The Ansat Aurus Design design project was carried

operator very soon, and the interest shown in this helicopter at
the MAKS air foretells new orders. The use of best domestic
technologies and materials, as well as the attention to detail are
the hallmarks of the Aurus brand, and we, with our colleagues from
FSUE NAMI, have worked hard to create the design of the Ansat
helicopter in the best traditions of this brand. The helicopter
possesses excellent flight performance characteristics and
provides an uncompromising level of flight safety."
