The company head, Mikhail Pogosyan, said Sukhoi will conduct flight tests of the Su-35 advanced multi-role fighter and SuperJet-100 medium-haul passenger airplane prior to the MAKS-2007 International Aviation & Space Salon set for August 21-26.
The Su-35 Flanker-E is an advanced version of the Su-27 interceptor and is powered by two AL-37F engines. It is a versatile fighter that combines high maneuverability and the capacity to intercept air targets with ground and sea attack capability using both unguided and guided, including high precision, weapons.
Sergei Sergeyev, deputy general director of the holding and head of Sukhoi's China office, earlier said a prototype of the Su-35 has already conducted test flights, but refused to give more details. He said the company has started to promote the Su-35 fighter on the Chinese market.
The SuperJet project is a family of medium-range passenger aircraft developed by Sukhoi in cooperation with major American and European aviation corporations, including Boeing, Snecma, Thales, Messier Dowty, Liebherr Aerospace, and Honeywell.
Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, a subsidiary of the Sukhoi holding, said last month it plans to produce at least 700 SuperJet planes, and intends to sell 35% of them to North America, 25% to Europe, 10% to Latin America, and 7% to Russia and China.
The company said SuperJets-100 will go into service in late 2007-early 2008.
