Tbilisi is where?
Georgia is home to 4.7 million people withÂ Tbilisi being the largest city and capital of Georgia. Â Georgia was a part of the former Soviet Union and most of the people speak Russian or Georgian. Â Well, without any Russian or Georgian â€“ off Ben went to Tbilisi!

Our structures technician Ben was requested by CHC to go to Tbilisi,GeorgiaÂ to install a wire strike kit. After travelling for 18 hours he landed, had a couple hours sleep, and was off to work!
A seasoned professional, Ben installed the wire strike protection system on one of CHCâ€™s Sikorsky S-76C+ helicopters. Maxcraft has had plenty of S-76 structures experience and CHC had heard we did the wire strike kits for Helijet last year.
The job went really well and was completed in a short period time. Â Ben got to enjoy a test flight afterwards and had a speedy turnaround with only 8 days away from home.
“People were extremely friendly, the food was great and the weather was in the mid 30’s with very little rain, and I came back with a great tan. Â CHC base staffÂ treated me like an employee. Great experience working for them.” â€“Benâ€™s comments on Tbilisi.
Good job Ben. Â We look forward to hearing about your next work trip!
