The service center for overhaul of helicopters at Silk Way Helicopter Services for the first time carried out major repairs of MI-8AMT/MTV helicopters, the press service of Silk Way Helicopter Services announced May 23.
The decision to establish such a center in Azerbaijan was made in 2016 at the Azerbaijan International Defense Exhibition (ADEX).
The repairs were carried out and controlled by the specialists of the Russian Aircraft Repair Factory No. 356 with the direct participation of the airline's specialists.
In accordance with the instructions of the Aircraft Repair Factory, the dismantled units were sent for repair to the Factory No. 356. The fuselage of the helicopters and avionics were also repaired after inspection.
Equipment, special units, as well as consumables, fuel and lubricants used during the repair of the aircraft were fully provided by the Silk Way Helicopter Services.
Creation of the service center for overhaul of helicopters is a new stage in the development of the aviation industry of Azerbaijan, which gives impetus for further development of aircraft repair in Azerbaijan not only for local needs, but also for the purpose of attracting foreign participants of the aviation market.
