The United Aircraft Corporation is postponing the implementation period of this project.

According to Bocharov, the aircraft SSJ 75 is a project of an import-substituted plane and not a shortened with 75 seats. In the basic version of the Super Jet aircraft – 98 seats.

“The plane was not built under 75 seats, this is a provisional name. It was import-substituted with a new PD-8 engine”, explained Oleg Bocharov.

According to Bocharov, simultaneously with the import substitution of components in the SSJ, other aircraft problems will also be resolved, including on system reliability and airworthiness.

Its maiden flight was conducted on 19 May 2008. Commercial passenger flights began in 2011. The flight range of the basic version is 4,400 km, capacity – 98 passengers.
