    First East Coast Cabri Operation Opens in Florida


    Helicentre Aviation, June 30, 2016 - Leading UK-based helicopter training academy Helicentre Aviation has expanded into the USA, opening the first East Coast Cabri G2 operation at Kissimmee Airport in Orlando, Florida.

    The brand new aircraft was taken for its maiden flight in US airspace last week after being shipped from the Guimbal factory in Marseille, France and re-assembled by engineers from US distributor Precision Helicopters.

    Chairman Chris Line flew the helicopter into Kissimmee Airport on Saturday.

    The operation was initially set up to accommodate those in the hour-building phase of their professional career courses at the UK academy, including students undergoing the BSc (Hons) degree course, and winners of the academy’s scholarship programme.

    The facility will provide students with opportunities to broaden their aviation experience by operating the helicopter in a new environment, better preparing them for the global job market once qualified as professional pilots. Other benefits include significant cost savings and increased continuity for hour-builders, particularly during the UK wintertime.

    Future developments are by no means limited to hour-building activity, in fact the two-seat piston-engine helicopter has already attracted a huge amount of local interest. Arrangements to expand the operation further are already underway, and plans include the ability to conduct FAA training as a Part 141 facility as well as providing EASA training under the Academy’s existing UK ATO approval. It is expected that an order for at least one additional Cabri G2 airframe will be placed imminently.
