Russian Helicopters held negotiations with the Mexican
company Craft Avia Center for the sale and maintenance of Ansat helicopters on
the Mexican market. Today, the Russian helicopters fleet in Mexico includes
about 50 vehicles of Mi-8/17 series, and two Mi-26 helicopters.
As of today, Craft Avia Center has submitted an application to the aviation
authorities of Mexico for validation of the Russian flight certificate for Ansat.
Besides, Craft Avia Center has commenced construction of a service centre with a
total floor area of 4,000 m2 and a show room for sale of Russian helicopters.
Dmitry Lelikov, Deputy General Director of the Rostec State Corporation, and
General Director of the Russian Helicopters holding company Andrey Boginsky have
held negotiations with the General Director of Craft Avia Centre José de
Vicente. During the negotiations the issues of potential demand for Russian
civil helicopters on the Mexican market, as well as the issues of obtaining the
Mexican certificate for the Ansat helicopter were discussed.
‘Craft Avia Center applied to us with an offer for distribution of Ansat
helicopters on the Mexican market. We have already prepared and sent them our
commercial proposal for supply of one vehicle that will be used for purposes of
demonstration to potential buyers. As of today, our proposal is being reviewed
by the counterparty and we hope that in the nearest future we will reach the
stage of contract signing,’ stated General Director of the Russian Helicopters
holding company Andrey Boginsky.
