SÃO PAULO, Brazil --- Helibras / Airbus Helicopters have reached another important milestone in their history. In just six years of operation with the H225M (H-36) Caracal, the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) completed 10,000 flight hours with the aircraft. 

The aircraft is part of the H-XBR agreement, signed in 2008 with the Ministry of Defense, to supply 50 state-of-the-art helicopters to the Brazilian Armed Forces. 18 aircraft will be assigned to the FAB, of which 2 are from the Special Transport Group (GTE). 

The 10,000-hour milestone achieved by FAB was also made possible by the strong investment of Helibras in the expansion of its support & service capabilities, in order to keep the helicopters constantly available. 

"We are very happy to reach this milestone. This is an important achievement, the result of the long partnership between Helibras, the Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defense, as it shows commitment to the quality and safety of our products, "said Richard Marelli, president of Helibras.
