Russian Helicopters showcase two aircraft at ABACE
Russian Helicopters is showcasing the multirole Ka-32A11BC and light Ka-226T helicopters at ABACE. The Asian aviation market and China in particular, is one of the biggest destinations for Russian-built helicopters. Deliveries to China have traditionally been a core priority in Russian Helicopters' marketing policy. Helicopters are one of the major items that Russia's machine-building industry exports to China. In July 2012, Rosoboronexport signed a contract to supply 55 Mi-171E transport helicopters to China, in a deal that extended a previously fulfilled contract for 32 helicopters. The company recently opened a new Russian Helicopters service center for after-sales care and operational support at Qingdao.
