HTM has signed with the BAAINBw a multi-year contract. The contract covers the provision, maintenance and support of EC135 helicopters for the Naval Air Wing 5 at the Bundeswehr base in Nordholz. The Bundeswehr will use HTM’s helicopters for pilot training, ranging from basic training to complex operations such as external load, Helicopter Hoist Operation (HHO), IFR training (flights under instrument flight rules) or night operations.
“This is a major milestone for our entire company group and it fills us with pride to be able to take on this important task for our Bundeswehr,” says Rolf Berger, managing director of the HTM Group.
HTM has already set up its new base at Sea-Airport in Nordholz and is looking forward to starting operations on July 19.
“With this contract, we are once again underlining the enormous performance capability and diversity of our portfolio, and we are convinced that we will be able to offer the best possible service for the required scope of the German Armed Forces’ naval air command in Nordholz,” said Andreas Schühle, Head of Business Development
The large volume of flights from the German Armed Forces will further strengthen HTM’s public security and offshore portfolio, as HTM’s base in Emden will serve as an important logistical hub for operations in Nordholz.
