Russian Helicopters showcases rotorcraft developments
Optional configurations/missions also include search and rescue and medevac, and installation of a windlass, a searchlight, an external sling and medical equipment would aid with this.
‘This helicopter is going to be transferred to UTair Airlines air company, which already has a positive experience in operating the Mi-171A2, as commercial flights of the new model began past February,’ Andrei Boginsky, director general of Russian Helicopters, said.
‘In addition, the first Mi-171A2 has already been supplied abroad. Customers appreciated the advanced capabilities of this helicopter; it performs equally well in passenger and cargo transportation.’
The first serial Mi-38 helicopter was also shown, following previous shows during which pre-production prototypes were on display, while the company also showcased its Ansat helicopter in Aurus branding for the first time, featuring a cabin designed by Russian Helicopters and the Central Scientific Research Automobile and Automotive Engines Institute, or NAMI.
‘We have managed to implement this project in the shortest possible time in close cooperation with our colleagues from NAMI. We began to develop the interior in April 2019 immediately after the design was approved,’ Boginsky added.
‘I would like to note that this is not just a new cabin, but a completely new approach to corporate transportation services: ten changes to the helicopter's design were made to make it more ergonomic.
‘I am convinced that Ansat will complement the Aurus range perfectly, and soon, after we finish tests, we will be ready to receive orders for the new machine.’
