The Ministry of Defense has signed a nearly €110,000 contract to train pilots to operate “Bell” helicopters.
The tender documentation required initial pilot training on the “Bell 412” helicopter for six pilots, which included a minimum of 36 hours of theory applied per pilot and six hours of flight on a helicopter as well as a minimum of six hours of simulator flight.
It also required periodic training for four pilots on the “Bell 412” flight simulator for at least four hours.
Last year, the ministry signed a EUR 30 million contract, i.e., a loan arrangement for the trade of three multipurpose “Bell” helicopters, two of which are new.
The tender for the training of pilots received the offer of a consortium consisting of the Spanish "Pegasus aviation" and the Montenegrin "Li commerce".
Pilot training on helicopters and simulators will be conducted by Spanish instructors.
