Thai operator Advance Aviation has posted to their Facebook page a photo of their new acquisition Airbus H130, serial 8090. Still currently on test flights with Airbus Helicopters South East Asia in Singapore carrying French test registration F-WTCP, the aircraft will become HS-JCN once it becomes operational on Advance’s fleet in Thailand in the new year. The company has operational bases at Bangkok, Phuket and Chaing Mai.
The new aircraft features sliding doors on both sides, plus a new style electronic cooling system.
This aircraft may be a one-for-one replacement for HS-CCN which was unfortunately lost in a fatal accident in September 2014 in Myanmar
