biplane transport, used since 1947 with great succes and in many countries, despite its apparent obsolescence. Over
18000 may have been built. The An-2 was used as STOL transport, for training, as firefighting aircraft, as agricultural
aircraft, and in many other roles. The An-2 has also been built as floatplane (An-4);
the normal wheeled landing gear can easily be interchanged with skis. There is a meteorological version with a cabin in front
of the tailfin (An-6), and a An-2F experimental artillery spotter, with a extensively
glazed aft fuselage and a slender tail boom with twin fins.
For agricultural purposes a turboprop-engined version, the An-3 (SKh, "Selsko-Khosiajstwennij" = "Agricultural"),
was created recently.

Dragon Aviation - affordable quality "bush" planes for Latin
