Russian Helicopters Signs Deal for 20 Ansat Helicopters in China

Russian Helicopters, part of Rostec State Corporation, signed a contract earlier this month to supply 20 Ansat helicopters to the Emergency Medicine Association of the People's Republic of China.

The Ansat (a replacement for the Mi-2) is a light, multi-purpose helicopter manufactured by Kazan Helicopters and powered by two Canadian Pratt & Whitney PW207K engines.

The helicopter is equipped with a special ventilation system and a tele-ECG machine that is capable of reading a cardiogram in real time.

 The Ansat is certified for operations within the temperature range from -45 to +50°C and it has successfully completed high altitudes tests, proving its capability to operate in mountainous areas at altitudes of up to 3,500 meters.

The helicopter can be quickly transformed into either a cargo or passenger helicopter with capacity for up to 7 people.

“This contract marks the full-fledged introduction of Ansat to the international market,” said Andrey Boginskiy, CEO of Russian Helicopters. “The helicopter has demonstrated an excellent performance within the framework of air medical service development program in Russia, and now it is going to save lives in China. Production capacity of Kazan Helicopters will ensure supplies both to Russian and foreign customers. By the end of the year we plan to validate Ansat type certificate in China and deliver all helicopters under this contract in 2019-2020.”

In Russia, Ansat helicopters in a medical configuration have been employed on rescue operations in Volgograd, Kurgan, Kirov, Kostroma, Pskov, Nizhny Novgorod regions and Tatarstan. Starting from 2017, 11 medical Ansat helicopters have been delivered to regional emergency services and 7 more helicopters will be shipped by the end of the year within the framework of the federal project “Timely provision of emergency medical services in hard-to-reach areas of the Russian Federation”.

Furthermore, in September 2018 JSC “Russian Helicopters”, the Russian national EMS aviation service and “Avia Capital Services” signed a contract for the delivery of 104 Ansat helicopters in a medical configuration.
