Heli-Drive North West, performing work in the interests of the National Air Ambulance Service (NSSA), has taken delivery of three Ansat rotorcraft with medical interiors from Russian Helicopters, courtesy of the State Transport Leasing Company. The machines are designed to perform tasks within the framework of Russia's national air ambulance development programme and will go to the Leningrad region. The delivered Ansats are equipped with medical interiors that allow medical crews to monitor the patient's condition and, if necessary, carry out intensive therapy.

Ansats are already deployed in rescue services, making regular medevac flights in different regions of Russia. Ansat medical helicopters equipped with ventilators are taking an active part in the fight against COVID-19 throughout the country. To simplify the transportation of patients with coronavirus infection, The Federal Air Transport Agency granted approval in May 2020 for the Ansat to be equipped with patient isolation units. In the aeromedical version, the helicopter cabin has space for transporting one patient and two seats for accompanying doctors.

The Heli-Drive North West helicopter centre specialises in performing a range of aviation work, as well as servicing, hangaring, aviation fuel supply and aircraft sales. Since 2014, the first private regional air ambulance service in Russia has been operated by Heli-Drive.
