The crew spent 1 hour and 5 minutes in flight. In due accordance with the launch flight mission, the new Russian aircraft gained the height of 1, 200 meters. During its premiere flight, the Sukhoi Superjet 100 successfully took off, flew over the takeoff runway the expected four times at different heights, completed a box pattern span and successfully landed. The pilot crew confirmed the high thrust-to-weight ratio and the sustainable operation of the aircraft engines and main systems.
"Today is the most important day for us – we have virtually beaten the air with our own wings. It has been a long way. The result we achieved – the first debut of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 in the sky – is really inspiring for aviators. Our team comprised of thousands of people from all over the world shares this big success. The Sukhoi Superjet 100 is a remarkable aircraft, which did complete its first flight. At the same time, there are a lot of things to do - certification tests are ahead. I am sure that we will win and the aircraft will be a success", said Mikhail Pogosyan, Director General of Sukhoi Holding.
 "The first flight is the highlight of the aviation industry and the most important event for people involved in the Project. It is very emotional. The first flight is a challenging task, as the Sukhoi Superjet 100 is a new SUPER product with excellent technical and flight characteristics. This aircraft is unique for Russia. Every minute of the first flight was both an exciting expectation and an impressive experience", said Victor Subbotin, President of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft.
