Kazan Helicopters in 2007 he joined the group "Russian Helicopters".
The company today owns the infrastructure characteristic of serial production of machine-building, has upgraded technological and industrial base, allowing for the production and repair of helicopters: Kazan Helicopters manufactures the entire construction cycle of helicopters from design to serial production of its warranty support.
Mi-17 - multipurpose medium helicopters, is an improved version of the Mi-8. Currently it produced more than eleven thousand helicopters of this type. Currently, Kazan Helicopters is the mass production of the three main variations:
Mi-172 - Passenger variation is intended to carry passengers. Produced special VIP-variation;

According to the problems of technical re-equipment of the plant continues its high-performance modern equipment, introduces standardized procedures and processes. Development of the industrial base is directed at reducing costs and thus to decrease the cost of production, increase in production, which is produced. Thus the task of increasing the reliability and quality of the helicopters, increasing the range of helicopters on size and available options.
Experimental Design Bureau and the research work of the enterprise
The company as a developer plans to build targeted variations and upgrade versions of the helicopter ANSAT; works microlight helicopters weighing up to six tons, two and a half tons. Together with the Joint Stock Company "Moscow Helicopter Plant Mil ML "Modernization is carried out mass-produced helicopter Mi-8 / 17 and preliminary preparation for mass production of the Mi-38. Research and scientific activities of the company focused on improving the economic impact of production and technological level of the plant for development of products that will be competitive. Every year in inventive and innovative activities involved up to two hundred people. Of the three hundred proposals submitted by them introduced into the life of about thirty patents for industrial designs, inventions, utility models, and about two hundred and fifty innovations.
