Aero-News Quote of the Day
"It gives us great pleasure to celebrate the operational readiness of this new aircraft, twenty years after the last helicopter was delivered to the Italian Air Force. This significant event is the first major step in support of the service’s modernization programme which will also see the HH-101 “CAESAR” replacing the HH-3F Pelicans in the Combat SAR role. The HH-139A will complement the HH-101s while providing a leap forward in operational capabilities and cost effectiveness compared to the present fleet of HH-3Fs and HH-212s.”
