March 29, 2016 By Russian Helicopters
Russian Helicopters will take part in FIDAE 2016 International Air & Space Fair, from 29 March to 3 April, in Santiago, Chile. The holding company will showcase its newest Ma-171A2 helicopter for the first time; together with Rosoboronprom it will also demonstrate Mi-27NE and Mi-35M military helicopters.
Presently, more than 200 Russian and Soviet made commercial and military helicopters are operated in Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Peru and in a number of other South American countries. Chile – a country with special mountainous terrain – needs firefighting and cargo-lifting helicopters.
The Latin American market has been one of the priorities for Russian Helicopters. The company’s products, including Ka-32A11BC helicopters, Mi-171 in various modifications and Mi-16V-5 with Russian made engines are in full compliance with customers’ requirements. In addition, Russian Helicopters are ready to provide after-sale service and look into establishing new service centers in the region.
The company’s pavilion will feature Mi-171A2 and Ka-32A11BC helicopters in search and rescue modifications. As for the military helicopters, Russian Helicopters and Rosoboronexport will introduce visitors to the multirole military transport Mi-35M and combat Mi-28NE “Night Hunter” helicopters.
Also, during FIDAE 2016, the company will have a number of negotiations with potential customers and operators. A presentation of the newest light Ansat helicopter is planned.
