Air Methods, June 16, 2015 - Southeast Asian oil & gas operator Southern Vietnam Helicopters (VNHS) today signed a contract with Airbus Helicopters to overhaul two of its AS332 L2 rotorcraft.
Flying offshore operations on a daily basis, these two aircraft will feature a new enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS) once the overhaul work has been completed.
The overhaul will begin in the third quarter of 2015. It will be carried out by the Airbus Helicopters customer center in Malaysia, which is the regional MRO hub for Super Pumas in Asia.
VNHS currently operates 12 Airbus Helicopters aircraft: one H130, two H155s, four AS332 L2s, and five H225s.
The agreement was finalized during the 51st Paris Air Show. Immediately following the signature ceremony, the delegation toured the full-scale model of Airbus Helicopters' new H160 helicopter located on the static display.
