Royal Thai Air Force Orders Four More Airbus H225M Helicopters

The Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) has ordered four more Airbus H225M (previously known as EC725) multirole utility helicopters, as part of a fleet strengthening programme.

 This follow-on order will bring the RTAF’s H225M fleet to 12 units by 2021.

Specially equipped with emergency flotation gear, fast roping, cargo sling, search light and electro-optical systems, these four new multirole H225M helicopters will join RTAF’s existing fleet of six H225Ms for combat search and rescue missions, search and rescue flights and troop transport operations.

 The air force will also be receiving two H225Ms from its earlier order, by end of this year.

This latest contract includes on-site technical support and continuing airworthiness management organisation services, fully supported by Airbus’ Thailand team.

“The H225Ms have served the Royal Thai Air Force well since the delivery of its first batch in 2015, and we are truly honoured by this renewed order, underscoring their continued trust and confidence in our helicopters and the committed support to their fleet,” said Philippe Monteux, Head of Southeast Asia and Pacific region. “With its proven versatility, reliability and endurance, we know that the H225 will continue to capably fulfil the most challenging missions. RTAF can count on our Thailand-based customer centre for continued availability of the fleet.”
