Participants of the Oil & Gas Symposium had a great night networking during a party organized at the Sky Bar, on level 33 of the Traders Hotel after the first day of presentations and workshops. It was a great vantage point from which they had a panoramic view of the Kuala Lumpur city skyline.
The EC175 demo flights continued the next day for more participants of the symposium, including Capt. Le Trong Phuong, a seasoned pilot of 34 years’ experience with over 11,000 flight hours under his belt, who highly commended the technology in the EC175 which he described as an aircraft that is nearing perfection.
Capt. Wayne McQueen, the EC225 training captain from CHC Helicopters (Australia) was especially impressed with how de-cluttered the cockpit layout is; while Paul McKenna, also an EC225 training captain from Bristow Helicopters Australia “got a glimpse of the future” after flying in the EC175 which he found absolutely amazing.
The third day of the demo tour in Malaysia concluded with a final flight made for His Royal Highness Tengku Mahkota Pahang Tengku Abdullah Ibni Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Al-Musta’in Billah, who had praises for the comfort level and speed of the EC175. In addition, he liked the fact that it was very quiet in the cabin, making conversation really easy.
It was a fantastic day, with the EC175 again making deep impressions!
