On the German airbase Celle are the last still operational Bölkow helicopters of the German Army stationed (Heeresflieger). The Bölkow is at the German Army in its last year of its operational lifetime. From 2016 onwards, the helicopters will be phased out. Currently there are more than 70 Bölkows in storage at Celle. These helicopters are here waiting to be sold to a new owner or eventually scrapped if no customer can be found. The Bölkow is currently only used by the Heeresfliegerwaffenschule C (Army Helicopter Flying School) in Celle. This training is the initial helicopter training of the German Army. The Bölkow will not be replaced by a new type after its retirement due to several cutbacks.
