Russian Helicopters to display Mi-171A2, Ansat, Ka-226T at air show in Iran
The Russian Helicopters Corporation (a subsidiary of Rostec) will exhibit several of its latest light and medium multirole commercial helicopters at the 8th international air show in the Iranian city of Kish on Nov. 16-19, according to the corporation’s press office.
The visitors will see models of the Mil Mi-172A2 (NATO reporting name: Hip), Ansat and Kamov Ka-226T (Hoodlum) helicopters in the passenger variant. The commercial multipurpose machines are on display to promote demand for the company’s aircraft on the regional market, Russia Beyond the Headlines reports.
"Russian-built helicopters have proven to be indispensable on a wide range of missions owing to their reliability on hot-and-high operations and ability to land in unprepared landing zones [LZ]. I hope that Iran, an operator of Russian-made helicopters, will expand its helicopter fleet and ramp up the acquisition," says Russian Helicopters Deputy Director General for Business Development Alexander Shcherbinin.
