Russian Helicopters' Mi-171A2 has received Type
Certification from the South Korean Ministry of Land,
Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT).
Certification of the Mi-171A2 helicopter,
which is produced at the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant in Russia,
confirms the compliance of design with local flight safety
requirements and authorizes its use in the Republic of Korea.
"South Korea is the largest foreign operator of
the Ka-32 helicopter and also has a successful track record of
using Mi-8/17 in police operations," said
Andrey Boginsky, Director General of Russian Helicopters.
"Validation of the Mi-171A2 certificate proves that the country
has high demand and trust in Russian helicopter designs. I am
confident that our Korean partners will appreciate the outstanding
flight performance and modern on-board equipment of Mi-171A2;
negotiations about its delivery are already under way."
The first foreign operator of Mi-171A2 was the
Republic of Kazakhstan and it has also been certified by the aviation authorities of India and Colombia.
Russian Helicopters is also working on getting approval in China, Brazil, Mexico, Peru and
several other countries.
