Following last week’s contract signing with Bangladesh to supply five Mi-171Sh military transport helicopters, Rosoboronexport is negotiating to sell civilian Ansats and Mi-171s choppers.

“We negotiated with the Bangladesh delegation visiting HeliRussia-2017 late in May this year. Russian aviation equipment piqued the interest of not only representatives of the country’s Armed Forces but other agencies as well. Besides, Rosoboronexport conducts consultations for supply of civilian Ansats and Mi-171s to Bangladesh,” said Director General Alexander Mikheev of Rosoboronexport.

Rosoboronexport is expected to invite new customers at the Paris Air show 2017.

“Bangladesh is focused on upgrading the national aircraft pool. We are happy that the state picked Russian high-quality equipment. We signed a contract to supply five Mi-171Sh helicopters to our partners. This is to be implemented in 2018,” added Alexander Mikheev.

Rosoboronexport has delivered Mi-17s, Yak-130 combat-trainers, and armored equipment to the Bangladeshi Ministry of Defense between 2013 and 2016.

During 2006-2016, Russia has exported 800 helicopters of the Mi-17 series and its variants such as the Mi-171, making it the single largest exported helicopter in the world, a Rosoboronexport press release said.
