Russia's Domestically-Produced SJ-100 Makes First Successful Flight
"A prototype of the Russian short-haul aircraft SJ-100, manufactured by the Production Center of Yakovlev PJSC in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, made its first flight. During the tests, the stable operation of all domestic systems, the controllability and stability of the aircraft in the air were confirmed," the ministry said in a statement.
"The first flight of the Superjet, created under the program of import substitution of systems and components, is the success of many thousands employees of enterprises in the aircraft manufacturing and radio-electronic industries that are part of the control loop of the state corporation Rostec. Russian developers and manufacturers managed to implement and put on the aircraft their own design solutions and technologies, including avionics, landing gear, auxiliary power unit, integrated control system, as well as power supply systems, air conditioning, fire protection and many others," Industry Minister Denis Manturov said.
