Russian Helicopters will showcase a Mi-171A2, an Ansat and a Ka-226T in the passenger mode at the 8th International Airshow, November 16-19 on Kish Island, Iran.

Russian Helicopters will show a wide range of multirole civilian rotorcraft with goals to increase demand in Iran and from other customers in the Middle East.

"Russian helicopters have proved to be irreplaceable in carrying out a wide range of tasks, trouble-free, in high altitudes, in a wide temperature range, and through ability to successfully land on unprepared sites. I hope that Iran, which already operates Russian-made helicopters, will expand its fleet and increase supplies, "- said Russian Helicopters Deputy CEO for Business Development Alexander Shcherbinin.

The Ansat, a light twin-engine multirole helicopter designed for 7-9 people, has just received its first overseas customer. In December 2014, an Ansat with hydromechanical control system (GMSU) was approved for operation, which allowed for it to carry passengers. In May 2015, a medevac Ansat was approved for flying as well. In December 2015, a VIP version of the helicopter was certified. In June 2016, Ansat’s take-off weight was raised to 3,600 kg.

The medium multirole Mi-171A2 will also be shown at the Russian Helicopters’ booth. It is designed by utilizing best modern aviation technology and meets all core safety requirements and environmental standards. Its modern avionics allows to operate it around the clock and in adverse weather conditions, and it can fly over water.

The Ka-226T is another new model that Russian Helicopters are taking to Iran. The Ka-226T is a light helicopter based on the coaxial rotor system and is ideal for the Middle East. The helicopter can fly in hot desert terrain with frequent sandstorms, as through gusty winds. It is designed for complex tasks in dense urban areas as well. Ka-226T’s advantages are the ability to land on small pads, high maneuverability and rapid rate of climb.
