Portuguese Air Force “Rotores de Portugal” demonstration team has performed an acrobatic display at the “Festival Aéreo de Vigo” (Spain) international airshow on July 18.

The demonstration team is now composed by two Sud Aviation SE 3160 Alouette III light helicopters operated at the Beja located BA11 airfield by the 552 Squadron “Zangões”.

The Squadron operates a fleet of 12 helicopters, having up to 7 units ready to be operated at all time.

The fleet will be in the future replaced by a new type. The AgustaWestland AW109 LUH is seen by the pilots as a perfect solution.
