Russia Delivers 2 Ka-32 helicopters purchased by Jiangsu Baoli
Russian Helicopters holding has delivered two Kamov Ka-32A11BC helicopters to China's Jiangsu Baoli Aviation Equipment Investment, the manufacturer said Tuesday in a statement.
According to the document, the Russian Helicopters and Jiangsu Baoli Aviation Equipment Investment signed an agreement on the delivery of four Ka-32A11BC helicopters in November 2015, with the first two already shipped to the client and the other two to be delivered this year.
"The Russian Helicopters holding (part of the Rostec state corporation) has finished the delivery of the first batch of the Ka-32A11BC multirole helicopters [to China]," the statement read.
The statement also said that the aircraft of this type have been used in China for several years and have proven extremely efficient in fighting fires in the cities with primarily high-density housing, where other helicopters have trouble accessing high-rise buildings.
The Russian company has delivered 11 Ka-32A11BC helicopters to various Chinese companies and is considering opening service centers in China.
The helicopters of the Ka-32 series are used in Spain, Portugal, Colombia, Switzerland, Canada and other countries.
