Mil Mi-17 Avionics Modifications

Mil Mi-17 Avionics Modifications

Helicopters are commonly used for transportation and aerial work, often in inclement weather. The ability for a helicopter to operate away from the airfield provides the operator with unmatched operational flexibility compared to other aircraft types. Unlike fixed wing aircraft, helicopters can and do often remain in service for considerably longer time. The Southeast Asian helicopter operator had previously upgraded their Mi-17 with a weather radar system. With the looming obsolescence of the equipment, and the National Airworthiness Authority insisting on modifications being performed at a level of rigour similar to EASA modifications, GVH Aerospace was presented with the opportunity to provide an upgrade package to replace the obsolete equipment.

GVH Aerospace provided a turn-key modification package, designed to meet the equivalent CS-29 requirements. This provided assurance to the operator and the National Airworthiness Authority that the modification design was performed to the highest standard. The modification package was accepted by the National Airworthiness Authority without further need for validation, providing the helicopter operator with a solution that kept the Mi-17 fleet operating in inclement weather.
