The Kyiv-based 410 Civil Aviation Plant is overhauling light transport An-32 planes under a request of Bangladesh, the press service of the enterprise has reported.
According to a posting on the company’s website, recently the plant has received an An-32 plane from the Bangladeshi customer. The plant did not disclose the details of the contract, adding that this was the second An-32 from Bangladesh, which arrived to Ukraine for repair in 2017.
“The plane’s crew soon will return to their aviation base on board of the restored An-32, which arrived at the 410 Civil Aviation Plant in March,” the company said.
The first plane was tested before handing it to the customer, the press service said.
The press service said that the 410 Civil Aviation Plant had customers from Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, India, Hungary and Sudan.
The 410 Civil Aviation Plant is the sole enterprise in Ukraine that repairs Antonov aircraft and D-36 engines. Since June 2015, the enterprise has been a part of the Ukroboronprom State Concern. In July 2015, the enterprise was certified its compliance with NATO standards. (Interfax-Ukraine/Business World Magazine)
