DTI Mi-17 overhauls are performed at the Aviakon Aircraft Plant and the Sevastopol Aircraft Plant (SAP). Both
are government-owned depots located in Ukraine, and carry the following certifications:
- Ukrainian Ministry of Defense
- Ukrainian Ministry of Aviation
- Mil Moscow
- ISO 9001:2000
They authorized to overhaul all variants of the Mi-17 helicopters. To insure the highest
quality, engines and APUs are sent to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), Motor Sich.
Mi-17/35 Engine Overhauls
DTI has learned the hard way that not all engine overhaul facilities in the former Soviet
Union are equal, regardless of their holding all the appropriate certificates from Mil and the IAC. DTI therefore works
exclusively with Motor Sich for the overhaul of Mi-17/35 engines, APUs and fuel controls. Motor Sich, located in Ukraine, is
the Original Equipment Manufacturer of these critical components - there is no other source for new hardware.
DTI is teamed with the
Ukrainian overhaul facility AVIAKON for the overhaul of Mi-35 attack helicopters. AVIAKON was the largest aviation
depot in the former Soviet Union. Today it is the industry leader in the overhaul and life extension of Mi-35 aircraft,
overhauling more Mi-35s annually than all other overhaul facilties combined.
AVIAKON's certifications and capability to support the Mi-35 have been recognized
by the governments of India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Algeria, Bangladesh, South Africa, United
Arab Emirates, Mexico, Peru, Western Guinea, Djibouti, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia,
Czech Republic, Lithuania, and other CIS countries. AVIAKON was also selected to provide Mi-35 maintenance support to
NATO during the Balkans war.
