In spring 2015, IAS won a call for tenders launched by Airbus Helicopters for the training of 25 Malaysian engineers and academics in the frame of an offset scheme for the EC725.

Divided into five modules, the Helicopter Technology training started in February 2016 and ended on the 25th of November. Focusing on specific topics such as airworthiness and vibration issues, each of the five sessions was implemented partly at IAS premises in Toulouse and partly on the Airbus Helicopters site in Marignane.

This training action allowed 25 more professionals to join the IAS Alumni Network, which already gathers some fifty alumni in Malaysia, a country with which we have been working for nearly 20 years.
