Antonov An-50 (draft)
The An-50 was a design for a passenger aircraft. Antonov Design Bureau developed it in 1972 on the basis of a turboprop An-24RV TTX design. The construction of the plane was of the normal aerodynamic scheme. Engines were installed in pairs on the project on pylons under the wings.
The An-24 was created under the direction of General Aircraft Designer OK Antonova. The An-24 was equipped with two AI-24 turboprop engines designed by AG Ivchenko with a capacity of 2550 hp each. with four-bladed AV-72 flying vane screws with a diameter of 3.9 m with automatically variable pitch. The An-24 is an all-metal, freestanding monoplane with a high-wing wing, single-tailed tailplane with a forkill and a three-wing retractable landing gear.
The An-50 design is an airplane of a normal aerodynamic scheme, high-altitude. Engines for the project were installed in pairs on pylons under the wings. Power plant was paired TRD AI-25 (each 1750 kg each) in two gondolas on pylons under the wing. According to calculations with a takeoff weight of 24,600 kg, the cruising speed is 490 km / h; practical ceiling - 9400 m; the take-off run length is 520 m, the run-640 m. The project was completed in 1972, but the aircraft was not built.
