First Serial H160 Takes Off with Special Livery

The first serial Airbus H160 to roll off the brand new assembly line in Marignane, France, performed a flight demonstration on Monday in front of the H160 team in an end-of-the-year celebration of the programme’s achievements in 2018.

The H160’s unique livery is a testimony to the several hundred people working towards the platform’s certification at the end of next year, the programme’s industrial maturity, and its seamless entry into service, as they have all signed the helicopter. Click to enlarge.

The helicopter, which will be delivered to launch customer Babcock in 2020, had only performed its maiden flight on 14 December.

The aircraft’s unique livery is a testimony to the several hundred people working towards the platform’s certification at the end of next year, the programme’s industrial maturity, and its seamless entry into service, as they have all signed the helicopter.

The first serial aircraft will join the three prototypes, which have already accumulated over a 1000 flight hours, in the final steps of the flight test campaign, namely confirming that the modifications that have been introduced through the serial configuration have no impact on the helicopter’s handling.
