Eurocopter Opens North Sea Service Center
A focal point of the North Sea Service Center is its new EC225 helicopter full-flight simulator, which underscores Eurocopter's commitment to investing in solutions that support its customers' businesses. It also demonstrates the company's dedication to enhancing flight safety and reducing operators' costs.
A long-term training agreement was signed with CHC Helicopter for at least 800 hours of annual EC225 simulator utilization. CHC Helicopter is one of the world's largest helicopter services companies, and the simulator training at Eurocopter's Aberdeen centre will host pilots from CHC's operations worldwide.
Eurocopter selected Aberdeen for the new facility because of its location at the heart of UK oil and gas exploration.
