Cotswold Helicopter Centre has today delivered the 17th Guimbal G2 Cabri for the United Kingdom market, handing over G-DGRE serial 1137 at the factory in southern France. This is the fourth Cabri purchased by Helicentre Aviation, following their initial collaboration with two aircraft leased from Cotswold Helicopter Centre. The new aircraft will fly to the UK on delivery over the next 1-2 days, dependent on the en route weather.
Cotswold has already leased out both of the returned G2 Cabri aircraft, and more details on these will be made available in the coming weeks.
Helicentre Aviation operates from Leicester Airport, and flies its Guimbal G2 Cabri fleet for pilot training.
The G2 Cabri is a two-seat light helicopter with a three-bladed fully-articulated main rotor and a Fenestron tail rotor. It has a composite-construction fuselage, and is powered by a 180hp Lycoming O-360 piston engine derated to 145hp. More G2 Cabri helicopters were built in 2015 than any other two-seat certified helicopter across the world, according to the annual factory production survey by GAMA, the General Aviation Manufacturers Association.
