MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. Russian Helicopters will perform repair for thirty Indian Mi-17-1B multirole helicopters at its Novosibirsk repair site during 18 months, press service of the holding said on Thursday.

"30 India’s Mi-17-1B helicopters will be repaired at facilities of Novosibirsk aircraft repair plant by mid-2018," the press service said citing Deputy Chief Executive Officer Igor Chechikov.

The first lot of five Mi-17-1B aircraft already undergoes overhaul at the plant. It is scheduled for completion in June-July 2017 and helicopters will be turned over to India after that. Six lots of helicopters will be dispatched for repair in total, with five helicopters in each lot.

Indian inspectors arrived at the plant in late February to check Mi-17-1B repair quality, the press service said. "Indian specialists will work until early March. They will make conclusions on the quality of repair performed according to inspection findings," Russian Helicopters reported.
