I'm still wondering why they got rid of the Bell 206/OH-58s in the first place. Also, what is the first helicopter IDF/AF flight academy cadets now learn to fly in? The UH-60?  Confused

see: http://home.sprynet.com/~anneled/IAFinventory.html

The MD500s are gone, but they still have some 206s for training.

They want the Dhruv because the air force doesn't have much money to work with and the Dhruv is probably rather cheap.

Simple the Dhruv is cheap for the level of sopohistication it offers!

But now that the Yanks are giving them the choppers for free (thanks to the Jewish lobby?) the Israelis seem to have gone back to their old benefactors. Guess it pays to kiss ass eh?
