Russia exports seaplanes Be-200CHS to France

Russia exports seaplanes Be-200CHS to FranceAccording to Lenta.ru, France became interested in the Russian Be-200ES seaplanes. According to the statement of the general director of the Taganrog Beriev Scientific Aviation Technical Complex (OAO TANTK named after GM Beriev), the first batch can be two to four cars. In the case of successful cooperation, you can count on the supply of 12-15 aircraft.

France became interested in the possibility of buying a Be-200 CS after the completion of the air show at Le Bourget, which was held on 20-26 on June 2011. Immediately after participating in the air show, the Russian aircraft flew over to the base of the French Civil Aviation Department, where its test tests were conducted. It is curious that although the fire-prevention version of the Be-200ESE flew to France, its assessment was carried out as a multi-purpose aircraft. Currently, the French working group is preparing the test reports of the Be-200ES, on the basis of which it will be decided to purchase the aircraft.


The cost of the potential contract is not specified. The cost of one Be-200 ЧС is about 900 million rubles. Thus, the purchase of 15 aircraft could cost France 13,5 billion rubles.

The Be-200ЧС is capable of transporting tons of water to 32, after dumping it intake either at the airfield or at the pond in planing mode.

The aircraft is capable of flying at speeds up to 610 kilometers per hour and flying over distances up to 3,1 thousands of kilometers.

The design of the aircraft provides for its operation both on land airfields and in water bodies with a wave height of up to 1,2 meters.
