We are going to join some helicopters and fly straight to the exhibition Heli Russia-2013 and also visit the joint company of “Russian Helicopters” and “AgustaWestland” where they build AW-139 helicopters.
Three exhibits of the Heli Russia 2013 are almost ready for the flight. On the picture above – AW-139 – medium twin-engine helicopter.
Another exhibit is a light multipurpose Ka-226T.
Mi-35 is behind the reporters.
Mi-35 is the first to take off.
It is followed by AW-139.
AW-139 is a medium two-engine helicopter with a takeoff mass of 6400/6800 kg, it can transport up to fifteen passengers. Aw-139 is often used as a VIP helicopter for special flights and work on shlefs, in emergency situations, rescue operations, for fire fighting.
