Sept. 16, 2020: The Russian Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) has granted Russian Helicopters the approval to make a major change to the Ansat helicopter type certificate.
The event took place during the International Helicopter Industry Exhibition HeliRussia 2020. The document will enable operators to use full electronic documentation with the helicopters.
The approval for “conversion of operating documentation into an interactive electronic form” for the Ansat helicopter built by Kazan Helicopters, was granted by Rosaviatsiya on September 11.
“This is a unique project in Russia. We can now replace the set of printed documentation with an interactive one,” said the Director General of Russian Helicopters, Andrey Boginsky. “This step will significantly speed up updating the Ansat design, which is especially important in light of our plans to upgrade the helicopter to the new generation. Electronic documentation will also significantly simplify the maintenance and repair of Ansat helicopters.”
The Federal Air Transport Agency has also issued the company a type certificate for the Mi-171A2 helicopter, issued by the South Korean Office of Civil Aviation (KOCA). The type certificate was the successful result of the working agreement between Rosaviatsiya and KOCA concerning certification and airworthiness, signed in September last year.
