Hello, I am new to this forum. My name is Brent and I live in Canada.

I am interested in establishing contact with anyone who can help me understand the extent of scheduled helicopter airline services that Aeroflot used to operate. I have been researching the history of scheduled helicopter airlines throughout the world for the past decade and have confirmed close to 150 such airlines in just about every corner of the world. Except for less than 20, most of these airlines are no longer operating.

For the purposes of my research, I have defined a scheduled helicopter airline as: "A regularly operated commercial air passenger service utilizing rotorcraft which serves (or has served) at least two different locations and is (or was) available to the public." This excludes the vast majority of common helicopter operations which are of course non-scheduled and/or not available to the general public.

I have made some limited progress researching current Russian helicopter airlines but have had a very difficult time finding sources of information on Aeroflot's Soviet-era helicopter airline locations, routes, history and other details. I am aware that Aeroflot previously operated many (even hundreds) of scheduled helicopter airline routes but really only have information on less than ten such operations and even that information is very limited.

If you are able to help with anything related to this topic, I would be grateful to hear from you and will endeavor to reciprocate with information or photos that I may be able to provide regarding your own area of aviation-related interest.

Thanks Pit. With the help of Google Translate, I think I can get some useful information from that thread.
