    Recent contracts show that our helicopter pilots have begun to slowly conquer the Latin American market, which is good news.

    Hindus are not as simple as they seem, they deftly play on our disagreements with the United States, previous contracts on American transport helicopters and combat helicopters are an example. It is necessary to search for new markets, increase supplies to Latin America, and try to get into the second-tier countries of NATO. After a submarine accident in India (regardless of the reasons that something happened) this market, unfortunately, will be temporarily lost. This is purely my opinion.

    request What a fright ?? According to this logic, they should have put us on the headstock for a long time and bought an aircraft carrier in another place, since there is a proposal, they’ll even build a new one for them. Well, how many zahers with our equipment did they have in the army and aviation?

      Since the beginning of the year, about 60 helicopters have been delivered to the troops, last year around 70. That is, there will already be an excess.

      The general release last year of 289 helicopters, this is what they want to go to 320 +.

    India is arming itself ..And in politics it behaves modestly. Though Russia would support in the struggle against the Anglo-Saxons (they drank a lot of blood there when they were a colony of England)

    India along the way in general, thoroughly stuck to our Mi-17. First, a contract for 80 pieces from 2008, then without waiting for the end of the first, I ordered another 71. Last year, 52 like, and now 67.

    Russian Helicopters announced that it had signed a second commercial contract at the MAKS-2013 air show for the supply of new Ka-62 helicopters. The contract for the supply of five Mi-171A1 and five Ka-62 helicopters was signed with the Colombian company Vertical de Aviacion.

    The press release said that the Mi-171A1 helicopters will be used by a subsidiary of Vertical de Aviacion in Mexico for cargo and passenger transportation. Helicopters Ka-62 are designed for operation in Colombia in the interests of the oil industry. It is expected that deliveries of the Mi-171A1 will begin in 2015, deliveries of the Ka-62 from 2016.

    In addition, within the framework of the signed contracts, Russian Helicopters Holding and Vertical de Aviacion will jointly work on certification of the Mi-171A1 in Mexico and the Ka-62 in Colombia. In 2012, the Colombian aviation authorities have already successfully completed the verification procedure (validation) of the AR IAC type certificate for the Mi-171A1 helicopter. Vertical de Aviacion has also been an active participant in the certification process.

    Vertical de Aviacion is based at El Dorado International Airport (Bogotá, Colombia). It is the largest commercial operator of the Mi-8/17 type in Latin America. The company operates 30 Mi-17 helicopters.

    The first export contract for the supply of seven Ka-62 Russian Helicopters was signed in December 2012 with the Brazilian company Atlas Táxi Aéreo.

    The first prototype of the Ka-62 helicopter in an "updated look" was completed by construction at the Arsenyev Aviation Company Progress in August 2013 and exhibited in the static display of MAKS-2013. This sample has not yet taken off - flight tests should begin until the end of 2013.
