MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Aviation design and manufacturers Russian Helicopters will open servicing centers to form an international network, the company announced on Tuesday, joining exhibitors at a Moscow civil aviation show.
"In 2017, we plan to open a servicing center for Mi-8/17 helicopters in Egypt; in 2016, a Mi-35M servicing centre in Brazil and a center for Mi-171SH in Peru," a statement said. "In 2018, we plan to complete reequipping the servicing centre for Mi-17V-5 in India," it added.
"Today, around 8,700 Russian-made helicopters operate in more than 100 countries. One of the main priorities for the company is to provide reliable and affordable servicing support to our clients," said servicing operations deputy chief Yury Borisov.
"Last year, five aircraft repair plants in Russian regions were transferred from the Ministry of Defense to our company," the announcement said."
"More than that, new prospects for development were offered in October 2014 when Russian Helicopters, with the support of Rostech [Russian state corporation], gained the right to sell products for military purposes abroad," it went on.
