Sukhoi Superjet 100 Integrated LG system

The Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC), its strategic partner Alenia
Aeronautica and the other program participants are preparing the
first SSJ100 for its maiden flight later this year.

Comprising two different sizes of aircraft (SSJ100-75 and SSJ100-
95), the SSJ100 family is being marketed around the world and
will attain both Russian and FAA/JAA certification.

Sukhoi’s choice of Messier-Dowty for the SSJ100
integrated landing gear system marks our entry into
the larger regional jet market.

For weight optimization and to allow for a lighter airframe
structure, the design of the SSJ landing gear reflects
an architecture that is more commonly found on larger
commercial aircraft.

The landing gear system encompasses the dressed nose and main
landing gears, subsystems for landing gear control and indication,
emergency extension, steering control, plus electrical harnesses, door
mechanisms, actuators, uplocks, the extension and retractionsystem, as well as the steering system.
