Russian Helicopters to Certify MRO Center in Egypt

Russian Helicopters is to establish a maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) center for Mi-8/17 helicopters based at the facilities of Helwan Factory for Developed Industries (HFDI) in Helwan, Egypt. The MRO center will be certified in 2019.

During the first stage, the center will carry out maintenance and overhaul of Mi-8T and Mi-17-1V helicopters operated by the Egyptian Air Force, with plans for the Mi-17V-5 helicopter to be added to the list in the future.

Over the last three years, Russian Helicopters has supplied HFDI with the required equipment and conducted the necessary personnel training at the Aviation Training Center of Novosibirsk Aircraft Repair Plant.

“One of the key objectives of JSC Russian Helicopters is to organize a system of after-sales support providing first-class service throughout the complete life cycle of Russian-made rotorcraft,” said Igor Chechikov, Deputy Director General for After-Sales Support of JSC Russian Helicopters. “The company intends to continue expanding its global network of authorized service centers. Over the past three years, in cooperation with our partners from HFDI we have performed a tremendous job establishing the MRO center for Russian-made rotorcraft at the factory’s facilities. The Egyptian side is already in the process of performing a pilot Mi-8T and Mi-17-1V overhaul upon the results of which we plan to proceed with certification of the center.”

Mi-8/17 helicopters, developed by Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant (part of Russian Helicopters Holding Company), are capable of medevac and humanitarian missions, cargo and passenger transportation. Military-transport Mi-8/17 helicopters are designed to transport service personnel and to carry cargo inside the cabin and on the external sling.
