The Sukhoi S-80 is a Russian twin-turboprop, twin-boom STOL transport aircraft.


Four pre-series S-80 aircraft were constructed: one static test airframe, one flying prototype, one full-size mockup and one fatigue test airframe.[1] Aircraft 01-02 made its first flight on 4 September 2001.


There are two different models of Su-80. The four pre-series aircraft were of a short-fuselage design, while the fifth, sixth and seventh prototypes were stretched by 4 ft 7 in (1.4 m) allowing an extra row of passenger seats.[1]
