The demonstration tour, which comprised of two civilian helicopters - an Ansat and a Mi-171A2, gave potential buyers, VIPs and select media, an opportunity to learn more about the aircraft, see them perform demo flights, and hear about Russian Helicopters' comprehensive after-sales service program.

The helicopters have covered almost 5,000 kilometers on the tour which visited China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and concluded in Malaysia on Monday. In total, more than a thousand guests from state and commercial helicopter operators attended the introductory events hosted in each country.

Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov, said, “The applications received over the month of our demo tour to supply of over 70 Russian helicopters worth more than half a billion dollars to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region over the next three years are vivid evidence of the competitiveness and relevance of Russian civilian helicopter technology abroad, a logical result of comprehensive government measures to support Russian civil export to world markets.”

 “These are both hard and soft contracts. For example, in China, a contract was signed for 20 Ansat helicopters for the Association of Disaster Medicine of China. The remaining 50 helicopters are planned for delivery to Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Malaysia,” explained Russian Helicopters CEO Andrey Boginsky.

According to Boginsky, demand for civilian helicopters in Southeast Asian countries may amount to 420 helicopters in the next ten years. “We are counting on a substantial share of this market, and the results of the demo tour suggest that we have every reason for this,” he said.

Anatoly Serdyukov, Rostec's Aviation Cluster Industrial Director, said, “Southeast Asia is one of the world’s fastest growing industrial and financial regions. The demand for civilian helicopters in the countries of the region could amount to 420 helicopters over the next decade. It is strategically important for Rostec to strengthen its positions here in the helicopter industry. The agreements and arrangements reached in the framework of the demo-tour are the best confirmation of the potential of our machines.”
