YEREVAN, May 16 (RIA Novosti) – Two Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional
passenger aircraft are due to undergo flight tests in mountainous
conditions in Armenia, a Russian deputy prime minister said on Saturday
during a two-day visit in Yerevan.

"In July they [the aircraft] will fly to Armenia to undergo flight
tests in high mountainous conditions," said Sergei Ivanov.

Ivanov said that Armenia’s national airline, Armavia, would be the
first country to receive the Superjet 100.

A Sukhoi Civil Aircraft spokesperson earlier said the company had
received some 98 orders, including 30 from Russian flagship carrier
Aeroflot and 10 from Italian companies.

The Superjet 100 project is a family of medium-haul passenger aircraft
developed by Sukhoi in cooperation with U.S. and European aviation
corporations, including Boeing, Snecma, Thales, Messier Dowty,
Liebherr Aerospace and Honeywell.
