I think An-140 remarkable aircraft. I do not know why so many complain and write negative reviews. As for me so I could fly every day on this machine. Anyway, I always had a dream to become a pilot, and if it did, I would only fly on the AN-140.

I have not seen the worst of aircraft than the An-140. I flew on this plane once more, probably never fly. The noise in the cabin is simply intolerable, rattles, rumbles plastic. When we landed, I drank a few hours headache tablets, I felt that I was driving without a break for the horse's day. Well, in general, if I have to choose, I would never fly on the AN-140. Let the chief designer of the aircraft will try to fly a few days on this machine, not wearing headphones.

I personally flew AN-140 many times. I think that this car is beautiful, nothing rattles when flying, chairs very comfortable, the cabin is comfortable and free. The toilet, of course was not, did not want to, but probably there all as expected. Some say that the An-140 makes a lot of noise, and so, as I say, that the hum is normal, therefore, is not particularly annoying. I've even sat near the engine, took out his phone and measured the noise for the entire flight of the most noise peak reached 72Db. Therefore, I believe that this will not prevent hum listen to music or watch a movie. There is one drawback, which I did not like one, but rather a bit harsh landing, when the plane touched the chassis, I felt a blow. But in general, all comfortable during the flight is not sick, not shaking, except that only a few have experienced the shaking when the car dropped, but trust me on our cars shakes much stronger when you go on rough roads. In general, the plane was a miracle!

Many people compare the An-140 with AN-24. But in fact, these aircraft are completely different. The first An-140 flies much quieter than the An-24. Moreover, An-140 emits less buzz, not only during takeoff and during the flight. And most interesting is that this machine can fly on one engine and take the dirt lane. That's why this aircraft none pales in comparison. Do not hurt people that car, better try it yourself to fly on this plane, to make sure its not right, if you're lucky!

Just landed in St. Petersburg. Write your feelings. Salon trimmed with stout plastic, no nothing rattles. Armchairs are soft, comfortable. He flew Boeing - there is less distance between the seats. About the toilet on board can not say anything because I do not go there. Noise has to say on a normal level, the noise is not annoying. You can watch videos and listen to music if someone irritates. I came across a place 08A, which is opposite the driver. Take-off was excellent, there were no shocks, the plane quietly and calmly took off. I do not even have time to notice the time when we took off. About landing good to say I can not, in my opinion it was a hard landing, Boeing sit softer. I feel a sharp blow in contact with the surface of the airport strip. It is not critical. The flight was fine. Maybe just lucky that flew in good weather conditions. Only during the landing a little shook, but those who travel by car on our roads shakes stronger. :) Overall, a good plane, fly it possible.
