Following contract signature in November of 2014, and in the space of only two years, we have trained the initial cadre of Boeing and Commonwealth aircrew and technicians and all 15 aircraft have now been accepted”.
Terry Nichols, the Boeing’s HATS Director, is very pleased with the results of the EC135 and commends Airbus Helicopters on having such speedy delivery.
