A further development of the Su-29. It has an even more impressive performance, and has sales success in the UK, Australia, the USA and elsewhere. The new wing is 70 per cent by weight composite materials. The pilot's seat is inclined at 35 degrees, allowing an expert flyer to fully exploit the Su-31's g tolerance of +12/-10.

The first prototype flew in June 1992. In production since 1994.


  • Su-31T - standart version;
  • Su-31M - ejection seat;
  • Su-31X - export version;
