A U.S. company plans to join forces with Kharkiv Aviation Plant to make airplanes for sale to third countries, Ukraine’s Ambassador to the US, Valery Chaly, tells reporters in Kyiv. “I will not say details, but a large investor is already entering the Ukrainian market for the joint production of aircraft,” Chaly said, without identifying the U.S. company. Overstaffed – 3,000 employees – and deeply in debt, the state company is a licensee for production of Antonov planes. Separately, Antonov signed a deal last month with Aviall, Boeing’s parts, equipment and services unit, to replace Russian parts and restart commuter jet plane production in Kyiv by the end of 2019.
