The Dutch Air Force has tested skis on a Eurocopter AS532 Cougar MkII of the Tactical Helicopter Group's 300Sqn, ahead of the "Snow Falcon" exercise in southern Norway later this month. The Dutch have borrowed skis from the Swiss air force to equip four of the seven Cougars to be used by the 11th Air Mobile Brigade in the NATO multi-national exercise. They are expected to buy their own equipment once the results of Snow Falcon are known.
