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 two aircraft in the air since December 24, 2008, the programme scored 130 flights for a total of 400 hours.

The first two aircraft are currently in test flight with a third aircraft scheduled to joint the flight test program in spring 2009. The certification plan calls for Russia civil certification by November 2009, followed by EASA certification in 2010 and FAA certification thereafter.
