IAC AR, the Russian certification authority, has granted Type Certification to the Sukhoi Superjet 100 following a certification campaign performed by IAC AR, certification centres, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company and Alenia Aeronautica.
The Type Certificate confirms the compliance of the aircraft with the IAC certification norms and airworthiness directives thus opening the way to begin commercial operation.
Simultaneously the IAC AR has also granted a Design Organization Approval certificate to Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company.
The Official Ceremony to celebrate the milestone is scheduled for 3 February at IAC AR Headquarters in Moscow.
