QUITOL, March 28. /TASS/. Russian Helicopters holding is ready to repair Croatian Mi-171Sh transport helicopters in Russia or in Europe to prevent interference of uncertificated companies with this process, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Russian helicopters producer Igor Chechikov told TASS on Monday.
Croatian defense forces currently have ten Mi-171Sh helicopters in service and first three choppers are scheduled for repair this year, he said.
"Considering that helicopters are new, documentation on them were not transferred anywhere and nobody has mastered the repair, we believe the issue is fairly serious," Chechikov said.
Either Russian Helicopters’ plants should perform the repair "or we are ready to consider repair options in the territory of Croatia or at a repair facility in Europe but definitely with participation of our specialists," he added.
Not a single foreign company, including those located in Ukraine, is certified for Mi-171Sh repair, Chechikov said.
