The first Belgian NH90 Nato Frigate Helicopter (NFH) has flown to Eurocopter France in Marignane, southern France, after being rolled out at Eurocopter Germany in Donauwörth at the beginning of August. The helicopter will be used to train Belgian pilots and technicians.

 

The NH90 NFH will replace Belgium's Sea King in the search and rescue role and be used to support its navy. After some delays, the first NH90 NFH90 will be delivered to Coxyde, where its Sea Kings are currently based, at the end of the year. It will become operational in 2014. Belgian NH90 NFH pilots will receive training in simulators in Germany and Italy.

 

Belgium has ordered four NH90 NFHs and four NH90 troop transport helicopters. It will jointly manage spare parts with other NH90 NFH nations under the EU's pooling and sharing initiative.
