Helicopter Pilot Training for Greece

21 May 2013

The Logistics Operations Aviation Support Programme has successfully established a contract for the provision of pilot training to the Hellenic Police and Fire Brigade helicopter pilots by the German Federal Police (BPOL) Instructor Pilots.

The task was to train a number of Hellenic Police and Fire Brigade helicopter pilots on the AS332 Super Puma and BK117 helicopters to allow them to be able to operate the aircraft in accordance with internationally recognized airworthiness and safety standards.  The successful conclusion of the training was celebrated earlier this month at the German Embassy in Athens.  The Aviation Support Programme looks forward to continuing to provide these two relatively new customers of NSPA with increasing level of support over the coming years.
