Aviation jobs in Peru

Russian Helicopters holding continues its successful cooperation with Peru. In may this year, the holding has successfully participated in the exhibition 6th International Exhibition of Technology in Defense and Prevention of Natural Disasters (SITDEF 2017, Lima, Peru). And in those days, it was announced that Russian Helicopters has fulfilled two contracts for the supply of aviation equipment for Mi-8/17 and Mi-24/35 helicopters that belong to the Peruvian Air Force. Contracts were signed in the summer of 2016 following a tender.

Delivery of authentic components for Russian-made helicopters is an important part of maintaining equipment in constant flight readiness and improving flight safety. We are pleased to note the desire of our Peruvian counterparts to combat counterfeiting and to purchase spare parts for helicopters directly from the manufacturer. We are counting on a gradual increase in the volumes of supplies and expansion of cooperation, said Russian Helicopters Deputy CEO for After Sales Service Igor Chechikov.

The fleet of Russian-made helicopters in Peru is one of the biggest in the Western Hemisphere. The country operates more than 100 Russian-made helicopters. The Armed Forces of Peru are actively using Russian Mi-8/17 and Mi-24/35 helicopters in the most difficult and inaccessible areas of the country. Russian Helicopters products take part in special operations of the Peruvian armed forces in the fight against drug trafficking and illegal mining of minerals.

One of the most important tasks of Russian Helicopters is to provide first-class maintenance of helicopter equipment throughout its life cycle. To this end, the holding is actively developing a system of after-sales service in all key regions of the world, including the countries of Latin America. The integrated after-sales service system offered by the holding company ensures repairs and modernization of helicopters in the shortest possible time, thus supporting helicopter fleet in constant operational readiness.

At the SITDEF 2017 Russian Helicopters specialists under the auspices of AO Rosoboronexport showed the Mi-17V-5 military and transport helicopter, the Mi-171Sh military and transport and Mi-26 heavy transport models. Additionally, Russian Helicopters staff showed their Peruvian partners the Ansat light helicopter, which due to numerous modifications is capable of solving tasks for both civilian and security agencies. Negotiations with representatives of security agencies from the regions countries helped promote Mi-26T2 and Ansat-U helicopters, as well as develop the after-sales system for Russian-made helicopters in the region.

The Mi-17V-5 military and transport helicopter belongs to the Mi-8/17 family and can be used to perform combat tasks with various armament, for search-and-rescue, ambulance, and special operations. The helicopter is equipped with new VK-2500 engines, modern avionics, modernized transmission, and can transport up to 4,000 kg of cargo in the cabin or on an external sling. Russian Helicopters is constantly improving the helicopter's characteristics to boost its competitiveness.

Ansat is a light twin-engine multirole helicopter with a hydro-mechanical flight control system designed for 7-9 people. It can take 1,300 kg of load, and its cabin can be rapidly re-configured. In December 2014, it was certified for passenger transportation. In May 2015, the modification with a medical module was certified. In October 2016, the first Ansat in VIP configuration was delivered to a customer, and in November Russian Helicopters signed first contracts to supply medevac Ansats to China.

The Mi-26 is the world's best serial helicopter in terms of cargo weights. Its performance indicators are unequaled. The helicopter is capable of transporting up to 20 tons of cargo in its body or sling loaded. Currently, Russian Helicopters produce the helicopter's new upgraded version, the Mi-26T2. It is equipped with modern avionics. The crew is reduced from five members in the Mi-26T to three in the Mi-26T2, thus lowering direct operating costs and expenditures for training and retraining of flight personnel. The design, equipment, and systems of the Mi-26T2 allow to use it around the clock in usual and adverse weather conditions, over flat, hilly and mountainous terrain.
