 Profound Condolences and sympathy for the bereft families of Sukhoi Superjet 100 tragedy  
May the bereft families be soothed and strengthened

SSJ 100 is a new generation of regional aircraft to carry up to 98 passengers. Russian jet was designed for long-haul flights. There are two types, the basic version is traveled 3,048 km, while the remote version up to 4, 578 km and is capable of flying at an altitude of 12,200 meters.
SSJ 100 maiden flight in May 2008 and has taken a certificate from the Russian authorities and EASA. On April 2011, Sukhoi SSJ 100 began exporting overseas.
The first importers of SSJ 100 is airline from Armenia, Armavi. The aircraft is  also used by the Russian airline, Aeroflot. According to the Russian Embassy, ​​Indonesia already has got some prospective companies that wish to  purchase this plane.
On August 16, 2011, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft and PT Sky Aviation of Indonesia signed an agreement to purchase  12  units of  SSJ 100. with a Contract value of U.S. $ 380 million.


The ministry said a group of Russian aviation experts arrived Thursday in Jakarta, the Indonesian capital, to help with the crash investigation, whose findings will be crucial to Russia’s aircraft manufacturers.
The first post-Soviet civilian airliner designed in Russia’s trouble-plagued aviation industry, the Sukhoi Superjet 100 had been amassing orders on a six-nation promotional tour through Asia. Just 21 minutes into a Wednesday afternoon demonstration flight, with aviation executives and journalists on board, it vanished from radar. Deep fog kept the plane’s fate a mystery overnight, but its wreckage was eventually spotted along the slope of a steep ridge draped in jungle growth in West Java. Photographs showed a brown gash in the ridge and a cascade of debris.
Moments before the crash, for reasons as yet unknown, the pilot requested to descend to 6,000 feet from 10,000 feet.
Investigators are faced with determining whether to blame mechanical problems for the disaster — which would be a deep blow to Russia’s hopes of seizing part of the lucrative international aviation market — or human error.
A deputy Russian prime minister, Dmitry Rogozin, said the aircraft was working “impeccably” before the crash and suggested that “the human factor” — a reference to pilot error or a mistake by ground controllers — was likely to blame. Russian authorities often blame crashes on pilot error, even before the results of an investigation.
Of the new Russian airplane, Mr. Rogozin said: “It’s a modern airplane. Pilots have a high opinion of it.”
Aeroflot, the Russian national airline, issued a statement Thursday saying it will continue to fly the seven planes in its fleet.
But Fitch, the rating agency, issued a note saying the crash would harm the financial outlook of Sukhoi, a government-controlled company, as fewer airlines would be willing to buy the Superjet now — particularly in light of a long history of safety lapses with earlier models of Russian jets.
Sukhoi had hoped to sell about 1,000 Superjets over a decade, and already had 170 orders on the books. Three Indonesian airlines — Kartika, Sky Aviation and Queen Air — had together intended to buy at least 48 Superjets, The Association Press reported, but spokesmen for two of the airlines said they would suspend those orders until the outcome of the investigation.

