    Brazilian Wild Lynx First Landing on Ship

    Helis, August 02, 2019 - Brazilian Navy’ 1st Reconnaissance and Attack Helicopter Squadron (EsqdHA-1) succesfully completed its first landing aboard a ship with the new modernized Wild Lynx helicopter AH-11B last July 20 during the Barroso (V34) corvette re-qualifications.

    The maneuvering included three controlled approaches under Visual Meteorological Conditions, one pick-up, one vertical replenishment or VERTREP and four controlled approaches under Instrument Meteorological Conditions.

    The success of these first trials means EsqdHA-1 is now ready to send helicopter serial N-4004 to the “Lebanon XVI” deployment in the Mediterranean scheduled for August 4th.

    The Brazilian Navy signed contract in 2014 to upgraded eight Wild Lynx by Leonardo at Yeovil, UK. The helicopters were originally Mk21 acquired in 1978 and upgraded as Mk21A Super Lynx in 2003. The first flight of the Mk21B was in September 2017 and the fleet upgrade is scheduled to be completed by 2020.

    The Wild Lynx Mk21B is powered by two new generation CTS800-4N engines, already used on the Super Lynx 300 and the AW159 helicopters, which provide the helicopters with major performance improvements, especially in hot environments, increasing payload and mission effectiveness.

    A new glass cockpit will be complimented by an advanced avionic suite comprising a tactical processor, satellite based navigation system, civil navigation aids including a Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), Automatic Identification System (AIS), radar warning receiver/electronic surveillance measures integrated with countermeasures dispensers and a full Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible cockpit, together with a new electrically powered rescue hoist.
