Helicopter Winch training in Vietnam

July 2015

Kestrel Aviation was recently asked to provide specialised Helicopter Winch training to several candidates from the Southern Vietnam Helicopter Company at their home base in Vung Tau City, Vietnam.

Over the course of the training Candidates had class room theory followed by flight instruction based around their aircrafts, AS332, EC225 and the Mi172 Helicopters.

All Candidates successfully completed the training and were awarded their Certificate of Competency.

Two senior flight engineers carried out further advanced training to obtain their winch instructors approval to assist the company to maintain internal crew recency training.

The level of attention and commitment from the Candidates was impressive, together with the friendly and professional support from all concerned made for a positive outcome for everyone.
