The Sukhoi Superjet 100 has successfully passed a noise testing programme performed as a part of the overall certification campaign during eight certification flights supervised of AR IAC and EASA.
The preliminary results show that the aircraft noise levels show full compliance with ICAO CAEP IV requirements.
The same aircraft S/N 95004 is undergoing HIRF testing using a methodology designed by the SCAC engineering team in collaboration with Alenia Aeronautica and relevant certification authorities.
HIRF certification is required to demonstrate that the aircraft electric and electronic equipments are not influenced by external electromagnetic fields like those produced by a TV or radio station or by a radar. The testing consists of radiating the aircraft with radio waves whose frequencies and levels of emission are set by Certification rules.
“The Sukhoi Superjet 100 is the first aircraft in Russia that has compliance with international noise standards proven in flight under supervision of Russian and European certification authorities. It’s a real milestone in the SSJ 100 programme which confirms good prospects for the worldwide aircraft sales,” remarked Igor Vinogradov, SCAC’s SVP on certification.
