    It means that there will be orders, since we are thinking about the personnel.

      Ulan-Ude is ok with orders, it’s all Mi-8 customers who left Kazan. Because they have an outdated version, and the quality is lame.

      Ulan-Ude has mastered the most perfect 8k - A2:
      - new main rotor
      - new X-shaped steering
      - new APU Safir
      - new advanced cabins KBO-17, which allows the helicopter to operate on busy commercial routes and routes in normal mode, and now the helicopter crew is 2 people.
      - an updated interior, with sources of increased comfort (noise has been significantly reduced, the power of the output power buses has increased = allows you to install more comfort systems).
      - significantly revised service operations. This reduced some checks by up to 30%. Also bring checks to European requirements and standards. In general - almost ArbuziHeli / Augusta.

      And on the way is even more interesting modernization, especially for the oil industry, which can move Augusta (the dominant company in this industry).

      If they can do it in one move, then there will be a prospect. If during the creation it becomes overweight / the engine does not gain the necessary strength and you have to install two engines, then you can bury it.

        If they can one-engine, then there will be perspective.

      very interesting car

      Why is it interesting? Design? Engine - Pratt & Whitney, avionics - Thales. This Superjet 2.0 is only among the "domestic" helicopters.

        What is it interesting?

        And many of these helicopters are produced, which are at least 50% ours?

        The filling Tales was taken to optimize the basic costs + promotion, because with such a BWC it will be bought more readily than with which thread BWC-500 from Russia, without analogues and without a history of use. Well, certificates also cost money.

        Engine - there are simply no options, it is at least in some form, and not in dreams and long-range plans. Build a helicopter in this segment under VK-2500 = it’s better not to spend money and immediately score.

        The main direction of export is, well, there is also a market. For example, now they are forced to buy whole helicopters, because Ansat is expensive and too expensive to operate. Therefore, classmates VRT500 are either purchased in their entirety or assembled from boxes (screwdriver).

          They still want to release up to 30 g of 700 (!) Helicopters, while the bestseller analogue of Robinson 66 for 10 years released 763 helicopters. This is hard to believe.

    How our country lacks its high-quality engines ... What is in shipbuilding, what is in aviation .. The plant is increasing capacity - excellent news! But again, foreign motors and accessories ..

    This suggests that Kumertau is dying.

    the market for Russian helicopters is dramatically shrinking ... there are not enough orders for everyone
    a fight begins for the production of the most popular models
