Xin Chao Viet Nam!

  • Xin Chao Viet Nam!
  • Xin Chao Viet Nam!


Eurocopter, December 11, 2013 - The EC175’s arrival in Vietnam’s southern locale of Vung Tau on 10th December was given a warm welcome by Southern Vietnam Helicopter Company (VNH South) at their operating base at Vung Tau Airport.

The EC175 was unveiled with great pomp in a ceremony attended by close to 100 guests, made up of VNH members and their customers from petroleum companies.

A total of 9 demo flights were conducted over 2 days, comprising passenger flights and pilot evaluation flights. The pilots put the EC175 to the test with a series of evaluation flights at maximum take-off weight, performing activities including the activation of autopilot system, one-engine inoperative procedure, hovering and winching operations. Positive comments were received, with many being impressed with the power margin and superior performance of the aircraft.

When asked if the helicopter meets their offshore mission needs, many pilots from VNH South and customers from oil companies feel that the EC175’s range capability and capacity meet perfectly the requirements in this region for medium-sized aircraft. They can’t wait to see the arrival of Vietnam’s very first EC175!

With a successful outing in Vietnam, the EC175 is now ready to make its last stop of the Asia Demo Tour next week in Bangkok, Thailand. Stay tuned as we move to the “land of smiles”!
