Russian Helicopters to Showcase Almost Entire Portfolio at MAKS 2019

Russian Helicopters is showcasing three civilian aircraft at the Moscow Airshow (MAKS 2019) in Zhukovsky.

The medium-sized multi-purpose Ka-62, the first serial Mi-38 helicopter, and a light-weight Ansat, whose VIP cabin is designed in the Aurus brand style, will be presented at the show for the first time.

The company will also exhibit a prototype of the VRT500 light single-engine helicopter and the VRT300 unmanned aerial vehicle developed by 'VR-Technology' design bureau.

The Ka-62 medium-sized multi-purpose helicopter will be part of the static exposition and will also take part in the fly-by of the entire line of the Russian Helicopters. A distinctive feature of the helicopter is its single-rotor scheme with a multi-blade anti-torque rotor in the annular channel of the vertical tail fin.

The civilian Mi-38 helicopter featuring a 'VIP cabin' can take up to 11 passengers on board, while the basic passenger version can carry up to 30 people. The flight range of the new helicopter is up to 1200 kilometers.

"Mikhail Leontyevich Mil used to say that our country was seemingly created especially for helicopters. It is noteworthy that in the year of the 110th anniversary of his birth, we present a novelty by the design bureau that bears his name, that is, the first serial Mi-38 helicopter. Of equal importance to this event is our Kamov premiere, Ka-62, which is being demonstrated at the air show for the first time, including the flight program," said Andrey Boginsky, the Director General of the Russian Helicopters holding company. "Our 'junior' design offices, that is, KVZ and VR-Technology, do not fall behind either, they present at MAKS-2019 new modifications of their serial machines and promising projects that will shape the future of domestic rotorcraft engineering."

Both the flight program and the static expo will feature practically the entire line of military and civilian rotorcraft by Russian Helicopters: the world's heaviest Mi-26T2V, transport assault landing Mi-38T, medium-sized Mi-171A2 and Mi-17V-5, strike support helicopters Mi-24P and Mi-35M, combat scout Ka-52 Alligator, the light helicopters Ansat and Ka-226T. The static exposition will also feature the ship borne Ka-52K helicopter and the export version of the "Night Hunter" Mi-28NE. Multipurpose Ka-32A11BC helicopter will demonstrate airborne fire suppression.

 The Novosibirsk Aircraft Repair Plant, which is part of the holding company, will present a mobile container-type service center for the maintenance and repair of Mi-8/17 helicopters.

MAKS 2019 is taking place in Moscow from 27 August to 1 September 2019.
