History aircraft manufacturer has more than 60 years of fruitful activity. Today it is one of the few firms aircraft manufacturers with a complete production cycle - from preliminary laboratory research to the design, development, construction, testing, serial production and after-sales service.


Another pride of the company - highly skilled personnel. On the "Antonov" has about 12 000 employees and is 198 trades and professions. Scientific staff conducts research in the areas of 35, in particular rare, such as materials, avionics, thermal engineering, hydraulics, mechanics, strength and aerodynamics of the aircraft.


Main unit:

  • Experimental Design Bureau, is engaged in design, research, certification, support serial production of the aircraft.

  • The pilot plant, whose main task is to produce skilled experimental aircraft copies.

  • Finishing and flight test base, which are flight testing, debugging and certification of airplanes. Also, it is used for training pilots and engineering staff.

  • Service foremost experts on the projects.

In addition to these structures, as part of "Antonov" also stand out:

1) air carrier "Antonov Airlines" - a company that provides cargo deliveries to all regions of the world;

Uv. gentlemen! Please tell me, in the 70s (not without your participation) "Album for Modeling" was released in large format drawings and half-folded sheets - a book with descriptions. I had two of them. I can't find it on the net.

The guys do not give up, Grandfather said: ,, if Antonovtsev fails, disassemble, find and do as it should, (on Annushka from 2 to 22 Grandfather).

why did everyone fixate themselves on the name of the bandit. How many adulterers I was so proud that I am proud of the fact that in my country such aircraft are produced so keep the Antonovs

,, An-178 Multi-purpose transport aircraft. Release: 2014 Year Sold: 7 May 2015 of the Year ,, ,,
That's all ..... finita la comedy

have long produced nothing!

If AN 178 is called "Bandera", then the new MANPADS in the DPR will be called "Bogdan Stashinsky"
