For the majority operated in Europe (641 units)
Airbus Helicopters delivered the 1300th aircraft from the H-135-family.
The global fleet of this type has accumulated a total of more than 4.5 million flight hours since the entry into service of the first unit in 1996. More than 300 customers in 60 countries use helicopters from the H-135 family for a wide range of missions (Emergency Medical Services-EMS-, law enforcement, corporate transport, off-shore wind and military flight training). The majority of the lightweight twin-engine helicopters of this type are operated in Europe (641), followed by North America (316) and Asia (195).
The integration of Airbus Helicopter’s Helionix avionics suite in 2016 underlines the constant evolution of the model to help meet customers’ needs. The simple and intuitive avionics system incorporates a 4-axis-autopilot –already in use with the H-175 and H-145- further reduces pilots’ workload and provides a level of safety.
