The general director of Aeroflot spoke about the investigation of the SSJ-100 disaster.

A month and a half has passed since the crash of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 passenger aircraft at Sheremetyevo Airport, but the CEO of Aeroflot, Viktor Saveliev, has just now spoken publicly about the crash.

According to Vedomosti, during a speech at the annual meeting of shareholders, Saveliev expressed condolences to the relatives of the victims. The CEO also announced at this meeting that the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC), which published the crash report, has quite a lot of questions for Aeroflot, but the company also has questions for IAC.

According to Savelyev, in 2018, Aeroflot exceeded the safety standard. The percentage of indicators at the standard - 99,9 percent, the company - 99,974 percent.

The preliminary report of the IAC is published on 14 June. He was accepted by the technical commission. In its composition there are experts from all sides: MAK, Rosaviatsia, Aeroflot, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft.

The report stressed that after hitting the lightning liner, the autopilot was disconnected and there were problems with communication. Up to this point there were no problems.

The essence of the IAC's questions to Aeroflot, Saveliev did not tell. Probably in the near future this will be known.
