Andrey Martirosov, CEO.
With a total fleet of 190 helicopters, UTair Aviation is the largest private
operator in Russia, and one of the biggest in the world. But we have
no aircraft under 12 metric tons, which is a handicap given the
increase in our oil & gas operations. We opted for the mid-range
EC175 because we are familiar with Eurocopter’s expertise. We will
operate our aircraft in very tough conditions, from –40°C to +40°C,
and in a wide variety of configurations - from high-density transport to
VIP or VVIP.
