Russian Helicopters, the Russian helicopter engineering holding company, a part of United Industrial Corporation Oboronprom, and the Russian Center for Scientific and Technical Services Dinamika (CSTS Dinamika) have signed a cooperation agreement in the marketing, development, production, and delivery of technical training means for flight and engineering personnel operating Russian-made rotorcraft.
Under this agreement the parties are planning to jointly create, certify, and run technical training units (TTU) for flight and engineering personnel operating helicopter complexes of various roles.
The agreement also envisions joint marketing and the promotion of modern TTU for rotorcraft manufactured by Russian Helicopters on local and international markets within integrated delivery contracts.
“Creating and developing a global system for the training of flight personnel are among the top priorities for the Russian Helicopters holding,” Russian Helicopters CEO Dmitry Petrov stated. “Signing a cooperation agreement with CSTS Dinamika is an important stage for the holding in its strategic transition from selling just the helicopter as a separate product to selling its entire lifecycle, including servicing and modern means for the preparation and training of flight personnel. We have gained a new reliable partner that together with R.E.T. Kronshtadt, Tranzas, and others will enhance our capabilities in promoting helicopters on the global market. We hope that a partnership with a developer and producer of simulators will allow Russian Helicopters to provide operators the best training for pilots flying Russian-made rotorcraft on the global market.
“Our simulators allow training in conditions that are as close as possible to real life, which is in line with modern pilot crew training standards,” CSTS Dinamika Director General Alexander Litvinenko said. “The agreement will help develop the flight crew training services market, raise flight safety, and save the resource of helicopters operated by Russian and foreign companies”.
The agreement with Russian Helicopters continues the rich and longtime experience of CSTS Dinamika with companies within the Russian Helicopters holding company.
Dinamika manufactures modern simulators for a wide variety of Mil helicopters. In cooperation with Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant, the company has developed and manufactured (including mass production) simulators of various difficulty for Mi-8MTV, Mi-8(MTV-5), Mi-17-1V, Mi-171, Mi-24P, Mi-24PN, Mi-35M, and Mi-28N that are operated by state aviation services and in civil aviation.
In 2010 CSTS Dinamika received its first order to develop a technical training complex for flight personnel from Kamov (also a part of the Russian Helicopters), the developer of the military Ka-52. Besides the simulator, the complex will include an automatic system for the theoretical preparation of flight personnel.
CSTS Dinamika, CJSC –a Russian company that develops, manufactures and performs aftersale service of aviation simulators and other technical means for the training of flight and engineering personnel. Among other business directions of the company is the manufacture of engineering simulators to support research and development works on the creation of prospective aviation technology; mass production of basic training units; development of multifunctional tactical training complexes.
