Ever since the start of the direct US involvement in Afghanistan, the CIA has organized a small air arm, equipped with at least two An-32 transports and several Mi-8/17 helicopters, acquired from different sources within the former USSR. This Mi-17 is used, together with several other examples, for transporting CIA-paramilitaries (but also members of specific other US special services) around Afghanistan, since October 2001.
