Airbus Helicopters announced it has delivered the first of two H215 helicopters to join the Finnish Boarder Guard fleet.

The first H215 arrived in Finland on February 28 following a training session at the Airbus Helicopters plant in Marignane, France. The second is set to arrive upon completion of a second training session in April.

The Finnish Boarder Guard already operates three AS332 helicopters aircraft and has in addition signed a maintenance, repair and overhaul HCare contract to retrofit these helicopters to the new H215 multi-role configuration. The H215 helicopters will be used to perform border security and maritime search and rescue duties from the Turku and Helsinki military facilities.
