Russian Helicopters today signed a contract for delivery of 20 Ansat helicopters to the Chinese Association for Disaster & Emergency Rescue Medicine (CADERM) during Airshow China 2018.
The helicopters are to provide primary medical care and emergency medical evacuation of patients and can be used in difficult terrain and in remote areas with hindered transport accessibility. In addition, the medical module of Ansat provides for resuscitation, intensive care and monitoring of the main bodily functions of an injured person during transportation to a hospital.
"The fact that we sign the contract today means that Ansat helicopters fully come onto the international market. These helicopters have proved to be very effective during implementation of the air ambulance development program in Russia, and now they will also save lives in China. The production capacity of Kazan Helicopter Plant will provide for supply to both Russian and foreign customers. We plan to validate the Ansat certificate in China before the end of 2018 and to supply all machines under this contract in 2019 and 2020," stated Russian Helicopters CEO Andrey Boginsky.
In Russia, Ansat medical helicopters are successfully used for providing air medical services. These helicopters operate as part of the federal project on ensuring timely provision of emergency medical care to citizens living in remote areas of the Russian Federation. A total of 11 Ansat medical helicopters have been handed over to regional emergency services, and seven helicopters will be delivered before the end of the year.
Ansat is a light multipurpose twin-engine helicopter. In May 2015, the modification of the helicopter with a medical module was certified.
Ansat is certified for use in temperatures ranging between -45°С and +50°С. High-altitude tests of Ansat have been successfully completed, which confirmed the possibility of its use in mountainous terrain at altitudes up to 3,500 meters.
The Technodinamika holding company, a member of the Rostec State Corporation, is developing the first pilot units for Ansat and Ka-226 light civilian helicopters to replace Ukrainian components. NP1
