“The first delivery of the Ka-32A11BC rescue helicopters to EMERCOM Kazakhstan marks a new and important phase in cooperation between the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation in the delivery of special-use helicopters,” said Dmitry Petrov, CEO of Russian Helicopters. “The development of partnerships with Kazakhstan state agencies has long been one of the top priorities of our company in Central Asia, and we are prepared to increase helicopter deliveries. In addition to the Ka-32A11BC, Russian Helicopters is offering EMERCOM Kazakhstan the new light utility helicopter Ka-226T with a medical module which, considering the climatic characteristics of the region, ideally suits rescue and emergency medical operations of any degree of complexity.”
