Less than ten years after the first SaM146 delivery, PowerJet has delivered the 400th engine to Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCAC) final assembly line. . PowerJet supplies SCAC with a purpose-designed, integrated propulsion system to power the Sukhoi SuperJet 100 regional jet. Over the years, PowerJet has continued to develop and extend its capacities to deliver SaM146 engines in line with the requirements of SCAC.

Within PowerJet, Safran Aircraft Engines develops the high-pressure core, the accessory gearbox, and the control system. The French company is also responsible for propulsion system integration and flight tests. UEC Saturn develops the fan module, the low-pressure compressor and turbine, and is responsible for final engine and ground tests in its facility in Rybinsk, Russia.

Since starting revenue service in 2011, the SaM146 has logged more than 1.3 million flight hours with approximately 15 operators around the world. The fleet-leader engine operated by Yakutia has logged more than 9,600 flight hours without removal.
