German Army CH-53GA Takes Off

Eurocopter conducted the initial flight of the CH-53GA, the medium lift transport for the German Armed Forces, yesterday in Donauwörth. Test pilot Rene Nater and flight engineer Antoine Van Gent put the helicopter through its paces as a crowd of around 150 people looked on.

Training flights using the CH-53GA are scheduled to start in early 2011, with deliveries later that year.
