Airbus Helicopters will participate in the international helicopter industry exhibition HeliRussia 2016 being held in Moscow on May 19-21.

Emeric Lhomme, CEO of Airbus Helicopters Vostok said: “Airbus Helicopters, as a leader with over 50% of the market share in the EMS segment, is ready to contribute to the development of the emerging market of emergency medical services in Russia. HeliRussia is a unique opportunity to present our specific solutions to the key market players and how they meet the demands of the Russian market.”

In February 2016 Airbus Helicopters and Ural Works of Civil Aviation (UWCA) signed an agreement on the licensed assembly of H135 helicopters at the Russian manufacturer’s facility in Yekaterinburg.

“The H135 fully corresponds to the needs of the rising EMS market in Russia. Airbus Helicopters is ready not only to invest in the development of this segment through the assembly partnership with UWCA, but also to share the experience and technological know-how with our Russian colleagues and partners,” added Lhomme.

Airbus Helicopters will present a light twin-engine H135 helicopter operated by Austria’s ÖAMTC (Österreichischer Automobil-, Motorrad- und Touring Club) on its booth.

The booth will also display a mock-up of the H160, the most recent development at Airbus Helicopters.
