On April 12, 2016, on the International Day of Aerospace industry, ANTONOV Company was visited by His Excellency Geoffrey R. Pyatt, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of USA to Ukraine. Mykhaylo Gvozdov, President of ANTONOV Company, told to Ambassador about modern programs of the enterprise. 

During the visit, the high guest and other representatives of the Embassy surveyed the world biggest transport aircraft AN−124−100М−150 Ruslan and AN−225 Mriya. Telling about the meeting purpose, Ambassador, in particular said, that he was born in San−Diego, California, which is considered as the aerospace capital of the United States. That is why, he always paid attention to the aerospace industry. «АNTONOV is a giant ofthe international aerospace world and a  symbol of Ukraine’s human and technical», said His Excellency. «There is probably no better symbol of that than the AN−225, the “Mriya”.But I was encouraged also to hear from President Gvozdov what Antonov is doing looking to the future – the AN−132.  This  new  transport is developed in partnership with American companies, like Pratt&Whitney, which deliveries the engines. This is an area where the United States and American companies have established a record of global leadership and Antonov is a natural partner in this effort. We also have an experience of cooperation within AN−148 and AN−158 program. There are more than 25 American companies, which are involved in partnership with ANTONOV whether as suppliers, technology sharers, or developers. These include both American transnational corporations, small and medium−sized American companies, which provide highly specialized parts and services. I have said on several locations, that I am very optimistic about the prospects  and continue programs of US−Ukrainian defense technology co−production and cooperation».

President of ANTONOV Company obliged the high guests for the visit and emphasized, that «the meeting is very important for development of the existing fruitful cooperation between our countries».
