An-140 was also mentioned at the meeting on the development of aircraft industry, which was held under the guidance of President of Russia 12 May, as one of the four possible options for a regional aircraft. In fact, An-140 is the only one of the options presented that has not actually been produced for the first year in Russia - here, at Aviakor, ”the company’s CEO Alexey Gusev quotes.
“To organize the large-scale production of this aircraft, we have everything we need, including technical and production competencies acquired over the years. Of course, the question of the dependence of our production on the Ukrainian developer and suppliers remains topical, but if the import substitution program for An-140 is implemented, the production of this aircraft would be the least expensive of all types of aircraft presented to the President in the framework of the regional aviation development project, ”added Gusev.
