The First Ever Helicopter World Cup has kicked off in Russia this year at Konokavo Aerodrome in Russia’s Tver Region. Most of the Pilots performed the World Cup in Robinson R44’s as well as the MI-2 Helicopter. The Helicopter World Cup is organized under the patronage of the FAI (Fédération Aéronautique Internationale), the World Air Sports Federation. This was a two day event where 15 crews took part from countries including Belarus, Russia, Ukraine and Austria. The World Cup consisted of two events, Slalom Challenge as well as Freight Handling as can be seen in the video. Hopefully this becomes a larger and larger event as years go by. Only the future will tell!
