The An-132, the Antonov state aircraft manufacturing enterprise’s new airplane, will be rolled out in December this year. Assembly of a demonstrator An-132 aircraft is nearing completion at the Antonov serial production plant (formerly known as the Aviant plant), the Antonov state aircraft manufacturing enterprise told the CFTS portal.

Photographs confirming that the aircraft is almost ready have appeared on the Facebook social network: the fuselage is fully assembled and the wings and Pratt & Whitney Canada-produced engines have been installed.

As the CFTS previously reported, serial production of the An-132 is expected to be launched in Saudi Arabia after assembly of the demonstrator.
