Following its successful demo tour in the North Sea, the EC175 headed to NHV in Ostende, Belgium for three days of demonstration flights.
In total, five flights were held carrying passengers such as NHV shareholders, investors, and Search and Rescue pilots.
Listen to Annabelle De Witte, HSE Manager for Senvion Benelux, Remco Siemerink, SAR base manager, and Bart Sinnaeve, senior pilot, share their experiences of the aircraft’s performance.
NHV provides helicopter services to the oil & gas industry, harbor pilots, utilities, governments and hospitals. The company will take delivery of its first EC175 later this year. The EC175 will begin its maturity campaign at NHV next week.
