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. 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 after sales service and this is a key area of focus for us that we plan to highlight at HeliRussia,” Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev said.
Sector experts expect particular interest in the light multirole Ka-226T and Ansat. The Ka-226T boasts high-precision hovering ability, outstanding maneuverability 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 which 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 soon. The helicopter has a spacious cabin, is reliable and easy to fly, and can be stored outdoors.
Medium helicopters will be represented by the Mi-171A2 and Mi-38. The Mi-171A2 is one of the most eagerly anticipated new Russian helicopters, and is the latest addition to the Mi-8/17 series, with significant changes to the aircraft's construction and on-board equipment that improve flight capabilities and reduce operating costs. Russian Helicopters is currently testing the new helicopter using the Mi-171LL (“flying laboratory”) and first prototype of the Mi-171A2.
Sector experts say that the Mi-38's cargo-carrying ability and cabin volume, combined with its high speed and comfort, are likely to create high levels of demand from regional operators, primarily for passenger and cargo flights. Low noise levels, a spacious passenger cabin and next-generation flight safety standards are all qualities that suit the helicopter to a wide range of uses. Flight tests are currently ongoing with a number of prototypes. Kazan Helicopters, a Russian Helicopters' company, has already started assembling the first serial-production Mi-38.
At HeliRussia 2015, Russian Helicopters will also present its after sales service program to military helicopter operators. The program has been taken to a new level with the granting of a license from the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation to provide after sales service for military aircraft sold abroad.
