    Third Wild Lynx for Brazilian Navy

    Brazilian Navy, December 28, 2019 - The Lynx Aircraft Inspection and Acceptance Group of the Brazilian Navy signed on November 4 at the Leonardo Helicopters facility in Yeovil, UK, the certificate of compliance for the third modernized Lynx aircraft.

    The Wild Lynx N-4005 conducted the UK factory acceptance test from October 30 to November 1. Arrival in Brazil was scheduled for early December. The final acceptance flights will be performed by the final user, the HA-1 Squadron in São Pedro da Aldeia, RJ.

    The upgrade program foresees the modernization of eight Lynx helicopters and includes the replacement of the current engines for the LHTEC CTS800-4N, a Full Glass Cockpit compatible with night vision goggles (NGV) and the replacement of major avionics systems, providing the Navy a real operational increase in their capabilities.

    The AH-11B, as is known in Brazilian service, will be operated aboard the Multi-Purpose Helicopter Carrier "Atlântico", the Multi-Purpose Dock Ship "Bahia" and as an organic aircraft of the future "Tamandaré Class" Ship.
