By 2020, Russian Helicopters need to take a global market share of at least 18% and produce at least 470 machines a year. At the beginning of August, for the first time, the flight program on Rosvertol was performed by a dual-control Mi-28UB helicopter. It was he who most of all interested Putin. The president even got up and looked into the cabin. The head of state also inspected the secret part of the workshop and the VIP-interior of the Mi-38.
“The Russian helicopter industry has been demonstrating satisfactory results in recent years,” Putin estimated. “Modern domestic helicopters have proven themselves to be reliable, high-quality machines with optimal technical and price characteristics.” About 36 billion rubles to 2020 will be allocated to support civil helicopter engineering. Development must meet modern requirements. Complaints need to analyze and eliminate shortcomings, remembering that world leaders are not standing still.
