The Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant assembles the first Mi-171A3 offshore helicopter. A helicopter designed for flying over the sea will be presented in 2021 at the MAKS air show.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the head of the ministry, Denis Manturov, who visited the enterprise, said that Russia had no previous experience in the production of such machines. The helicopter is specially designed for the oil and gas sector.

The helicopter is designed digitally, which allows assembling units made at different plants into a single whole. It will meet the IOGP requirements for transporting passengers to offshore platforms.

The plant will also release next year a prototype of the Baikal aircraft, its serial production is planned to be launched by 2023. Baikal is to replace the An-2 aircraft.
