The Military Police of São Paulo signed an agreement with Turbomeca (Safran group) for the retrofit of at least single-engine helicopters, over a period of two years. They will convert their AS350 B helicopters, powered with Arriel 1B engines, into AS350 B2 helicopters, powered with Arriel 1D1 engine.

"We are proud of the confidence that the Military Police of São Paulo has placed in Turbomeca do Brasil since more than 15 years. We have been building a strong relationship with them, based on close partnership and constant dialogue.", explained François Haas, CEO of Turbomeca do Brasil.

“Due to the World Cup in 2014, the Police Military of São Paulo intend to operate a standard fleet. This retrofit process will enable them top possess 21 engines Arriel 1D1 by the end of  2013, making the maintenance much more easier”, added Murilo Pignataro, Customer Support Manager of Turbomeca do Brasil.
