Yesterday marked a milestone for the Guimbal Cabri G2 as the 11th aircraft was delivered to the UK.
Paul White, owner of Elstree Helicopters landed G-FPEH, G2 Serial Number 1093 at Elstree Aerodrome yesterday morning after an uneventful flight back from Hélicoptères Guimbal in Aix-en-Provence – in just a day and a half, given unexpectedly suitable weather for Europe in March. Elstree Helicopters will commence flight training with their new Cabri later this week.
Elstree Helicopters are the sixth Approved Training Organisation to offer helicopter flight training on the Cabri G2 in the UK.
Andy Moorhouse of Cotswold Helicopter Centre, Guimbal sales and support representatives in the UK, accompanied Paul on the collection flight from the factory. He confirmed that Cotswold Helicopter Centre have a further 13 aircraft on order with Hélicoptères Guimbal for the UK market.
