But in order to become cutting edge offshore helicopter support providers, Russian operators need to modernize their fleets, as the oil fields are further and further away. There is a great need for larger and more powerful helicopters capable of providing long-haul services all year long.
To remain competitive, Russian operators need to add new helicopters to their current aging Mil fleets to be able to confront a greater variety of weather conditions and over longer periods of time. Their success also lies in innovations, in developing new technologies for localization in Polar areas, fighting against icing conditions, and landing under poor visibility, for example. Pilot training also needs to be adapted to these harsher conditions as often, helicopters are damaged by poor pilot skills.
