State-owned Antonov plane maker plans to switch to US federal civil aviation authority certification and NATO standards by late 2020.
In 2016, Antonov restructured the company to fit to EU regulations (Part 21).
This allowed the company to cooperate with leading foreign suppliers of equipment.
As a result, Honeywell, USA, and Pratt & Whitney (Canada) supply their equipment for Antonov planes.
Certification of Antonov along FAA standards will allow to expand sales worldwide.
Antonov announced its production target of 70 planes for the next 5 years.
