Ukrainian tech company Awery Aviation Software (Awery) has pledged its support to rebuild the ANTONOV MRIYA AN-225, it stated in a press release dated 24 August 2022.
Ukrainian startup Metal Time has developed a working mechanical design kit model of the MRIYA AN-225 cargo plane, and profits from the sale will be donated to Antonov for rebuilding the Mriya aircraft; rehousing employees; as well as educating and training new 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, Awery’s CEO.
“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.”
