TYPE 20 RE-EDITION
Throughout the 1950s and 1960s Airain was one of the selected suppliers of the Type 20 model for the French Army and specifically to the helicopter pilots of the ALAT units (Aviation Légère de l’Armée de Terre).
The all new Airain Type 20 Re-Edition faithfully matches in every detail the design and specifications of the brand’s original 1950’s Type 20.
