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.
