Russian Helicopters has given an international air show debut to its Mil Mi-38, showing the heavy-twin equipped with a VIP cabin.
Featuring a maximum take-off weight of 15.6t and a 5t payload, the rotorcraft is powered by a pair of Klimov TV7-117V engines. These are located aft of the cabin, helping to reduce noise for passengers, the company says.
Earlier this year, Russian Helicopters conducted testing of the Mi-38 in hot and high conditions, confirming its ability to operate at altitudes up to 9,800ft and in temperatures up to 45°C (113°F).
Initial deliveries to its Russian government customer are expected this year.
