Russian Helicopters Opens Maintenance and Repair Center in Peru

Russian Helicopters has opened a maintenance and repair center in Lima, Peru.

 The facility will be used by Helicentro Peru to repair Mi-17 civil helicopters operated in the region, and by Russian Helicopters to overhaul Mi-17 aircraft for the Peruvian Air Force.

The official opening ceremony was attended by CEO of Russian Helicopters Andrey Boginsky and Chief Commander of the Peruvian Air Force, Rodolfo García Esquerre.

“The establishment of a maintenance and repair center for Russian Helicopters in Peru is of strategic importance – it will enable us to provide the full range of work without taking fuselages out of the country. Although the center has just started operations, it already has orders through to 2023 – nearly 40 helicopters have been scheduled for repair during the next five years. In addition, the advantageous geographical location of Peru and the enterprise's production capacity would enable to accept orders from other countries of the region,” said Andrey Boginsky, CEO of Russian Helicopters.

There are currently over 100 Russian helicopters in operation in Peru.

 Viktor Kladov, Rostec's Director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy, said, “We continue to create a unified system for managing the life cycle of our helicopters in Peru. The opening of the aircraft maintenance center significantly enhances our position in Latin America - a top-priority region for Rostec.”
