Hello guys!

I just wanted to bring up the new beautiful and technological updated aircraft Antonov built!

The Antonov An-140

I would like to get some more info on it. Could you let me know who will be the operators of the aircraft, what routes will they fly, how many PAX can the aircraft hold on so on....

This is a 50 seater.
They sold the licence to Iran (that is building the Iran-140)
I can send you some data if you want.

Too bad it won't be certified in the US.

You probably could have made money down on the chain with a combi version.

L-188

you say "Too bad it won't be certified in the US".

Could you please tell me more about this?

Is it because this aircraft in particular doesn't meet standard requirements? Or it has only to do with airplanes designed and made in the former USSR...

I just want to learn about this certification process.

Thanks
Erico

The airplane surpasses all safety, and noise requirements that the FAA has, and is much cheaper to buy then any of its wester counterparts, but it will probably not be certified in the US because it will be too expensive, if Antonov had some potential customers in the US, then I could see them going through with the certification...Its too bad really, it is a nice aircraft and is much cheaper to operate then a dash-8 or dornier, with comparable performance specs, infact I think it even flies faster and higher then the dash, but Im not 100% sure about that.

I am pretty sure the Iran 140 project was scrapped, as there was no money for it to start up, but I could be wrong. I think the aircraft currently flying are all Ukrainian built version, im not sure if an Iran 140 was ever built.

I know very well the Antonov people. The A/C will be certified in the US if one airline express serious interest.
Every FAA standard is met and western engines/avionics can be adapted easiliy.

There is one place that desperately needs the An-140: Africa.

The Africans found out the very hard way that second hand An-8/12/24/26's flying for "flags of convenience" have poor maintainance and safety records. The An-140 could be very useful because the plane could be used to fly into gravel and dirt strips that are common on the African continent.

The engines are either Klimov/Motor-Sich (Ukraine) TV-3-117VMA-SBM1s or PW127As.

Can I get some of that "data" too? My email is in profile. Thanks!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The An-140 has a bit of a chequered history. Since the programs inception it has been met with design delays and basically a lack of customers.

A website on the aircraft http://www.an140.com states that the aircraft meets FAR-25, FAR-34 and FAR-36 FAA regulations. What I am not sure about is if this is enough for the aircraft to fly with an American carrier. Way back when the Il-96M was on the drawing boards, an agreement was reached with the FAA whereby Russian aircraft which had received Russian certification would also receive FAA certification. However, I am not sure whether this extends to aircraft built outside of Russia and covered under IAC certification.

The aircraft had been ordered by a number of airlines including Ukraine National Airlines and Ikar Airlines, but those orders have yet to be filled. (Ikar won't be receiving the aircraft due the airline no longer "operating"). IAC certification was received on 25 April 2000 and entered revenue service with Odessa Airlines earlier this year (2002), where it is used on domestic services and for flights to surrounding regions (including the Odessa-Moscow route).

Aeromist (Aeromost-Kharkov) has also taken delivery of an aircraft. The airline is owned jointly by Russian investors and INTERAMI (which is responsible for the interior of the aircraft).

Humm,
Really nice looking Russian Airliner. I'm very impressed about its looks, cause most of the Russian airliners don't look too nice. Well that is my opinion. I think some of them are too thin, too Fat and some are just too oversized...! This one is perfect. Humm Any plans on building a larger and nice looking aircraft such as the 737/A320 model variant?? Just curious..
Hope this one makes it in the real world!!!...

I hope Russia/Ukrain builds something US operators might even consider. You think thats possible?

The aircraft didn't "lose" an engine, rather the right engine suffered failure 125km from Odessa. The aircraft was the Odessa Airlines example shown in the photos in the first post and was returning from Thessaloniki with no pax on board.

Nothing major.

Just because a manufacturer says that a design meets standards doesn't mean that they actually took the time and the expense to move it through the certification process.
