Vietnam Helicopter Corp has ordered two G2 Cabri helicopters from Hélicoptères Guimbal in France – for delivery this summer. Following a year-long selection process, including flight evaluation and a government bidding procedure, the purchasing contract was signed in Hanoï between General Ha Tien Dung, VNH chairman and CEO, and Roland Mampe, director of programme at Hélicoptères Guimbal.
For Bruno Guimbal, president and CEO of the manufacturer: “with this important success, which follows several others including Heli-Union, the Polish Air Force and the Lithuanian Civil Aviation University, the Cabri G2 is proving itself the best training helicopter, and particularly for professional pilots aiming at heavy helicopters. This is the result of three years of in-the-field proving in smaller structures.”
The manufacturer starts 2014 with a strong order book increase, now extending to 2015, despite taking into account a strong production rate ramp-up.
