The Mi-17 helicopter, essentially a cargo helicopter offering a maximum internal useful load of 4 metric tons, has been designed and developed by the M.L. Mil design bureau. It is structurally similar to the well proven Mi-8 helicopter with universally recognised reliability.

The helicopter is powered by TV3-117 turboshaft engines offering 1900 shp each at take-off. It is also fitted with a winch embodying a dynamometric safety system allowing a sling load of 3 metric tons. Further can be the Mi-17 used for passenger transport. The cabin is then heated and air conditioned offering capacity of 24 pax.

Besides, there exists also the air ambulance version where 12 stretchers together with the necessary medical equipment can be installed. Last but not least, just above the forward door, an electrical winch fitted on a boom allows either a man or small loads to be hoisted.
