Dépèche transmise le 5 août 2009 par Business Wire

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SuperJet International – the regional jet marketing, customization and support Company for the Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional aircraft – has received from ENAC (Italian Aeronautical Civil Authority) the certification “EASA PART 147”, Approval No. IT.147.0010, according to the Regulation (EC).

With the “EASA PART 147”, and the “FTO” (Flight Training Organization) certification received last year for pilot training, SuperJet International’s Tessera Training Center is now completely operational.

This certification authorizes SuperJet International to organize technical training courses (as an Approved Maintenance Training Organization) and hold training courses, specifically designed for aeronautical engineers who possess a License of Aeronautical Maintenance (AML) and are responsible for the maintenance and release to service of the aircraft, in line with Regulation (EC) Part 66.

The approval received permits SuperJet International to request the same recognition from the Russian Aviation Authority (Rosaviatsiya), with the intent to obtain the Russian certification for the training center and to provide training courses for the first SuperJet International customers, anticipated to begin in October 2009.

Similarly to EASA PART 145, the EASA PART 147 certificate will be initially used by SuperJet International on the Airbus A320 family, which represents in terms of technologies the most similar characteristics to the SSJ100 aircraft.

About SuperJet International:

SuperJet International, based in Venice, Italy, is a joint venture between Alenia Aeronautica, a Finmeccanica Company (51%) and Sukhoi Holding (49%). It is in charge of marketing, sales, customization and delivery of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional jet in Europe, the Americas, Oceania, Africa and Japan, as well as of worldwide aftersale support.
SuperJet International is also responsible for the design and development of VIP and cargo variants.
A SuperJet International branch is already active in Moscow, together with sales offices in Toulouse, France and Washington, DC, USA.

Designed, developed and built by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC), the Sukhoi Superjet 100 family is comprised of 78- and 98-seaters in basic (SSJ100/95B and SSJ100/75B) and long-range (SSJ100/95LR and SSJ100/75LR) configuration. The SSJ100 is the most advanced and environmentally friendly new generation regional jet. Superior technical and operational characteristics make SSJ100 a fully marketable and competitive product – cost-effective, easy to operate and maintain. SSJ100 is a conceptually new platform designed specifically for a 100-seat segment offering the most efficient combination of regional efficiency with mainline capabilities.
The first SSJ100 was rolled out from SCAC’s final assembly shop at Komsomolsk-on Amur on September 26, 2007. First flight was successfully accomplished last May 19, 2008.
With three aircraft in the air since July 25, 2009, the programme scored nearly 270 flights for a total exceeding 720 hours.
The certification plan calls for Russia civil certification by November 2009, followed by EASA certification in 2010 and FAA certification thereafter.
