On 19 August, Ukrainian Motor Sich, one of the largest manufacturers of engines for airplanes and helicopters worldwide based in Zaporizhia, Southern Ukraine, which also operates Motor Sich Airlines, showed off its first helicopter. More importantly, this is also the first helicopter produced in Ukraine. It has a symbolic name “Nadiya” (from Ukrainian “hope”), a press release on the website of the Zaporizhia State Administration said. The presentation took place at the Mokra airfield in Zaporizhia.
The helicopter was presented by the president of Motor Sich Vyacheslav Boguslayev.
