During the first day of the VI International Industrial Exhibition “Innoprom-2015” in Yekaterinburg, a new multipurpose helicopter “ANSAT” was demonstrated to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on the stand of holding “Helicopters of Russia” of State Corporation Rostec.
The Ansat helicopter has a number of competitive advantages compared to counterparts in its class. It is reliable and easy to operate, can be used in a wide range of climatic conditions, and does not need to be stored in a hangar. The Ansat has a metal fuselage, composite non load-bearing parts, and fibreglass blades. The hinge-less main rotor makes it easier to handle and significantly reduces its operating costs. In May 2015 the Ansat was certified by the IAC AR for passenger traffic, since which time the company has received orders from two airlines for these helicopters.
