Earlier this month, Aerosoyuz became the first helicopter company in Russia to become an official service center for the AgustaWestland AW109. The certification process involved training a minimum of 6 engineers for each type and the purchase of type-specific maintenance equipment.
HeliHub.com believes there are currently six AW119s operating on the Russian register.
