Ansat-U Helicopter Tested by Air Force Training Center Students
The first students of the Zhukovsky and Gagarin Air Force Academy’s Military Training Center have finished training on new Ansat-U helicopters designed and built at Kazan Helicopters. The Ansat-U helicopters were passing operation tests, and students were trained on Mi-2 helicopters. Training on the Ansat-U was completed by 29 students, who will receive training on the Mi-8/17 series and Mi-24 helicopters next year.
“The Ansat-U is a maneuverable and fast helicopter. Sensitive controls and an intuitive electronic display helped our students to master the aircraft in a short period of time. In November, we expect the delivery of another six Ansat-U helicopters to the Air Force Training Center. 57 students are expected to complete training on the Ansat-U helicopter next year, and about 300 students – in 2016,” Air Force Lt. Col. Sergey Spiridonov stated.
