Russian Helicopters, part of State Corporation Rostec, continues to supply helicopters across the Asia-Pacific region, including India. Over the past three years 189 commercial and military aircraft were delivered, which includes Rosoboronexport contracts. In 2014 deliveries increased by 11% on 2012, and today more than 1,400 Russian-built helicopters operate in the region.
“Over the last year alone the fleet of Russian helicopters in the Asia-Pacific region has grown by 40 aircraft, from 1,366 in 2013 to 1,406 in 2014”, said Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev. “We plan to further strengthen our position in the region not just by supplying aircraft, but also by expanding our after-sales service programme for the Russian-built helicopters in the region.”
