Northumbria Helicopters becomes tenth UK Guimbal Cabri School


Northumbria Helicopters, based at Newcastle Airport, have become the tenth training school to offer the Guimbal G2 Cabri in the UK.


Northumbria Helicopters becomes tenth UK Guimbal Cabri School


Cotswold Helicopter Centre, April 06, 2016 - Kemble – Northumbria Helicopters, based at Newcastle Airport, have become the tenth training school to offer the Guimbal G2 Cabri in the UK.

The company, now Britain’s most northerly Cabri operator, has taken a helicopter on lease from Cotswold Helicopter Centre. This will add to the Robinson R44s operated by Northumbria Helicopters, of which they have two at Newcastle and one in Northern Ireland.

Northumbria Helicopters was recently bought by Andrew Hutchinson, an experienced pilot with over 5,000 flying hours. Hutchinson has extensive experience on long-line work with Bell 205s, and the leased Cabri will have a hook fitted to it so he can offer those skills as a training school. Hutchinson is working closely with the CAA to extend the current approvals for Northumbria Helicopters, some of which had been allowed to lapse by the previous owner of the company.

Cotswold Helicopter Centre will be displaying the G2 Cabri at Heli UK Expo 1-3 July 2016 at Sywell UK, with at least five examples on site, one of which will be available for demonstration flights.

The G2 Cabri is a two-seat light helicopter with a three-bladed fully-articulated main rotor and a Fenestron tail rotor. It has a composite-construction fuselage, and is powered by a 180hp Lycoming O-360 piston engine derated to 145hp. More G2 Cabri helicopters were built in 2015 than any other two-seat certified helicopter across the world, according to the annual factory production survey by GAMA, the General Aviation Manufacturers Association.

About Cotswold Helicopter Centre: Cotswold Helicopter Centre is based at Cotswold Airport - also known as Kemble - and is well placed for Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bristol, Bath, Swindon and Oxford. We are not only the UK distributor for the French manufacturer Helicoptères Guimbal, but we are also busy with a flying school and charter work. Our fleet consists of seven Guimbal G2 Cabri helicopters, one Robinson R44 and an AS350B2 Squirrel. We offer Cabri helicopters both for sale and on attractive lease terms for UK flying schools.
