In Abkhazia we use light European helicopters SA 341 HT MK2 Gazelle and and SA-319 Alouette III. Fast and maneuverable Gazelle has perfectly shown itself for the last two years during our heliski programs in Abkhazia and also during various summer operations including heli-biking. Alouette III SA-319 is a simple and powerful mountain machine which has found application in rescue services all over the world.
In Kamchatka we use various modifications of the strong russian Mi-8 helicopters — Mi-8MT and Mi-8MTB. These reliable two-engined machines checked by years of operation have been specially developed for flights in mountains.
