DCI is announcing the opening of a brand new helicopter international training center (H-CIF) registered in Dax and located within the French military pilot training centers (Dax and Luc-en-Provence).

The H-ITC courses are taught in English or in French and jointly with the French Army Aviation (ALAT) and Helidax.

This new training center is meeting a fast growing demand from friendly countries regarding pilot training, from initial level up to complex missions management. These trainings are performed on the Helidax 36 EC120 equipped with modern features such as Glass Cockpit or on military aircrafts, when appropriate. During his training and stay in France, each trainee benefits from a customised support provided by DCI and covering accommodation, food and transport.

“I am delighted by the creation of this new centre which stands as testimony of the close relationship between DCI and the French Army Aviation. DCI has a renowned expertise in the helicopter field among friendly countries, be it in pilot training or in maintenance operations. We stand convinced by the success of this training centre aimed at foreign pilots,” declared General Patrick Tanguy, DCI-COFRAS Director.

Created in 1972, DCI is an intermediate sized service company and the French government is the concurring shareholder.

DCI is culturally close to the Ministry of Defence. Its main mission is to transfer to France friendly foreign countries the French armed forces know-how including:

  • Consulting and assistance throughout the life cycle of armament programs
  • Training engineering in the academic, operational and technical fields

DCI and its subsidiaries have been partners of the French Armed Forces for 10 years within the scope of service contracts and are endeavouring to extend their activities to European Union countries.
