HeliGroup delivers first Guimbal Cabri G2 since becoming UK distributor
HeliGroup Ltd are delighted to have delivered their first Guimbal Cabri G2 since becoming the UK & Ireland distributor for Hélicoptères Guimbal.
The aircraft, serial 1185 from the factory in southern France, is equipped with the increasingly-popular Aspen Avionics EFD1000 Primary Flight Display System which provides the following:-
- An Attitude Display Indicator with tape-style Altimeter and Airspeed Indicator. To better fit the common ab-initio training mission, mechanical ASI and Altimeters are retained standard on the Cabri and the tape-style instrument could be shown or not.
- An Horizontal Situation Indicator with multiple GPS/VOR inputs and traffic awareness displays linked to ADS-B or FLARM.
These highly-customizable panels make the Cabri G2 well-adapted to both ab-initio professional training while also allowing a direct transition from ground to twin turbine, glass cockpit helicopters.
The new owner of serial 1185 – A Woodward Aviation Ltd – will base it at Wycombe Air Park. When the owner is not flying it, the aircraft will be available to Helicopter Services Ltd for flight training and self-fly hire, becoming the third Cabri G2 in their fleet. The aircraft takes the UK fleet to an impressive 26, with more to follow through 2017.