Sukhoi SuperJet 100 (SSJ100) Tragedy in detail
Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100), Russian-made passenger plane which was flying for the demo flight  or joy flight , fell on the slopes of Mount Salak, Bogor, West Java, on Wednesday (09/05/2012).
So far The Integrated Rescue team has identified the existence of the Sukhoi aircraft. The plane lost contact on the coordinates of 106.43.15 SB and 06:43:08 SN. Around Mount Salak.
The plane had 45 passengers, mostly residents of Indonesia. Halim Perdanakusuma Airport lost contact after some time Sukhoi pilot seeking permission to reduce the height from a height of 10,000 feet down to 6,000 feet.
Search and Rescue team found the wreckage. Survivors of the tragedy has not been reported. Evacuation process was delayed  because of bad weather hindered.
Sympathy, concern and deep sorrow that we convey to people whose family members died in the tragedy of the aircraft.
The exact cause of the crash new capacity of 70-100 passengers was not known. All still speculation until the National Transportation Safety Committee of Indonesia (NTSC) issues the official results of the investigation.
Deepest  sympathy and condolences for the families who are still in mourning, a record number of flight missions that ended the tragedy remains to be examined.
Before flying, the aircraft Sukhoi SSJ100 and the crew were reported in healthy and decent condition. In fact, the first joy  flight, maneuvering session was successful the impressive flying aircraft is claimed to have performed at low operating costs.
In the second flight demo was, shortly after taking off from Halim Perdanakusuma Airport, the plane was still demonstrating its spectacular maneuvers like a fighter plane.
Not surprisingly, dozens of aircraft were ordered by buyers from Indonesia, including those who participated in the joy flight.
However, the fact of the administrative chaos that the flight should not be concern. Several times, we get different statements about the number and names of passengers. Some names are listed on the manifest was later reported not being in the plane.
Conversely, some names are not recorded on the manifest actually participated in that fateful flight. In fact, file manifest of that flight was reportedly carried by one of the passengers.
More than a matter of administrative chaos, Sukhoi aviation SSJ100 otherwise it did not get a permit and a certificate of airworthiness from the government of Indonesia. In fact, Indonesian Law No. 1 of 2009 on Aviation requires it.
The Government should conduct a thorough investigation and take action against all those responsible for the tragedy behind the Sukhoi.
This Tragedy is really a costly lesson. In any flight missions, safety is a priority. There should not be guinea pigs for human life in any mission
Sukhoi pilot maneuver

