30,000 flight hour mark reached by Helidax


Helidax EC120 fleet exceeded 30,000 flight hours in less than 2 years of operation.


30,000 flight hour mark reached by Helidax


Groupe DCI, February 29, 2012 - Paris - Helidax, a subsidiary of DCI and INAER, announces that it has exceeded 30,000 flight hours on EC120 Colibri aircraft, in less than 2 years of operation. Helidax is the first public-private partnership (PPP) launched by the French Ministry of Defense in 2008. This partnership concerns the supply of helicopter flight hours, for 22 years, to the Army's light aviation school (EA-ALAT) in Dax.

32 of the 36 Helidax aircraft are available to the trainees at the same time, every morning. In 2011, 100% of the school's requests were met. This remarkable availability level results from a partnership spirit driving the school and Helidax as well as the skills with which Helidax has endowed itself.

«It's a feat to have performed 30,000 flight hours in less than two years», declares Jean-Louis Rotrubin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DCI and Helidax. «We think that the success of Helidax can be an example for other national outsourcing ventures and also for future military or civilian foreign markets. »
