Having its own ATO, Wiking Helikopter Service GmbH is now in a position to carry out training not only for the helicopter type S-76, but also for the H145.

Presently, Wiking has two Airbus H145 aircraft at its disposal for offshore operations.

The in-house ATO makes it possible for the company to train its own pilots according to requirements and tailor the growth of the fleet with the qualification of the pilots.

The ATO is also available to third parties for their type rating and training needs.

With the additional aircraft, Wiking is taking a further step towards its goal of fleet modernization.
