Ansat light multi-purpose helicopter has been certified for operation under extremely high temperatures up to +50 degrees Celsius. The certificate of approval for extension of the vehicle's operational temperature range has been handed over to Andrey Boginsky, CEO director of the Russian Helicopters holding company, by Alexander Neradko, director of the Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) during the XI HeliRussia 2018 International Exhibition of Helicopter Industry.

As previously reported, serviceability of Ansat under extremely high temperatures had been tested in Pakistan last autumn. Ground and flight tests confirmed that all systems and units of the helicopter work properly under ambient temperature up to +50 degrees Celsius.

"Today, Ansat attracts interest of a number of foreign partners, including countries of Asia and Middle East, therefore, extension of the temperature mode of operation would enable us to significantly increase the circle of potential customers," – noted Andrey Boginsky, CEO of Russian Helicopters.

It should be recalled that in 2017 Ansat was also certified for operation under extremely low temperature (up to -45 degrees Celsius) following the tests held in Yakutia. As a result, today Ansat helicopter is certified for operation in the temperature range from –45 to +50 degrees Celsius.

Ansat is capable of speeds as high as 275 km/h and has a flying range of above 500 km. In May 2015, a helicopter modification with an ambulance module was certified as per all applicable international standards of ambulance aviation.
