Moroccan Gendarmerie adds two H125 helicopters to its fleet

The Moroccan Gendarmerie has accepted two new H125 helicopters from Airbus Helicopters.

Both H125 helicopters will be used for search and rescue and firefighting missions and have specialist equipment installed including flotation gear, rescue hoist and cargo hook swing kits.

They will be operated alongside several other helicopters in the Gendarmerie Royale Marocaine’s (GRM’s) inventory including two AS355 Ecureuils, four AS365 Dauphin IIs, three AS550 Fennecs, two SA315 Lamas, one SA316 Alouette III, three SA342 Gazelles, four SE3130 Alouette IIs, three EC135s and seven EC145s.

The two H125s flew from the Airbus factory at Marignane, France, in mid-January on their way to Morocco.
