Turbomeca and HeliDax celebrating 50,000 flight hours for the Arrius 2F
Turbomeca (Safran) announced that its Arrius 2F engines have reached 50,000 flight hours on the 36 EC120 single-engine helicopters operated by HeliDax. Made available to EALAT (French Army Helicopter Pilot Training School), these aircraft are to be used during the basic training of future helicopter pilots (renovated Cougar, NH90, Caracal and Tiger) of the three French Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force) and the Gendarmerie. The Arrius 2F engines benefit from a SBH (Support by the Hour) contract, contributing to the availability of the EC120 fleet and ensuring the performance of Turbomeca to support their engines.
