Over 150 Russian-made helicopters are currently involved in UN humanitarian and peacekeeping operations around the world. Speaking at the Russian Hour conference at Heli-Expo 2014, representatives of Russian Helicopters and commercial aviation firms UTair, PANH Helicopters and Ukrainian Helicopters discussed their positive experience of cooperation in this area.
“The extensive use of Russian-made helicopters in UN missions is further testimony to the unique capabilities of our technology,” Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev said. “Russian helicopters are unmatched on humanitarian and peacekeeping missions. I am confident that the new technologies we are currently working to develop will also become effective instruments for UN missions.”
