The use of a helicopter on a ship involves a complete chain of skills, from piloting and maintenance to the operation of the ship, which is important to maintain. The SPI Dolphins will take part in this effort alongside the other helicopters while awaiting the arrival of the first Cheetahs». There are about 40 different species of dolphins, all of which are marine mammals. For the French Navy, the number of different models is limited to six, with as many complex micro-fleets to manage. Here are the details : • 6 Dolphin N public service and intervention (fleet 35F) • 3 “Pedro” dolphin used for flight safety on the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle. (flotilla 35F) • 4 Rented N3 dolphin used for training missions (implemented within 22S squadron) • 2 Dolphin N3+ (detachment of the 35F flotilla in Tahiti) • 12 N3 dolphins are expected to be rented from December 2020 by a consortium of Heli Union and DCI. These aircraft will constitute an interim fleet to wait for the entry into service of the Cheetah. • Finally, let us mention a close cousin, the Panther, of which 16 examples are in service in the 36F flotilla.
