“Russian Helicopters is striving to reinforce business relations with commercial and state customers in Thailand. The first deliveries of our Ka-32A11BC helicopters to the Kingdom are scheduled by the end of the year, and potential operators have also shown keen interest in the Ansat and Mi-8/17 rotorcraft in various modifications, which is why we believe that showcasing our helicopters here is perfectly timed,” said Andrey Boginskiy, Director General of Russian Helicopters Holding Company.

After participating in the Zhuhai Airshow in China from 6-11 November, Russian Helicopters visited Hanoi on 16 November and Phnom Penh on 20 November. The next leg of the tour will take the company to Kuala Lumpur where they will showcase the two helicopters at a special event at the Sepang F1 International Circuit near Kuala Lumpur on 3 December 2018.

Anatoly Serdyukov, Industrial Director of the Aviation Cluster of Rostec, said, “Events such as this demonstration tour are aimed at not only at showcasing the benefits of our helicopters, but also at strengthening our relations with key partners in the region.”

Thailand has been a valuable market of Russian Helicopters for many years, with a number of Mi-17V-5 medium utility helicopters already operating in the Kingdom.

The company also has plans to establish a MRO centre in Thailand. The centre will perform all types of scheduled maintenance and repair works, troubleshooting and replacement of components.
