A ceremony was held yesterday at Vung Tau Airport to mark the start of the Eurocopter EC225 as a new helicopter type for the Vietnam Navy.  Commander of the Vietnamese Navy Admiral Nguyen Van Hien and Deputy Chief of General Staff of the Vietnamese People’s Army Lieutenant General Tran Quang Khue attended the event,

It is believed that some influence in their choice of this helicopter type for SAR work was based on the existing operations of the EC225 by local operator Southern Service Flight Company, who ordered their third of the type in October. (see HeliHub.com story)

The two new helicopters carry local serials VNT-768 and VNT-769
