The Antonov An-2 was meticulously and ingeniously designed by the visionary engineer Oleg Antonov and made its maiden flight in the year 1947. With its exceptional performance and versatility, it was extensively deployed for agricultural, military, and transport applications. It was renowned for its exceptional ability to take off on short and substandard runways, which greatly contributed to its prolonged operational life. The An-2 was produced up until 2001 and still remains actively used by military and private owners around the world.

The renewal of the fabric on the Antonov An-2 was accomplished in Hungary on January 3, 2000. A 50/50 mix of synthetic and cotton fabric was used. The condition of the fabric is tested annually during the aircraft’s inspection. As the aircraft has always been stored in a hangar, the fabric’s condition remains good.

The airframe logs comprise 7 full-size binders. The airframe’s last official full overhaul was completed on July 12, 1989, at VEB Dresden. It currently has a total of 7,417 hours and 883 hours remaining before its next overhaul.

The propeller has only 86 hours since its fifth overhaul and completed its most recent life extension maintenance in 2021, with the next due in 2027.

Airframe : All-metal single bay biplane wings with fabric covering, 770 sq ft wing area with slats and drooping ailerons, all-metal semi-monocoque fuselage, and braced all-metal tail with fabric covering.

Landing gear : This aircraft features a typical configuration (tail wheel design). The main mounts are equipped with long stroke oleo shock absorbers and a self centring tail wheel, ensuring a smooth landing every time.

Controls : Manual cables and pushrods control the ailerons, elevators, and rudders while flaps and trim are powered electrically. Additionally, leading edge slats are installed to provide a safer experience during slow speed flights and increase lift capacity.
