ZHUHAI, November 11. /TASS/. First consignment of military transport helicopters of the Mi-171Sh family will be delivered to Peru before the end of this year, Alexander Mikheyev, the Director General of the Vertolyoty Rossii (Russian Helicopters) holding company told TASS on the sidelines of the 10th Airshow China’2014 international aerospace show in Zhuhai.
“As part of a contract with Rosoboronexport (Russian state weaponry exporting company - TASS) we’re expected to deliver Mi-171Sh military transport helicopters to Peru,” he said. “The first consignment of four helicopters will be delivered to the (Peruvian) customer before the end of this year.”
“Rosobornexport is performing this contract as agreed upon with the customer,” Mikheyev said.
The government of Peru and Rosoboronexport signed an agreement on supplies of twenty-four helicopters of the Mi-171Sh family to Peru last December.
The other twenty aircraft will be handed to Peru in 2015 and they will be entered in the tables of equipment of the Peruvian Air Force. A regional center for the maintenance and servicing of Russian helicopters will be set up in Peru by 2015.
At present, the Peruvian Air force has eleven Mi-8/17/171 military transport helicopters and sixteen Mi-24/25/35 attack helicopters. The Army aviation has twenty Mi-8/17/171 helicopters and one AW109 manufactured by the Anglo-Italian company AgustaWestland.
