Dear colleagues! In the development and manufacture of helicopters holding company "Russian Helicopters", it uses as its own scientific and technical potential, and also the achievements of Russian science and technology organizations. Improving the range of development carried out in two areas: modernization of existing machines and the creation of a new generation of helicopters. The major criteria for deciding whether a customer-oriented and multi-purpose nature of the art being created. It caters not only to the needs of customers, but also to strengthen the position of the Russian helicopter industry, as well as the domestic and global markets.
Currently, the most widespread in the domestic market are middle-class helicopters. Certified and started the production of multi-purpose helicopter Mi-171A2, which will replace the Mi-8, Mi-17. At the helicopter made more than 20 major design changes. Helicopter has a powerful economic engine Russian production "Klimov", a new rotor with composite blades improved aerodynamics and a so-called glass cockpit.
In the development of a set of measures has been provided, which allowed to reduce labor costs for maintenance, optimize the cost of flight hours and implement the concept of reducing costs for our operators. The helicopter used for transport and passenger transport in the interests of a wide range of operators, including transportation of the watch, loads on offshore rigs in the interests of fuel and energy complex. In 2017, it will be produced and delivered to customers 4 helicopters.
Work continues on the implementation of the program of promotion of the new Mi-38. Thanks to the technical solutions used the helicopter is superior to other helicopters in its class in payload, passenger capacity, the basic flight characteristics. The helicopter is certified, the first delivery of the passenger modification of the helicopter is planned in 2018. The helicopter can be used in a wide range of climatic conditions, including marine, tropical, cool climate, including in the Arctic.
Currently, the holding company specialists are working to further expand the performance, increased payload, enhance operational capabilities in the high altitude and extreme temperatures.
The class of light helicopters manufactured by the holding company, represented by models "ANSAT" and Ka-226. Light multipurpose helicopter "ANSAT" certified in a variety of applications - passenger, health, universal. We assume that it will replace the Mi-2 on the whole range of tasks, ensure a high level of safety and enhanced transport capabilities.
In 2016 the first Russian cars to commercial customers, export contracts have been delivered. The machine has a spacious cargo cabin, which is being converted to different variants of the target application. "ANSAT" can be used to solve a wide range of tasks. Currently, this is the most sought-after helicopter to meet the challenges of air ambulance, it can also be used for cargo delivery, passenger and initial training.
Light multipurpose helicopter Ka-226T is built on a modular pattern and is available in a variety of targeted modifications, apply to a wide range of tasks in the interests of civil air operations. Ka-226T has increased altitude performance. Today, among other things, we are actively pursuing the Russian-Indian project for the joint production of helicopters.
Separately, the direction of the national economy problems - a helicopter for operation in harsh climatic conditions and helicopters for Arctic conditions. In addition to helicopters, which are now produced and are planning to start in the near future, the holding is already supplying modern equipment, which is adapted for use in regions with poorly developed transport networks, in the far north, in the Arctic. In 2016, 4 of the helicopter for the company "Rosneft" were delivered. The Mi-38 will create new transport capacity for government and commercial customers.
Promising average commercial helicopter. On the basis of scientific and technical reserve formed in previous years, including in the framework of long-term high-speed helicopter, which is implemented under the auspices of the Industry and Trade Ministry, is developing a promising medium commercial helicopter. Basic helicopter configuration provides the ability to create a wide range of civil helicopter modifications and special purpose. Features allow you to carry up to 22 passengers.
The helicopter of light class. Another direction of the holding company is to create a single-engine light multipurpose helicopter maximum takeoff weight of up to 2 tons. It is the mass segment of the global civil helicopter market, related to general aviation. For us, this new segment.
Here, we set ourselves the following objectives:
* create a product attractive for commercial customers as well as for personal use;
* to enter new markets for us;
* This helicopter has good prospects in the niche corporate transport, monitoring fuel and energy facilities, initial training.
A key advantage of the product is the transport performance and range, the best-in-class helicopters.
Today Dmitry O. and colleagues have already talked about the fact that the state attaches great importance to the aviation industry. In previous periods was GTLK capitalize not only on the job of aircraft, last year 3.8 billion rubles were made in GTLK capital to address the medical evacuation tasks. These funds are used for the construction of "ANSAT", Mi-8 and Mi-17. Today, together, our colleagues from GTLK, Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Health are actively working with the regions. Today we see increased demand and would ask colleagues to support us in this and in the following periods.
Entering the market with the new civilian products always fraught with additional financial burden, as the manufacturer, and the operator. Success in sales depends largely on the development of the market of services and availability of financial instruments. As I said, the program is actively developing on medevakuatsiya, extending the vesting period for 2018 and subsequent years will allow us to increase the order book and the regions to raise the level of medical care, especially in critical situations and difficult terrain. Also, we consider it expedient to study the possibility of including helicopter services in the compulsory health insurance scheme (OMC), which would allow to offset the costs, including insurance companies and organizations in the medical evacuation. Solution of the problem to improve the transport accessibility could also help to subsidize passenger traffic, using helicopters in remote areas, the organization of regular routes in areas with underdeveloped land transport infrastructure and the development of ground infrastructure for use of helicopters.
Dear Dmitry O.! Dear members of the board, we were asked to give relevant instructions in the minutes of today's meeting, to include in the plan the discussion of these issues at the upcoming meeting of the Board. In general, I have everything. Accordingly, the main problem that we see today, are actively developing - is to increase accessibility for carriers of our aircraft. Of course, the new aircraft technology will be more expensive than the amortized equipment produced earlier. That's just solve this problem, it seems to us, it should be discussed in the next meeting of the Board. In order to harmonize the approaches, both for producers and for the operators.
