The co-operation agreement was signed at the show by Andrey Boginsky, Director General of Russian Helicopters Holding Company and Air Ambulance Technology Managing Director, Nicole Kunter-Hudson.

Andrey Boginsky said: “We are pleased to announce the start of co-operation with Air Ambulance Technology and we hope that this will be long-term and fruitful work. Creation of the new medical module, which meets international standards for medical aviation, will allow the holding company to expand the pool of potential customers, including European companies. We expect that installation of such equipment will help Ansat to gain European Aviation Safety Agency Certification.”

Ansat is a multipurpose light helicopter powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada engines each rated at 630hp (469kW).
