1988 ANTONOV An-28
Small airfields that do not have a concrete surface can not accept aircraft with retractable landing gear throughout the year, as this can lead to accidents. The sodden ground of the airfield will clog the niches for the landing gear entrance. It is on such flights that it is profitable to use the An-28. This aircraft is not afraid of changes in air temperatures, which allows it to be used for transportation in any climatic conditions, even in the most severe.
The take-off length of the aircraft with the maximum take-off weight is 260 m, and the landing distance is 170 m.
In addition to all these advantages, it is much more economical than its predecessor An-2.
