Heli-Expo 2015 in Orlando gave Hélicoptères Guimbal the opportunity to display the brand new, second Cabri being delivered to their first customer and distributor on the North-American market, Precision Helicopters, Oregon. It also permitted to celebrate the helicopter certification recently delivered by the FAA.
Expectedly, the helicopter attracted a considerable interest from operators of all the world.
Bruno Guimbal, president & CEO of the French manufacturer, signed during the show 10 new sales and 4 options for helicopters to be delivered by the end of 2016 / beginning of 2017. A very strong market was confirmed by tens of potential buyers.
The delivery book for the Cabri counts now more than 80 helicopters.
Most of these helicopters will be used for pilots training, alike about 90% of the Cabri fleet.
” Training is probably the toughest job for a helicopter, but there is not much other choice for a newcomer in the two-seat category. It helps us go through the learning curve. The Cabri is now recognized as a very safe and profitable helicopter, thus more schools and more students want it now” according to Bruno Guimbal.
During the show, the company released their new video “Building a Guimbal Cabri”, available on Vimeo and Youtube.
