Sarang helicopter team to perform at MAKS air show in Russia
The air show is a biennial fixture and this year's edition is taking place at Zhukovsky airport from July 20 to 25. ''This is the first occasion when the Sarang team is performing its four helicopter aerobatics display in Russia, with its 'Made in India' 'Dhruv' Advanced Light Helicopters (ALH),'' the defence ministry said.
These helicopters, manufactured by state-owned aerospace giant Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, are equipped with state-of-the-art avionics, which makes them extremely suitable for military aviation, it said.
Apart from aerobatics displays at national and international venues, the team has also taken part in numerous humanitarian assistance and disaster relief missions, the ministry said.
