Third Airbus H160 Prototype Gets New Livery

The third H160 prototype has received a fresh coat of paint.

The helicopter now features a striking “carbon” livery designed as a nod to the Airbus A350 XWB MSN2 flight-test aircraft.

 Both aircraft are produced using advanced composite materials supplied by Airbus’ long term partner, Hexcel.

The H160 is the first civil helicopter equipped with a full composite fuselage, the advantages of which include a lighter fuel-saving airframe, performance optimization and simplified maintenance.

The H160 joins Airbus Helicopters' product range between the H145 (formerly EC145) and the H175 (formerly EC175). Configurations being developed include offshore transportation, business and private aviation, public services, and commercial passenger transport. The H160 was first unveiled at the Heli-Expo trade show in March 2015.
