09.09.2015 / Tianjin

Russian Helicopters (part of State Corporation Rostec) has concluded an agreement with China for delivery of 3 Ka-32A11BC helicopters by the end of 2015.

The Ka-32A11BC is designed to carry out specialised search and rescue and construction work, transport cargo within the cabin or on an external sling, logging, evacuating the sick and injured, complex firefighting missions, patrols and support for special operations.

The Ka-32A11BC is ideally suited to China's highly urban centres, its environment and climate. It operates effectively in highly built-up cities, remote mountainous and forested regions, and can also land on decks and small vessels, drilling rigs, and unprepared difficult to access locations. They can be operated by one pilot, and the cabin can be equipped with additional specialised equipment.

Experts recognise the Ka-32A11BC as one of the world's finest fire-fighting helicopters, and it is a symbol of the Global Helicopter Firefighting Initiative, a programme aimed at increasing the efficiency of specialised firefighting helicopters kitted out with suspended fire-fighting systems, water cannons and other firefighting equipment.
