MOSCOW, February 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Helicopters will showcase its upgraded multipurpose Mi-171A2 and Mi-38 at Heli-Expo 2014, opening in California, USA, on Monday, the company’s announcement says.
“The holding will participate in the Russian Hour session on February 26,” the press service said. “Taking part will be operators of Russia-built helicopters, foreign partners of the enterprise and UN experts."
"Delegates will focus on possible involvement of Russian helicopters in humanitarian missions and their technological requirements,” the company announced, noting that the Mi-171A2 was an advanced-technology version of its Mi-8/17 helicopter.
The Mi-38 is a transport and passenger machine for special missions, the manufacturer said. “A spacious cabin, low noise and vibration characteristics and multiple innovative solutions make Mi-38 one of the most comfortable and safest helicopters in its class. Thanks to its high cruising speed of 295 km/h and flight range of 1,200 kilometers Mi-38 can be used in different climate conditions,” it added.
