AHM achieves G Inspection
Airbus Helicopters Malaysia has carried out a G Inspection of a Southern Vietnam Helicopter (VNHS) AS332 L2 helicopter, the company announced on 29 December.
VNHS is based in Vung Tau City, Vietnam. It operates a number of Airbus Helicopters platforms, including the H225, AS332 L2 and H155, largely in support of Vietnam’s oil and gas industry.
The AS332 L2 helicopter has now been redelivered to VNHS following its G inspection on 8 December 2016. The inspection is expected to pave the way for a long term relationship between VNHS and Airbus Helicopters Malaysia with regards to complex MRO activity.
Antoine Cazal, managing director of Airbus Helicopters Malaysia, said: ‘All Airbus Helicopters Malaysia staff and management are very proud of having successfully achieved this heavy and complex MRO activity in a close partnership with VNHS team on site at Airbus Helicopters Malaysia. The G inspection was completed in good and positive spirit by both VNHS and Airbus Helicopters Malaysia teams.’
