Russian Helicopters Beefs Up Sales Effort in EU

 - July 28, 2011, 9:25 AM

The European Union market is a “top priority” for Russian Helicopters, and the manufacturer does not want to limit those Russian-made models that are in operation there to rescue and firefighting. The company wants to “improve the after-sale service, update already delivered Russian rotorcraft to comply with EASA requirements and improve parts delivery.” Cited as ground for future work are projects such as the Kamov Ka-226T light and Ka-62 medium twins, powered by European engines, the soon-to-be-certified Inaer service center for Ka-32A11BCs and plans for a pilot training facility.
