Changing of the helicopter guard: Cyclone ‘leaps ahead’ of Sea Kings

It’s easy to tell that the most recent addition to the 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron fleet — a CH-148 Cyclone helicopter — is fresh from the manufacturer.

“Some of them still have the new-car smell, which is nice,” said Lt.-Col. Travis Chapman, the squadron’s commanding officer. “We’re pretty excited to be ramping up in the 148 Cyclone age.”
