Babcock to operate the first fleet of H-160 helicopters
It is the global launch customer for this model
Babcock is set to become the global launch customer for the H-160 helicopter after signing a five year frame agreement for the purchase of a fleet of H-160s. The fleet of helicopters is destined for EMS and other critical services missions starting in Europe and to be deployed progressively across Babcock’s bases worldwide.
With 68 patents, the model integrates Airbus Helicopters’ latest technological innovations aimed at providing passengers with comfort thanks to the sound-reducing Blue Edge blades and external visibility for both passengers and pilots, and the additional safety features provided by Helionix’s flight envelope protection and reduced pilot workload.
Babcock’s Aviation business provides mission critical services, ranging from aerial emergency medical services, aerial fire-fighting, Search and Rescue (SaR), Surveillance operations, and Oil and Gas transportation, in 14 countries with over 51 years’ experience in saving lives and protecting the environment.
