Ukraine has found a "powerful investor" for the production of An-74 aircraft

SE "Kharkov State aviation manufacturing enterprise ”and the American Oriole Capital Group reached an agreement to attract“ powerful investments ”. According to the agreements, the Kharkov enterprise will receive an order for serial production of aircraft in the amount of $ 150 million, the Ukroboronprom concern reports.

The agreements were reached at the Dubai Airshow 2017 international exhibition, which is now taking place in Dubai.

“First of all, we are talking about serial production at the facilities of the state enterprise Kharkiv State Aviation Production Enterprise of An-74 airplanes in various modifications. In turn, Oriole Capital Group will receive the right to invest in the production, modernization and marketing of these aircraft. The key element of this strategic partnership is the modernization of the existing production, the full involvement of all 3000 specialists from the Kharkov enterprise, as well as the aircraft and avionics modernization program, which will help enhance the unique operational capabilities of the An-74 aircraft, ”leads blog Diana Mikhailova message Ukrainian concern.

In addition, the Kharkiv company will receive orders "for the manufacture of spare parts for aircraft, maintenance and training of pilots."

In other words, Kharkiv citizens should get a stable long-term development plan, which will ensure its efficient operation, expansion of production capacity, creation of new jobs and increase in profits.

This agreement on attracting investment from the United States is an extremely important event for Ukraine. For the first time, a powerful international investor comes to the aircraft building enterprise of our country, who plans to invest for many years. This is proof that Ukroboronprom enterprises are reliable world-class partners who guarantee quality and timely execution of orders,
declared the Director General of "Ukroboronprom" Roman Romanov.

According to him, “in practice, this is a clear signal, a“ green light ”for other investors who are now considering investment opportunities in the Ukrainian high-tech industry.”

Investment and operational support of Oriole will significantly increase the commercial production capabilities of the country in the region and beyond, and represents a strategic opportunity to demonstrate the combined partnership opportunities of Ukraine and the United States,
Romanov added.

The author of the material explains that Oriole Capital Group was founded by the leaders of Wamar International, a diversified manufacturing and service company engaged in the manufacture of armored vehicles, gas turbines and aircraft technologies, as well as the aviation logistics company Aero-Pioneer Group, which owns and operates aircraft in difficult conditions on behalf of large companies and international organizations.

Resource Note: “The very first attempt to get acquainted with this“ powerful investor ”gave very interesting results:

1. The site does not contain any information about managers or about ongoing projects. Empty website postcard. For a "powerful international investor, this is very strange.

2. The email address itself was registered on 16 May 2017.

3. Virtually no mention on the Internet before the "Kharkiv contract" about this company is not.

4. The company's office is located in a modest class B business center, office number 203.

5. Aero-Pioneer - a company specializing in air cargo in East Africa, its fleet no, revenue 9.6 million dollars, 48 ​​employees. Surnames of "American" managers: Konstantin Zhuchkov and Mikhailo Moiseenko. "

        Sometimes I just don’t understand: they are not at all aware of what is going on around them - no one needs them. If Western investors, no matter who boeing, airbus, embraer: they turn them into a workshop and a sign is removed, no one will let them develop. Only Russian investors are able to breathe life, but anyway they will leave the country 404, there is experience. And then if the Chinese do not get ahead.

    "..... Aero-Pioneer is a company specializing in air cargo in East Africa ..."

    Yeah. Africa is a trash museum of military equipment, both Soviet and Western. Africa is an “alligator” for swallowing it. The heyday, this is the 90s. Ruslans, or sea vessels, brought to large airfields, everything from Makarov and Kalash to tanks. A, AN-12, An-26 and Mi-8, bought by companies like a bee swarm, pulled it away. " good "all over Africa. Moreover, all this aviation armada, sold there like hot cakes, for such companies as one-day companies, remained there until it was completely unsuitable. I say this firsthand. yes

I just forgot to mention that from 2005 to 2009 they made 1 plane for the late Gaddafi. And for Kazakhstan since February 2014 they can’t finish the AN-74.

    Well, the fact that the Ukrainians “sucked” this American investor out of the finger, it became clear from the first words of the news. Just judging by the analysis of the market, I don’t see the queue for the An-74, I don’t see preliminary contracts for 200-300 cars, which makes all the noise around this car

      Yes, one-time orders are possible, but nothing more. This aircraft is very specific, ideal for solving special problems, but not quite suitable for mass freight or passenger traffic. You can take my word for it, I flew on it / from 1992 to 2005, flew 5500 hours. Practically on all modifications: An74; An74-200; An74T-100; An-74TK-100 (C). Wherever I have visited, what cannot be taken away from him is that by virtue of his characteristics he can provide the widest geography of flights. Served six races Paris-Dakar, Sahara flew along and across, in Greenland was at the North Pole - under a hundred landings on ice, and the swallow never let down. In the 90s they regularly drove to Chukotka, they overloaded the guard as if the plane, now I remember it’s becoming uncomfortable, but it was in demand because of this. According to the documents, if you fly, it’s not very beautiful on it, and the cargo compartment is too small. And as iron is an excellent aircraft, I retrained from An-24 to it, I felt the difference, as they say. It’s a pity, of course, that the start of mass production at the collapse of the Union was necessary if they immediately began to produce a series for the An-72 in the 80s, it was possible that it would have happened differently, and only about 50 cars could be assembled at different plants.

    It is interesting what kind of "mass production" of the AN-74 can be discussed in the context of 150 million dollars? A series of a maximum of 2 aircraft or what? Recently there was information that Antonov was deprived of commercial management and the income from the freight of An-124 and 224, Antonov used to do this directly with charterers, but now they are left with only the design and production of aircraft, which is most likely financed by subsidies. And now Ukroboronprom appears with a laying company ... This story smacks of ...

    A purely American business, the so-called risk contracts. A company with ties to the State Department concludes a contract with an enterprise in a country that has major problems. Money is not placed in fixed capital, but in working capital, where it is quickly stolen and the contract is broken. But since the contract was originally concluded with the support of the satellite state, the American company, using the influence of the State Department, not only receives the money back invested, but also lost profits. Nothing personal just business.
