Working models of the destroyed cargo plane available for purchase, with all profits going toward Antonov’s staff rehousing, training, and MRIYA AN-225 reconstruction Ukrainian technology company Awery Aviation Software (Awery) has pledged its support for an initiative, launched today, aimed at the protection and development of Ukraine’s aviation industry, including the rebuilding of the ANTONOV MRIYA AN-225. Ukrainian startup company Metal Time has developed a working mechanical design kit model of the MRIYA AN-225 cargo plane, profits from the sale of which will be donated to Antonov for: the rebuilding of the Mriya aircraft; the rehousing of Antonov employees whose homes were destroyed by Russia; and the education and training of new aviation engineers and pilots for Ukraine. “Awery cannot stand by when Ukrainian cargo aviation is destroyed economically and physically, and so it was an easy decision for us to help promote the initiative by communicating this great project as much as we can,” said Vitaly Smillianets, Chief Executive Officer, Awery. “Since 1991, Ukraine has celebrated the 24th of August as its day of independence and so it couldn’t be more appropriate to launch this initiative today in our national bid to ensure that ANTONOV Aviation continues to be a major player in the project cargo international carrier market. "Please help us support this initiative by purchasing your model as soon as you can."
