Russian Helicopters May Start Arriving in 2010

The first of five Mil Mi-17 helicopters could start service with the Chilean air force next year. The Ministry of Defense is still negotiating the purchase, according to La Tercera. It would be the first time Chile acquires Russian-made military hardware. The Mi-17 is a reliable aircraft that costs a lot less than comparable helicopters. More details are in a December post.
