Aviacon is widely known in the professional community of helicopter operators , MRO companies and manufacturers as a reliable provider of cost-effective solutions for the delivery and redeployment of their rotorcraft.


It has become the first choice IL-76 carrier to transport medium utility helicopters operating by the helicopter companies or manufacturers  from the former USSR (MI-8/17, Ansat, Kamov’s models).


Company’s  loadmasters obtained proven experience in loading/offloading of the Bell models (-208 / 215 / 412), Eurocopter AS350 (Squirrel), SA 341 (Gazelle), Westland Lynx, SA 330 (Puma ), AS 532 (Cougar), AS332 (Super Puma) and other models of rotorcraft of the same class on/from IL-76 cargo deck.


In 2012 we repatriated some support equipment used by Orbital Science Corp from the russian launch pad in Baikonur  to Hamilton (Canada) with further transit to the USA.


Among the records of our orderbook there were also several charters  to the launch pad in Blagoveshchensk and Plesetsk with satellite equipment.
