The company will bring a strong line-up to the exhibition, including the Ka-226/Ka-226T. Modular design gives this model the flexibility to carry out missions ranging from border patrol and transportation to supporting airborne troops and search-and-rescue.
The light multirole Ansat is another advanced model that has attracted commercial interest for use in special police missions.
Russian Helicopters will also showcase the Mi-171A2, the latest addition to the Mi-8/17 family, which has played a key role in national security in Russia and other CIS countries for many years, flying fire-fighting, medical, emergency and many other missions.
