Russian Helicopters and the Korea Forest Service have opened a maintenance and service centre for Ka-32 helicopters.
“The opening of the new service centre will first of all have a positive effect on prospects for promoting Russian-built Kamov-brand helicopters in East Asia,” said Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev. “This is a key region for our industry, and we want to be able to offer helicopter operators high-quality maintenance services through the whole life-cycle of our helicopters.”
The multi-role Ka-32 has been supplied to South Korea since 1993.
The Korea Forest Service is currently considering expanding its fleet of Ka-32 helicopters by purchasing the latest model in the series, the Ka-32A11BC.
