    Helis, August 05, 2020 - The Leonardo HH-101A Caesar arrived at Grazzanise air base of the Aeronautica Militare Italiana (AMI, Italian Air Force) as the new helicopter of the 21st Group, part of the 9th Wing.

    With a welcome ceremony led by General Achille Cazzaniga, chief of Special and Support Forces Command (Comando delle Forze di Supporto e Speciali, CFSS), the combat search and rescue (CSAR) wing accepted the helicopter beginning the transition from the HH-212 ( Agusta AB212, a licensed built Bell 212 / UH-1N ).
