Russian Helicopters, November 05, 2015 - Moscow - Russian Helicopters, part of State Corporation Rostec, will demonstrate the latest medium multirole Mi-171A2 alongside the light multirole Ansat in VIP configuration and the firefighting version of the Ka-32A11BC at Dubai Airshow on 8-12 November.

The Mi-171A2 combines the finest qualities of the Mi-8/17 series with the latest aircraft manufacturing technologies. Key upgrades include a new, more powerful and more economical Klimov VK-2500PS-03 engine; a main rotor with composite blades and improved aerodynamics; an X-shaped tail rotor; completely new integrated avionics deployed using an open-architecture KBO-17 glass cockpit; as well as an improved flight management system with manual, fully automatic and semi-automatic modes. The Mi-171A2 is effective when operating in mountainous areas, as well as regions of high humidity and temperatures. Thanks to its on-board piloting and navigation systems, the helicopter can operate equally well during the day or at night, in any weather conditions, and also over water.

The light Ansat is reliable and easy to use. It is a single-rotor helicopter with a tail rotor, two turboshaft engines and ski landing gear. The Ansat can operate in various climatic zones and be stored outdoors. Thanks to its easily reconfigurable equipment, the multirole Ansat can be rapidly adapted to fly a wide range of missions – from cargo and passenger transport to medevac and search and rescue.

At the Dubai Airshow, Russian Helicopters will brief state officials on the Ka-32A11BC’s successful experience as a firefighting helicopter. The multirole Ka-32A11BC is a leader in its class, and experts say that the Ka-32A11BC is one of the best rescue and fire-fighting helicopters around. Extinguishing fires in high-rise buildings is impossible without specialised equipment, and the most effective way to tackle blazes in skyscrapers is by using fire-fighting helicopters. In 2012 a Ka-32A11BC successfully fought a fire on the 66th and 67th floors of the Moscow-City skyscraper, one of the highest buildings in Russia and Europe. The helicopter operated at an altitude of 270 metres and successfully extinguished the blaze.

At the Dubai Airshow there will also be presentations of the Ka-52 Alligator, the Mi-35M and the Mi-28NE Night Hunter for official delegations from Africa and the Middle East. Russian Helicopters will hold talks with security officials from across the region to brief them on opportunities for deploying the Mi-171Sh, Mi17V-5 and Mi-35M to combat armed militant groups.

Mi-8/17 helicopters, the Mi-24/35 series and the Mi-28NE Night Hunter have repeatedly proved their worth in military operations around the world. Today, Mi-8 and Mi-24 helicopters from Russia’s Air Force are taking part in military operations against the so-called Islamic State in Syria, while Mi-171Sh, Mi-28NE and Mi-35M helicopters are fighting IS as part of the Iraqi Air Force.

Russian Helicopters, (part of State Corporation Rostec), is one of the global leaders in helicopter production and the only helicopter design and production powerhouse in Russia. Russian Helicopters was founded in 2007 and is headquartered in Moscow. The company comprises five helicopter production facilities, two design bureaus, a spare parts production and repair facility, as well as an aftersale service branch responsible for maintenance and repair in Russia and all over the world. Its helicopters are popular among Russian ministries and state authorities (Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Internal Affairs, Emergency Control Ministry), operators (Gazpromavia, UTair), major Russian corporations. In 2014 its IFRS revenues increased 22,8% to RUB 169,8 billion. Deliveries reached 271 helicopters.
