Since I have nothing serious to add, I figured I'd just put it out there.... I imagine Mil-8 training is one of those "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" deals.

thanks as well for the 2cents worth.... no, seriously! I mean it. Always fun to read. Yep, i'm sure the fuel burn is spectacular but but i sure would like to fly one. They do have simulators for it at El Dorado. I have called the U.S. office several times , two different numbers. I guess they have so many students they don't need to return calls. With Chavez and Putin talking, I bet there will be a bunch more of them operating. You won't find any Venezuelanos training in Colombia though!

I totally agree Jeff... it would be the bee's knees to log some time and get some training in something like that. Plz keep us posted if you make any headway.

To all, I was lucky enough to fly into and out of the Kola Peninsula in Russia in a Mil-8. What an aircraft. Once on site, got to fly the Mil-2 to upper Salmon beats of Ponoi River in the Arctic Circle and return. A great experience for a fly fisherman with my Comrades!

Anyone know costs for Mil-8 training? I know there is a place in Bogota (El Dorado airport) but want to know of others have had prices given to them. I have not yet.

We have two helicopters MI-8T 1500 HP and MI-8AMT (MI-171; MI-171V)

MI-8T commercial cost is US$3,200.00

MI-8AMT commercial cost is US$4,850.00

No include fuel MI-8T is 212 glns/hr and MI-8AMT 250 glns/hr.

The instruction to new pilots is about 35 hrs, but is necesary to have experience in large helicopters. I am instructor in both helicopters, if you have more info about it, my e-mail is jcodap2009@gmail.com, regards Jose Dante.
