Second Mi-26 Delivered

Second Mi-26 Delivered January 2, 2019

Russia delivered the second Mi-26T transport helicopter to Jordan. The news was announced via official website of the Royal Jordanian Air Force.

The agreement for helicopters to be procured by Jordan in total of four was signed in September 2016. Military and civilian users jointly use the platforms. Deliveries are planned between 2018-2019. Amman has two more options for helicopters which are flying without any Jordanian markings.

The Mi-26T is the only Russian-based rotary-wing aircraft in the Royal Jordanian Armed Forces where Western product platforms are often used.
