French-based operator Ixair (Booth No. 1088) will soon be the first to fly the Cabri, a new light piston helicopter produced by startup company Guimbal Hélicoptères. The first of a firm order for 10 helicopters should be delivered before this summer. The event was initially pegged for March but a longer-than-expected production start phase has delayed it.
