The two Antonov An-140 prototypes have completed about 700 test flights - over half of the required certification programme. Tests are now focused on areas such as high angle of attack, icing and hot and high operations. Series production is being prepared in Kharkov, Ukraine; Samara, Russia; and Isfaghan, Iran.

The tests are expected to be completed this year, with series production aircraft available in the first half of next year.
