    Suggestion to Paul G: Would you start a new thread on your previously suggested helicopter line-up for the Air Corps, I like the sound of it, and think it should be discussed on it's own merits. I would start it myself but it's your idea.

    I think the problem with that statement is his definition of the word "soon" as we all know it takes an eternity for a politican to get anything done. And even when s/he does do it it will probably be only a half hearted attempt or altogetether wrong

    When Smithy announced the PC-9m order, he told the press "a new contract for medium lift helicopters would emerge soon".

    Most people realise the orginal was cancelled because it was an almighty cock-up of a tender. It wasn't really to do with cuts. Just suited DoD to cancel it using that excuse.

    I gues that's politics for ya. I don't know if we should complain so much about these new jets lets face it they will probably be the only new jets we are going to get for a long time.

    with all the talk of cutbacks don't think any new heli's are on the way. then again its well and good for auld bertie to go and buy a new jet. that man should be stuck on top of that spike least then it will be something worth looking at

    What is the government currently doing about the contract for new helicopters? I know that the contract for the S-92's was cancelled but has it been put out to tender again or are they putting it on the long finger for another few years.
