Russian Helicopters and UZROSAVIA Boosting Maintenance in Central Asia

4th December 2009 - 13:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Russian Helicopters, JSC, and UZROSAVIA (Uzbekistan) have signed an agreement on the principles of cooperation in service and maintenance of Russian rotorcraft.

The agreement was signed in Moscow and will coordinate the cooperation of the two companies on service and maintenance of Russian rotorcraft in Uzbekistan and other Central Asian countries. The agreement is effective 5 years and may be continued.

Cooperation with UZROSAVIA comes as another step under the Russian Helicopters aftersales service development strategy, envisioning a global service network with MRO centres in all key regions to support operators of Russian rotorcraft. Building a global service network will see Russian Helicopters shift from selling just the product to offering lifecycle support.

“The agreement with UZROSAVIA is part of our initiative to legitimize service and maintenance of Russian rotorcraft in the CIS. This document allows our partners from neighbouring states to receive certification in Russia. We are sure our work proves efficient in economic terms and are expecting long-term beneficial cooperation with our partners from Uzbekistan,” Russian Helicopters CEO Andrei Shibitov announced.

“Our company has been a successful maintenance and repair centre for Mi-8 and Mi-24 helicopters since 1993. We hope that cooperation with Russian helicopters will see us starting repairs of the Mi-8/17. Our services will be available not only to operators in Uzbekistan but also those in neighbouring countries,” Abid Mirzaev, Director General, UZROSAVIA, stated at the signing ceremony.