Meanwhile,  that the pilots of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100), Alexander Yablontsev seemed  too confident in performing flight maneuvers in his joyflight, Movement known as the senior pilot of the Godfather’s Sukhoi Superjet is considered dangerous.
This was disclosed by President of the Federation of Indonesian Pilots, Manotar Napitupulu which assesses many irregularities in the flight which was flown by the former cosmonaut. He claimed to be surprised to hear the pilot descended rapidly from 10 thousand feet to 6 thousand feet. “It is not uncommon in joyflight as sharp as it descended in a single motion. It’s only takes 40-45 seconds,” he said.
Usually the happy flight, the pilot will try to make passengers as comfortable as possible. Even cultivated passengers can eat and drink in peace without any shocks. In joyflight Wednesday, May 9 2012, Yablontsev seems to want to approach the Atang Sanjaya airfield. “But if the decline drastically, rear passengers can be nausea, uncomfortable,” he said.
The decision was also considered odd by the Indonesian pilots. Because it is common that 25 miles to the south Halim Perdanakusumah airport, pilots will avoid flying low in Indonesia. Indonesian pilots have called MSA (Minimum Safety Altitude) or Minimum Safe Altitude, “Towards the south we (local pilots) MSA is below 6900 feet, below the unpredictable weather (unpredictable),” he said.
Therefore Manotar ask NTSC (National Transportation Safety Committee) of Indonesia to further investigate why the pilot had suddenly decided to drop so dramatically, whether due to obstacle or simply want to enjoy the scenery in the mountains of Salak, “ATC (Air Traffic Control) permit because the air in Atang Sanjaya is sterile, there will be no other aircraft “he continued.
Surprisingly enough, when it is 6000 feet above the air base Atang Sanjaya, the pilot requested permission orbit (rotate) in the right direction. The problem, whether it was turned right over the air base Atang Sanjaya? Apparently not, even a plane headed toward the mountain Salak, “Between the air base to Mount Salak Atang Sanjaya it was pretty close to just seven miles, if we are using Sukhoi at least just one minute,” he said.
Manotar said  Yablontsev was deliberately taking  passengers to the top of the mountain to  show the agility and maneuvers the Russian-made aircraft can do . The decision was considered risky because the  weather in the mountain was reportedly  in thick fog . “You should know that heavy fog did not mean to push yourself. Go straight to the Pelabuhan Ratu with destination time of 3-4 minutes, or back to the airbase” he said.
"Probably" Manotar said "Yablontsev (Sukhoi SSJ100 pilot) deliberately wanted to enjoy the scenery  (visual) on Salak mountain first". He therefore asked the NTSC to investigate whether the plane was deliberately out of the safe zone on the air base of Atang Sanjaya? “secondly the pilot might be too confident, and wanted  to maneuver, but did not know the terrain. Especially when it is not accompanied by a local pilot” he said.
Senior Deputy Manager Angkasa Pura II, Mulya Abdi admitted that during the second joyflight flight, the pilot three times to communicate with ATC (Air Traffic Control). First time taking off from Halim Perdana Kusuma airport. Second, when asked for permission falls from a height of 10 thousand feet to 6 thousand feet, and when asked for the third orbit (rotate) to the right. “ATC is still in the area to allow for safe flight” he said.
When requesting permission, and turn it in to loose altitude, the plane was still on the air base of  Atang Sanjaya. Therefore, Mulya expressly says that the ATC has been running the correct procedures in guiding the Sukhoi Superjet 100 plane flight. However, the ATC was surprised that after the plane lost contact. “I’m with NTSC again in order to investigate it” he concluded
Meanwhile, senior pilot Jeffrey Adrian added that all parties had to learn a lot from  the crash of SSJ100. One that should be a lesson is not to give foreign pilots who do not understand the terrain and flight conditions in ground water any permission to fly planes at various flight maneuvers.
“Going forward, foreign pilots should be accompanied by a local co-pilot who understand the true condition of the area and the flight here (Indonesia)” said Jeffrey in a discussion in Jakarta on Saturday, May 12, 2012.
In addition, Jeffery said,  the first flight should have discussed  with the relevant authorities about  the  technical matters such as flight routes, altitudes, any maneuver. “So there must be a flight approval first, then allowed” said Revi Regina’s husband.
The man who has 15 years experience as a pilot of Garuda Indonesia suspected that Alexander has not been well understood field. He said, Alexander had tried his best to follow the rules and regulations.
He said, demand fell from 10 thousand feet to six thousand feet in the air rules is a legitimate thing else. Originally, the pilot can control the visual field. “The demand (down) in the ATC approved, he would have mastered the view” he said.
Maybe the time off, continued Jeffery, a thick cloud suddenly covered his eyes. Alexander was maneuvering to secure the plane, but he was too late and crashed into a cliff. “Maybe it’s because he does not know the terrain” added the man who is now studying water racer.
Jeffery admitted he has a lot of flying experience on the sidelines of the mountains with an altitude of six thousand feet below. Especially when flying in the mountains of Papua Jaya Wijaya. He succeeded in crossing the mountains due to memorize and understand completely the field.
Meanwhile, aviation analysts, Sukardi said, a majority of ATC technology in Indonesia’s airports is outdated. According to him, ATC technology is far behind the technological sophistication aircraft that can not be dammed. “Never in the airport area, such as the capital airport, Soekarno Hatta, the technology must be renewed” he said.
Apart from technological issues, Sukardi also highlight the sheer number of human resources assigned to the ATC is less. He said, the shortage of human resources have resulted in the officers who have to work beyond the time it should be. Eventually they were tired and not concentrating. Though to regulate air traffic, ATC personnel must have a high concentration.
As known, Mount Salak has had three top. Salak peak I has height 2211 meters above sea level (about 7253 feet). The peak of Mount Salak II is 2180 meters above sea level (7152 feet). There’s another one called Puncak Sumbul peak with an altitude of 1926 m above sea level (or 6318 feet).
Meanwhile, Sukhoi SSJ-100 was found to fall on top of Mount Salak I which has a height of 7152 feet. Wreckage seen at an altitude of 5800 feet, or 200 feet below the flight permission as the communication between the pilot with Soekarno Hatta airport control tower. The plane crashed into a cliff.
Sukhoi SuperJet 100 (SSJ100) passenger manifest

