The Antonov An-148 ( _uk. Антонов Ан-148) is a regional jet aircraft produced by the Ukrainian aircraft firm Antonov. In December 2006 the An-148 completed certification testing and on February 26, 2007 received its type certificate with the Motor Sich D-436-148 engines [ [http://www.motorsich.com/eng/products/aircraft/tde/d-436-148/ D-436-148 ] ] and AI-450-MS Auxiliary Power Unit, a variant of the -9 APU series [ [http://www.motorsich.com/rus/products/auxiliary/ai-450-ms Ïðîäóêöèÿ è ñåðâèñ ] ] , from the Interstate Aviation Committee Aviation Register (IAC AR)cite news

] . There are plans to certify this airplane according to Joint Aviation Authorities JAR-25 standards, as the existing certification have already been designed to meet the ICAO Ch. 4 (noise and environmental requirements) as well as the established Western European airworthiness rules [ [http://www.antonov.com/news/index.xml Website "Antonov": News ] ] .

Design

The An-148 aircraft is a high-wing monoplane with twin jet turbine engines mounted in pods under the wing. This arrangement protects the engines and wing structure against damage from foreign objects (FOD). A built-in auto-diagnosis system, auxiliary power unit, high reliability, as well as the wing configurating allow the An-148 to be used at poorly equipped airfields. Modern flight and navigation equipment, multifunctional displays and a fly-by-wire system enable the An-148 aircraft to operate day and night, under IFR and VFR weather conditions on high density air routes. The An-148 cockpit features five 15 cm by 20 cm (6" by 8") LCDs built by Russia’s Aviapribor and fly-by-wire flight controls (using technologies developed for the An-70 cargo transport) The wing and fuselage are adapted from those used on the An-74 jet transport.

Variants

The An-148-100 regional aircraft is the main model of the An-148. It seats 70 passengers at 34 in pitch (864 mm) or up to 80 passengers at 762 mm (30 in) pitch in a one class 2+3 seating layout. The aircraft is also configurable in a multiple-class layout which can carry fewer passengers, typically with 4 abreast business class.

For Siberian operators, Antonov plans a model with a higher gross weight and additional fuel capacity in the center tank, extending the range with 75 passengers from 1,187 nmi to 1,943 nmi. An “E” variant is also planned to offer a special 2,752-nmi-range, which would serve as a platform for the "E1", capable of for non-stop Moscow-Vladivostok (3,777 nm) services carrying 44 passengers.

There are also proposals for a stretched -200 series aircraft, 5.3 m longer which would seat 90–100 passengers (source: http://www.ifc-leasing.com/en/an-148.php).

The list price for the An-148-100 has been set at $18-20 million USD. Antonov claims direct operating costs will be 25-30 percent lower than an Embraer 170.

In April 2005, the An-148, received its first order from Ilyushin Finance Co. (IFC) leasing company and the airline company Krasair signed a lease agreement for 10 aircraft with an option on 5 units valued at $270 million. [cite news
