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.
