On 10th June, RSAF 125 Squadron celebrated 25 years successful operation of the Super Puma. To celebrate this milestone, past and present Super Puma community consisting of pilots, commanders and industry partners were invited to Sembawang Airbase for the occasion. Eurocopter South East Asia (ESEA), being a strategic partner, was pleased to participate actively in this occasion

Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) formed 125 Squadron after acquiring a fleet of Super Puma AS332 in 1985. Today, 125 Squadron operates a fleet of 30 Super Puma and supports Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) in aerial troop lift and resupply, special operations like counter-terrorism, search-and-rescue (SAR) missions, peace support and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) operations.

Mr David Huntzinger, Eurocopter’s Vice President, Fleet Safety, who was on a visit to ESEA, declared “I am delighted to be part of this celebration to witness RSAF’s confidence in Eurocopter’s Super Puma. Eurocopter is also proud to hear that despite the aircrafts being in service for 25 years, they remain relevant and safe for RSAF’s wide range of operations. We will continue to provide full support to RSAF for as long as the Super Puma are in service.”
