Indon Army gets big birds back from repair

Specialists from Indonesia visited 150 Aircraft Repair Plant (150 ARP) of Russian Helicopters  (part of Rostec State Corporation) to accept two Mi-35P helicopters sent for repairs last year.

A contract for major repairs of the machines was signed in September 2016.

Under the contract, repairs were made at 150 ARP from November 2016 through August 2017.

Indonesian delegates conducted a flight test inspection, examined the helicopters and signed the necessary documents.

Igor Chechikov, Russian Helicopters’ Deputy CEO for Aftersales Service said the company was pleased to say that repairs of the helicopters for the Indonesian Army were completed in accordance with the schedule.

“Russian Helicopters is always ready to ensure proper and timely repairs and servicing of machinery manufactured in Russia,” he said.

The first Mi-35P attack helicopters were supplied to Indonesia in September 2003. In accordance with an intergovernmental agreement, in September 2007 Indonesia ordered another three Mi-35P helicopters which were supplied in September 2010. An official ceremony to mark the handover of the helicopters to the Indonesian Army was held on October 20, 2010, at Pondok Cabe Airport (the civilian and military airport in Jakarta).
