Antonov An-32

Antonov An-32


The An-32, named Cline by NATO codification, is a Soviet / Ukrainian multipurpose military transport aircraft. Its technical characteristics allow operation in extreme climatic conditions, including sultry temperatures (up to 50 ° C) and high-altitude airfields (up to 4500 m). The aircraft was intended primarily for the transportation of goods on medium and short-haul lines. The aircraft is also suitable for transporting military personnel, for carrying out operations for the landing of people and cargo platforms, in the ambulance version - for transporting the wounded.

Technical description

Antonov An-32 presented with an all-metal cantilever vysokoplanom odnokilevym tail fins and two ridges located beneath the fuselage. The vehicle has a rear cargo door and retractable landing gear in flight. As part of the power plant two turboprop engines located on a wing center section.

The crew consists of a pilot left (crew commander), right-pilot and navigator. The airframe is the main material of aluminum alloys. Components and assemblies that require high precision, are made of stainless steel. Widespread in the design and found non-metallic materials: fiberglass, fiber, etc. organostekloplastik.

The fuselage is made by the type of girder, stringer and semi-monocoque is divided into three compartments by a partition (in the area of ​​frames № 11, 40): fixing the tail compartment, middle and front. Home front fuselage compartment represented radome. It has a three-layer structure, and the honeycomb paneling made of fiberglass. The rest of the front and middle compartments sealed.

The control cabin is located between the frames and the number 1 7 number. The cabin has four side, two upper and three front windows. Front right and left glass electrowarmed made of laminated silicate. Blister navigator, whose diameter is 700 mm, located on the left side, there is an escape hatch in the ceiling of the cabin. The cargo compartment is located between the frames 7-33, from the control room is separated by a partition with a door. The cargo compartment has a height and a width of m 1,84 2,4 m. The load floor is made of power-studded frame and duralumin sheets.

As part of the longitudinal frame floor there zygomatic fuselage beams and extruded profiles, cross-frame is formed from the bottom of the frames. They have a slot for fixing and mooring sites. The cargo floor is an escape hatch, the opening of which is due to two hydraulic cylinders on the outside of the aircraft. Nearby there is a door, which dimensions are 600 x 1400 mm.

Each side of the cargo compartment has 4 windows. One of them is located in the emergency hatch. All glasses, except for the heated glass of the lantern, are made of approximate organic glass. The side and upper escape hatches and the entrance door are manually opened inside the cab. The cargo hatch is located between frames No. 33-45. It is sealed by an airtight shield and a rubber profile laid along the perimeter of the frame. When the cargo hatch is opened, the sash goes up, and the ramp deviates down to the ground, or rolls forward under the fuselage.

During recoil ramp deflection and can be fixed in an intermediate position.

Bay mounting busy feathering flight-navigation and radio equipment, which can be reached through hatches placed in the bottom pane.

Wing aircraft An-32 caisson type dvuhlonzheronnoe. It is composed of the center section, the two detachable parts (between the ribs 12-23) and two middle portion (between the ribs 7-12). The joints of the center-with those portions of the flange. Attaching the wing to the fuselage frames extends in number 17 and 20 by two arcs and eight fittings, which are attached to the side members and are connected to the skin of the fuselage.

Center section has a solid molded panel. The center wing caisson are soft 10 fuel tanks in the middle of the fuel tanks-tanks presented compartments.

Wing has good mechanization. It includes automatic slats, flaps, 15 m² area and ailerons. Each half-wing has 2 flap sections: external and internal. External section trehschelevye, drawers, have a fixed deflector and rotating the tail unit. Internal double-slotted flaps, similar to the external - with the tail rotary element and a fixed axis deviation. Flaps have a deviation angle landing 38 ° and on the rise - 15 °.

Each slat also has two console section. Holding slats is performed by the spring shock absorbers, and a flight mode release - under the influence of aerodynamic forces. The right and left ailerons two sections, with a weight balancing. Aileron deflection angles has 16 ° downwards and 24 ° upwards. Both root sections aileron servo tab kinematic installed, the left section is equipped with a trimmer. Trimmer aileron servo tab and are made of fiberglass and foam filler.

The aircraft has a free-carrying tail unit, which is made up of a height elevator with a stabilizer (an area of ​​20,3 m²) and a keel along with a rudder and a forkill (area of ​​16,7 m²). Kili and stabilizer arms have a two-lane structure, the rudders are single-sprued. The rudder, stabilizer and keel panels are glued together. Kili and stabilizer consoles dock with the fuselage using fittings. Rudders and heights have weight balancing and aerodynamic axial compensation. The elevator has an angle of deviation down 20 °, upwards 25 °, its area is 5,16 m². The elevator is composed of two halves, which are connected to each other by a shaft having cardan assemblies. Each of the halves of the elevator is equipped with a trimmer, and the rudder with a trimmer-servo compensator. Three-layer steering trimmers, honeycomb and aluminum sheathing.

Landing gear tricycle, with a nose wheel. Front desk polurychazhnogo type of cleaning it is held in podkabinnuyu niche. Key support telescopic design with the use of nitrogen-oil shock absorbers. The main wheels are equipped with disc brakes. centering device is released and the steering mechanism in the front part of the support. If you disable the wheel steering mechanism, they will be swiveling.

The structure of the power plant of the AN-32 has two turboprop engines AI-20D 5-generation, with AB-68DM air with four-screws, auxiliary power unit TG-16M and service their systems.

Motor AI-20D created by a single-shaft scheme and is made of a ten axial compressor, three-stage planetary gear axial turbine, jet nozzles and unregulated annular combustion chamber. The engine has a mechanical control. It is located in the nacelle of the wing so that its axis is at an angle to the wing 4 °. The engine nozzle is made of a titanium alloy.

hi ... i need assembly diagram of frame no.31 for this aircraft (AN-32) .please help. my email id is [email protected]

Hello. I want to share the experience of piloting the AN-32. The cabin of the aircraft, as opposed to AH-24 / 26, is not even bad. Large and comfortable equipment, perfectly grouped by system. Pretty failure display panel. Is that the future generation of cabs Anta - 28-74-124, would not come bad mechanical devices, but more vivid. The same situation with memo-circuit systems. MODERN electronics, or Glass-cockpit, good for a lot of flying aircraft, using only good airports with good electric systems.
When Sudan came APR-42 - a direct competitor, it had to because of these problems quickly (via e-2 weeks) fly ottudova. In contrast, at the AN-32 well managed Lockers and active reverse. There is of course a little noise, and vibration ... but it can be endured. The one on which I flew, however, was new and made especially for India. Therefore, the noise, it seems to me is not so dependent on the state as of the time of operation. In our case, thrown on the floor lead sheet metal. He put out good vibrations. Also obesshumili most cabin wall. We were able to communicate in a cabin without raising his voice.
So I liked it. Plane explanatory, is not the best course (I flew in the other 32-x, there was noisier) but still. If anyone knows that sewn into the walls for besshumki share.

Who is authorized to issue the AN-32 received in Saudi Arabia. These are the pies ... Sale of "intellectual property" threatens to ruin the company-manufacturer. Why not deal with the assembly in Ukraine? Yes, because the political dimension is displayed on all areas of the economy and the aircraft as well. Investors are not interested to invest in a country with unstable economy. That has to sell projects.
