Pilot training on the new Tupolev Tu-204CM (aka Tu-204SM) has started, reported the Russian industry newspaper Voyenno-promyshlennyy kur’yer on 7 March 2014.

Although no official customer has been disclosed by the Tupolev design bureau or the Aviastar-SP manufacturing plant, there are officially only three prototypes involved in the program.

The Tu-204CM is a much modernized version of the Tu-204-100E, using the new PS-90A2 engines with enhanced service life and reliability compared to their predecessors. The flight crew is treated with upgraded and new systems as well.
