Helicopter crash. Who will repair the aircraft?

On the fact of helicopter crash in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan, two commissions have been set up. The head of the Aksay Travel Company Elena Kalashnikova told this to 24.kg news agency, Kyrgyzstan.

According to her, the Agreement between the company and the General Staff of the Armed Forces states that the aircraft must be insured in case of a crash.

“I have to insure the helicopter. Now the insurance company is investigating the causes of its crash. The amount of insurance is paid according to the cost provided by the General Staff of the Armed Forces. I will not disclose the amount. It all depends on the reasons for the accident. Two independent commissions operate on the site including one from Kyrgyzstan and another – the insurance one created from representatives of international aviation enterprises,” Mrs. Kalashnikova said.

24.kg news agency asked the question of who will restore the aircraft to the General Staff.

Gulzat Jarasheva, manager of the Information Security Department, said that investigative measures are underway.

“After the conclusion is issued, it will be known who will restore the helicopter. I do not know anything about the commission. While there are investigative measures, I have no right to disclose anything,” Mrs. Jarasheva said.

Mrs. Jarasheva also cannot answer the question whether the aircraft will be left on Southern Enilchek or it will be taken to another place. The editorial board received a similar answer to the question whether compensation will be paid to the injured foreigners and servicemen.

Recall, on July 9, 2018 the helicopter carried out a search operation and disappeared from the radar screens. The General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Kyrgyz Republic specified that during the rescue operation on the South Enilchek site, the Mi-8MTV helicopter owned by the Air Defense Force, Kyrgyzstan, suffered an accident. Because of the strong side wind during the landing, the helicopter fell to the left side. As a result of this crash, six people including three servicemen and three tourists were injured.
