Czech producer Aircraft Industries, which is owned by Russian Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company, is supposed to deliver four L-410UVP-E20 aircraft to Ural Works of Civil Aviation (UWCA). Russia’s United Engine Corporation, which owns a stake in UWCA, confirmed this information to Russian Aviation Insider.

A source in the industry told Russian Aviation Insider that UWCA has already transferred part of the payment for the aircraft to the Czech OEM according to the contract. The first two 19-seat turboprops are expected to arrive at UWCA in July, and the other two are expected in the autumn. The aircraft will be ferried to Yekaterinburg.

Late in April, UWCA announced it received a preliminary order for 30 L-410s, which the Ural plant is getting ready to assemble by license from the Aircraft Industries. These aircraft should be delivered by 2020.

UWCA’s management was not available for a comment.
