Afghanistan has been the recipient of a number of donated Mi-17 aircraft, many with uncertain maintenance histories and/or missing historical records.  DTI was asked by the U.S. Army in 2009 to develop a program to return these aircraft to OEM spec and obtain IAC supported flight worthiness certificates.  Of critical importance was keeping the aircraft in theater, and returning them to mission ready status in the shortest period possible.  In response, DTI prepared a 24 Month Inspect and Repair As Necessary (IRAN) program that includes complete ground and flight testing.  Performed by maintenance personnel from IAC certified overhaul facilities making use of depot supplied equipment, the final product is a fully functional aircraft with a flight worthiness certificate accepted by the U.S. Army.
