Russian Helicopters, a subsidiary of Oboronprom, part of State Corporation Rostec has won the Golden Wings best debut award at the MAKS 2013 International Aviation and Space Salon for its presentation of the Ka-62 and Mi-38.
The Golden Wings competition is run by the MAKS 2013 organizers to celebrate the latest developments in aviation technology as well as outstanding business and marketing efforts by MAKS 2013 participants.
Russian Helicopters this year presented a whole range of new models, including the latest medium Ka-62 and the multirole Mi-38. These helicopters are the most eagerly anticipated new models from the Russian helicopter-building industry, and were nominated as a promising new product.
During the MAKS 2013 Golden Wings awards ceremony, Russian Helicopters received a prize and diploma signed by Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov, who also chairs the MAKS 2013 Organizing Committee.
The Ka-62 is the first Russian helicopter created in close collaboration with international partners. Russian Helicopters demonstrated the prototype of the helicopter for the first time at MAKS 2013, and also signed a contract to supply five Ka-62 to Columbia’s Vertical de Aviacion.
The Mi-38 is a new multirole transport and passenger helicopter. In 2012 the second prototype of the Mi-38 set five new world records, which were officially registered by the World Air Sports Federation (FAI) in March 2013. At MAKS 2013 the Mi-38 participated in flight displays and also formed part of the Russian Helicopters static display.
