Turbomeca unveils for the first time the Ardiden 3G engine at MAKS Air Show
Turbomeca (Safran) unveiled for the first time the Ardiden 3G engine installed on a prototype of the Russian helicopter Kamov 62, at the MAKS air show. The maiden flight is scheduled for the next few weeks. The Colombian operator Vertical de Aviacion ordered five Kamov 62 helicopters on the opening day of the air show. Safran / Turbomeca welcomes this new international contract which confirms the success of the strategic partnership set up between Safran and the Russian high-tech industry. This signature follows that of the Brazilian operator Atlas Taxi Aero for 14 aircraft which took place last December. This new contract confirms the relevance of the strategic choices made by Safran / Turbomeca and strengthens the order book for the new generation engines of the Ardiden family.
