Madhya Pradesh Government May Buy New Chopper

As its lone helicopter has become old and its manufacturing company has stopped the production, the state government is thinking of buying a new helicopter. A state aviation department official said, “Existing helicopter is 13 years old. We need a new chopper.” The chopper has completed 3,000 flying hours. The maximum age of chopper with seating arrangement of eight people including two pilots is 20 years.

At present, government has double engine helicopter EC 155-B 1 manufactured by Eurocopter Company, France. As the company has stopped the production, problems related to its maintenance surface. Madhya Pradesh is among few states in country that owns a helicopter. Other states hire choppers for VIP movements.

Price evaluation

The aviation department is trying to evaluate the price of the plane, which crashed in Gwalior and is lying there since. After evaluation of price, bids will be invited for its disposal.
