The Russian Helicopters holding company, a member of the Rostec State Corporation, have successfully demonstrated the Ansat’s capability to operate at extremely high ambient air temperatures. The vehicle is being tested in Pakistan. Besides, Russian Helicopters held a presentation of Ansat for potential Pakistani customers.
The guests learned about the competitive advantages of Ansat and the preliminary tests results being carried out since late October. The helicopter’s capability to operate at a temperature of up to +50 degrees Celsius has already been ascertained.
“We received several letters from our potential customers regarding their intention to buy the vehicles. Besides, there is an agreement that Ansat will be inspected by technical experts from a series of Pakistani businesses and governmental agencies. This helicopter also arouses interest in the countries of Asia and the Middle East, therefore, extension of the temperature range would allow to increase the number of potential buyers”, stated Deputy General Director for Marketing and Development of the Russian Helicopters holding company Alexander Scherbinin.
Ansat is a light-weight twin-engine multi-purpose helicopter commercially built by Kazan Helicopters. In May 2015, a helicopter modification with an ambulance module has been certified as per all applicable international standards. According to the certificate, the helicopter’s design allows to swiftly transform it into a cargo or passenger modification capable of carrying up to 7 people.
