Russian Helicopters is set to open a mobile maintenance centre for Mi-171Sh multirole helicopters in Peru, the company announced on 16 May.

The service centre will consist of three different maintenance lines: full airframe overhaul of the Mi-171Sh, mechanical system aggregate maintenance and aviation/radioelectric equipment maintenance.

The company has finished the first installation and commissioning stage under a contract with Rosoboronexport. Further work will continue in October and complete by the end of the year. Russian Helicopters will work with its Peruvian partner to carry out initial helicopter repairs at the centre.

Peru currently operates more than 90 civilian and military Mi-8/17 helicopters produced in the USSR and Russia.
