Russians to Increase Mi-8/17 Maintenance in South Africa
Russian Helicopters signed an agreement during the 2013 Paris Air Show to bolster the maintenance services offered for its Mi-8 and Mi-17 helicopter lines in South Africa. Denel Aviation and State Corporation Rostec subsidiary Oboronprom will team to expand the functionality of services at its maintenance center for commercial Mi-8s and Mi-17s. Under the partnership, Denel's facility will be outfitted with "advanced equipment," although neither of the companies have established what new maintenance services will be offered.
