Russian Helicopters Group (part of the state hi-tech corporation Rostec) delivered 213 helicopters to domestic and foreign customers in 2017, the company said in an annual report on Friday.

“In the process of implementing the priority areas of its activity in 2017, the company manufactured 205 helicopters and delivered 213 helicopters to customers within the timeframe defined by its contractual documents … The Group’s repair enterprises carried out major repairs of 148 helicopters in 2016,” the report says.

“The Group increased the deliveries to Russian customers more than fivefold, first of all, as a result of implementing measures of state support for developing ambulance aviation. The basic demand was registered for helicopters of the Mi-8/17 family, and the deliveries of the Ansat light two-engine helicopter (with a weight of up to five tonnes) increased,” the annual report says.
