Sukhoi Superjet, he’s SSJ 100, he’s RRJ — the first and only Russian short-haul passenger aircraft, designed and put into production in the former Soviet Union. First Russian aviation company became a major international integrator of the project and its development has attracted more than 30 leading international companies.
In today’s world there is no country that constructs and collecting civil aircraft on their own, without the involvement of third-party partners. Such large projects can not do without foreign contractors. At the same Boeing in Russia’s largest engineering center outside the United States. Airbus integrates aircraft manufacturers in France, Germany, Spain and England, the USA, Japan and China. Direct competitor Superjet — The VoicePLL 175 was designed with the participation of 16 partners and to its production attracted 22 companies from around the world. And the company, suppliers of complex aircraft systems and modules work with all aircraft manufacturers. In the production of Boeing and Airbus are the Russian products from the Russian as titanium, but, for example, the company Hamilton Sundstrand designs and manufactures air conditioning systems at once for the two competing aircraft — Airbus A380 and Boeing 787. The plane — the most complicated constructive and mistaken who thinks that if you take the best imported components and are as of Lego bricks, collect the plane, he immediately fly. Electronics itself will understand how the control elements and how many sensors are what feed signals, hydraulics itself at the right time will give the necessary pressure, avionics will flow naturally and easily its electronic signals in the vehicle’s power supply plane. And after all these components must also correctly placed in the body of the aircraft. Superjet is designed in Russia and without the use of drawing paper, drawing board, T-square and drawing pen. This is the first plane in the country’s history, created entirely in digital.
In the airplane used: French avionics, fuel system and landing gear, the British crew seats, life support systems and the German wire control system, Swiss motor vibration sensors, Korean doors, the American hydraulic, fire extinguishing system, brakes and finishing of interior. In Russia, Novosibirsk made nose fuselage and empennage. All the elements of the composite materials are produced in Voronezh. In Komsomolsk-on-Amur collect the fuselage center section, the elements of the mechanization of the wings, and is the final assembly of aircraft. Paint the Superjet in Ulyanovsk. A significant role in the life of the aircraft played a leading Russian institutes, which were resource and static tests Superjet. "SibNIA" in Novosibirsk, TsAGI and LII in Zhukovsky.
United Aircraft Corporation and JSC "Sukhoi Civil Aircraft" opened the doors for us of Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Production Association, we were able to see the production of a new Russian regional jet.
"KnAAPO" produces three central fuselage (see markings on pictures F2, F3, comprising a center section of the wing, and F4), Detachable wing (SUNGLASSES) And engine pylons.
