Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC) has delivered the first Sukhoi Superjet 100 for Indonesian carrier Sky Aviation at a ceremony in Ulyanovsk, Russia, where the two parties signed an Act of Delivery & Acceptance.
Transfer of the aircraft (MSN 95022) from the Ulyanovsk Delivery Centre to its base airport in Indonesia is planned for January 2013, with the SSJ100 entering commercial operations for the carrier shortly after.
The document signed by the parties states that the aircraft is technically sound and fully meets the performance criteria. The Act of Delivery & Acceptance also confirms that the SSJ100 is transferred to the carrier with a full set of required operational and maintenance documentation and flight kit.
Earlier Indonesian aviation authorities validated the Type Certificate for the Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft. This validation confirms compliance of the SSJ100 to the certification requirements of the Indonesian Aviation Authority, allowing its export to Indonesia and operation by Indonesian airlines without restrictions.
