Today about 200 helicopters built at our facilities are operated by private companies and state agencies in Kazakhstan. The civilian helicopter fleet here is growing rapidly, and we are committed to meeting in full our Kazakh partners’ requirements for the latest helicopters.

The city of Almaty boasts a population of 1.5 million, and is the rapidly growing southern capital of the Republic of Kazakhstan. We pay significant attention to issues related to equipping the Rescue Service with the latest technology, specialist technology and equipment,” said Almaty’s Akim (head of a local government) Akhmetzhan Esimov. “We hope that the Mi-8AMT will successfully carry out operations to prevent emergencies, emergency response operations, and to offer first aid to residents of and visitors to the capital. There are plans to further expand the Rescue Service’s helicopter fleet which will be used during events such as the Worldwide Youth Universiade in 2017, and in construction work on the Kok Zhaylau world-class ski resort.

Almaty City Rescue Service's Mi-8AMT helicopter was built at Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (a Russian Helicopters company), under a contract concluded in 2013. The customer's specific requirements were taken into account in producing it. It was fitted with additional equipment enabling it to carry out search and rescue operations and transport cargo and passengers. Its search and rescue function is supported by the LPG-150M winch and external sling, which has a hydraulic weighing system. Additional external fuel tanks can be fitted, increasing the helicopter's range to 1,065 km. The improved cabin can comfortably seat up to 12 people. The helicopter is distinguished by its low vibration and noise. It is fitted with the latest navigation and radio communications equipment, ensuring it can operate safely in a wide range of different conditions.This model of helicopter may also prove to be in demand in other states and by commercial helicopter operators in Kazakhstan and Russia.

All the main models of helicopter produced by Russian Helicopters are operated in Kazakhstan: Mi-8/17 series military-transport and search and rescue helicopters, Ka-32A11BC multirole helicopters with a coaxial main rotor system,Mi-24V attack helicopter and the super-heavy Mi-26(T) transport helicopter. Kazakhstan’s helicopter operators have expressed significant interest in Russian Helicopters’ up and coming developments: the medium multirole Mi-171A2 and the Mi-38 passenger transport helicopter.
