24th May 2012 - 15:47 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Eurocopter de México and Turbomeca México have signed a cooperation agreement for the training of helicopter maintenance technicians and recently opened their first joint training centre in Mexico. The companies made the announcement in a 23 May, 2012 statement.

This new centre will complement the training activities by EMSA, which has already provided training for more than 150 technicians and 100 helicopter pilots since 2010. From now on, operators in the region will benefit from complete helicopter training in Spanish and in one location, focusing on four basic areas: mechanics, avionics, piloting and engine maintenance.

According to the companies, the new joint training centre has 3 theoretical and practical classrooms offering courses to familiarise trainees with the parts and tools necessary for maintenance of Turbomeca’s Arriel and Makila models, the engines used in Eurocopter’s AS350, EC130, EC145, EC225 and EC725 helicopters and the Dauphin family of helicopters.
