ARINC Completes Mi-17s for Iraq
Annapolis, Md.-based ARINC Engineering Services has modified and delivered the last of 22 Russian Mi-17s for the Iraqi Air Force. This follows a similar upgrade ARINC carried out last year on 10 Mi-17s for the Air Force of Afghanistan. Modifications and upgrades for the Iraqi and Afghani helicopters were performed at ARNIC’s facility in the United Arab Emirates. ARINC will also provide maintenance training and logistic support for the Iraqi aircraft at Camp Taji.
