The NTPS Fleet and Technology Refresh program continues with the addition of our new Airbus EC-145 helicopter. The EC-145 was acquired from Airbus Helicopters in Germany where it was a test asset and now that asset is going to be used by NTPS to train helicopter test pilots and flight test engineers from around the world. NTPS plans to use the EC-145 Helo in both our P&FQ and Systems curriculums due to its many unique flight test virtues and attributes. This new helicopter asset fits in perfectly with our training program as the first EASA certified flight test authorized training organization in the world.
The NTPS helicopter fleet is now second to none with numerous Part 27 & Part 29 birds from Airbus, Augusta, and Bell. The NTPS Fleet and Technology Refresh program is part of our dedication to our customers for continuous improvement in both our courses and our equipment.
