A government delegation from Cuba visited a Russian Helicopters plant


Rostec, April 22, 2015 - Kazan Helicopters, a subsidiary of the holding company Russian Helicopters, hosted a meeting of the Intergovernmental Russian-Cuban Commission on Economic and Scientific-Technical Cooperation.

Members of the commission visited the production facility and inspected new helicopters developed and manufactured at this plant. The visitors expressed particular interest in the multipurpose Mi-17V-5 and Ansat helicopters, including the VIP, medical, passenger editions.

Ildar Khalikov, Prime Minister of the Republic of Tatarstan, and Ravil Zaripov, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Industry and Trade of the Republic of Tatarstan, accompanied the Cuban representatives in the factory.

Economic and technical cooperation between the two countries has been developing for many years. In December 2014, a Russian delegation visited Havana, which hosted the previous meeting of the Intergovernmental Russian-Cuban Commission, led by Dmitry Rogozin, Deputy Prime Minister of Russia, and Ricardo Cabrisas Ruiz, Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Cuba.

Vadim Ligai, Deputy CEO of Russian Helicopters and CEO of Kazan Helicopters, stressed that the company has maintained strategic cooperation with Cuba since the founding of the republic. "Cuba is one of our traditional markets. We greatly appreciate the long-standing relationship with our Cuban partners,” said Vadim Ligai.

Over the years, the plant has supplied Cuba with various types of helicopters, including the Mi-4, Mi-14, and Mi-8/17. The plant has delivered 250 helicopters to all of Latin America, of which approximately 60 went to Cuba. At the moment, a contract is being fulfilled to supply to Cuba two helicopters produced by Kazan Helicopters.
