Ansat VIP version receives type certification

Russian Helicopters has received two amendment approvals for the helicopter’s VIP cabin and air-conditioning system from the Federal Air Transport Agency.

The certification means that the helicopter can now start commercial operation. There has been interest from clients both in Russia and abroad, as well as Russia’s Ministry of Industry.

“We never stop working to improve our helicopters, and proof of that is the unique Ansat.”

“We never stop working to improve our helicopters, and proof of that is the unique Ansat,” said Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev.

Work is underway to increase the range of the helicopter by adding an additional 200kg fuel tank system. Also in development is a 750 kg capacity failsafe fuel system and improved operational capabilities.

Kazan Helicopters, a Russian Helicopters company, designs and produces the Ansat. Work on achieving certification of the Ansat began in 2011.
