Russian Helicopters is showcasing the Ansat, which it classifies as a light utility helicopter, this week at the Paris Air Show. FBW control system failure was suspected to be the cause of the crash of an early-production Ansat in the Republic of Korea RoK in July while on a low-level patrol over hilly terrain. Teething problems with the four-channel system have been solved.
Today, the defense ministry is happy with the Ansat-U's performance. Numerous technical improvements introduced in the past three years have made the Ansat reliable in operation, with a fleet average utilization now exceeding hours a year per airframe. Under that deal, Russian Helicopters has to deliver 45 Ansats to NSMA in , in addition to 20 such rotorcraft to other local and foreign customers.
Earlier, the manufacturer entered an agreement with the State Transport Leasing Corp. If consummated, this deal should restore confidence in the Ansat among South Koreans after their bitter experience with early-production examples. A year later, it was followed by a larger order from China Association of Emergency Medicine, for 20 rotorcraft. The Kremlin has already signaled its readiness to accept a draft, which, among other things, contains a mechanism for validation of national certificates.
When in place, this mechanism will open the way for Chinese certification of the Ansat ahead of its placement with commercial operators in the country. Special attention has been paid to perfecting the load-bearing structure, a process managed by a special commission on weight. Whenever possible, metallic elements in skin, nacelles, and hatches were replaced with those made of composite materials. Vibration and noise are reduced through a new pendulum assembly on the main rotor mast, as well as an active vibration control system AVCS.
A new fairing on the top of the rotor mast further reduces drag. Apart from a performance boost, these can decrease the share of Western components to a level permitting export to those countries that prefer completely Russian equipment. According to a recent market forecast for civilian equipment, Russian Helicopters expects the annual market for turbine helicopters in the global marketplace to reach by The manufacturer wants to capture a good portion of that market.
