A Sukhoi Superjet 100 has successfully completed high-altitude flight testing in Armenia.

The tests included continued take-off and one engine inoperative (OEI) missed approach flights, and simulating one engine failure at maximum take-off weight.

The jet’s performance complied with the certification requirements and results of the campaign ensure safe operation of aircraft from the mountain airfields with 10,000ft elevation.

The high-altitude tests took place at Armenia’s Shirak Airport at Gyumri, which is located at an altitude of 5,000ft.
