On June 1, 2016, the Berlin Air Show ILA−2016 was opened. ANTONOV’s  delegation at the exhibition is headed by Mykhaylo Gvozdov, President of the Company.

ANTONOV specialists presented a new AN−178 transport and other programs of the advanced transports and special−purpose aircraft to the attention of the fair participants.

Under adverse weather conditions, rain and low cloud, the air show organizers permitted to fly to German A400M transport and Ukrainian AN−178 only. The An−178 became a debutant of the flight display at the international air show. After the weather improvement, the flight program continued in accordance with the schedule.

In Berlin’s cloudy sky, the AN−178 capabilities were demonstrated by ANTONOV’s test crew consisting of: Andrii Spasibo, the crew captain, Sergii Troshin, co−pilot, Mykola Sydorenko, test flights engineer. The aircraft performed aerobatics for the transport: returns to the left and right, horizontal flight with minimum speed, steep climb followed by right bank and landed.
