A mock-up model of Russian Helicopter’s light shipborne Ka-226T helicopter, is being showcased for the first time at Aero India. The naval version of Ka-226T features a blade folding main rotor system, which allows the light helicopter to be deployed on ships and low-displacement vessels.

“No doubt, India is our strategic partner and at this show we are planning to continue discussions on one of our key projects: the localization of production of Ka-226T in this country. Moreover, in view of the voiced interest in procuring light utility ship-based rotorcraft we shall put an increased focus on presenting the capabilities of naval version of Ka-226T. The helicopters in such configuration are being delivered to the Russian special-task aviation and already have a favourable track record. This rotorcraft may become a logical continuation of the current cooperation we are building within the scope of the “Make in India” program”, says Andrey Boginskiy, Director General of Russian Helicopters Holding Company.

The ship-based Ka-226T helicopter can undertake missions such as search and rescue and transport missions in day and night in standard and adverse weather conditions.

Russian Helicopter’s is also displaying mock-ups of Ansat and Mi-171A2 rotorcraft, which are being proposed for sale to commercial customers in India.

India is to become one of the first foreign operators of Mi-171A2. Currently the Holding Company is finalizing joint TC validation activities with the Indian authorities.

The first Mi-171A2 shall be handed over to the Indian customer in 2019.

Aero India visitors can also see the mock-up model of a utility Mi-38 helicopter.
