Sukhoi delivers first full-spec SSJ-100 to Aeroflot

Russian aircraft maker Sukhoi Civil Aircraft has delivered its first “full-specification” Sukhoi Superjet-100 (SSJ-100) to Aeroflot.
Aeroflot is the largest customer for the Superjet with a total order for 30 airliners, signed in 2005. Originally, these aircraft were ordered in standard specification – single class arrangement for 98 passenger seats, however later the airline decided to improve the aircraft specifications including the arrangement, passenger cabin equipment, and avionics.
Some changes requested by Aeroflot required further aircraft modifications. In order to avoid delivery delays, the parties agreed that the first 10 SSJ100 would be delivered to Aeroflot in “light” specification and later replaced by aircraft in “full” contract specification (“full”).
The delivery of the first ten SJ100 aircraft is financed by VEB-leasing JSC as part of the financial lease agreement concluded with Aeroflot in 2009. The first Sukhoi Superjet 100 was delivered to Aeroflot by the Ulyanovsk branch of VEB-leasing JSC.
Full and light specifications differ in several respects. The full specification aircraft includes an upgraded Flight Management System (FMS) and a weather radar equipped with a wind direction detection function. Further, the full specification features additional video control cameras, separate lighting controls for both economy and business class and an additional working position for a flight attendant at the wall of option galley at the back of the aircraft. Individual gaspers over each passenger seat were also installed, thus improving passenger comfort. The full aircraft is equipped with three lavatories with diaper boards, and each three-seat-block in the cabin has an additional oxygen mask. Instead of three galleys, the aircraft contains four, one of which is equipped with two ovens. There is additional space to fit a flight baby cot.
The SSJ100 is a 100 seat regional jet designed, developed and built by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC), in partnership with Alenia Aermacchi, a Finmeccanica Company.. The Sukhoi Superjet 100 cruises at a Maximum Operating Speed of Mach 0.81 and 40,000 feet. It takes off from a 1,731 meters runway in the basic range and 2,052 meters in the long range. The operating range for the basic version is 3,048 km and 4,578 km for the long range version.
