Russian Helicopters Supplies Kazakhstan with Mi-8AMT
Russian Helicopters has supplied the Almaty City Rescue Service (Kazakhstan) with a multirole Mi-8AMT helicopter. Today, about 200 helicopters built at the company’s facilities are operated by private companies and state agencies in Kazakhstan.
“The delivery of the Mi-8AMT to the Almaty City Rescue Service represents another important step in the development of Russia-Kazakhstan cooperation in the operation of Russian-made helicopters,” Deputy Director General of Russian Helicopters Grigory Kozlov said.
It’s necessary to mention that the Mi-8AMT helicopter delivered to the Almaty City Rescue Service was built at the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant under a contract signed in 2013. The rotorcraft is fitted with a winch and an external sling, which has a hydraulic weighing system.
The Mi-8AMT is a modern modification of the Mi-8 helicopter with an improved power system. The helicopter equipped with comfortable seats, wide windows, air conditioning, information and emergency lighting panels, and fluorescent lighting, can carry up to 13 passengers.
