Pilots From Kazakhstan Improved Their Skills In Operating The Mi-171A2 Helicopter In Ulan-Ude

By Staff Correspondent

The crew of the Berkut State Airlines from Kazakhstan underwent annual retraining under the supplemental professional training programs for the Mi-171A2 helicopter. It was held at the aviation training centre of the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant of the Russian Helicopters Holding Company (part of the Rostec State Corporation). The training program included 60 hours of theoretical classes.

“Such training allows us to improve our skills and knowledge gained during initial Mi-171A2 helicopter crew training held as part of the supply contract. The authorized civil aviation body of the Republic of Kazakhstan has validated the enterprise’s aviation training centre. According to the Kazakhstan aviation rules, pilots from this country should annually improve their skills to ensure flight safety”, said Nikolay Kolesov, Director General of the Russian Helicopters Holding.

The first Mi-171A2 helicopter was delivered to Kazakhstan in early 2019. The Mi-171A2 helicopter is the most modern modification of the Mi-8/17 type. The use of a digital onboard equipment package on the Mi-171A2 helicopter, designed according to the “glass cockpit” concept, makes it possible to reduce the crew to two members.

During the training, special attention was paid to the design and flight operation of the Mi-171A2 helicopter, its systems and units, and the rotorcraft’s flight characteristics. The training program included a study of aviation and radio-electronic equipment, practical aerodynamics, navigation, aviation meteorology, aviation communications and radiotelephony, and flight safety management systems.
