For the manufacturer’s third Heli-Expo visit, Russian Helicopters is showcasing the Mi-8/17, the coaxial Ka-32A11BC, the light Mi-34C1, and the multi-role Ka-226T. Russian Helicopters’ newest variant, the light Mi-34C1—which took its first public flight during MAKS 2011 in Moscow—is making its first appearance at Heli-Expo.
