The first Italian AW139 Agusta Westland helicopters will be assembled at a plant near Moscow in NovemberThe first Italian helicopters of the Agusta brand will be assembled at a plant in the Moscow region in November of this year. This was announced today at a press conference by Russian President Vladimir Putin following talks with Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti.

According to the head of the Russian state, "in the Moscow region a plant was built for the assembly of Italian helicopters Agusta, the first vehicles will be assembled as early as November 2012 of the year."

Putin also recalled that a joint project is successfully being implemented between Russia and Italy to create a regional Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft. He stressed that at the moment the order book for this aircraft exceeds 170 units.

As previously reported, the holding company "Helicopters of Russia" and the Anglo-Italian company Agusta Westland (AgustaWestland) created a joint venture "Helivert" (HeliVert) in Tomilino near Moscow, which will produce AW139 helicopters.

Information about the first AW139 customers of the Russian assembly was not disclosed, however, sources close to the joint venture claim that today there are more than 5 customers for these helicopters. One of them, in particular, plans to transfer 10 of its AW139 to the operation of UTair.

      Helicopters are Italy’s strongest in aviation, but we don’t need them!
      Everything is great with helicopters!

          The French were helped (Mistrals), the Italians were helped (Iveco, wheeled tanks and helicopters), the IMF helped (10 lard) ... And in response they only spit ... Something interesting foreign policy from Russia, some kind of help to the detriment of potential Russian manufacturers opponents in exchange for "pouring slop" belay
          Who is next in line? Turkey like S-400 wants to give (together with the technical documentation)?

            Dear urzul, so much money has been spent there that it was possible to create two (or more) aircraft, but in the end do not understand that of imported components with a door from a Boeing (corporation) with a cost comparable to the cost of the fuselage (several million dollars).
            And the loot is always easier to blame on "development", the easiest way is to spread your hands and say "well, I couldn't, I couldn't," like that horse from the joke.

                    I know firsthand about holding "fair" tenders, when companies' proposals are presented without specifying the name of the company in the submitted documentation, but when you sit down to play cards with a sharpie, it is stupid to have hopes of winning. Unfortunately, tenders, loans-for-shares auctions and other "delights of the Western economy" do not work in Russian conditions, moreover, Russian reality is capable of infecting even Western monsters (Mercedes and kickbacks) recourse

                        By the way, now we have the same thing not the ship commander, but the aircraft commander (with emphasis on the last syllable ... we joked like that, and now it remains), but this is only on paper and in everyday life, even in officialdom (statement of the problem, etc. .d.) only the commander of the ship !!!

        Who else carries whom, it’s just that not everyone at first makes conclusions about the situation,
        about the assembly of AW139 in Russia, by Russian workers (well, not everyone cares. see jobs for the population) - the main question for which Kamov or Mil products is it a competitor? Mi-8 is definitely not, Ansat is also by! Ka-62 has not yet been tested (according to the plan 2012-2014year)
        So what's the panic? or I'm just not in the know, so sorry generously for being approved.

    And why did not indicate in which area these helicopters will be used. Perhaps as commercial. In our country, almost all business aviation consists of foreign cars, including a helicopter fleet. Our industry somehow masters this sector very poorly. Perhaps because the demand there is not so great.

      Lepota. And such garbage in almost all mechanical engineering. Soon, domestic products in the museum can only be seen. The treasury will receive money from only one assembly shop, at best, from a couple of suppliers, a little from customs. This is not domestic production, where the tax base is much wider. The substitution of imported domestic engineering products, even those assembled with us, has an impact on the employment of workers along the entire chain, in this case, in helicopter engineering. So, I don’t understand your joy! I do not think that turning into a Great Screwdriving Power is a worthy fate for Russia.

              What prevents the government from giving money to fine-tune Mi or Ka? Or are we only super competitive? I do not see long lines behind the car. Rather, Bombardier or Embryers will take. The same with helicopters. Unfortunately. I am not an economist, I am an exploiter. Of the economists (greats), only K. Marx knows. Everything follows him. And GSS is almost bankrupt, they drive AFL below cost, otherwise they would not take a car from them, and solid contracts to a fig - where is the profit, where are the cars? Engines are not enough - what else will not be enough? Understand, I am not opposed to the production of any aircraft, but when the whole country begins to argue about some kind of BREAKTHROUGH aircraft ..... After all, not all experts have died out, brains still remain. An ordinary plane with its childhood illnesses. But because of him, stopping financing almost the entire industry is too much.

      As far as I know, Ka-226, Ansat and Mi-34 were developed. Mi-34 prototypes were made in Arseniev and brought to the cost center (Moscow region). Ansat is a purely Kazan development. Well, the Ka-226 is Kamov. First abandoned the coaxial circuit. Here are three light helicopter designs. A messenger, a medical officer, a scout - a lot of work. After Mi-2, we did not have light helicopters. Italian helicopters are good. In my opinion, they were not heavy.

        AA now I’m understandable claims from the Air Force and the purchase of a small batch of helicopters for testing
        Nobility has yet to abolish servility in the Air Force. everything is like with cars ..... he is Mercedes and in Africa Mercedes
        God bless them with the generals, I’m wondering what will the light helicopter find its place in the Air Force.
        A good helicopter, but ours is better. especially the Ka-226th!
        But the fact that our people may be on the street (a blow to factories near Moscow) is no longer good !!!

        As I understand it, initially they will go to the GA and there they were used before.
        Here is what is interesting
        1 Engines
        2 pace of production. Then I looked at the list of vacancies http://www.kumapp.ru/index.php?option=com_jobboard&view=list&layout=table&Itemid
        = 21
        There are 2 reasons
        a) at the factory, problems with snages and personnel go away
        b) understaff to the state for there are orders.
