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.

"HeliDax reached a new goal achieving 50,000 flight hours in less than three years," said Jean-Louis Rotrubin, HeliDax President. "This has been possible thanks to the high availability of our aircraft and thanks to the close relationship with Turbomeca to supply the engines."

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.

The Arrius 2F is silent and has an operational design. With reduced consumption and therefore less polluting, the Arrius 2F has a Time Between Overhaul (TBO) of 3,000 hours. Since 1981, more than 2,700 Arrius engines have been manufactured by Turbomeca, totaling over six million flight hours for 430 customers in 60 countries.

HeliDax is, since January 2008, the first partnership contract launched by the French Ministry of Defense (PPP: Public-Private Partnership). The company is based within the French Army Helicopter Pilot Training School (EALAT) in Dax, in the southwest of France. HeliDax originates from a partnership between INAER Helicopter France and DCI, both 50% shareholders. Every year, the EC120 fly 20,000 hours.

Turbomeca (Safran) is the leading helicopter engine manufacturer, and has produced 70,000 turbines based on its own designs since the company was founded. Offering the widest range of engines in the world and dedicated to 2,500 customers in 155 countries, Turbomeca (turbomeca.com) provides a proximity service thanks to its 17 sites, 28 Certified Maintenance Centers, 18 Repair & Overhaul Centers, and 90 Field representatives and Field technicians. Microturbo, the subsidiary of Turbomeca, is the European leader in turbojet engines for missiles, drones and auxiliary power units.
