In Russia, mass production of the civilian version of the Arctic version of the Mi-8AMT helicopter has begun. According to the Rostec press service, the first production car has finished testing and is ready for transfer to the customer.


It is reported that the first Mi-8AMT helicopter was assembled at the Ulan-Ude aircraft factory and has already completed the flight test program, having passed the acceptance procedure. A feature of the machine is a special heating system for the transmission units, which allows the engines to be started even when they are outdoors for a long time at low temperatures. In addition, the helicopter has improved thermal protection, additional fuel tanks. The possibility of installing a splashdown system is also claimed. The flight range of this version of MI-8AMT is 1400 km, while in the air - up to 7 hours.

According to the CEO of Russian Helicopters Andrei Boginsky, the new Mi-8AMT will be in demand among a wide range of Russian companies and government agencies operating in the Arctic.

It contains the pilot complex of the PKV-8 helicopter, a satellite navigation system for the commander and co-pilot, weather radar 8A-813K, the latest navigation and landing equipment and a Doppler speed and angle drift meter CMA-2012C (R). The helicopter is also equipped with additional internal fuel tanks to increase flight range.

      Recently I ran into the training center - I was surprised. He retrains a lot for helicopters of naval aviation. It's not for nothing. So we need cars, then they fly with a bucket, then with a "ball"

    We have a northern country, such systems must be mounted on all machines. And why not the Mi-38?

    It’s like they flew in the Arctic before. Already 50 years. What is the breakthrough?

    A good car, especially in conditions of more vigorous development of the North.

      The machine, it seems, is good and necessary, but how much was paid to Boginsky so that he would not get into his own business and interfere? I have long been waiting for Boginsky to do his well-deserved work for a long time - sewing mittens or lumberjacks.

    The device has become more attractive purely visually. The GXNUMX looks more dynamic, so to speak.
    I can’t say anything for the changes, since I’m not an aviator.
    But, in theory, normal people are trying to improve with changes.

    Earlier, five crews flew in eights in the Arctic .. They didn’t write whether there is a place for a radio operator and a navigator on this model .. And one more important detail - on additional tanks in the cabin, the beds are immediately mounted, or will you have to make any of them yourself? )
