Modern Russian Twin Could be First
Commercially-Successful Russian Import Design
RS Tejavia, LP, out of Austin (TX), has just inked a Letter of
Agreement to bring the SU-80 to North America, and to arrange "a
complete engineering and logistical support system as the project
Stephens, the visionary behind Tejavia, said, "Buyers of the SU-80
will be able to enjoy AOG support across the Americas. Prices on
Russian aircraft are typically 30-50% lower than western equipment,
even equipped with FAA-Certified avionics and engines. KnAAPO
expects [FAA] certification in 2004."
Capable, Versatile Design
Cargo operators choosing the SU-80, Stephens told us, can expect
to expand their fleet payload capacity faster than competitors, at
half the price of other aircraft. The high-quality SU-80 is a
multirole aircraft capable of carrying 30 passengers in airline
configuration or 7000 lbs of cargo.
With the aft ramp, the aircraft can perform air-drop of
emergency supplies, hay for livestock, or paratroopers and
smoke-jumpers. As a medium-range cargo hauler, the Sukhoi SU-80
will provide reliable service with its GE CT-7-9B
engines and Hamilton Standard propellers.
Mr Stephens assured us, "MRO support will be no problem anywhere
in the Americas when sold by TEJAVIA."
