Erickson Incorporated has contracted with Chilcott Inc. to provide flight training for the Fuerza Aerea Uruguaya (FAU or Uruguayan Air Force) helicopter pilots.

The training will be conducted entirely in Spanish and under the agreement, Erickson pilot instructors will train FAU pilots in preparation for work on the United National Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO).

Erickson instructor pilots will provide ground refresher training and more than 200 hours of supervised flight currency training on a Bell 412 aircraft at Erickson's facility in McMinnville, Oregon. The training will be completed before scheduled UN mission pilot rotations in the third quarter of 2015.
