The company is preparing to ship the first pair of G2s to its initial distributor in China, Shanghai X-Square Aviation Co. X-Square plans to incorporate the helicopter into its ab-initio (from the beginning) training. An instructor and 10 engineers from X-Square went to Guimbal’s factory in Aix-en-Provence, France. The helicopters will feature a number of enhancements, including dual comms, pop-out floats and a cargo hook.
