Short-range, jet aircraft Antonov An-158, is a further modification of the aircraft AN-148, and is designed for use in local and regional passenger in routing.
Antonov An-158, 99 can carry up to passengers in Economy class, or up to 86 people in two classes at a distance of three thousand kilometers, with a cruising speed 820 kilometers per hour.
History of the AN-158, dates back to the creation of short-haul airliner An-148-100. Initially, the new aircraft project referred to as An-148-200, but was later renamed as the An-158. Aircraft An-158, became longer than its predecessor at 1,7 meters, thanks to two additional sections in the fuselage. The first section, the length of 1,15 meter was placed in the fuselage nose, front wing and the second section, the length of 0,55 meters, was located just behind the wing of the aircraft.
The cockpit is equipped with modern avionics, and includes five multi-function screen to display flight information and control of all on-board systems. All Avionics and Aircraft, as well as its management, maintenance and operation of the new airliner, has a high commonality with the AN-148 plane. This makes it easy to turn over pilots with AN-148-158 the AN, and also eliminates the need for re-training of ground staff, maintenance of new aircraft, due to the overall system operation, maintenance and crew training. According to the State Enterprise "Antonov" in the plane AN-158, we managed to reduce the operating costs of 12 percent and fuel consumption per passenger on 9 percent.
Wing AN-158 has also been modified. It now has end aerodynamic surface, which reduces fuel consumption. The tail feathers of the aircraft, as well as the An-148, has a "T" - shaped structure.
The navigation equipment of the aircraft AN-158, allows you to make passenger flights in all weather conditions and at any time of the day. Airliner can be used in climates with ambient temperatures of up to + 50 -45 degrees Celsius, as well as on the high ground. This was confirmed in February 2011, during the test on one of Iranian airfields located at an altitude of 2200 meters above sea level.

21.10.2013 - have been completed testing the aircraft AN-158 in the mountainous areas in Latin America. Concerning this aircraft program has successfully overcome all flight and ground test operation at high altitudes, based on the ground, the height of which reaches 4000 meters above sea level. Airfields in which An-158 working out the test program, - of Latacunga, Ecuador and the city of La Paz, Bolivia (2800 and 4000 meters above sea level respectively).
An-158 - modern popular regional aircraft. SE "Antonov" in cooperation with the Russian leasing company "Ilyushin FinansKo." Signed contracts for the sale of these aircraft 20.
The contract, signed at the Paris Air Show 21.06.2011, different advanced package of guarantees provided by the enterprise "Antonov" in the after-sales service of its aircraft, including the guarantee of low maintenance, reliability, resource and performance characteristics, the regularity of flights.
