08-Nov-20 9M-HCA Guimbal G2 Taman Melawati, Malaysia

Two Guimbal G2 Cabris were conducting training flights. Both took off from Subang’s Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport bound for Genting Sempah. Each helicopter was carrying an instructor and and a student.  It is reported that the two helicopters contacted each other in some way before each making separate landings.

This red-livery helicopter managed to make an emergency landing in a sports field and may have suffered damage to the port skid (or it’s well dug into soft ground).    See Liveleak video

The two occupants are named in this article as Datuk Ahmad Jauhari ‘AJ’ Yahya, former CEO of Malaysia Airlines (during the MH 370 and MH 17 tragedies) and Tan Chai Eian only had minor injuries.
