The Bangladesh army has formally introduced two new Eurocopter AS365 N3+ Dauphin helicopters.

The aircraft will be used for UN humanitarian missions and in general transport roles, says Eurocopter.

"In preparation for the twin-engine Dauphin's service introduction, an initial group of Bangladesh army pilots attended ground school classes at Eurocopter South East Asia's Singapore facility, and were trained in the subsidiary's AS365 N3+ full-flight simulator," says Eurocopter.
