    Another good investment



    Had to make an emergency landing after flying into a cloud. Cannot see these helicopters spending much time in the air in Ireland[img]smileys/confused.gif[/img]


    Air Corps probe emergency landing

    AN Air Corps investigation was underway last night into an incident involving a helicopter from the new €50m fleet after an emergency landing in Cannes.



    Two of the AW139 helicopters were on their way to Ireland from Italy when one of them flew into low cloud and had to land in France.


    Both aircraft, the first two of a four aircraft order, were to have landed in Baldonnel on Tuesday to be met by military personnel.

    Flew straight in to a low mccloud, eh? Very dangerous indeed.

        given what happened in Waterford a few years ago where four officers were killed in similar conditions, you cannot blame them. As a part-time flyer, i can say that there are few conditions more terrifying than losing your bearings in low cloud.

          But were these not part of a new fleet, which would come equipped with enough onboard tech to enable night/blind flying? Suppose the pilots may not have been checked out on the kit mind you...

            Probably the most likely scenario
