Russian Helicopters, February 10, 2016 - Moscow - Russian Helicopters (part of State Corporation Rostec) has delivered a Mi-171E helicopter with a superior comfort cabin to the government of the Republic of Uganda.

The Mi-171E helicopter supplied to Uganda is distinguished by its superior comfort cabin designed for 12 passengers. It is fitted with soft leather-wrapped armchairs and comfortable furniture made from fine wood.

Additionally, the Mi-171E was equipped with a new MBKhU air conditioning system with increased performance, small weight and size; it ensures comfortable temperature in the passenger cabin and crew compartment.

In addition, to increase safety, the helicopter is equipped with a ground proximity warning system that duly notifies the crew of a dangerous proximity of an obstacle, or ground or water surface in order to prevent accidents.

The Mi-171 helicopter is a deep modernization of the Mi-8. The Mi-171 helicopter has a certificate issued by AR IAC as well as an approval of the type certificate in a number of Asian countries. It is operated in 30 countries around the world. An important notion on the Mi-171 helicopter is that it is produced with the use of aircraft technologies of UUAP (Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant, JSC).