With such high flying hours and levels of proficiency the pilot , Aleksander Yablontsev,  of Sukhoi Superjet 100 pilot who crashed in the vicinity of Mount Salak , West Java, was qualified , however it was the first time for him to try out new air path in Indonesia. Russian pilots to fly the Sukhoi believed in his first demonstration event in Jakarta.
“The pilot flew the first time in Indonesia” said business consultant of PT Trimarga Rekatama, Sunaryo, Thursday (10/05/2012), at the Halim Perdana Kusuma airport. PT Trimarga Rekatama is a seller’s agent of Sukhoi Superjet 100 in Indonesia.
According to Sunaryo, the pilot had done preparation before flying. Any pilot who will fly the aircraft must provide flight plan for the airport authority approved. “It is impossible to fly the plane if it does not do the preparation” said Sunaryo.
Despite the first-time broadcast in Indonesia, the pilot, said Sunaryo, was pretty experienced. “The pilot was flying the Sukhoi aircraft from Russia, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Myanmar, and Indonesia” Sunaryo said.
Based on the passenger manifest issued by PT Trimarga, there are eight Russian citizens from Sukhoi and participated in the flight, which are Aleksandr Yablontsev (pilot), Aleksandr Kochetkov (copilot)Oleg Shvetsov (aero navigator), Aleksey Kirkin (flight engineer),Dennis Rakhmanov (leading flight test engineer), Nikolay Martyshenko (test flight deputy head), Evgeny Grebenshchikov(sales director Sukhoi), and Kristina Kurzhukova (contract manager).

Who is Alexander Yablontsev exactly?

Reading the history of his career, will make your eyes pop out. . This is an extraordinary man. No wonder he became the first pilot to be the test pilot and instructor of the SSJ 100 when the Russian government launched this world-class aircraft.
Yablontsev is a retired Russian Air Force with the rank of lieutenant colonel. In the Air Force he started his career as a fighter pilot.
Then, in 1989-1996, 57-year-old man joined the cosmonaut corps (in the United States, the astronauts). He even became the youngest pilot in the pilot project space shuttle “Buran” Soviet era. Even so, he had never been flown into space.
In 1997, the program “Buran” was stopped. His career in the cosmonaut corps also ended. He swerved to the civil aviation industry. In civil aviation that he began to experience flying the Boeing 737 and also the business aspects of civil aviation.
In civil aviation, he began his career in the airline Transaero. But not for long, because he was dismissed due to the reduction of employees in the airline due to the Russian financial crisis in 1998.
Later, he had a career in  flying airline of  Transeuropean and Tupolev, Russian-made Tu-20. Soon, the company went bankrupt because of  Russian sluggish aviation industry. He resigned again.
From there, Yablontsev moved to the country’s civil aviation research institute (Civil Aviation State Research Institute).
A year later he became a flight inspector at the Center for Civil Aviation (Civil Aviation Central Office). There he served in several flight crew inspected the aircraft including the A320 Aibus.
He was also responsible for ensuring the practice and the ability of the pilot run as standard, and to evaluate the ability of pilots to flight quality gated.
“The job gives me the knowledge of things ‘behind the scenes’ of air transport” he said.
From there then he participate in Sukhoi commercial aircraft project began in 2004. Sukhoi requires expertise because it requires many adjustments to make commercial aircraft. Understandably, during this very focused on the production of Sukhoi fighter aircraft of which the production is now filling the ranks of military combat air fleet.
Prime trials Sukhoi Superjet 100 made in 2008. Yablonstev are driving the flight.
“I am very happy to be the first to fly this amazing aircraft. The aircraft is very great. I dare say this is the best airplane I ever flew as a captain” he recalled running a successful test flight four years ago.
First and Last time to Indonesia
On May 8, 2012, Yablonstev was proud to say it was his first time flying to Indonesia. It was also the first visit and the first flight in the region of Indonesia.
He came up with pride with the team to perform  Asia tour in order to promote commercial aircraft and the country’s pride.
As for the promo flight, Yablonstev was scheduled to fly SSJ 100 on Thursday, May 9, 2012 twice.
The first flight a success. Furthermore, at 14.00 am Jakarta Indonesia local time, the second flight demonstration flight took place.
Not good for Yablonstev. Success of the demo flight in a few countries not previously occurred in Indonesia. In the second flight, the plane went down and crashed into a cliff on Mount Salak.
Yablonstev end it all in Indonesia. Right on the flight and his first visit in this country. He too went along with his much admired a great plane.
