On May 27th2014, the Royal Jordanian Air Force and Airbus Helicopters celebrated over 30 years of relationship and fruitful cooperation with a special anniversary event under the leadership of HRH Prince Feisal Bin Al Hussein and full invaluable cooperation of the Royal Jordanian Air Force at Amman, Jordan.

The Royal Jordanian Air Force is currently operating three types of Airbus Helicopters: 7 Ecureuil A350 single engine helicopters for training and VIP mission, 8 EC635 3T-Class twin engines helicopters for transport and 10 Super Puma AS332 10T-Class helicopters for SAR, EMS and Transport.

The most recent accomplishments were the contract awards of the Ecureuil AS350 helicopters overhaul performed by the Airbus Helicopters subsidiary established in South Africa and the Super Puma AS332 helicopters overhaul to be performed by the Airbus Helicopters subsidiary established in Romania and by the RJAF in Jordan.

“This milestone is a significant achievement and demonstrates the robust and long-lasting partnership. We are proud of our role in supporting the Royal Jordanian Air Force Airbus Helicopters’ fleet and its operations. The maintenance center recently opened by the Royal Jordanian Air Force at Amman to overhaul locally its Super Puma fleet is another tremendous outcome of our cooperation which will continue in the next decades. The best is yet to come,” said Loïc Porcheron, Airbus Helicopters’ Vice President for Middle East and Africa, Global Business and Services.
