Russian Helicopters, part of State Corporation Rostec, has received an approval to increase the take-off weight of the Ansat light multirole helicopter produced at Kazan Helicopter Plant.    

Russian Helicopters specialists have finished work on increasing the take-off weight of the Ansat light multirole helicopter from 3,300 to 3,600 kg.  The change will increase the helicopter’s commercial load by 300 kg, thus improving its technical and operational characteristics. At the same time, Kazan engineers will continue to increase the Ansat’s flight range and resource potential. To increase the flight range, an upgrade of the fuel system and installation of larger additional fuel tanks will be performed in 2017.

“The increase in payload of Ansat without doubts will affect the helicopter’s attractiveness and increase its competitiveness.  We are looking forward to a rapid growth of new orders from our foreign partners,” - said Russian Helicopters’ deputy CEO for marketing and international business development Alexander Shcherbinin.

In December 2014, the Ansats with hydro-mechanical control system were approved to allow carrying passengers. In May 2015, the medevac versions of Ansats received an approval. In December 2015, the helicopter’s version with a VIP-cabin was certified.

The new light helicopter Ansat has been already introduced by Russian Helicopters at its  traditional markets including the CIS, South-East Asia, Africa and Latin America.
