Sukhoi Superjet 130
|Role||Regional jet airliner|
|Manufacturer||Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Production Association|
|Designer||Sukhoi Civil Aircraft|
The Sukhoi Superjet 130 (Russian: Сухой Суперджет 130) also known as Superjet 130NG or SSJ-130 is a modern, fly-by-wire narrow-body medium-range jet airliner that is being developed by Sukhoi. The design is based on the Sukhoi Superjet 100, with a seating capacity expected to be in the 120 to the 145 seat category. It is designed to compete internationally with the Bombardier CSeries, the Airbus A319, and smaller models of Boeing 737NG.
In 2011 Russia’s ministry of industry and trade published its views for the development of an advanced commercial plane in its MPT Report in 2011. This was the beginning of the SSJ 130NG.
Development of the Superjet 130 started in 2011.
The SSJ 130NG will have an aluminum fuselage and use composite materials for it's wing which includes the center section, elevator and rudder. Sukhoi believes that the new materials will weigh 15 to 20 percent less than it does on other commercial planes, increase the plane's service life by 20 to 30 percent, reduce the plane's operating costs by 10 to 12 percent, and reduce energy consumption during the plane's manufacturing by 10 to 15 percent.
Fuselage plugs will give the SSJ 130NG a greater length. It will feature new engines from a source yet to be chosen. Some SSJ 100 suppliers might be ousted from the SSJ 130NG.
Its development has been re-confirmed in August 2012.
The current development schedule calls for testing of experimental components in 2011 and 2012, certification of production components in 2015, and the start of production in 2016.
