Rotary Aircraft

Benefits of using helicopters are very obvious. Transport helicopters are used in places where the use of conventional aircraft is impossible. The landing possibilities of helicopter are almost unlimited. Transport helicopters are helicopters used by militaries with the primary purpose of transporting personnel (troops) and cargo. The benefit of using helicopters is that personnel and cargo can be moved to and from locations without requiring a runway for takeoffs and landings. Cargo is carried either internally, or externally by sling load where the load is suspended from an attachment point underneath the aircraft. Personnel are primarily loaded and unloaded while the helicopter is on the ground. However, when the terrain restricts even helicopters from landing, personnel may also be picked up and dropped off using specialized devices, such as rescue hoists or special rope lines, while the aircraft hovers overhead.

MIL Mi-26 helicopter

The Mi-26 is a Soviet/Russian heavy transport helicopter. In service with civilian and military operators, it is the largest and most powerful helicopter ever to have gone into production.

MIL Mi-8MTV (MI-17-1V) helicopter

Mi-17-1V is the development of multi-purpose helicopter Mi-17 and the main improvement is improvement is a new engine – now the helicopter has two gas-turbine engines TV3-117VM with capacity up to 1900 hp (in case of failure of one engine, the second can be used with the power of 2200 hp) and auxiliary power unit AI-9V. One or two extra fuel tanks can be installed in the cargo compartment which considerably increases the practical range of the helicopter. Also new avionics is settled, allowing flying in the daytime and at night.

MIL Mi-8T helicopter

The Mi-8 Transport Helicopter is the most massively produced helicopter in the world. In Soviet Union there were developed more than 50 various modifications of this helicopter and built approximately 12 000 helicopters including 3 600 built for export. These helicopters are still built at Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant, Kazan Helicopter Plant and Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant. The Mi-8 Transport Helicopters took part in a great number of military conflicts all around the world including Afghanistan and both Chechnya wars. At the moment Mi-8 with it's various modifications are operational in over 50 countries of the world including some NATO countries.

Fixed Wing

The urgent need appeared in the speed gas-turbine aircraft for local lines and for military needs. There existed no serial engines for that type aircraft and the assignments were set for the O.K. Antonov Design Bureau (airframe) and the A.T. Ivtchenko Design Bureau (engine). The Irkutsk factory manufactured military transport version with a cargo door in the tail fuselage, overhead-track hoist and airdrop equipment. The nose strut is a pedal-controlled unit that significantly improves the aircraft mobility on the ground. The landing gear wheels with low-pressure tires allow landing soaked unpaved aerodromes.

We know aircraft capabilities, costing structures, operational characteristics and worldwide availabilities. Our specialist presence on loading when required moment to assist client and aircraft operator in all situations.

ANTONOV an-12 airplane

The first prototype flew in December 1957. Over 900 had been built, in both military and civilian versions, before production finally ended in 1973. The An-12BP entered Soviet military service in 1959. In terms of configuration, size and capability, the aircraft is similar to the United States-built Lockheed C-130 Hercules. Military Soviet and former-Soviet examples have a defensive tail gun turret.

ANTONOV an-74 airplane

The Antonov An-72 (NATO reporting name 'Coaler') is a transport aircraft developed by Antonov in the former Soviet Union. It was designed as a STOL transport and intended as a replacement for the Antonov An-26, but variants have found success as commercial freighters. The An-72 gets its nickname, Cheburashka, from the large engine intake ducts, which resemble the oversized ears of the popular Soviet animated creature with the same name.

Ilyushin IL-76-TD airplane

The Ilyushin Il-76 (NATO reporting name: Candid) is a multi-purpose four-engined strategic airlifter designed by Ilyushin design bureau. It was first planned as a commercial freighter in 1967. Intended as a replacement for the Antonov An-12, the Il-76 was designed for delivering heavy machinery to remote, poorly-serviced areas of the USSR. Military versions of the Il-76 have seen widespread use in Europe, Asia and Africa, including use as an airborne refueling tanker or as a command center.

Ilyushin IL-18 airplane

The Ilyushin Il-18 (NATO reporting name: Coot) is a large turboprop airliner that became one of the best known Soviet aircraft of its era as well as one of the most popular and durable, having first flown in 1957 and still being in civilian use 55 years later. The Il-18 was one of the world's principal airliners for several decades and was widely exported. Due to the aircraft's airframe durability, many achieved over 45,000 flight hours. The Il-18's successor was the long range Il-62 jet airliner.

ANTONOV AN-32 airplane

The Ilyushin AN-32 (NATO reporting name: Cline) is a twin-engined turboprop military transport aircraft.

The AN-32 has excellent takeoff characteristics under tropical and mountainous (high-altitude) conditions, including hot climates (up to + 55°C) and from the mountain airfields (up to 4,500 m height) where hot or thin air hampers the powerplant's capability. With this capability, the aircraft is suited to be a multipurpose aircraft with medium tactical military transport roles as well as being used in civil commercial flying.

Operating as a cargo transport over the short and medium range air routes, the An-32 is able to air-drop cargo platforms on pallets. The aircraft has also been used as a passenger-only aircraft, ambulance variant, firefighter and for sky-diving or paratroop roles.
