Russian Helicopters Catch International Attention at Dubai Airshow 2023
"The Russian industry is the only one that still produces coaxial helicopters, and at the exhibition the helicopter is exclusive. That is why we have already had visitors from various countries: the US, UK, Australia, Mozambique – just now guests have come up, looked, were interested in the helicopter live," Andrianov stated, referring to the Ka-32A11M.
"Pilots of the F-35 aircraft came [...] The guys were interested in the helicopters, interested in the flight characteristics. Surprisingly, they were even able to name some countries in which this helicopter flies. They were pilots too, and they mostly asked questions: how easy the coaxial scheme is to control in the heat and in the high mountains how the helicopter behaves," he added.
