Ukraine will start production of the largest aircraft in the world in China

The production of the largest aircraft in the world An-225 “Mriya” will be launched in China. This is stated in the report of the Corporation Ukroboronprom, which includes the manufacturer of the An-225 Antonov.

China will set up a joint serial production of the an-225 in China under license of “Antonov”. To this end, Ukraine needs to build a single copy of the An-225, and put it in China. This follows from the agreement, which was signed by Antonov and the Chinese Aerospace Industry Corporation of China (AICC).

Earlier in the message, published on Chinese TV channel CCTV in Facebook said that the Chinese company China and “Antonov” signed an agreement according to which China “the ownership will be transferred on a giant aircraft Transporter an-225, including the use of drawings and specifications of the aircraft.”

Later, the Corporation “Antonov” has denied the information about the sale of rights to the aircraft, said the Agency UNIAN in the Corporation.

In may 2016 An-225 flew to Australia. He was brought from the Czech Republic power generator, weighing 117 tons.
