Russian Helicopters is poised to supply Mi-171 helicopters to China


Rostec, September 10, 2015 - Russian Helicopters Holding Company plans to deliver two MI-171 aircraft to China in 2016.

Mi-171 helicopters have a successful operational track record throughout China, specifically, across complex terrain and severe climate regions.

They can be utilized to transport various goods, deliver medicines, humanitarian aid supplies and construction materials and can also be deployed for rescue and disaster relief operations.

Mi-171 rotorcrafts were employed to evacuate people in the aftermath of the powerful earthquake in April 2013 in the Sichuan Province.

With mountain roads being left in tatters, helicopter was the only means of transportation and delivery. Russian helicopters won the highest praise from Chinese rescuer workers and operators of helicopters for their trouble-free operation, reliability, endurance and ease of maintenance.

China remains one of the largest operators of Russian-built helicopters. Mi-8/17 helicopters are the most popular rotorcrafts in the country. The Mi-171 fleet in China numbers about 150 aircraft.

In June 2014, Russian Helicopters completed the delivery of 84 Mi-171E helicopters powered by Russian-made VK-2500 engines to Chinese company Poly Technologies.
