Research and Development

Russian Helicopters boasts very strong R&D capabilities. The holding includes the National Helicopter Center 'Mil and Kamov', which unites two rotorcraft-designing schools, whose authority is recognized throughout the world. The history of two design bureaus is closely intertwined with the lives of the two men after whom they were named, Mikhail Mil and Nikolai Kamov, who are universally considered the founding fathers of Russia’s helicopter industry. Nikolai Kamov, who has been credited with coining the Russian word for helicopter, "vertolyot", was actively involved in design and development of an autogyro, a predecessor of a helicopter, in the 1920s. Under the guidance of Mikhail Mil the first Russian series produced helicopter was created.
