Russian start-up Azimut to lease 12 SuperJets

Start-up airline Azimut (Krasnodar) is close to signing a contract for the lease of at least four SSJ-100 aircraft from Russia's GTLK - State Transport Leasing, with the option for an additional eight within two years.

Speaking with Aviation Explorer, a source said that the first aircraft are required as soon as possible. Price has been a significant factor in aircraft choice, with GTLK offering preferential leasing rates through state subsidies. Additionally, the contract is fixed in roubles, reducing currency conversion costs.

Once an aircraft lease contract is secured, Azimut can begin the process of applying for its Air Operator's Certificate (AOC), meaning a summer 2017 launch date - as previously planned - is unlikely.

Azimut plans to focus on serving the neglected central and southern Russian markets from bases at Rostov and Krasnodar. Late last year, Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov announced that Azimut would be based out of the new Platov airport currently under construction, 29 kilometres from Rostov. Construction of the airport is part of Russia's preparations for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Although Azimut would like the SuperJets as soon as possible, it may not be possible. Vladislav Masalov, Vice-President of the United Aircraft Corporation – which owns Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (Ramenskoye) – has previously said that delivery is unlikely before 2018 as all availability is currently taken.

April 2017 – Comlux delivers the first EASA-certified cabin for a Sukhoi Business Jet

Comlux is pleased to announce that Comlux Completion, it’s Completion and Services center based in Indianapolis IN, has delivered the first custom VIP Cabin EASA-certified SBJ.

The VIP aircraft, owned by Kazakhmys PLC Corporation in Kazakhstan, features 19 certified seats for Taxi-Take-off & Landing in a contemporary corporate interior designed and engineered by Comlux. It includes a VIP area at the front with a club-4 seating across from a side-facing sofa and an executive section with 15 First class seats in a 2 x1, 3-abreast configuration.

After a 12 month downtime for the completion, including cabin certification as per the stringent safety and quality regulations of EASA, the aircraft has been delivered to Comlux KZ, the regional VIP operator of Fly Comlux in central Asia, which will take care of the operations of the aircraft in service. The SBJ is also the first aircraft of the type available on the charter market.

Eduard Ogay, CEO of Kazakhmys PLC subsidiary in Kazakhstan says “The SBJ has been delivered on quality and on time and as per the highest standard of the industry. The addition of the SBJ to our corporate fleet successfully operated by Comlux KZ allows a large number of our company executives and employees to travel all together efficiently and in full comfort. It is the right business tool for our company.”

“This SBJ is the first of its type to be outfitted in corporate configuration and certified by EASA” says Scott Meyer, CEO Comlux Completion. “This made it especially challenging given the completion operations in the US, for an aircraft without FAA TC, showcasing once again how Comlux can adapt and find solutions in any environment to best serve our customers.” He adds:” The Comlux team has performed an outstanding job on the aircraft interior, including flight testing and certification under full EASA oversight. Thanks to our Cabin Innovation and Research Center, we have demonstrated our ability to complete new aircraft type interiors beyond ACJs and BBJs. We proudly delivered the aircraft to Comlux KZ and we wish them a successful corporate and charter operation.”

Comlux is one of the leaders in business aviation, operating worldwide with the highest standards of safety and quality. In addition to its dedicated VIP flight service program OneAbove by comlux, Comlux offers a comprehensive set of services to VIP customers who wish to have their own aircraft managed personally and professionally. This includes exclusive aircraft management, sales and acquisitions, VIP cabin design and completion as well as aircraft maintenance and engineering services.

Winglets add weight. They are only really useful if the airplane will spend much of its flight in a long, continuous, high-speed cruise.

Sukhoi Superjet 100 Wing Tests for Winglets Installation Performed Successfully/07.06.2017



Static tests of Sukhoi Superjet 100 wing panel for future installation of winglets have been successfully completed.
Use of winglets will enhance takeoff and landing performance, increase Sukhoi Superjet 100 fuel efficiency as well as flight range for not less than 3%, more than that increased climbing characteristics will expand limits for hot and high operations

SSJ-100 of Brussels Airlines. Sven Bollue's trip report.

