New Zealand Defence Minister Jonathan Coleman has confirmed that he is considering purchasing 11 Seasprite helicopters
16th May 2012
The cancellation of the Australian contract - which had seen
Australia spend $1.1 billion on acquiring 11 helicopters - led to the
aircraft being put back on the market. New Zealand feels that the many of
the issues that concerned Australia have now been resolved.
