In 2016, a flight sample of Faraz-140T transport aircraft will be assembled in Iran

The first flight model of the Faraz-140T military transport aircraft, developed on the basis of the Ukrainian An-140, will be assembled in Iran in the 2016 g, reports MIC with reference to an unnamed member of the Iranian delegation, who arrived at MAKS-2015.

“We intend to assemble the first prototype of the Faraz-140T for flight tests in the 2016 year. A sample for ground testing has already been collected, ”a source said.

According to him, in the near future several tests will be conducted, however which ones, the source did not specify.

The transporter, created on the basis of An-140, retained the external similarity with the original Ukrainian model.

“Cooperation with Ukraine on this issue continues, although the current crisis has somewhat complicated it,” the source said. He also said that Iranian specialists "are ready to fully start their own production of a new aircraft."

Iran, he said, needs these machines and "intends to produce as many of these planes as it can."

Earlier in Iran, a license was produced by IrAn-140 (IrAn-140) with the support of the Antonov state enterprise.

“At the moment this program is minimized due to a number of accidents. In case of solving technical problems, it can be restarted, ”the source added.

Help "MIC": "The maximum capacity of the Faraz-140T - 6 tons, flight range - 3900 km, height - 7200 m, maximum speed - 533 km / h."

      That I remember this contract under Azarov concluded. There, some Iranians bought, some assembled from spare parts at home, and the last part of the contract already launched a license issue at home. Wash only 100 units.

        At one time, Iran turned to the Ilyushin Design Bureau with a request to give a license for the release of IL-114. our guys bent so much that the Iranians refused.

      I saw it, the Iranians presented it at the MAX yesterday. They showed TTX, my grandfather is a pilot, so he became uncomfortable. Either Antonov was completely bent, or the Iranians were crooked monkeys. In short, this Faraz is a complete nightmare. For all my dislike of the Chinese, I have to look at classmates of Chinese origin or Czech. But those engines are not so hot.

    Well, some of Antonov’s experts are lucky. Go on a business trip, there will be work.

    I have a double feeling: - on the one hand, I feel sorry for the Iranians ("The maximum carrying capacity of the Faraz-140T is 6 tons, the flight range is 3900 km, the height is 7200 m, the maximum speed is 533 km / h.") An-2 instead of one An-140 was taken, it would be more reliable. - on the other hand, I would like to support the Ukrainian (namely Ukrainian, not pro-Poroshenko) Antonovites. But after all, making money Antonovtsy will somehow support the ATO, so I put "-".

      As I understand it - your "-" is an assessment of the fact, but putting it you put a minus to the author of the article. In general ... chop off the head of the one who reported the bad news. And he didn't deserve it.

      I would like to support the Ukrainian Antonov

      I do not see any special support in this: the Antonovans are launching the production of their aircraft in the country of demand, which ultimately will lead to a reduction in their own output. Before that, a similar contract was actually concluded with the Saudis. While the technical potential remains, it is used by countries that have the capacity to deploy their aircraft, where it has not been since the beginning of the centuries.

    Iranians bought unique machines and presses for their aircraft factory at the collapsing TAPOiCh in Tashkent. And not far and cheap.

    For Iran, it is quite acceptable. Yes, if you also have your own assembly.

    Iranians do not really hope for lifting the sanctions. Work for themselves. Engines only who will supply them? Really will release themselves?

      It is noted that customers are the Azerbaijani company Silk Way Airlines and the Chinese company Beijing A-Star airspace and technology Co. Delivery dates and contract details have not been disclosed.
      Earlier it became known that Antonov plans to develop aircraft manufacturing in Latin America.
      Recall, April 16, Antonov plant introduced its new transport aircraft An-178.

        You understand that the Antonov factory can no longer produce airplanes since there was a social breakdown and it takes 10 years to restart production. And the help of the Russian Federation or the EU is needed.

    Good AN planes, but banderlogs ruined everything.
