he An-3 is a turboprop-engined development of the An-2. A rather unique concept, the An-3 was built because the jet-engined PZL M-15 biplane did not stand up to the rigours of agricultural work.
First flown in 1984.
December 12, 1985 at Podkievskoe Airfield (Ukraina, USSR) Vladimir Lysenko set altitude records in Sub-class C-1f (Take-off weight 6000 to less than 9000kg), Group 2 (turboprop engines) with 1000kg and 2000kg payload, pushing An-3 to 6100m
