One week ago the third Superjet constructed in the Far East of Russia entered into service with Aeroflot. The plane was named after Ivan Orlovets, a famous pilot of Aeroflot who tested the first jet aircrafts.
Strange chair configuration 3+2 off centre and at Business it’s 2+2. Don’t think the trolly dollys will thank the designers for that.
3+2 is standard for such aircrafts: ie Fokker 70/100,and Bombardier C100/300 will be 2+3/ and 2+2 at business class.
Smaller Embraer 145 used to have 2+1
Anyway nice aircraft, bigger diversity in the air is nice.
Why they do not use class deviders? Also something wrong with carpets/
Interiors are not finished yet. The carpets will be replaced and the dividers will be put on the place.
Those carpets might be there to prevent tech guys to soil it when working to prepare the plane for flight.
Exactly, they’re put down to prevent shoe grit from marring the floor surfaces.
Cockpit interior seems a bit similar to Airbus + Embraer.
This aircraft reminds me of the DC-9. If it can fly like a DC-9 then they will be around for a long time.
I imagine they left the bulkhead out because it takes up much space on a small plane.
Looks like someone couldn’t afford the electronic flight-bag option
Love the clipboards in place of another LCD
actually every plane has a provision for paper (even American ones) it is for the preflight checklist and usually also has pilots notes added to it according to a mate of mine that flies Qantas jets. Although some have been pushing for the removal of the paper versions, some overseas companies have landed themselves in hot water for using `electronic flight bag’ notes here- they are still a requirement to fly here in paper form and overseas pilots that break the rules can (and have been) banned from flying into our airports again
Interior is ugly like inside lada cars.
Is the cockpit sidestick fly-by-wire or are the yokes removed?
Russian planes lost a lot of market share after ’90. If they will combine their cell structure with british motors and USA avionics, something great will appear…
shame the damn thing crashed last week
Not really “superjet” worthy. that thing is closer to a 737 than an a380. I dont see what is so impressive.
