Second NH90 Sea Lion Prototype Takes Off

Airbus Helicopters is now entering a development testing phase of several months that will focus on avionics and software.

Activities for the qualification of the delivery configuration will start over the course of 2018 once additional modifications have been made to the prototype.

Despite the very demanding timetable, Airbus expects deliveries to the German Navy will start at the end of 2019.

Final assembly of the first Sea Lion series production aircraft also started recently and will run in parallel to the qualification.
