Russian Helicopters, part of the Rostec State Corporation, is in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to demonstrate its Ansat and Mi-171A2 aircraft.

 The two civilian helicopters will be presented to VIPs, potential customers and select media on 3 December, in the last leg of a demonstration tour across Southeast Asia.

Following the demo tour, Andrey Boginsky, CEO of Russian Helicopters, will conduct a press conference, while Russian Helicopters' specialists will give detailed presentations of the key advantages and characteristics of the Ansat and Mi-171A2 helicopters.

Russian Helicopters started the Southeast Asia demonstration tour on 12 November in China, and since then the aircraft have covered over 4.5 thousand kilometers. From China, the helicopters visited Hanoi, Vietnam on 16 November, then flew to Phnom Penh, Cambodia on 20 November, and were at the U-Tapao airfield near Pattaya, Thailand on 26 November.

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 Ansat is certified for operations in temperatures ranging from -45 to +50°C, and has completed high altitudes tests, proving its capability to operate in mountainous areas at altitudes of up to 3,500 meters. The helicopter can be used for cargo and passenger transportation, search and rescue operations, fire-fighting, and medical and evacuation. It has a capacity for up to 7 people.

The Mi-171A2 is the latest modification of Mi-8/17 helicopters. It is equipped with VK-2500PS-03 engines (the civil version of engines installed on Mi-28 combat helicopters) with a digital control system, as well as a more efficient X-shaped tail rotor and a new main rotor with composite blades and an enhanced aerodynamic profile. The cruise and maximum speeds of the Mi-171A2 are 10% higher than those of the mass-produced Mi-8/17 helicopters, and the payload is 25% greater. The Mi-171A2 is equipped with the KBO-17 modern digital on-board equipment suite designed according to the “glass cockpit” principle, which has meant that the number of crew members can be reduced to two. The helicopter can be used as a passenger aircraft and is available in transport, passenger, and VIP versions.
