At EDEX company's specialists will continue the work that started just a couple of weeks ago at the Dubai Airshow, where Mi-28NE and Ka-52 attack helicopters were first presented and aroused strong interest. At the same time, the holding company is interested in further expanding its civil cooperation, considering recent international premieres of Ka-226T Climber and Ansat Aurus as a pillar for enlarging order portfolio in the region.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Back in October 2018, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi assessed Ka-52 Alligator capabilities during a visit to an Egyptian air force base. Rotorcraft can provide target reconnaissance, assignment, and hardware target destination. Ka-52 is equipped with devices to reduce visibility, has electronic protection and active anti-combat systems. Advanced flight characteristics – achieved in part thanks to its coaxial rotors – make the helicopter highly manoeuvrable in limited space and thus able to adopt an advantageous attack position. The Ka-52 Alligator offers a high degree of protection to its crew, has advanced automated systems for ease of piloting, and is easy to service and maintain on the ground. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Mi-35P has excellent flight characteristics and can be effectively used in high temperature and altitude conditions. It has a design that ensures low acoustic visibility and increased combat survivability, which also reduces maintenance complexity. The helicopter is equipped with an upgraded observation and sighting system with a 3rd generation matrix long-wave thermal imager, a high-resolution colour TV camera and a laser rangefinder. This rotorcraft also has state-of-the-art generation 3+ night vision goggles and a set of external and internal lighting equipment adapted to these goggles’ applications. Adding to that, the rotorcraft received a new digital piloting complex with improved controllability, which simplified an automated piloting process.</span></span></p> </div> <div> <div>Posted date</div> <div><time datetime="2021-11-25T12:00:00Z">Thu, 25/11/2021 - 12:00</time> </div> </div> <div> <div>First paragraph</div> <div><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Russian Helicopters will present a wide range of military and civil helicopters at the international defence exhibition EDEX-2021.</span></span></p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Regions</div> <div> <div><a href="/middle-east-and-north-africa" hreflang="en">Middle East and North Africa</a></div> <div><a href="/africa" hreflang="en">Africa</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Other topics</div> <div> <div><a href="/defence" hreflang="en">Defence</a></div> <div><a href="/events" hreflang="en">Events</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Rate</div> <div><form class="fivestar-form-2" id="vote--2" data-drupal-selector="fivestar-form-2" action="/taxonomy/term/17/feed" method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8"> <div class="clearfix fivestar-average-text fivestar-average-stars fivestar-form-item fivestar-basic"><div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-fivestar form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-select form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <select class="vote form-select" data-drupal-selector="edit-vote" aria-describedby="edit-vote--4--description" id="edit-vote--4" name="vote"><option value="-">Select rating</option><option value="20">Give it 1/5</option><option value="40">Give it 2/5</option><option value="60">Give it 3/5</option><option value="80">Give it 4/5</option><option value="100">Give it 5/5</option><option value="0">Cancel rating</option></select> <div id="edit-vote--4--description" class="description"> <div class="fivestar-summary fivestar-summary-average-count"><span class="empty">No votes yet</span></div> </div> </div> </div> </div><input style="display:none" data-drupal-selector="edit-submit" type="submit" id="edit-submit--2" name="op" value="Rate" class="button js-form-submit form-submit" /> <input autocomplete="off" data-drupal-selector="form-vlolmpbuk1vtzvdex0wb6hg4kowp-jm0eptgfxlmil4" type="hidden" name="form_build_id" value="form-vlolmPBUK1vtzVDeX0wB6Hg4KowP-jm0ePtgfXlmIl4" /> <input data-drupal-selector="edit-fivestar-form-2" type="hidden" name="form_id" value="fivestar_form_2" /> </form> </div> </div> <div> <div>Add to home page</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Article main topic</div> <div><a href="/events" hreflang="en">Events</a></div> </div> <div> <div>Redirected</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Moved to features</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Lead image:</div> <div> <img property="schema:image" src="/sites/aerospace/times/files/2021-11/A07W7116.JPG" width="5184" height="3456" alt="" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <div> <div>New batch</div> <div>Off</div> </div> Thu, 25 Nov 2021 15:28:34 +0000 eNethersole 64098 at http://www.timesaerospace.aero UK and Qatar unveil joint Hawk Squadron http://www.timesaerospace.aero/news/defence/uk-and-qatar-unveil-joint-hawk-squadron <div property="schema:text"><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">The new Joint Squadron - to be known as ‘11 Squadron (Qatar)’ - builds on years of close partnership between the Royal Air Force and the Qatari Emiri Air Force (QEAF).</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">The Squadron will deliver advanced and high-speed jet training to QEAF and RAF pilots in the new Hawks.

The Airshow was bigger than the pre-pandemic 2019 edition in terms of visitor numbers and deals announced. It was also a significant milestone for the defence and space sectors which saw a range of deals and agreements declared. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Some of the notable deals which took place during the event included Airbus who announced orders and commitments totalling 408 aircraft (269 firm orders and 139 commitments). The agreements covered the full range of commercial aircraft families, including a first commitment for the A350F freighter derivative. Airbus launched its latest global market forecast outlining progressively shifting demand from fleet growth to accelerated retirement of older, less fuel-efficient aircraft resulting in a need for some 39,000 new-build passenger and freighter aircraft. Of these,15,250 aircraft (around 40%) are for replacements.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">On the opening day of the show alone, Indigo Partners portfolio airlines placed a firm order for 255 A321neo Family aircraft, including 29 XLR.

The formation of the subsidiary is part of Tawazun’s efforts to attract and promote long-term partnerships with major companies in the defence, aviation and aerospace sector. Tawazun also signed a Euro 216.9 million deal with Aeroter to purchase 100 VRT500 helicopters.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Dubai Airshow and the UAE Space Agency signed a MoU on the second day of the event.

The event has been a real testament to the resilience, robustness and adaptability of the aviation and aerospace industries to come back with such strength after the pandemic. We have seen an industry transition with significant levels of innovation, technological advancement and digital transformation right across the show with many exhibitors displaying brand new solutions.
