First Marine WIG for Foreign Customer is Under Construction
“Arctic Trade and Transport Company – Invest” has started production of the first marine WIG for foreign customer, CEO Ruben Nagapetyan said to “Interfax-AVN”.
“The company began manufacturing the first prototype of the marine 30-seat WIG within the development work for a foreign customer,” R. Nagapetyan said.
He said that the construction of WIG prototype will be completed by the end of this year, and its trial will begin in early 2016.
“Unfinished WIG refers to the “A” category, so it effectuates flights at a low altitude above the water level. At the same time WIG will have an element of “B” category – it can overfly obstacles, rising to a height of 150 m,” R. Nagapetyan said.
