"Russian Helicopter Systems" fleet got the latest domestic helicopter ANSAT and became its first non-state operator. As part of this event in Helipark "Barvikha" I attended the presentation and demonstration flights of the new helicopter.

A few words about the hero  ...

Light twin-engine multipurpose ANSAT helicopter ( translating from the Tatar "easy", "simple") manufactured at the Kazan Helicopter Plant of "Russian Helicopters" and is capable of carrying 1300 kg of payload in the cabin, and the cabin has an option of fast transformation. In 2013, an ANSAT helicopter ANSAT with hydromechanical control system has been certified to carry freight, and in December 2014 - passengers. In May 2015 it gotthe certification of modifications to the medevac version.

Due to competitive advantages in its class, Ansat is interesting not only for Russian operators but also for foreign. Its various modifications, as well as the possibility of a quick-change allow the helicopter to successfully meet the challenges of both civilians and security forces.

Helipark "Barvikha" was  opened in 2016 and, together with "Moscow City" and "House of Music" makes a part of "Russian Helicopter Systems" heliport network in Moscow aeronautical zone.

Helipark located in the Odintsovo district of the Moscow region in close proximity to Rublevo Assumption, Podushkinskoye, Mozhaisk and the Minsk highway and bypass roads Odintsovo.

Despite it is compact, Helipark "Barvikha" has a stylish design and a two floor building rather extensive aviation hangar and can accommodate, for example, up to 7 helicopters Robinson R-44. It is also equipped with three helipads and a full maintenance ground station for helicopters.
