Description: The Antonov An-38 is a light, twin-engine, turboprop aircraft based on the An-28 and intended to transport passengers and cargo on regional routes. Compared with the An-28, the An-38 features stretched fuselage, more powerful engines and improved cockpit and cabin comfort. The aircraft's design allows for operation from unprepared, snow/ice-covered and short runways. Antonov provided the An-38 with a weather radar and day/night capability. The engine options include both Russian and American engines: TVD-1500, TVD-20 (An-38-200) and/or Honeywell TPE331-14GR-801E (An-38-100 and An-38-120).
The first production An-38-100 took to the sky on June 22, 1994. In April 1997, Russian authorities awarded the An-38-100 AP-25 airworthiness certification. In March 2001, the An-38 was cleared for international flights. Both An-38-100 and An-38-120 models are powered by Honeywell engines and are equipped with western avionics. The An-38-120 version is provided with a more comprehensive avionics suite. The An-38-200 is powered by TVD-20 engines. The An-38D is a version primarily intended to provide delivery of airdropped paratroopers and equipment to military customers.
The An-38 was designed by Antonov in Kiev, Ukraine, and is produced by NAPO at Novosibirsk, Russia. These two companies formed the joint venture Siberian Antonov Aircraft that is responsible for production, sales and after-sales support of the An-38 aircraft.
