 Medical and VIP transport variants of the Ansat light, multi-purpose chopper will take part in the airshow, having being painted in a livery color scheme, representing both the Russian and French flags. The fuselage of each helicopter comes with a curly gymnastic ribbon, symbolizing the beauty and harmony of the flight of rotorcrafts.

Developed by Kazan Helicopter Plant, the Ansat can be used for cargo delivery and environmental monitoring. It can fly in mountainous terrain at altitudes up to 3,500 meters. The helicopter can be operated in a temperature range between -45 and +50 degrees of Celsius.