Quote:
the Sukhoi SuperJet100 is a little dream come true: a regional jet that offers its passengers vastly more comfort in Economy class than any of the usual long haul Airbuses and Boeings. I think that is quite an achievement, and makes me truly hope that more European airliners will consider adding the SuperJet100 to their fleet. Sukhoi brings a plane that is designed ‘spot on’ and provides very high passenger comfort. Brussels Airlines and CityJet have made a terrific choice!

Sukhoi Plans Next-Generation Superjet

Sukhoi Superjet 100 celebrates its 10th anniversary since rollout this year, but the Russian manufacturer already is already planning a new generation of this regional jet. The SSJ 100, with extended capacity, new wing and new engine, is expected to appear after 2025, Vladislav Masalov, the new president of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Corp. (SCAC), told ShowNews.

He explained that the SSJ 100 modernization will be done in several stages. The first effort till 2020 calls for the improvement of the current aircraft. “This includes the improvement of runway performance and airframe reliability and retrofit under the requirements of the European SESAR air traffic management project,” explained Masalov.

He said that the next step will be the development of a completely new 130-seat platform with a new wing by 2023. The previous effort to expand the capacity of the existing airframe, known as SSJ-100SV (stretched version), has been abandoned.

The large aircraft will require a new powerplant. The existing SSJ 100 has a single-engine option – SaM146, manufactured by French Safran in cooperation with Russia’s United Engines (UEC) – but the future modification may have a Russian powerplant.

“We will talk with both Safran and UEC. The latter plans to scale down the PD-14 engine for 7 to 9 tons thrust,” explains Masalov, who headed the Russian engine manufacturer in 2012–15. The 14-tons-thrust PD-14 designed for Russia’s MC-21 narrowbody airliner is being flight-tested now, with certification planned for 2018–19.

After the new powerplant is selected, it will also be used to re-engine the current 100-seat aircraft. This enables Sukhoi to offer to the market de facto a new family consisting of 100- and 130-seat variants after 2025. “We will have a new regional aircraft with flight range, operational efficiency and runway requirements significantly improved to satisfy the market demand,” mentioned Masalov.

He explained that this modernization program has yet to be approved by the board of United Aircraft Corp. (the parent company of SCAC), following discussion with leasing companies, airlines and key suppliers. The program cost is estimated at about RUB60 billion (roughly US$1.1 billion) with 50 to 60% of this sum to be financed by SCAC. “But approval or disapproval of this program doesn’t rule out the improvement of the aircraft’s basic version,” Masalov said, adding that the company allocated RUB1.5 billion for this effort for this year.

The SSJ 100 modernization plan was announced shortly after Sukhoi took full control of the program after Italian Finmeccanica reduced its participation to only a 10% stake in Venice, Italy–based joint venture SuperJet International, the latter offering SSJ 100 customization for Western customers, as well as training and after-sales support.

According to Masalov, SCAC’s main priorities are now the increase of sales and improvement of after-sales support. The Russian manufacturer expects additional orders from two major SSJ operators – Russia’s largest carrier, Aeroflot, and Mexican Interjet – as well as to launch a re-marketing scheme with Russian GTLK State Transport Leasing Company for Russian carriers. “So the annual output of 35 airframes we are planning for the next several years is very much achievable,” Masalov hopes.

Ten years after the SSJ 100 rollout, SCAC is preparing to build its 150th airframe. The manufacturer delivered 26 aircraft in 2016, and 25 in 2015. For the past few years, the program enjoyed strong financial support from the Russian government, which provided the company with resources to cover its financial debt and subsidized the aircraft leasing to Russian airlines. The sales plan for this year stands at 34 aircraft, with a further 38 and 37 airframes to be sold in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

More than 120 aircraft are now in operation in Russia, Mexico, Thailand, Kazakhstan and Europe. At the beginning of June, Irish carrier CityJet, which became the SSJ 100’s first European operator, received its sixth aircraft of the type. It wet-leased the jetliner to another European operator, Brussels Airlines, that already operates two Russian aircraft. Sukhoi Civil Aircraft is at Chalet 349.—Maxim Pyadushkin
New engine and new wing have not been developed yet for NG.
2023 seems decent, but I believe backlog of current order will be fulfilled by 2019. That is why UAC need to push LCY certification on SSJ as soon as possible.
