Russian Air Force To Get 30 Ansat Heli-Trainers By 2020

The Russian Air Force will take delivery of at least thirty Ansat trainer helicopters by 2020, the service's spokesman Col. Vladimir Drik said on Tuesday.

"The Sokol aerodrome at the Syzransky Flight Training School will get six Ansat- U helicopters this year, and over 30 by 2020," Drik said.

The base is already converting to the type and starting instructor training, he said.

The Ansat, produced by Kazan Helicopters, is designed as a utility and training helicopter to replace the ageing Mil Mi-2.

The U-variant is a dedicated trainer with full dual avionics and controls and seats for six students, who can take turns at flying with the instructor.

The Ansat-U can also be configured with varying levels of control difficulty for training, and has an electronic engine management system to allow pilots to practice coping with engine failures.
