Russian Helicopters, a subsidiary of Oboronprom, part of State Corporation Rostec and a leading global designer and manufacturer of helicopters, will hold the third International Russian Helicopters Operators Conference (IRHOC-2013) during the MAKS 2013 International Aviation & Space Salon.
The conference will take place on 26-28 August at the Radisson Royal Hotel in Moscow. Russian Helicopters has invited around 200 operators of Russian-built helicopters from 40 countries. For delegates’ convenience, the conference, which will start at 10am on 26 August, will be held in Russian and English.
IRHOC is an important part of Russian Helicopters’ integrated policy to create a global multi-level service network for Russian-built helicopters. The conference will discuss current issues regarding operating Russian helicopters and maintaining airworthiness, after-sales service and progress on the development of new helicopter technologies. IRHOC-2013 will help boost international dialogue between the producer and helicopter operators, address current issues and push forward the search for and introduction of new after-sales service solutions for Russian-built helicopters around the world.
Delegates will have the opportunity to get to know the current Russian Helicopters model range on static display at MAKS-2013. This year Russian Helicopters will showcase prototypes of several of its latest models including the Mi-171A2 and Ka-62.
The Mi-171A2 is a unique Russian Helicopters project that has been developed in collaboration with operating companies to meet the needs of their helicopter business. Partner companies from around the world that operate Russian-built helicopters have been involved in the process of creating the new machine from the start, and have said what they want to see in terms of flight and transportation capabilities. The dialogue was conducted during the marketing presentation of the Mi-171A2 around the world and at previous international conferences in Moscow.
Conference delegates and MAKS visitors will also be able to see the new Mi-38 transport helicopter, which is already undergoing ground and flight testing in prototype form, as well as other helicopters from the company’s model range.
