There are round 50 Russian-made Mi-17 type helicopters currently in operation in Mexico, said Viktor Kladov, Director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy of Rostec. Im confident that the maintenance center will both strengthen and expand our cooperation in the field of aviation, as well as make the light Ansat helicopter more attractive to potential customers in both Mexico and Latin America in general.

The twin-engine Ansat helicopter has one of the largest cabins within its class and is actively used by air medical services. It can also be used for normal passenger and VIP transport, cargo delivery and environmental monitoring. Ansat has been successfully tested for high-altitude operations, confirming that it can be used in mountainous areas with altitudes up to 3,500 meters.
