Two Babcock Australasia aircrew have been formally recognised for their emergency response efforts, after rescuing a driver who drove their vehicle into the Murray River in September.
The new upgrades are expected to help the company reduce the development timeframe and increase manufacturing efficiency.
Airbus Helicopters has confirmed that it has appointed Christian Venzal as managing director of Airbus Helicopters Australia and New Zealand.
The new twin-engine aircraft will serve as PolAir 1, 3 and 4. They will be used to support the Force in patrols, search and rescue, surveillance and specialist operations throughout NSW.
The incident saw the two-seat Extra EA-300’s propellor collide with the Guimbal Cabri G2’s fuselage, and the G2’s landing skid in return puncture the aircraft’s fuel tank.
