it differ from the Su-27 and Su-30 that are all the rage nowadays? Andrey Fomin tries to answer these questions
