PARIS 2009: Eurocopter takes Indian lessons


Eurocopter has learnt its lesson from the last time around, and is sending the militarised AS550 C3 Fennec (above, at the Paris Air Show) to India for the light utility helicopter trials. The last time around, it used the civilian version of the helicopter, the AS350. This became a controversy when it won that competition, which was eventually cancelled for various reasons.

Let’s just hope that it has also learnt not to use those who are close to members of the tender’s selection committee as its representatives while the bidding and evaluation process is underway!
