“In 1 - 2 years we will fully switch to the engine supplies from OAO Klimov under the import substitution programme,” Ligai said.The Kazan Helicopter Plans manufactures civilian and military helicopters Mil Mi-8 and Mi-17, as well as the light helicopter Ansat. In 2015 the plant will launch series production of a new transport passenger helicopter - Mi-38.
The Ukrainian corporation Motor Sich supplies to Russia helicopter, airplane and rocket engines. Under the 2011 contract with the Russian Helicopters holding worth $1.5 billion, Motor Sich is to supply to Russia 250 - 270 engines per year until 2016. They are used in most Russian combat and transport helicopters.
