Ukrainian An-178 assembled without Russian parts


Ukrainian Aviation Plant "Antonov" has finished assembling the first medium transport aircraft An-178, devoid of Russian parts. The president of the state enterprise Alexander Los told about this to representatives of local media.


Although the assembled An-178 is also difficult to call Ukrainian - two-thirds of it consists of American components.

This is the first aircraft we assembled without parts from Russia. Since 2014, after the aggression of Moscow and the seizure of Crimea from us, we have lost not only the market for finished products, but also the ability to supply important components. Measures for import substitution and the search for supplier firms took some time

- noted the general director of the aircraft plant.

The aircraft is being built by order of the Ministry of the Interior of Peru, the contract expiration date is 2021. Four more such An-178s are currently in production for the countries of Asia, Turkey and Latin America. Main purpose equipment - work on the evacuation of the population, delivery of rescue teams and troops, transportation of military equipment.

Previously, the share of Russian spare parts in Ukrainian aircraft reached 50-60 percent. It was possible to replace Russian components only in the An-178, while in other models this has not yet been possible - in the An-148 and An-158 about half of the Russian parts.

    The fact that Ukraine itself has abandoned sales markets, they keep silent about this, so modestly. And in fact of the event itself, well, I'm glad, very glad. And then what? Nobody talks about the cost of such an aircraft and who will order it? The mountain once again gave birth to a mouse that no one needs, well, perhaps the top managers of "Antonov", who will take part in the "cut" of the budget for this plane.

    Assembled without Russian parts, but two-thirds of it consists of American components. One plane was sold to the Peruvian police, by the way, an anti-corruption investigation has recently begun there into the purchase of the plane. Well, okay .... will start to produce airplanes and then the managers of all 17 American civil aircraft manufacturing companies, from Boeing, Lockheed, McDonald Douglas and others, all of them will just think ... but how else can we help the Ukrainian state enterprise Antonov what else to give them, so that they seriously enter the international market of the aircraft industry ...

    Almost like a song - laughing "I blinded him from what was, and then what was, then ... I unstuck it again." sad

    Upon completion of the certification, the long-suffering first copy can be disassembled again, then reassembled with European parts, then a new certification ... You can talk about the success of the independent aviation industry for several more years. winked

      Who will fix this miracle of monkey thought with a combined center of gravity? Spare parts manufacturers or macaques stuck in the fuselage? To do a routine inspection, you will have to visit half the world ... there is no ukrov to subscribe to this.

          It is clear that only one can rise into the air (and even then with ballast). It is also clear that the second of the incomprehensible components being assembled will be checked and certified for a long time. The question is that with normal planes from whom they bought, from that and repaired. Ukrov will only be able to repair the fuselage.

        Seryozha, have you analyzed the Superjet? Not? Well, sort it out for the details of the countries of origin. Then you will scream. laughing

    The only thing left to do was to sell the planes to the country in which they bought "alternative" components.
    Weak?

    What about the price? Is the line already lined up?
    Looking at the "non-brothers", I understand that they really have nowhere to put their money! So they squander them into all sorts of projects, devoid of even a ghostly perspective, or simply cut them.

    Well, well, and again we are to blame for not taking their planes. They themselves have stopped trading with us in all technical goods. Only this is what even one aircraft they assembled will cost. And if it still flies, it needs to be processed at least a year or two. Let's see what they get. The West does not need their transporters. The US will not support the "Antonovites", why should they reduce their piece of bread.
  7. If a 2/3 airplane consists of American parts, then why bother with its development and production? it's easier to just buy a plane in America!

      Yes, the funniest thing is not! The funny thing is that there are two copies and that's it! There won't be anything else. Steam whistle!
