    L-39 is a decent aircraft but it is time to get with the modern age. We are getting Yak-130 in the hundreds. How many can they afford?

    Ukraine intends to make helicopters

    Ukraine plans to master the manufacture of helicopters

    KIEV, May 4. (ARMS-TASS). Ukraine intends to master the production of helicopters. ITAR-TASS news agency, told reporters the First Vice-Premier, Minister of Economic Development and Trade, Andrei Klyuyev.

    "The domestic industry is ready to ensure our needs are partially upgraded helicopters, extending their service life by 7-10 years. During this time it is necessary to design a new domestic helicopter," - said Klyuyev.

    "We have made engines for almost all types of helicopters, which exist in the world. We have a company that can do and the body, and the majority of components and assemblies for the new Ukrainian helicopters. So we just have the medium term to run their production", - First Vice-Premier.

    According to him, to date fleet of helicopters in the Ukraine quite outdated and needs updating. The share of cars that run up to 10 years does not exceed 15 percent. Age of the majority of helicopters over 20 years, said First Deputy Prime Minister.

    According to him, if in the early 90's there were about 500 civil helicopters for today registered a little more than two hundred (excluding cars Defense).

    First vice-premier said that he had instructed the Agency to manage state corporate rights in conjunction with the Defense Ministry to work out the optimum technological production model helicopters, including the use of public-private partnership with the Motor Sich "and other enterprises.

    Sad really.

    A bit of a wasted effort considering there is no shortage of modern helos of all shapes and sizes.

    I would think a more sensible use of their money and resources would be to make a 3/4 size An-124 with a payload of 90-100 tons and two instead of four engines.

    It would be an ideal competitor to C-17s and there is no other competition in that payload class so unless they screw the design up and make it gold plated they should sell very well.

    Even 150 million per aircraft would be a fraction of the cost of the C-17... they could put Rolls Royce engines on it and make it all NATO standard and put French avionics in it so that the Europeans will be keen to buy it too.

    Instead they are making a new Mi-8... a much greater risk.

    Of course the Russians might revive the Il-106 which would certainly be competition, but with Euro engines and avionics the Ukrainian plane would be more palatable to most EU countries, though the French might consider the Il-106 favourably.

    I believe Canada offered them F-18's free but they couldn't afford to operate them.

    Not exactly Ukrainian Air Force, but close enough.

    "The aircraft will be permanently stationed in the squadron of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine in the city of Nizhyn, Chernihiv region. That reported by ukrainian news website tviy.kiev.ua.

    The State Emergency Service of Ukraine (SESU) received a military transport aircraft An-26, equipped with new Austrian medical equipment, including intensive care units to perform life-saving functions, a QHA journalist reports. In 2016, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine enlarged the SESU’s budget by UAH 62 million, which allowed financing the aircraft modernization. The advanced AN-26 was presented to the representatives of the SESU on the territory of the state enterprise Plant 410 CA.



    “The repair works included complete overhaul of all components and assemblies of the aircraft, installation of new navigational equipment, enabling it to fly over the territory of Ukraine, as well as equipment preventing a collision with other aircraft. It has also a modern Austrian medical equipment that meets all international standards and allows to maintain the health of the wounded and victims being evacuated by this plane,” Mykola Chechetkin, Head of the State Emergency Service, said during the presentation ceremony.

    He also noted that the plane will soon be supplied to the squadron to perform the relevant tasks. The AN-26 aircraft is capable of transporting the victims to a distance of 2000 km without landing. It is equipped with 6 sanitary stretchers for the wounded and 6 chairs for medical personnel. It has also the equipment for resuscitation actions: EVL devices, monitor, defibrillator, respirators and syringe pumps for infusion therapy.



    In addition, the developers have installed two modules of intensive care for severely wounded. The upgraded AN-26 can transport 9 lying and 14 seating wounded with medical staff."
