Sukhoi Superjet 100 SN 95004 had completed cold soak trials in Yakutsk and returned to the Zhukovsky-based Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company flight test center. Yakutsk is the 6th regional airport in Russia and CIS, where SSJ100 successfully performed its assigned flight test programme.

Yakutsk hosted successful runs of standard procedures designed to warm up the aircraft after long-term parking of up to 17 hours - while the jet was exposed to temperatures that reached -41°С – with a further check of aircraft system performance
and a launch of the APU and then the engines. These procedures involved standard ground servicing equipment. Upon warm-up completion, a total of 7 test flights, assigned to this trial batch, was delivered, demonstrating the smooth operation of all on-board systems after aircraft low temperature soaking. SCAC’s team also assessed the influence of short parking on aircraft availability for the next take-off.
