“We plan to strengthen our business ties with our partners in the Middle East, while also developing cooperation on delivering the latest helicopter technology and on providing after-sales and modernization services,” said Russian Helicopters' CEO Alexander Mikheev
There are more than 500 Soviet and Russian-made military and commercial helicopters operating in the region. Helicopters from the legendary Mi-8/17 series, comprise most of this fleet. More than 50 of these aircraft are operated in Iran, according tp Mikheev.
The new multirole Mi-171A2 was also showcased at the event.
During the Exhibition, Russian Helicopters’ representatives met with Iran Aviation Industries Organization, Fanavaran Aseman, PARS Aviation Service, and Interavia, to talk about delivery of Mi-8/17, Ka-32A11BC, Ka-226T helicopters and after sales service systems, including modernisation, delivery of spares parts and personnel training. Talks were also held with the Red Crescent Society of the Islamic Republic of Iran on deliveries of the medical Ka-226T helicopter.

Discussions with Iran's PANHA company focused on creating and developing after-sales service systems for Russian-made helicopters at existing aircraft repair plants and service centres. In mid-November, the parties signed contracts for the delivery of spare parts and technical support and retooling the service and repair centre for Mi-8/17 commercial helicopters. Establishing service and repair systems for Russian-made helicopters across the globe is a priority for Russian Helicopters.

The Trade and Industrial Dialogue: Russia-Iran 2015 international exhibition is organized by the Russian Federation’s Ministry of Industry and Trade.
