Production of An-178 will be equipped with the new motor production Motor Sich
The Antonov state enterprise has a firm contract with Azerbaijan for the production of ten aircraft An-178
In the next five years the state enterprise Antonov with a favorable scenario, expects to release a minimum of five to eight aircraft, ideally ten. This was announced by the President of the company Alexander Donets in an interview LIGA.net
“My priority is the An-178, a ramp because that aircraft has always been famous for Antonov. And then it’ll run the 158-th machine. Also would love to continue working on the drones. But much depends on the customer,” said Donets.
According to him, production of An-178 will be equipped with new engines of production of the Motor Sich D 436ФМ.
Donets also noted that Antonov has a firm contract with Azerbaijan for the production of 10 aircraft An-178, however, they will be made after the full import substitution of Russian components and testing.
“Two weeks ago the Azerbaijani delegation came to us to negotiate. I should note that they are professionally fit to the issue, are well acquainted with the situation, realizing that we cannot build and deliver a car with Russian components. The plane they need, so the customer is willing to wait until we finish the work on import substitution,” said Donets.
Recently Antonov Ruslan flight showed at the exhibition in Turkey.
