The Russian Helicopters holding is intensively working up an issue to establish an authorized technical maintenance center in Iran with the Iran Helicopter Support and Renewal Company (IHSRC), according to the holding’s Deputy Director General Alexander Shcherbinin.
“The Russian Helicopters company is discussing the potential supply of Ka-226T and Ansat light utility helicopters to Iran’s Ministry of Health and Medical Education. The issue of the aforementioned helicopters` licensed manufacturing in Iran is also being worked up. We suppose that Tehran has a requirement for 60 Russia-originated light utility rotor-wing aircraft”, Shcherbinin said.
At present, over 50 Russia-originated rotor-wing aircraft have been registered in Iran. The Mil Mi-17 medium transport helicopter remains the most popular one. Iran uses almost all variants of the aircraft, including Mi-17, Mi-171, Mi-171E, Mi-8MTV, and Mi-8MTV-5, the official added. (Russian Aviation/Business World Magazine)
