Ukrainian Helicopters aircrafts have already been participating in Sudan operations for three months. The Aviation Company has been carrying out transport support of the UN DPKO and African Union (UNAMID) joint mission in the country. The main task of the mission is to restore peace in the region of Darfur caught up in turmoil and unrest lasting for more than twenty years.
So, the aircrafts are tasked with transporting peace-making forces to the hard-to-reach zones of the country and assisting in organizing meetings of the negotiators. Delivering humanitarian aid for the local population – medication, staples, etc. - is of no secondary importance for Ukrainian Helicopters. For the time of being stationed there our pilots transported more than five thousand people of peacekeeping forces and 400 tons of cargo.
