    Once again, the human factor ... It’s time to change the turntables for new ones ... The conditions there are still those ... And the border guards are flying all the junk ...

        about updating the fleet of vertical

        So they build 10 helicopters per year. You won’t be able to quickly update everything at this rate. If helicopters were built like on an auto conveyor and produced at least 15 a month, then it was super. And it remains only to fly on junk.

      Human Factor Again

      Most likely no. If we take into account the mass of the Mi-8, the number of flight hours, then most likely we will get the most reliable helicopter in the world. Just when there are so many of them flying, statistics come into play and sometimes some kind of thing happens.

    The FPS with me in the late 90s had helicopters still soviet. We flew board 05 on posts, so generally 1978. Has the gebists really not yet allocated money for aviation?
    The border guards will recover soon.

    As a result, the helicopter made a hard landing in the message is not a word. Maybe you need to wait for additional information and then draw conclusions. I wish the border guards a speedy recovery.
