João Velloso, president of Helipark, said: “We are very happy and proud on becoming Russian Helicopters service centre and we hope to give support not only to our helicopter but to others in the near future. Our Kamov Ka-32 is a great tool for several uses and unrivalled on its performance.”

“Certification of the service centre is a natural continuation of our successful partnership with Helipark, and we believe it will have a positive effect on the promotion of Russian-built Kamov-brand commercial helicopters in South America,” said Sergei Ostapenko, Russian Helicopters sales director for commercial helicopters. “This is a key region for Russian Helicopters, and we are keen to offer high-quality service to helicopter operators throughout the whole product life-cycle.”

The Helipark authorised service centre will be able to offer repair and maintenance for the Ka-32A11BC, which the company has successfully operated since 2012.

The Ka-32A11BC currently operates in more than 30 countries around the world, including EU states, South Korea, China, Japan, Kazakhstan, Canada and Russia.
