An-74-300 was created purposely to meet requirements, first of all the revenue
service operators' needs in fuel efficiency, safety and comfort. The exceptional
design potential enabled engineers to create a number of modifications, including:
Intensive therapy station.
Extreme operating flexibility is one of the key features of the An-74-300.
With the wide cargo cabin and set of additional equipment coming from the
200 series derivative, this aircraft can be effectively used for cargo and
convertible cargo transportation, as well as for a range of special missions.
At the same time fuel efficiency and high performance ensures its natural
expansion into civil utilizations including passenger regional and short haul
revenue service and executive transportation.
Passenger transport / up to 52 passengers
With the passenger cabin configuration with four-abreast seats (chairs), the
passenger An-74-300 can carry up to 52 passengers on regional and short-haul
Large inside section allowed creating spacious comfort cabin found only in
larger long-haul wide body jets.
Elegant cabin interior of every new An-74-300 business jet is developed taking
into account customers' individual requirements. Each interior combines aesthetic
view and functionality and provides for maximum comfort for work and relaxation
during the flight.
Spacious inner area enables dividing the cabin of the An-74-300 aircraft into
several independent rooms, which can accommodate the room for VIP-passenger,
meeting room or room for accompanying persons. Natural high-quality finishing
materials used in design emphasize the style and individuality of the VIP-cabin.
The transport variant of the An-74-300 is designed to meet the modern freight
transport requirements. The aircraft is equipped with the same set of loading
and unloading equipment as installed at 200 series derivative.

Design and equipment
The most of the An-74-300 systems including deicing, fire-protection and
hydraulic systems, landing gear, emergency equipment replicate the base variant,
as well as airframe. The most distinctive feature of this version is the new
type of engine installation on pylons under wing improving aerodynamic perfection
of the aircraft. Besides, from the early design stages an effort to incorporate
functionality and cabin comfort in the passenger layouts was taken.
The powerplant has undergone some changes and now consists of two D-36 Series
4A turbofan engines with a modified thrust reverser system.
The reinforced landing gear inherited from 200 series version allowed the
An-74-300 to retain the unprepared runways performance with minimum pavement
density 8 kg/cm2.
The powerplant of the An-74-300 consists of two turbofan engines D-36 series
4A mounted on the pylons under wing. The D-36 series 4A is an upgraded version
of the proven D-36 engine family powering all of the An-74 derivatives. The
4A series features a new thrust reverser system.
The main advantages of the engine, such as low specific fuel burn, high power,
reliability and durability have been proven in the hardest operational conditions.
The auxiliary power unit TA-12 makes the aircraft completely independent from
