Argentine Gendarmeria Aviation receives AW119Ke Koalas

Three Leonardo Helicopters AW119Ke Koalas have been acquired by the Gendarmeria Nacional Argentina (GNA), Argentine National Gendarmerie).

Although they were handed over on October 26, they underwent some modification work with Modena Air Service at its facility in Don Torcuato, Argentina. Images released by the company on December 5 showed all three still at its facility awaiting delivery and they are believed to have been handed over soon afterwards.

They have taken up GNA serials GN-935, GN-936 and GN-937. These were all second-hand helicopters, formerly being registered as C-FNMU (c/n 14731), N963TC (c/n 14734) and XA-UWY (c/n 14718), in Canada, the US and Mexico, respectively.

Tie-ups between their former identities and new serials are as yet unconfirmed.
