Russian Helicopters will present its current model range alongside upcoming models to helicopter operators at Heli-Expo 2014 (24-27 February, Anaheim Convention Centre).

Two new models – the Mi-171A2and Mi-38 – will be at the centre of the company’s display at stand 4002.

The Mi-171A2, the newest addition to the Mi-8/17 range, has been designed using the latest advances in aerospace technology, and incorporates more than 100 technological innovations. The helicopter was developed based on feedback from Mi-8/17 operators and draws on the years of operational experience of these helicopters around the world. This approach means the Mi-171A2 is more economical and commercially profitable to run, which will help to strengthen Russian Helicopters’ position as the leader in the medium-class helicopter segment.

The second new model, the multirole transport- and passenger-carrier Mi-38, can fly complex missions. Its spacious cabin, low levels of noise and vibrations and numerous innovations make the Mi-38 one of the most comfortable and safest helicopters in its class. With a cruising speed of 295 km/h and range of 1,200 km, the Mi-38 can operate in a range of climatic conditions.
