Russian Helicopters selects Goodrich to power Mi-34C1

US aerospace manufacturer Goodrich has been selected by Russian Helicopters to provide the main rotor actuator and hydraulic power supply for its upgraded Mi-34C1 light helicopter.

The agreement includes research and development, original equipment supply and aftermarket support for both units.

Prototypes for flight tests have already been produced by Goodrich’s Actuation Systems business, with entry into service planned for late 2012.
