Antonov State Enterprise (Kyiv) has set a goal of passing the certification at the Federal Aviation Administration of the United States (FAA) by late 2020 and ensuring the switch of production facilities to NATO standards, the press service of the enterprise reported.
According to the report, the goals are outlined in the production development plans for 2018-2020 drawn up by Antonov managers.
Antonov said that in 2016, the enterprise was reorganized and design structure was brought in line with the requirements of the aviation rules of Ukraine (Part 21, Chapter J). The rules were drawn up to implement the rules of the European Union by Ukraine.
“Compliance with the Part 21 requirements allowed Antonov to cooperate with leading foreign suppliers of equipment, acting as an integrator. Cooperation with famous leaders of aviation industry, such as Honeywell (the United States) and Pratt & Whitney (Canada), has been established. The companies qualified their products for installing them at Antonov aircraft in line with U.S. FAA rules,” the enterprise said.
Flight Test Center has been created at Antonov. This gives hope to receive the certificate from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the press service said.
“Certification of the enterprise and An aircraft at FAA would allow considerably expanding the markets for sale of the planes,” Antonov said.
The press service said that the enterprise intended to develop a comprehensive system for supporting operators of An aircraft and open regional servicing centers in India, South Africa, Columbia, Sudan, Bulgaria and Malta by late 2020.
Antonov also plans to re-equip the enterprise in cooperation with western Brotje and MTorres, improve organization structure, develop IT solutions via the introduction of the IT Enterprise software in 2018-2020. (Interfax-Ukraine/Business World Magazine)
