Looks like te AC's trip to the US last year did the trick:

There was a promotional trip to the US undertaken some time ago by the AC on behalf of EADS (don't have the exact date). It was written up in An Cosantoir, I have the article at home somewhere.

students at the US special warfare centre have been using the casa for airborne insertion for some time.Im not sure if its army aviation or USAF support.

This further proves my theory that the Irish Air Corps and Navy are secretly aligned with the US Coast Guard. :D

Shh....its a secret!
C253 flew stateside in February 2001, taking from Baldonnel a route through Keflavik,Iceland,(812nm), St Johns, Newfoundland(1392nm), Bangor, Maine(688nm), and on to Dulles,Virginia(521nm). The write up of the trip can be found in An Cosantoir of Sept 2001(though some pages in my copy have July-August on them)
