Russian Helicopters to provide after-sales service
Russian Helicopters is preparing to offer after-sales services and maintenance for Russian-made helicopters operated in Egypt.
The repair base in Heluane will be authorised by Russian Helicopters to perform the services, and will be equipped to provide support and repairs to Mi-8T and Mi-17-1V helicopters operated by the Egyptian Air Force.
“We urge all those who operate our helicopters globally to take this opportunity to use the after-sales service provision offered by Russian Helicopters or certified enterprises, and to steer clear of dubious suppliers and providers - after all, the lives of pilots and many others depend on the quality of the components used and of the repairs and maintenance work carried out,” said Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev.
Repairs to the helicopters must be carried out in accordance requisite repair documentation issued by the production plant and agreed with the developer, and customers are encouraged to purchase parts and components through Russian Helicopters.
Russian Helicopters will be delivering equipment, carrying our commissioning work and transferring documentation to the Egyptian base, ready to provide design and technical support for a two year period.
