Nice video. There are quite a few Soviet-era relics at that airstrip. Some look serviceable, some not so much...

I have to admit I didn't know what "Zaporizhzhya" was until I looked it up.

Thank you for your comment

There are really two different helicopters Mil Mi-2 in Zaporizhzhya for helicopter tours - one is Soviet Era (made in Poland) and another is completely updated that is in process of certification. Some pictures attached.

Hmm, pretty luxurious, by some standards (at least for pax, though the cockpit looks comfy also). I would love to fly in one of those birds.

What's the story with MSA that the door doesn't match the rest of the scheme? Thanks.

A couple more questions, not aviation related and you're not obliged to answer:

What sort of surface mine is that at about 2:40 in the video? Coal for the powerplant next door?

Also, what is the project underway at about 5:00 min in? Thanks.

I'm not a spook, trust me. Those guys probably already know. Just curious.

The PIC seems to be going for a "most switches operated" award as part of the start up. It's either very manual with a lot of pumps/cocks/valves or he missed a few on the pre-start checks.

That tour showed all the major highlights of Zaporizhya.
1) Khortytsia Island
2) The hydro electric power station
3) The new bridge they abandoned when they ran out of money

That's it.
