The aircraft were loaded into containers in Ankara and transported to Gebze, where they sailed on a direct service to Savannah, USA.

After the ocean transport, specialised trailers were once again used for the road transport – this time for a 400 mile (643.74 km) journey to Crestview in Florida.

Aubrey Inston, Talk Cargo co-founder, said: “Global helicopter logistics is a delicate science and very fluid, requiring a deep understanding of the aircraft, as well as Customs and quarantine compliancy in each country.”

Talk Cargo, Compass Forwarding and Pan Logistics are part of the Aerospace Logistics Group (ALG).
