Russian helicopter service provider Uralhelicom has added a Robinson R66 to its roster. The aircraft will primarily be used for demonstration flights and will have some charter availability. Uralhelicom is a dealer and service centre for R44 and R66 rotorcraft, as well as a service centre for the Airbus Helicopters H120, H125, H130 and H145. It performs flights on all of these types.
“Offering R66 helicopters has enabled us to increase our customer base,” says public relations manager Maya Malysheva. “Within the last 12 months, our company has been approved as a Rolls Royce service centre for the RR300 engine, and we have also become dealers for the Genesys HeliSAS autopilot system in Russia.”
