Pilots from Kazakhstan improved skills in operating the Mi-171A2 helicopter
The training program included 60 hours of theoretical classes
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 center 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.
The first Mi-171A2 aircraft was delivered to Kazakhstan in early 2019. This helicopter is the most modern modification of Mi-8/17 type. The use of a digital on-board 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 aircraft, its systems and units as well as the rotorcraft's flight characteristics. The training program included study of aviation and radio-electronic equipment, practical aerodynamics, navigation, aviation meteorology, aviation communications and radiotelephony, and flight safety management systems.
