The An-2 is an durable, light, single-engine aircraft designed by Antonov. It is capable of carrying 12 passengers but in other roles it is also used for parachute drops and agricultural work. Its extraordinary slow-flight and STOL capabilities make it supremely suited for short airfields, and some specialized variants have also been built for cold weather and other extreme environments.
