Arriving in September 2006, this HB355 is one of the latest acquisitions, apart from six Bölkows received from Germany in July 2007.
Mentors have graced the Uruguay skies for many years, various subtypes having been operated by both air force and navy. This T-34C is one of two survivors of this particular model. It is on navy charge with Escuela de Aviación Naval at Laguna del Sauce.
The navy has used several models of the S-58 for many years and this Wessex HC2 is one of five late acquisitions from the UK. Recently, the last survivor was withdrawn from use.
