Russian-made Mi-38 multirole civil helicopters attracted the attention of foreign buyers at Farnborough Airshow in the United Kingdom, the manufacturer said Tuesday.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Farnborough International Airshow will run in Hampshire, England from Monday through Sunday. It is expected to draw thousands of trade visitors. In 2014, it brought $204 billion worth of confirmed orders.
“The Mi-38 multirole helicopter showcased by the [Russian Helicopters] holding at Farnborough Airshow attracted considerable interest of foreign contractors from several countries,” the company’s statement read.
The Russian helicopter-maker plans to build the passenger and “offshore” versions of the Mi-38 helicopter to widen the range of missions it can be deployed in. The chopper can be used for search-and-rescue operations and serve as a flying hospital.
