Vietnam Shows Interest in Russian Helicopters

The delegation showed particular interest in Ansat and the MI-15V-5

Vietnam sent a delegation to the capital of Tatarstan to hold talks with the experts of the Russian Helicopters to discuss the question of shipment of civilian helicopters. The talks between the foreign visitors and the experts of the Russian Helicopters holding were held on the grounds of the Kazan Helicopter Plant.

During their two-days visit to Kazan the guests were shown the assembly sites of the ground units and fuselages of Mi-8/17, Ansat, and Mi-38 helicopters. The members of the delegation also visited the major series area where Mi-8MTV-1 and Mi-17V-5 helicopters were exhibited and the minor series area where the Ansat helicopters are assembled.

"The Socialist Republic of Vietnam is one of our promising partners and possesses large operating experience in the field of aviation technology. During more than half a century of cooperation we have shipped over 50 helicopters to Vietnam, including Mi-4, Mi-8, Mi-17, Mi17-1В, Mi-171Е, and Mi-172. Our helicopters are exploited by both air forces and civil aviation - many of them are used in the oil industry for the drilling shelfs. The multirole Mi-38 attracted great interest of the foreign delegation," said Alexander Shcherbinin, Deputy CEO for marketing and business development of the Russian Helicopters holding.

The Ansat and the MI-15V-5 attracted special attention of the delegation. Demonstration flights of the helicopters were organized at the aircraft testing complex of the plant
