The AN-132 programme is a collaboration between ANTONOV Company and partners from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) and the Taqnia Aeronautics Company. World leading suppliers from the global aviation industry are also involved in the programme.

The AN-132 is to become a worthy addition to ANTONOV’s family of aircraft. In recent years, several of these aircraft have been presented to the international aviation community during the Paris Air Show.

An-132D multirole military aircraft successfully completed its maiden flight on March 31, flying from the airdrome of Sviatoshyne to Hostomel airfield in Ukraine.

The An-132D differs from its predecessor, the AN-32 aircraft, with a higher level of technical, economic and flight performance data: lifting capacity is increased by 23%, flight range is 1.72 times longer while carrying 6 t of cargo, higher fuel efficiency, lower level of noise and emission.
