Department of transportation and communication of the Khanty-Mansijsk autonomous district has studied the projects of the off-airfield aircrafts "Bella" and "Fialka".

The technical characteristics of the submitted projects reflect the requirements of the Northern territories. The prospects of the development and promotion of these particular aircrafts will bring some positive results in the development of the Russian aviation nation-wide. Usage of these particular planes within the Khanty-Mansijsk autonomous district may open great possibilities in development of cargo carriers, supplying the remote areas with food products, construction materials, servicing oil and gas facilities, timber industry, forest protection, development of the North Urals region.

At the same time operational weather conditions and technical performance of these aircrafts should be taken under consideration which might substantially reduce its use in scheduled passenger air services.
