Show: India Aviation 2014 - Day 1

Over 150 Russian-made helicopters are currently involved in UN humanitarian and peacekeeping operations around the world. Speaking at the Russian Hour conference at Heli-Expo in Anaheim, California, representatives of Russian Helicopters, a subsidiary of Oboronprom, part of State Corporation Rostec, and commercial aviation firms UTair, PANH Helicopters and Ukrainian Helicopters discussed their positive experience of cooperation in this area.

“The extensive use of Russian-made helicopters in UN missions is further testimony to the unique capabilities of our technology,” Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev said. “Russian helicopters are unmatched on humanitarian and peacekeeping missions. I am confident that the new technologies we are currently working to develop will also become effective instruments for UN missions.”
