Design and development

The manufacturer plans to provide the Mi-38 with a new Tranzas "glass cockpit" avionics system, modified main rotor blades.[1] The helicopter is offered with a choice of either Klimov TV7-117V or Pratt & Whitney Canada PW127/TS turboshaft engines. As of July 2011, only two airframes have been produced for testing, a third prototype being assembled at the Kazan Helicopter Plant. The production is expected to begin in 2013.[1]

The second prototype, powered by the PW127TS, made its first flight in December 2010.[3]
