Mi‑8 Export Numbers

Mi‑8 Export Numbers assigned by AviaExport

Mi-8 Export Numbers | Mi-17 Export Numbers

From the beginning of the serial production until 1969, all exported Mi‑8 helicopters had the same construction numbers as the helicopters built for the Soviet market.

From 1970 onwards, all Mi‑8 helicopters built for foreign customers received special Export Numbers. The Export Numbers were assigned by AviaExport, the sole exporter of Soviet military and civil aircraft.

The Mi‑8 Export Number format is CCC NN where CCC is the country code and NN (NNN in case of more than 100 helicopters exported) is the number within the country sequence.

Initially AviaExport used its own country codes, the first digit of which indicated the continent and the second and third digits the country. Starting in the 1990s, standard ISO 3166 country codes were used instead.

As with other numbering principles the first three digits indicate the country the helicopter was originally built for.

Mi‑17 Export Numbers

Mi-8 Export Numbers | Mi-17 Export Numbers

With the production of the Second Mi‑8 Generation, the assignment of Export Numbers was changed. While all Mi‑17 helicopters built in Kazan for foreign customers continued to receive special Export Numbers, all Mi‑171 / Mi‑8AMT helicopters built in Ulan-Ude were given uniform construction numbers for both Russian and foreign customers.

The Export Number format of all Kazan built Mi‑17s is CCC V NN where CCC is the country or customer code, V is the basic version (M = transport version, C = salon version) and NN (NNN in case of more than 100 helicopters exported) is the number within the country or customer sequence.

The Mi‑17s, which were built in the Soviet Union, received the country codes assigned by AviaExport. Starting in the 1990s, standard ISO 3166 country codes were used instead.

As with other numbering principles the first three digits indicate the country or customer the helicopter was originally built for.
