Inside the Factory Producing Russian Passenger SU Jets Sukhoi Superjets

Posted on September 15, 2015 by tim

Another post for today regarding aircraft production. Now this time, it is much more detailed than the previous one about the MI-8, and with full captions. Thanks to Said who has visited this place we can now look deeply into their workshops and see the planes inside.

Said has taken a few photos there at various stages of production and decided to show a few of them. Like this one, which is being built for the Mexican airline, Interjet.

The airplane is covered with green primer which will be painted over later. This Mexican airline has ordered 30 airplanes and 15 have already been shipped.

Inside the plane there are only five seats – just enough for the number of engineers who will come here to inspect this stage.

The pilots cabin is fully complete and ready to use.

The engines are made by a joint Russian-French company.

The Mexican airline is said to be happy with the planes and with how the inside looks – the interior of the planes was designed by Pininfarina – the same design company that designed a few Ferraris.

Landing gear being prepared and tested.


This plane has been raised on jacks for the landing gear to be tested.

In a moment, the landing gear rises inside like the plane is in the air, but instead it is standing on the jacks.

Here are a few more planes. These are for the Russian government. The one on the right is one of the first SSJ planes, it had its first flight in 2010.

This trains crew on how to escape plane safely.

And this simulator is for training pilots to fly in extreme conditions.


So Said climbed inside of the trainer cockpit with a pro pilot to give him a ride.

He says it felt like a real flight!

They were even trying a landing in fog.

And here is a plane built for the Russian AEROFLOT airline.


This plane belongs to the Russian police department.

Hope you liked this report and big thanks to Said for the photos!

    Since you are moderation the other blog entry, im gonna repost here:

    Paying subscription to a blog with rehosted content from russian language blogs? NO THANKS
    Tim stop lying, you are obviously a moderator if not the webmaster. You know whether it is hundreds or thousands of subscribers. I think it is hundreds or less. They are stupid nonetheless.. You got greedy, and destroyed the userbase of a fairly good and popular blog. Good luck getting the like of gawker media to link to you in the future. I doesn’t surprise me that a russian is being greedy, but it surprises me that the propaganda ministry let af good forum for russian jingoism deteriorate to such an extent. They should have paid you better..

    Side note: My adblock software says that there are 11 advertisements on this page, and another 3 external advertisement loading requests..
    On top of asking for paid subscription! Damn, don’t you feel ashamed? Okay thought not..
