The Russian Helicopters plans to sign a contract with India on supply of Mi-171A2, the company’s Director General Andrei Boginsky said.

"At the show, we plan signing a contract with an Indian company on supply of Mil Mi-171A2, and certifying it on this market," Andrei was quoted as saying by Tass during the on-going Dubai Airshow on Sunday.

The holding company has begun the process of certifying Ansat in China, he continued. "Our plans are to begin certifying in Pakistan, Mexico, Colombia, Brazil," he said.

"We expect that in the end of this year - early next year our joint venture producing Ka-226 will enter a contract with India's Defense Ministry," he said.

Russia and India agreed on the Ka-226T helicopter joint production in 2015. In October 2016, the parties signed an agreement to set up a joint venture.

Earlier reports said the Ka-226 helicopters would be manufactured by Russia’s Ulan-Ude and Kumertau Aircraft Plants. Andrei Boginsky also said that Russian Helicopters may sign before the year-end a contract with India for supply of Kamov Ka-226 helicopters.

"We expect that in the end of this year - early next year our joint venture producing Ka-226 will enter a contract with India's Defense Ministry," he said.

The Ka-226T helicopter is a light multipurpose rotorcraft with a takeoff weight of 3.4 tons. The helicopter is designed to transport up to 1.5 tons of cargo or seven passengers at a distance of 600 kilometers (373 miles).
