Sukhoi Aircraft Company of Russia is cutting down components needing United States export clearance to enable exports of the Sukhoi Super Jet 100 (SSJ100) to Iran and other third countries.
According to US export control regulations, State Department clearance is required if the quantum of US-made components exceed 10%.
The SSJ100 manufacturer JSC “Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company” did not receive any feedback from the USA as far as the request for the aircraft export delivery to Iran is concerned, a Sukhoi statement said today.
The quantity of American components in current SSJ100 version surpasses 10% so according to the prescribed procedure SCAC proceeded with the application in 2017 and sent the request to the (United States) Office of Foreign Assets Contorl (OFAC). By the end of 2018 the company received neither positive nor negative feedback, the statement asserted.
However, as part of the import substitution program SCAC continues to reduce the number of foreign components and is currently working at the new SSJ100 modification.
The operational costs of that new aircraft modification are to be lowered substantially. Besides, the program efficiency is planned to be increased via re-pricing of a number of components. And the deliveries of the new aircraft are not supposed to be formally agreed upon by third parties (requiring export clearance).
Regarding US suppliers and components in the SSJ100 civil aircraft project, Honeywell supplies the auxiliary power unit, Hamilton Sundstrand provides electric systems, wheels and brakes are by Goodrich and Hydraulic systems by Parker.
The US Treasury has denied an export certificate for the sale of Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft to Iran as the Russian passenger jet contains more than 10% US-made parts. “However, it appears that due to the lack of license issued by OFAC (the US Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control), the arrival of the planes is out of question for now,” secretary of Association of Iranian Airlines Maqsoud Asadi Samani told Iranian Labor New Agency (ILNA) Tuesday
