DCI wins EDA “Helicopter Basic Flying Training Syllabus” Study

February 17, 2014

Défense Conseil International (DCI) just won the bid “Helicopter Basic Flying Training Syllabus Harmonisation Study (2 HS)” launched by the European Defence Agency (EDA). The study, which will be presented next June, is aiming at implementing a European reference syllabus concerning the ab initio training of helicopter pilots.

The importance of this project had been pointed out during helicopter training exercises at the European level. Between 2009 and 2013, 123 helicopters, around 800 crews and 5000 support personnel were deployed in multinational exercises which took place in France (Gap), Spain, Italy, Portugal and Belgium.

“We are looking forward to continuing our cooperation with the European Defence Agency concerning the training of helicopter pilots” declared General Patrick Tanguy, Executive Vice-President of DCI-COFRAS. “This significant and current matter requires a strong involvement of everyone tosearch for synergies which are strengthening the European Security and Defence Policy.”
