The fuselage cross-section increases the aisle width up to 20.08”, offering optimal aisle height combined with five-abreast seat configuration. The height of the ceiling totals 83.46”, while each seat is 18.31” wide.
The four-abreast seat configuration results in a true business class providing every passenger with the equal level of comfort.
The passengers enjoy easy and comfortable access to overhead bins which comfortably swallow standard roll-aboard bags (IATA approved hand luggage; maximum 24″x16″x10″). SSJ100’s spacious overhead bins can be perfectly suited for outer garments and coats (from raincoats to Alaska coats) regardless of the season or region.
The leading-edge technologies, being the core ingredient of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 Project, penetrate its every stage – from design and development to final assembly, delivering a modern, economically efficient and globally marketable aircraft.
SSJ100 is easy and safe to pilot. The cockpit design features a “passive” side stick and “active” engine control levers. The Human Centered Design concept perfectly arranges the control levers and on-board equipment. SSJ100 can be landed by one pilot only. Dark and Quiet Cockpit offers precise, convenient and reliable piloting of Sukhoi Superjet 100.
Optimal piloting in automated mode together with the failure-safe flight control system ensure additional fuel efficiency and improve flight safety. The remote control system (RCS) is based upon three two-channel upper level computers (PFCU – Primary Flight Actuator Control Unit) adding two-channel lower level computers (ACE – Actuator Control Electronics). PFCU’s process command signals coming from the cockpit, autopilot and avionics. Besides, it optimizes piloting performance in all flight modes. The unsurpassed functionality of PFCU results from Sukhoi Design Bureau’s experience in development of FBW systems with automatic limitation of ultimate and operational flight parameters in manual and automatic control modes. Solid reliability of the aircraft systems and pilot induced failure proof functionality increase flight safety. Sukhoi Superjet 100 is sure to become the first regional aircraft, enjoying such advanced control system features. In case of in-flight system failures, the RCS switches to the standby control circuit offering piloting characteristics similar to those of manual flight mode.
