Space technology investing in Arctic version of the Mi-8.


26 December 2013. Experts are engaged in modernization Mi-8 for Russian troops. This was announced by the chief engineer of the aviation plant in Ulan-Ude - Sergey Solomin.

To ensure that the cockpit of the helicopter does not produce heat, use the technology that is used on spacecraft. Also, in addition, the ship will be equipped with a powerful power plant for 30 kW, which can withstand additional loads - heating the cabin or heating food.

They also want to upgrade the installation, which allows the helicopter to continue to fly in the event of a single engine failure. A ski chassis was added to the helicopter in case of landing on snow or marshland.
