It's curtains for the Ansat as training begins
The Omsk Flight Technical College of Civil Aviation, named after A.V. Lyapidevsky, will host the first Ansats to train civilian pilots from scratch, following approval from the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency.
Third horizon and curtain installations have been approved.

Russian Helicopters' helicopter plant in Kazan has received approval from the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency to change the standard design of the Ansat helicopter, allowing civilian pilots to be trained on the type from scratch. The first two Ansats will go into operation at the Omsk Flight Technical College of Civil Aviation named after A.V. Lyapidevsky.

The Russian aviation authorities certified the installation of the third horizon and curtains on an Ansat helicopter to simulate instrument flight. Curtains are used for training purposes to test the actions of cadets in conditions of poor visibility, when they need to navigate only according to device readings.

The modification of the Ansat was carried out on the initiative of the Federal Air Transport Agency as a pilot project for the operation of the first two helicopters of this type at the Omsk Flight Technical College of Civil Aviation, a branch of the Ulyanovsk Institute of Civil Aviation, part of the Federal Air Transport Agency. In the future, the purchase of at least 10 Ansats is planned for the school.

This is the first time Ansat helicopters will be used for training helicopter pilots in civil aviation.
