First Spanish-Built NH90 Goes Airborne
Eurocopter España has conducted the maiden flight of the initial NH90 manufactured at its facility in Albacete. The helicopter joins a fleet of two other NH90s built in Marignane, France that are being used as prototypes for the flight testing and certification. The first Albacete-built NH90 is scheduled for handover to the Spanish Army Airmobile Force (FAMET) during 2013 as part of a contract inked in 2006.
