Eurocopter has stated plans to set up a pilot training facility in India, based on a shortage of qualified helicopter pilots, according to the Press Trust of India. "We are already in talks with some Indian entities for setting up a training institute where we can provide pilots for the helicopters," Senior Vice President (Asia-Pacific) of Eurocopter Norbert Ducrot said.

Ducrot said the company was looking at three segments of civilian market in India — emergency medical services, offshore and corporate world, with as many as one dozen firm orders from corporations in the country.
