Se alguém ten informação sobre consumo de combustível, pista utilizada por este avisão 248 / 158

Everyone who writes here that flew AN 158: You deer! Because You can not fly on 158-m them all (yet) 6 pieces and they are all in Cuba .. and fly you to the Academy of Sciences of 148 rasseyskoy assembly in Voronezh and Voronezh assembly is a rare but th @ !!!

I think An-158 far from perfect plane. Personally, I'm not satisfied with anything, and I hope that the more I do not have to fly on this machine. After we landed, I had a wild headache, I thought I'll go crazy. I sat at the end of the cabin, can, of course, also is influenced, but I'm sure that even close is no longer suited to this aircraft.

I flew on a plane AN-158 any one time, and I think that this car can be called a tin can. If you can not do anything with the noise, then all people will hate this aircraft soon. On such a machine needs only to carry cargo, but not passengers. When the height is changing, even wool in the ears does not help, your ears just fade away. But I can also note the plus-158 An almost shakes on the way, but rather in the general plane can and reliable, but it is not comfortable.

The layout of the airframe is not thought out. The engines are located by the portholes, the wing is on top of the fuselage. Because of this, the cabin is very vibrant and noisy. On the flights that An-158 performs, you can, along with tickets, sell gags in your ears. When the Union often had to fly to the Antonovs, after landing always felt a strong headache. And once accidentally got into the last rows of the salon. To my surprise there was much quieter. Then I realized that the ticket offices of the airports in the front of the salon were "vparished" only by the youth. Foreign airplanes have much better sound insulation to the salon, so there is a business class in front of them, the Antonovs apparently decided to excel.
