Are Antono'v products the Pintos and Yugo's of the sky? I'm asking, sincerely because I've never been in one but heard pilots say that. Is?

their any truth to it? Personally, I like the An-70 if I were to have a private plane. It's extremely roomy, not at all slow and reportedly very efficient. Any firsthand knowledge of this craft? Thanks! .


Mostly I think of the company as producer of very large aircraft. Pintos and Yugo's are small cars so I don't see the analogy. Maybe their smaller aircraft might be like the Chevy Suburbans of the sky. Their biggest one's might be like Kenworth's of the sky.
