German Type Certificate
At the end of October 2018, the Deutsche Ultraleichtflugverband e.V. (German Ultralight Aviation Association DULV) granted RS Helikopter GmbH the Type Certificate for the coaxial helicopter RotorSchmiede VA115 ultralight.
First Registration in Russia
RS Helikopter GmbH is pleased about the first approval of a helicopter of the type RotorSchmiede VA115 ultralight for the very interesting Russian market.
On 15.11.2019 RS Helikopter GmbH, with the help of its Russian sales partner Aviazapchast, received the first individual approval of its coaxial helicopter type RotorSchmiede VA115 ultralight from the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation. The final certification flight was carried out on 25.11.2019 in Moscow at an icy -10°C. All persons present were enthusiastic about the functional efficiency and the good-natured flight characteristics of the single-seater helicopter with coaxial rotor system.
For the time being, the RotorSchmiede VA115 ultralight will be certified as a single unit in Russia on the basis of local regulations. The effort for the customer is very low, as the certification is supported by us and our Moscow-based partner on site.
