« The Sokol aerodrome at the Syzransky Flight Training School will get six Ansat- U helicopters this year, and over 30 by 2020, » Drik said.
The base is already converting to the type and starting instructor training, he said.
The Ansat, produced by Kazan Helicopters, is designed as a utility and training helicopter to replace the ageing Mil Mi-2.
The U-variant is a dedicated trainer with full dual avionics and controls and seats for six students, who can take turns at flying with the instructor.
The Ansat-U can also be configured with varying levels of control difficulty for training, and has an electronic engine management system to allow pilots to practice coping with engine failures.
