Russian Helicopters, part of State Corporation Rostec, has fulfilled its first contract for after-sale maintenance of multirole Mi-17-1V helicopters operated by the Mexican Navy. 

“This is our first contract with the Naval Secretariat of Mexico. It was fulfilled in full and on time,” said Igor Chechikov, Russian Helicopter's deputy CEO. “Mexico is one of our key partners in Latin America; it has quite an extensive fleet of Russian-made helicopters. In 2016, we will expand cooperation with our Mexican partners in terms of after-sale service.  The parties are already involved in negotiations on these issues.”

One of the main priorities for Russian Helicopters is active development of a comprehensive system of after-sales service for Russian-made helicopters all around the world including a number of Latin American countries.

In 2014-2015, the company successfully collaborated with the Mexican Secretariat of National Defense by performing extensive repairs of 19 Mi-17/Mi-17-1V helicopters.  Currently, Russian Helicopters are actively involved in warranty and post-warranty maintenance of helicopters belonging to the Mexican Ministry of Defense.

The multirole Mi-171V helicopter is one of the modifications of the Mi-17 series that were developed by Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant, part of Russian Helicopters.  Strong flight performance, simplicity of operation and reliability made these helicopters popular all around the world.  The multirole Mi-171V helicopter is capable of moving at a speed of 250 km per hour and its flying range is 610 km.  The helicopter is capable of transporting up to 37 troopers.
