Russian Helicopters has completed validation of the type certificate for Ansat light multipurpose helicopter in the People’s Republic of China. The company is now ready to commence Ansat light helicopter deliveries to China under a previously contract inked in 2018 for 20 helicopters to the Chinese Emergency and Disaster Relief Association.
“Validation of Ansat certificate in China was a result of cooperation of specialists from Rostec, Russian Helicopters, the Kazan Helicopters, our selectors, and the aviation authorities of Russia and China. We are ready to commence the supplies this year. I am convinced that Ansat operation in China will promote the sales of the helicopter in other countries in the region, which also express interest in this modern and reliable rotorcraft,” said Director General of Russian Helicopters holding company Andrey Boginsky.
The twin-engine Ansat helicopter was designed by Kazan Helicopters for use as a passenger and VIP transport, cargo delivery, environmental monitoring, and an air medical helicopter.
