The authorities are trying to find a foreign company that can service engines

According to TASS, due to difficulties with technical support for engines in Primorye, in 2023, the number of flights of DHC-6 aircraft manufactured in Canada was halved.

Three DHC-6 aircraft in this region operate flights on nine routes: Terney – Amgu, Terney – Edinka, Vladivostok – Plastun, Vladivostok – Terney, Vladivostok – Kavalerovo, Vladivostok – Dalnegorsk, Vladivostok – Transfiguration, Dalnegorsk – Svetlaya, Terney – Svetlaya.

Today, there are a number of difficulties associated with anti-Russian sanctions, including the provision of technical support for Canadian-made DHC-6 aircraft engines owned by Primorsky Krai. For the planned distribution of the engine life of these aircraft in 2023, the number of aircraft flights is forced to be halved. Passenger transportation to the settlements to which flights are carried out by DHC-6 aircraft is provided by sufficiently developed railway and bus services.

The authorities are trying to find a foreign company that can service the engines of these aircraft, planning to return to the usual flight program by 2024.

Along with this, measures are being developed to replace aircraft on the above routes with domestically produced helicopters.

RBC adds that in order to ensure flights in this region from 2024, six Baikal aircraft manufactured by the Ural Civil Aviation Plant (UZGA) are needed. But so far, it has been possible to agree on the delivery of five such aircraft “only by 2030.”
