Posted 31 August 2013 · Add Comment

A corporate and VIP edition of Russia's Mi-171 helicopter has been certificated. Russian Helicopters received the certificate at the MAKS show in Moscow yesterday.

 

 

The VIP version of the MI-171 is produced at Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant, a Russian Helicopters company. The luxury interior is made by Russian Helicopters partner company AeroTaxi-Service, which specialises in creating and servicing VIP-class passenger interiors for Russian-built helicopters.

The Mi-171 is fitted with additional aviation equipment and systems that meet the latest requirements for reliability to ensure safety of operation and maintenance.

The luxury interior has additional thermal and sound isolation and is made of advanced materials including Euro-Composites cellular panels. The central section of the fuselage is divided into three compartments: front and rear airlocks and a central passenger salon that can hold up to eight passenger and one air steward. The Mi-171's luxury cabin has absolutely everything to ensure passengers are comfortable even on long flights.

Compared with the standard Mi-171, the version with a luxury cabin has improved aviation equipment; for example, instead of a UHF radio the helicopter is equipped with a Prima-VHF radio set. In addition the helicopter has radio equipment for providing in-flight updates and entertainment to passengers, a Pulsar radio station and universal communication unit.

The additional certification for the Mi-171 means the VIP version of the helicopter can enter the corporate transportation market. Developed based on the world-renowned Mi-8/17 series, the Mi-171 has all of the qualities of its famous predecessors including reliability and a high level safety, ease of use and suitability for outside storage.
