Helicentro Peru Director General Augusto Tenorio Dominguez, Russian Helicopters CEO Andrey Boginsky as well as Peruvian Air Force's high-level representatives and Russian diplomats were among the attendees of a ceremony to open the center.

It is planned that the centre, which was due to be opened in 2017, will provide maintenance services for Russia's Mi-17-class helicopters. The center will not confine its activity to the maintenance of the Peruvian helicopters and will also repair Russia-manufactured helicopters operated by other Latin countries.
