Russian Helicopters (part of State Corporation Rostec) will highlight a line-up of new commercial helicopters including the light Ka-226T and Ansat and medium Mi-171A2 and Mi-38 at HeliRussia 2015, one of the key events in the industry calendar, which runs from 21-23 May at Moscow Crocus Expo centre. The company will take part in round tables and conferences, and will hold a number of meetings and presentations for partners.
“Russian Helicopters has always been an active participant in HeliRussia, where it showcases advanced technology,” Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev said. “By creating new helicopters we can expand our model range and compete more successfully on the global market. Today’s helicopter manufacturers are also competing to provide the best aftersales service and this is a key area of focus for us that we plan to highlight at HeliRussia.”
Sector experts expect particular interest in the light multirole Ka-226T and Ansat. The Ka-226T boasts high-precision hovering ability, outstanding manoeuvrability and handling, as well as a high power rating, maximum safety and ease of use.
The light multirole Ansat will be presented with a medical module. The helicopter has high potential for use in medical aviation, as it can be used to transport injured and sick people to hospitals, or to provide on-board medical attention or resuscitate patients. The medical module includes an artificial breathing apparatus, monitoring and defibrillation system, an aspirator, vacuum mattress and many other features that will help save lives.
Deliveries of the Ansat are scheduled to start in the nearest time. Experts say that the Ansat has a number of competitive edges over other helicopters in its class. The helicopter has a spacious cabin, is reliable and easy to fly, and can be stored outdoors.
