History

In 1967 the Cyprus Government acquired a single Fairchild Hiller FH-1100 helicopter for official transport and liaison purposes. It was operated by military personnel for obvious logistic reasons, and was the predecessor to the Bell-206L. Light, cheap to operate and easy to maintain. The aircraft was sold to a private buyer after its service ended, and broken up for spares sometime after 1974.
