The Ministry of National Defense is making every effort for the highly trained personnel of the Romanian Air Force to be equipped with modern hardware, said Defense Minister Gabriel Les, attending on Monday the departure ceremony of the 'Carpathian Pumas' airlift helicopter detachment for a UN mission to Mali.
Airbus and IAR Ghimbav signed on 6 November 2018 the final exclusive collaboration agreement for a period of 15 years, a document whose principles were established by signing an initial agreement on 24 August 2017, according to a press release sent to AGERPRES on Wednesday.
Airbus has announced it intends to build helicopters at a new plant at Ghimbav, close to the central Romanian city of Brasov, in an investment worth about 40 million euro.
The plant is to be built on a 27,000-square-metre plot offered by IAR Ghimbav, a company controlled by the Romanian state.
