The assembled helicopter is being tested at the plant.

"Under the plan, the first of the three helicopters will be delivered to Lithuania in the first half of 2015," the ministry told BNS on Monday.

The assembly of the remaining two helicopters has also been started already and they should be delivered by the end of the next year.
