Ansat is a light
twin-engine utility helicopter produced at Kazan
Helicopters. The design of the helicopter allows for its prompt
transformation into either cargo, or passenger version with the
capability to transport up to seven people. The helicopter is
certified for operations with a medical module and can be used
within a temperature range of -45 to +50°C. Ansat has successfully
completed high-altitude tests, proving its capability to operate
in mountainous areas at altitudes of up to 3,500 meters.
The Mi-38 utility helicopter features TV7-117V engines, an
integrated flight control and navigation suite, explosion-proof
self-healing fuel system. It also has additional landing gear
struts for landing on loose soil and snow. Mi-38 helicopter
applications include cargo and passenger transportation, search
and rescue operations in various climates and VIP transport.
