Sukhoi Corporation is Russia’s major military and civil aircraft manufacturer and is wholly-owned by the United Aviation Corporation. The corporation formed after the Russian government merged Sukhoi with Mikoyan, Ilyushin, Irkut, Tupolev, and Yakovlev under the brand United Aircraft Corporation. Sukhoi Corporation employs over 29,000 people across its main divisions of Sukhoi Design Bureau, KnAAPO, NAPO, Irkut SPC, TANKT and Sukhoi Civil Aircraft. The corporation is Russia's major manufacturer of export aircraft, and third-largest provider of military fighters in the world. Sukhoi is currently implementing extensive programmes in the field civil aircraft engineering through its subsidiary Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company. The subsidiary was founded in 2000 to design, produce, market and support civil aircraft programmes. Headquartered in Moscow, SCAC has branches at the main production sites located in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Novosibirsk and Voronezh.
Currently, Sukhoi’s major civil aircraft programme is the Sukhoi Superjet 100, a family of regional aircraft in the 75-100 seat class in basic (SSJ100/75B and SSJ100/95B) and long-range configuration (SSJ100/75LR and SSJ100/95LR).
