The MIL Mi-17 was formally launched in 1981, offering incremental improvements on the 1960’s MIL MI-8, aiming at refining the well proven rugged work-horse of a helicopter.
The principal elements of the upgrade include the following:
The MIL MI-17 is now the most cost effective transport helicopter in the world, a simple and robust design with very high reliability ideally suited for operations in low infrastructure environments away from base for prolonged periods with proven capability in temeratures ranging from +45° to -35° celsius degrees.
In the military sector (and FAA certified in the commercial sector as well) the MI-17 offers a very low cost alternative to the AS-332 “Super Puma”, the S-61 “Seaking” and even the EH101. Only the EH101 and the MI-17 offer ramp loading at the rear of the fuselage, higher MI-17 operating cost are more then offset by its low procurement cost.
A comprehensive Flight Avionic ensures day and night VFR/IFR capability, the usual analogue (electro-mechanical) cockpit instrumentation is supplemented by:
Two 1.434 Kw Klimow TV3-117MT turboshafts power plants, should one engine stop output of the other increased automatically to contingency rating of 12,637 kw enabling flight to continue, APU for pneumatic engine starting.
A huge variety of additional equipment for military and commercial use if offered, from external cockpit armour, flare dispenser under tailboom, JR jammer, reinforced fuselage harness attachment points, rescue hoist, externally mounted long range fuel tanks, just to name some out of a large variety of options.
