In 2014, over 1,000 Russian and international flight and engineering crew underwent training at Russian Helicopters’ (part of State Corporation Rostec) training centres. Aircrews from the Emergencies Ministry, Interior Ministry and Federal Security Service (FSB), as well as Russian Helicopters’ international partners, received additional professional training. Crews from the Republic of Korea, Peru, Kazakhstan and Mongolia were among the international flight personnel involved.
Russian Helicopters’ facilities in Kazan, Ulan-Ude, Rostov-on-Don, Novosibirsk and in the Moscow Region delivered outstanding flight crew training, and were praised by both Russian and international pilots and engineers.
The aircraft training centre at Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant trained over 200 pilots and engineers forMi-8AMT and Mi-171 helicopters, which are series produced at the plant. The plant’s training centre is equipped with a Mi-8AMT / Mi-171 flight simulator, offers full-cycle training and specialises in the retraining and additional professional training for flight and engineering crews.
Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant is currently developing a simulator for the new Mi-171A2, which will make it possible to start training and re-train flight crews while the helicopter is brought into series production.
