India will open a new centre for repairing Russian helicopters of Mi-17V-5 type before 2019, Russian Helicopters Deputy Director General Igor Chechikov told journalists at the LIMA 2019 air show.
“The Russian side is carrying out pre-commissioning activities as part of an offset to create the Major Repair Center in the city of Chandigarh for a number of main units and subsystems of helicopters of Mi-17V-5 type. There are plans to start their testing repairs before the end of 2019,” Chechikov said.
If the Indian side is interested, Russian Helicopters are ready to extend the capabilities of this center in the future, he said.
