Russia delivers its First Ansat Helicopter to Bosnia

The Russian Helicopters holding company (part of Rostec State Corporation) has delivered a first Ansat helicopter to a client in Europe. The operator of the rotorcraft, which is equipped for medical operations, is the Ministry of Interior of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This is the first of three helicopters under the delivery contract.

Ansat for Bosnia and Herzegovina comes with a medical module equipped with a stretcher and a medical shelf. The helicopter cabin has place for transporting one patient and two chairs for accompanying doctors. Equipment configuration includes a system for artificial lung ventilation, tele-ECG allowing to monitor cardiac activity in real time, and various other equipment for the evacuation of patients of varying severity. The delivery set includes five seats, which can be installed instead of the medical module and carry seven passengers in the helicopter cabin. The helicopter also comes with active vibration control system, Verticalmag writes.

“This delivery testifies that Ansat is competitive on the European market, and we see potential for new orders. I am confident that European operators will appreciate the favorable cost of operating the helicopter, its versatility and reliability. Two more Ansats will be handed over to the law enforcement agencies of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2021 and 2022. They will be additionally equipped with searchlights, fast-rope deployment system, a winch and an external sling,” said the director general of Russian Helicopters holding company Andrey Boginsky. 

The delivery contract of three helicopters to Bosnia and Herzegovina also included the training of three technicians and two pilots of the customer in the Kazan Helicopters Aviation Training Center
