During the Russia-India conference on after-sales service for Russian-made helicopters, Russian Helicopters (part of State Corporation Rostec) proposed developing the after-sales service provision for Russian-made helicopters operated in India.

A long-term contract between India’s Army, Navy and Home Affairs Ministry and Russian Helicopters is one of the steps envisaged as part of these improvements to the after-sales system. This contract will have a term from 3 to 5 years and will boost cooperation on after-sales service for helicopters, while also making it possible to establish a system for further cooperation under contracts.

Another key step in further developing after-sales service systems for Russian-made helicopters operated in India involves delivering the latest ground-based service and equipment testing facilities, improving these operations and automating a number of technical maintenance and helicopter repair procedures.

Russian Helicopters plans to build new infrastructure and upgrade existing facilities for the maintenance and repair of Russian-made helicopters. The first step will focus on modernizing helicopters already supplied, in particular their gears, fuel system, radio-navigation equipment and communications systems, fitting them with new engines and auxiliary power units, and also modernizing helicopters to boost protection against terrorist threats.

Russian Helicopters, (part of State Corporation Rostec), is one of the global leaders in helicopter production and the only helicopter design and production powerhouse in Russia. Russian Helicopters was founded in 2007 and is headquartered in Moscow.
