Sukhoi headquarters

Suchoi ( Russian Сухой ; [ sʊxɔˑj ]) (complete name: Aircraft Holding Suchoi / ОАО Авиационная холдинговая компания Сухой) is a former head according to the designer Pavel Sukhoi named Russian Aircraft Company , headquartered in Moscow . The company, which was founded in 1939, has been 100% part of the Russian aviation consortium OAK since the end of 2006 .


On July 29, 1939, Pavel Sukhoi was appointed chief designer of the aircraft factory No. 135 in Kharkov , which was also recognized as an independent design bureau. Therefore, this date can be called the founding day of the OKB ( Experimental Design Office ) Sukhoi. Sukhoi was already designing airplanes during the Second World War . It was one of the first Soviet design offices to deal with jet propulsion. It was dissolved in 1949 and only reopened after Stalin's death in 1953.

For a long time, Sukhoi only designed and built military aircraft, primarily fighters and bombers. The focus is still on combat aircraft.

The first civilian construction from 1984, the Su-26 aerobatic aircraft , formed the basis for further aerobatic constructions ( Su-29 and Su-31 ) and the cornerstone of the company's civilian sector.

In 2000 the civil aircraft Suchoi AG ( Russian АО Гражданские самолёты Сухого (Graschdanskije samoljoty Sukhovo)) was founded. From 2001 to 2011, the passenger aircraft Suchoi Superjet 100 was developed with the help of advice from Boeing . In 2006 the Italian group Alenia Aeronautica took over a blocking minority in Suchois civil aviation company . and was booted out by capital increases. Not on the project phase, a proposal came to a competitor for the A380 -900, the KR-860 . This aircraft was to replace the Antonov An-225 in the cargo version .

In addition to these civil projects, the Sukhoi design office manufactured the Su-47 Berkut, a test vehicle with a negative wing swept , from which knowledge flowed into the PAK-FA program acquired by Suchoi , the new fighter aircraft for the Russian Air Force . The prototypes were named T-50. The first flight took place in January 2010. Since August 2017, the aircraft has been officially called the Sukhoi Su-57 .

In 2014 the company celebrated its 75th birthday. On this occasion, a Superjet 100-95B of Center-South Airlines was given a special paint job .

In the field of unmanned aerial vehicles , Sukhoi is developing a family of drones called Sond ( Russian Зонд ) and the Su-70.
