November 9, 2017 – Helicopters Guimbal as announced the company has received recent FAA approval for a fifteen horsepower upgrade for the Cabri G2. With the approval of Service Bulletin 17-009, pilots will be able to use additional horsepower from the Cabri G2’s Lycoming 0360-J2A engine. Before the approval of this Service Bulletin, the allowed power was 145 horsepower. This new rating will allow the pilot to utilize 160 horsepower without suffering any negative implications for operating cost or additional inspections.


Operators of the Cabri G2, who are primarily flight schools in the United States, have been anxiously awaiting this approval. Chris Bailey of Midwest Helicopters who operates four Cabris with more planned to come in 2018 states, “The Cabri has been a safe and reliable training platform for our school. With the new Bulletin, the additional power will further enhance the margins of safety we’ve come to rely on.”  


To access this upgrade, operators must download a new software into the aircraft’s EPM (which is similar to the Airbus VEMD) and the update has left pilots leaving such feedback to the manufacturer as “It is a different aircraft coming out or into a tight landing area.” “So Good!” “It’s now a mini Astar B3.”


American sales have been good for Helicopters Guimbal, with the United States’ distributor Precision Helicopters closing out with their best year for Cabri G2 sales to date.

“Bruno Guimbal just keeps making the already impressive aircraft better.  Needless to say, we are very happy with this new feature,” says David Rath, Precision’s Managing Director.


The Cabri G2 now has nearly 140,000 flight hours on the fleet worldwide with no serious injuries occurring to date.  The 200th aircraft was delivered this year and aircraft number 215 is in production now.  Over 10% of the fleet has made their way to the USA since its certification by the FAA in 2015.
