MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. The holding company Helicopters of Russia (an affiliate of Rostec) will display its light multi-role helicopter Ansat and fire-fighting Ka-32A11VS at the international aerospace show FAMEX-2017 in Mexico.
"We see Mexico as one of our main partners in the Latin American region," the holding company’s press-service said.
"We would like to present to our Mexican partners the light helicopter Ansat, available in a variety of configurations for both civil, military and law enforcement customers," the company’s deputy CEO for post-sale maintenance, Igor Chechikov said, adding that at the forthcoming exhibition at the Santa Lucia air base on April 26-29 the company would pay much attention to maintenance and post-sale support.
Helicopters of Russia will present the VIP configuration of Ansat and the fire-fighting model of the multirole Ka-32A11VC and a model of the transport helicopter Mi-17V-5. Rosoboronexport will demonstrate a model of the Ka-226T helicopter.

It is capable of carrying up to four tonnes of payload inside the fuselage or suspended externally. The helicopter can be used in combat operations, for search and rescue and as an ambulance.
