It will typically be flown by a pilot and able to carry up to five passengers on flights of up to four and a half hours over 630 kilometres.
 
 The helicopter was assembled at AHZA’s Grand Central, Midrand base near Johannesburg, South Africa, before being delivered to Windhoek.
 
The Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism’s pilot was also trained at AHZA, and was one of the first to use the new AS350/H125 helicopter flight simulator.
