“May get a Russian name”: SSJ-100 is preparing for rebranding

The management of Rostec, which has recently been part of the UAC (United Aircraft Corporation), is considering a possible rebranding of Superjet and changing its name to Russian.

This was stated in an interview with RBC by the head of the state corporation, Sergei Chemezov.

In his opinion, the issue of rebranding Superjet has matured after a series of problems that arose with this airliner. In particular, after the disaster at Sheremetyevo, which claimed 41 lives.

The head of the state corporation noted that it is necessary to reduce dependence on foreign components in Russian aircraft. He also said that today Russian civilian aircraft are unprofitable, and the UAC subsequently has to cover these losses due to military expense items.

Sergei Chemezov believes that for the aircraft industry to operate reliably, demand is needed, and all the “childhood illnesses” of the aircraft will be eliminated over time.

The head of Rostec also expressed disagreement with the negative image that the aircraft are trying to create. He believes that an emergency can happen to any aircraft and suggested waiting for the conclusions of the IAC to find out what actually caused the Sheremetyevo disaster.

Recall that the first flight of the Superjet 100 took place in 2008.

    One of the leaders of the C7 company recently gave an interview in which he said that the CCJ-100 is also unprofitable because it is not in its niche ...
    Initially, it is planned as a 75-seater, and the C7 had a pre-order for 75 boards, and then it was promoted to a 100-seater, and now it offers them to take such ...
    But they don’t need this, because it is disadvantageous on local lines ...
    Something like this ...

    In principle, Chemezov said everything correctly. Yes, localization of aircraft production should be complete - ALL spare parts should be produced in Russia. This has been said for a long time and more than once. Even to such amateurs as we (arguing here), and even that has long been clear. Of course, I understand that the management of the enterprise (producing this model) has INTERNATIONAL obligations. But ... have TAM still not understood that Russia will NEVER be given the opportunity to sell their aircraft of production, if the foreign bosses have even the slightest opportunity? Even for their country, they will interfere with our production, so that we do not have OWN aircraft. The best way is to buy up the leadership of competitors ... or kill them (which they successfully do around the world).
    And in order for us (in Russia) to buy YOUR aircraft, you need to put the "business" in such conditions in which the West puts its business. There, just try to buy something Russian! Instantly the most "democratic nation" will fly up and impose fines for ... well, it will find, in general, for what! Want to do business in Russia? The percentage of use of domestic production should be higher than imported! What do we have? Can't make airplanes? Able! Just to be able to produce them massively, a state order is needed (and don’t tell me that the leadership of the West is not lobbying for the interests of its producer - it’s a LIE! A lie that our homegrown “liberals” are all trying to buy the population of Russia!). But when the state will have enough aircraft produced in Russia, then it will be able to FAVORITELY offer them to carriers, BUT - with its spare parts and with its own service infrastructure. And then b / w-shny trash from the west - in FIG will not be needed! But while liberoid creacles and their ideas of the "free hand of the market" will dominate in the Russian economy, there will be no use at all from any kind of economy! Including in aircraft manufacturing!

    I just read it, the opinion of the failure of the superjet from Ignatiev Aircraft Designer, however, the authors were embarrassed to indicate that the designer is the Sigma micro-airplane, which is produced piece by piece for a ride.

    Just need to redo it first. Otherwise, he will quickly discredit the Russian name.
